Is it better to suspect something (bad or hurtful) and not know or to have your worst fears confirmed by sure knowledge?
Sometimes one and sometimes the other. I can be a bit of an ostrich and sometimes prefer not to know things that seem scary to me. It’s probably better to know and take steps to deal with a problem but if for example, someone doesn’t like me, do I really need to know that?
What makes you laugh aloud? Crack up? Laugh until your sides split? When was the last time you had a great big belly laugh?
Never ask me “when was the last time you did so and so” because unless it was in the last week or so I probably won’t remember. Naomi and I often have conversations where we both end up laughing out loud over some silly thing, don’t ask for examples, I can’t think of any.
I also find there are some books that make me laugh out loud. That tends to make people look at you funny if you are on the bus. Whenever I read Gerald Durrell’s “The Picnic” or “My Family and Other Animals” I always laugh out loud. Emily Kimbrough’s travel stories usually have the same effect.
Do you suppose Noah had woodpeckers in the ark? If he did, where did he keep them? Apologies to the Darwinians in the crowd…this is merely for fun, okay?
Well, if he was taking two of every kind of creature he had to didn’t he? And there are still woodpeckers. I guess he had an onboard aviary as you would not want all those birds flying around pooping on everyone. Did they have wire in Noah’s day? Could two woodpeckers do major damage to a sturdily built ark in 40 days and 40 nights? Maybe God just told the woodpeckers to be good. (I believe in evolution but I like the story of Noah’s Ark even though it’s totally impractical.)
Why is “Charlie” short for “Charles when they are the same number of letters?
In this case when people say “short for” I think they really mean that it is an informal term for the name Charles. Chas would be short for Charles I guess.
Thankful, Joyful, Grateful
What happened in your world this past week that made you feel thankful, joyful or grateful?
It was my birthday yesterday and I received a few cards, yes some people still send them, and good wishes from friends and family. I was grateful they remembered. We had a nice sunny day on Saturday for our big sale at the Op Shop which I was thankful for as I was working outside. It was a really pleasant day until I got home and turned on the TV for the election results. I haven’t felt joyful since.
