I first wrote and posted this about a year ago, I hope you enjoy:
For all you “Dr Who” lovers – a bit of fun! 🙂

Horton Hears a Tardis
The day started out simply pleasant
In fact Horton knew it was great,
His favoritest meal
the bestest real deal
Was of course a nut full of plates! (actually it’s “a plate full of nuts” but then it wouldn’t rhyme would it. hello?)
Suddenly, Horton hears a strange sounding
and thinks to himself “Oh, no …
Not Whoville again?
They just would not send …
In fact, this time I’ll refuse to go.
But it turns out it wasn’t the Whoville
But rather “Dr Who” that arrived,
In his tardis he came
Horton hardly could blame
The Whovilles for who was inside.
And so Horton looked at the tardis
and then, of course at Doctor Who,
he said “no offense
And don’t think me dense,
but exactly ‘Who are you?’ “
And of course Dr. Who replied “Brilliant”
“What a capital elephant you be,
for though we’ve just met
You already get
The person, of course ‘Who’ is me!”
And Horton looked first at the tardis
And once again at Doctor Who,
Still shaking his head
and wished for his bed
replied one more time “Who? Are you?”
“Yes I am”, the good doctor responded
“And most happy to meet you am I,
If you really don’t mind
and would be so kind
We must wait for the Dalek to arrive.”
Now Horton, as you know is a thinker
Deep thoughts are really his forte,
But Doctor Who was a puzzle
And in a bit of a fuzzle
Horton knew not what to say.
And so Dr. Who told him the story
The Daleks were bad guys, he knew,
So Horton told them (Dr. Who and his companions) to stay
And they left the next day (actually it was longer, but that doesn’t rhyme either),
The tardis, the Daleks, and Dr. Who.
Well Horton was glad when they vanished
Back to whenever they were from,
Now when Horton listens
He’s not listening for a who
but rather the sound of the drums (spoiler).
(you’ve gotta watch the tv series to figure the last line out!)
For all you “Dr. Who” TV fans I hope you enjoyed this little bit of farce! I don’t claim to have the talent of Dr. Seuss, but this was fun to write.
Have a great day!
Animals do the cutest things, without even trying,
bringing smiles to our faces every time!
Take time to smile today, a heart healthy thing to do.
“Hey Joe, that’s my post (post – get it all you bloggers, lol)!“
“Well excuussseee me! I don’t see your name on it, Dave!”
(Stay tuned to see how this plays out. Will Dave be able to keep his post? Or will Joe hang on to the post he now considers his own. Actually they both see a cute chick and leave in just a little while to see where she’s heading – so having a post becomes a moot point!)
Just a little humor here, hope you’re all enjoying your weekend!
Okay, now don’t laugh here but I’ve been frequently compared (by family and a few friends) to the Oracle from the Matrix (The lady in the video clip I assume you’re watching). And there are some similarities. I wear glasses (now) and I smile a lot just like she does. I have an easy going attitude about life.
I bake cookies just like the Oracle (makes me feel good and everybody loves ’em). I’m always spouting quotes, like her, and for whatever the rationale I seem to have a bit of a knack for knowing what’s going to happen in the future.
On the downside. I don’t smoke (she does). I’m not a computer program (although I like the thought of it – no uncomfortable emotions to be dealt with.). And I would never have beads hanging in a doorway, ever! Having said that, I’ll be happy to accept the other comparisons, kinda cool, actually I’m flattered!
Here, take a cookie, by the time you’ve finished it you’ll feel right as rain! Oh, and know thyself!
Have a great weekend, explore your mind, especially the parts you keep hidden!
Rock Humor – To be taken with a grain of sand!
* * *
First Rock: “Hey, you’re gonna love this one!”
Second Rock: “I doubt that very much but go ahead I’ll humor you!”
First Rock: “What did one human say to the other human?”
Second Rock: “And I’m supposed to be interested in this … why?”
First Rock: “No, trust me, you’re going to laugh out loud. You know those humans…”
Second Rock: “Not particularly well nor do I wish to.”
First Rock: “Seriously, this is to die for … it’s so funny!”
Second Rock: “Okay, okay, so whats the joke?”
First Rock: “What did one human say to the other human?”
Second Rock, “Ah… we’re talking about human beings here – they don’t communicate with each other!”
First Rock: “Oh … you’ve heard that one!”
Hope it’s good for a few laughs and that your weekend has been a good one for you!
(Hi, this was first posted a year and a half ago – but I wanted to share something fun and funny with your guys! – Hope you enjoyed!)
Okay, everything about the 60’s is amazingly retro. In my opinion anyway. And Oh My Gosh, this bed. I just had to post and comment on it. From a scene in the very campy movie “Our Man Flint” starring James Coburn (spoof movie that’s a take off on the James Bond spy movies of that era and great fun).
But isn’t the bed just too … well … everything? Don’t you want one? I know I do! And if you’d like to watch the movie – here’s the youtube link: Our Man Flint – Be sure and grab the popcorn first!
Hope your weekend is being a good one!
Okay, it’s always a good day to share a smile, not only to brighten another person’s outlook but to also feel better yourself – in the doing. So smile, and if you don’t feel like smiling right now … well then …
Have a great weekend, be good to yourself and those around you!
You do make a difference!
Dome Home – Safety Zone
Is there such a place?
In my imagination there is.
You can see I created (on my notepad) a DomeHome!
Weather-wise, not ideal (I prefer warm climes to cold) but considering most people feel the same, I have a high level of confidence that my DomeHome, my Safety Zone, will be high, literally! And I have a hydroponic temperature controlled greenhouse to produce the food I need, too cool (again literally) right? Did you see the thermo-controlled swimming pool? A nice touch I thought.
So there you have it. My DomeHome situated far from the maddening crowd. Now I am aware of all the melting going on up there in the Arctic, so if needs be I will be prepared to move my DomeHome to Antarctica. They have lots of penguins there to keep me company, again – too cool!
What do you think?
Will it catch on – Hope not! That would defeat the whole purpose.
Stay safe, stay cool, have an excellent week ahead! Remember to laugh and have fun!
Yes, sigh, no more secret. I do have a ghost blogwriter, the one who writes my inspirational pieces is “Teddy”. Someone snuck in and snapped this shot of him hard at work, writing the next uplifting blog. So now you know. But really, who better qualified to speak of unconditional love then Ted Bear, I mean … really!
Teddy Bear knows the secret
of warmth and hugs and things.
The Teddy Bear is wise that way
of all the love he brings.
Teddy Bear is smart you see
He knows just what to say.
Of gentle loves and cuddles,
Well, he always gets his way.
The teddy bear’s addictive
for reasons very fine.
And most of all I’m glad to say,
this Teddy Bear is mine!
A Teddy Selfie, (he’s such a ham!)
