The Outhouse aka an old fashioned Porta Potty

“When I rented the room, I did not think it would be this one! But its worked out pretty good after all.”

“Why is that?”

“Because this is the Portal.”

“What do you mean this is the portal?”

“What do you mean … what do I mean? This is the Portal. You know the gateway to another dimension?”

“You’re kidding? I’m not going in there!”

“Why not? It’s just a place where people do … well .. their thing. No big deal.”

“Yes, it is a big deal. And I’m not going in there.”

“Well then I guess you won’t be following me into an alternative universe then, will you?”

“Ah, come on. If anyone see’s both of us going in there at the same time, what are they going to think?”

“We’re in the middle of nowhere, what anybody are you talking about?”

“Okay, so we step inside and then what happens?”

“Well there’s a flusher installed in this one … so we flush.”

“We flush?”

“Yes, that’s what I just said, we flush.”

“Are you telling me we’ll be flushing ourselves into another universe? Seriously?”

“Look, I know it sounds a bit unusual …”

“… a bit unusual … a bit UNUSUAL?”

“Yes, but I think you’ll find it all works out in the end!”

To have a Post or not to have a Post … that is the question!

“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!

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!”

(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!)

“My Portions Are Magnificent!”

Two Peas in a Pod

As most of my friends and blog followers know I have two ‘substantial in size’ cats. They are “my guys” I have had them with me since they were 5 weeks old. They are now almost 7 years old. And as I say they are substantial.

Franky and Jonny

Both Franky and Jonny are gental and gracious, easy going (unless cornered) and pose in a manner that lends itself to great beauty. So I was most astonished, the other evening, when I came upon them where the light was rather dim, to find them in disagreement with each other.

As the lighting is bad the two photos are blurry but here is Jonny who is distinctly portlier than Franky and he is definitely taking exception to Franky, who off-camera appeared to be smirking at him. Truly, Jonny is in a most unattractive, undignified pose. (although if you look in the first picture at the top you’ll notice Jonny has always liked to sit in that pose, LOL)

Jonny showing his, um muscular physique.

and the second blurry photo is Jonny pointing out to Franky that he is not a chub!

Franky giving Jonny the word.

“I am not chubby, My portions are magnificent … is that clear?”

In a little while all was made up and the evening ended amicably between the two.

Animals are amazing and I love them all. I hope you enjoyed my playful take on my two favorite felines.

I hope all are have a good week and taken a little time out for fun!

With Affection,

A little humor here (very little, LOL!)

“So um, hey bud … pal of mine,
you’re just cleaning your paws here
… right?
I mean it’s you and me … right, guy?”

Sometimes keeping your friends close and your enemies closer is not necessarily a good idea!

Hope everyone is having the best weekend they can have (all things considered). Stay cool – or warm, as the case might be and take care of you.

Thanks for stopping by,

A Halloween Mystery – The Pumpkin Family’s missing Engine!

Trouble_in_the_Pumpkin_Field

“Dag blasted, Jack! What’ve you done with the engine?” Mr. Pumpkin was really angry. It was just about time for everyone to pile in to go to the Halloween party and with no engine in the pickup they wouldn’t be going anywhere.

“Honest, Amos,” Jack replied. A seedy look in his eye, “I just can’t understand what could have happened.”

“Well, it’s not as if you have to be a rocket scientist to figer this ‘un out Jack. Firstly, there’s an engine and now there ain’t!” Amos pulled his orange hankie out of his rear pocket and wiped his sweaty orange brow off with the realization he’d have to tell ‘Maude’, Mrs. Pumpkin.” He knew this would not set well with her.

In the mean time Jack had turned away from the pickup and was searching the ground.

“Jack, what are you doing now?” Amos asked, getting more agitated by the minute. “Looking at the ground isn’t going to solve our missing engine problem.”

“Well, that’s not the way I see it Amos,” Jack responded, scratching his triangular concave nose, while he continued to search the ground. It was starting to get dusk, and hard to see well. Thank goodness for the candle inside his head that illuminated his eyesight!

“Joe and Jeff must have run off to get some food? That would explain things! ” I’m trying to see if they left a trail behind for us to follow.”

“What in the gosh durn heck of it all, do Joe and Jeff goin’ for food have ta’ do with anything?” Amos exploded.

“Well I figer it this way,” Jack went on. “If Joe and Jeff took off goin’ nut huntin’, and they be the lead squirrels in dem cages in the truck engine, then they probably let the other squirrels out at the same time.

I’m guessin’ we’ll have ta’ wait for them to fill up and then they’ll be back at work in the engine, gettin’ it up and runnin’, at least that’s what I reckon’ll happen!”

Amos spat on the ground and went along with Jack to get a lantern, and some moonshine out of the shed. They decided they might as well fill up with fuel too, while they waited for their “engine” to do the same thing!

Halloween Mystery solved – The whole thing was nuts!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!
