Tell Me Something Good

All of this rain has me in a funk. We've had nothing but rain for the last two weeks. Frankly, I'm ready for a little sunshine.

So, I ask you kindly.....tell me something good.

Tell me a joke.
Tell me about something great that has happened to you recently.
Tell me a funny story.
Tell me something good.

Here's a little Winnie the Pooh Rainbow hug to get you started. ;)

I found a $20 bill in the washing machine this morning and it wasn't mine ... but it is now!

On mother's day I met a few Moms of GLBT teens. Talked about the gay prom from the night before -- 170 in attendance. Pioneering our way to a brave new world!

P.S. Feel free to send the rain this direction.

Joke #1 - What did 0 say to 8? "Nice belt"

Joke #2 - Did you hear what happened to the man who crashed while riding his bicycle? He was "spokeless".

Joke #3 - Two men walk into a bar and they promptly passed out.

Joke #4 - A man goes into a bar and orders a drink. He faintly hears "Me too!" and leans into the conversation. Overhears man #1 ask "Did you live in Dublin?" Man #2 says "Yes!" and man #1 says "Me too!" Man #2 asks "Did you live on Livingston Street?" #1 says "Yes!" and #2 says "Me too!"...this goes on for a while and the man asks the bartender "What's that all about?" The bartender says "Oh, the O'Malley twins are drunk again."

Better? ;)

What do you get when you cross an insomniac, an agnostic, and a dyslexic?

Someone who stays up all night wondering if there is a Dog.

Good? Well the sun is out and the flowers blooming here in central NY. makes me happy, and I hope you get a dose of it too!

Oh, and I thought of a funny story.

So, I'm visiting my parents and my mother is over the top collecting cookie jars. I mean, she's got something like 400 cookies jars and they are All. Over. The. House.

My mother is also an awesome cook and bakes amazing chocolate chip cookies.

I'm thinking,"ummmm.... cookies..." Are there actually cookies IN any of those cookie jars, though? Nope. Not a one. She's out and I've pretty much slogged through every room in the house looking in EVERY. DAMN. COOKIE. JAR.

She gets home (finally!) and where are the cookies? Yuppers. In a zip-lock bag. WTF?

RLL, take a mini vacation at

They're running a special and it's only a 2 hour drive from Nashville. Even in the rain, the place did wonders for me.

An older man goes in for his yearly physical with his wife tagging along. When the doctor enters the room, he says " I will need a urine sample, a stool sample, and a sperm sample."

The old man, being hard of hearing turns to his wife and asks, "WHAT DID HE SAY."

The wife yells back to him, "GIVE HIM YOUR UNDERWEAR

I woke up Saturday at 1:30 AM to the loudest, scariest noise I have ever heard. The weather radio was going off. I was about to head for the closet because I JUST knew a tornado was coming. I live in South Clarksville, the Sango area just off Exit 11 from I24. The lights went out. I work for the electric company and found out we had about 10,000 people without power. I decided to go to work.

I jump in the van, back out, have to get out to shut the garage door. I then realize I only put in one contact, and I had given my daughter my house key. Well, no problem, work is 10 minutes away. But, trees are down and blocking the road. I turn around and go another way, but trees and two poles are down blocking the road. I go the third and final way, drive around three trees, come to a 4th. I get out in the pouring ass rain to see if I can get around and nope, I can't. I go back home to get the jeep. I find a house key on my jeep key ring. It's to the back door. But only on the bottom lock and the top lock has a different key, which I didn't have.

An hour later I finally arrive at work, dripping ass wet. I mean, SOAKED. And then I spent seven hours at work, and the lights in my neighborhood were out for 13 hours!!!!!!!

I thought the whole thing was hilarious! However, there were trees and poles down everywhere, and about 1/2 the people in my neighborhood lost some roofing, gutters and privacy fencing. Girl, it was BAD here!

No joke, but I had to stand in the rain for about 6 hours this weekend watching baseball games that never should have been played.

Feel better now?

Slyde said...

This has never appeared at the Chronicles as an Old Joke -- I must have been saving it just for you!

An old man goes to see a doctor.

"What seems to be the problem?" the doctor asks.

"I can't pee," says the old man.

"How old are you?" asks the doctor.

"Ninety-three," says the old man.

And the doctor says, "You've peed enough."

I booked a weekend away for August yesterday but made a mistake and paid for the whole thing instead of just the deposit! However, I just telephoned the company and they have refunded the difference until July :)

I made cookies today.

Biscuit said...

Oh, Lord, the rain. It's finally gone.

Okay, so the other day, I asked Bean to do something, and apparently I sounded rather bossy when I did it, because she saluted me and goose-stepped out of the room.

You probably don't need the feel good any longer, well hell we can all use a little feel good can't we. Hubs and I were setting up the motor home and I walked smak intot he awing arm and hit my forehead. He says "are you ok?" I can feel my face scrunched up and my eye closed like a pirate so I just say "Arrrr" sounding like a pirate. We both laughed and laughed. I was fine.

This morning I hear the baby ( our 5yr old cat) and she jumps on the bed stares me in the eye and reaches out ever so softly and touches my cheek. She has done this before and it delights me every time :)

I'm playing catch up while I have a few stolen moments tonight.

Just a funny for you, my cell phone ringer is "Tell Me Something Good" haha!!!

Cuz when the phone rings you HOPE that the person will, but usually they don't.
