Afternoon Video Rewind of 2015 – The Collie Walk

Hilarious video from Smorgasbord

 

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

I realise that there are about 80 Afternoon videos lurking in the directory so from now until the New Year I thought I would rewind the top favourites of us all.. sometimes all it takes is a few minutes to have us laughing or crying.. the power of daftness.

I love all animals but having had three collies in my lifetime there is no way that I could not put this video first.. I have watched so many times and it always makes me crack up.  For those who have not seen before.. wait for the ending..

Company’s Coming

Reblogged from Vanbytheriver. She’s been in my head again.

Clean all the things.

Make it look like no one is living here.

Why do we do this to ourselves and pass it on from generation to generation?

My grandmother did it. My mother did it. Now, sadly, my daughter is doing it.

She sent me this clip with the note “this is me…every. single. time.”

I sent her an apology.

What the Heck! Old People Don’t Get Married!

Reblog of an old post.  Original art by Kathleen Swain who is now 87.  This is her story.

Nutsrok

Wuppin' Mama0006Cousin Katie got married!  What the heck!  Old people don’t married. An old man and his old, old grouchy mama came to visit.   I was only four in 1932 and got this news, like most of life’s important information, from my favorite eavesdropping post under the table. I pretended to play with my paper dolls as Mama and Katie drank coffee and learned Katie

Little Miracles: What happened to me last Sunday

I know just how this writer feels. I often wonder if my stories are worth telling. I want to hear hers.  Reblogged from Healing My Complex PTSD

Surviving Trauma

2012-Nov-15-FaiTh-630— — —

Down an isolated highway
through fallow wheat and cotton fields
past dairy farms
and herds of grazing cattle
I drove aimlessly
under an overcast sky
with no destination in mind
a tank half full of gas
I was driving
just to be driving

I would rather be home
sitting at my desk, writing
but my writing seems to be
going nowhere
and I am deeply discouraged

Why am I here? I wonder
What is my purpose in life
if not to write?

I come to a crossroads
now I’m not sure which way to go
maybe I should turn around
and head back home

Then I feel an urge
to take the road on the right
so I do
traveling down a highway
I’ve never driven on before

“Oh God!” I pray aloud
“Do I even matter to You
after all my sins?
Do You care about…

here piggy piggy (tuesday trivia)

Valuable information from The Shameful Sheep.

The Shameful Sheep

Fun Fact: A pig’s orgasm can last up to 30 minutes.

Am I the only one that’s pissed about this? This seems pretty unfair. What the hell, God? Is this the price we are paying for eating pigs? If we give up bacon, can we have one last for 30 minutes too? pigmask

As I was searching for pig pictures, I came across Esther The Wonder Pig. Have any of y’all heard of her? She was supposedly a “mini-pig” but turned out to be massive. I wonder if you can house-train pigs. Holy shit, she is cute. I want a pig roaming around my house, as long as they aren’t leaving massive poops on my kitchen floor. I’ve been obsessing all morning looking at her Instagram photos. Go look.

I ate too many… bok, bok, bok…

Re logged from Flipflops everyday. You will love this

Flip Flops Every day

…nuggets.

Does that mean I’m going to cluck like a chicken now?  Feel the urge to move my head back and forth while walking, &  moving my arms wing like?  I suppose it won’t be long before I stop to claw the ground.

As long as I don’t lay any eggs.  I draw the line there.

So, for fun, I google “walk like a chicken contest.”  (cuz, you know, I’m curious if there’s a cool video to attach to my post.)  Oh my GAWD…And came across this beauty.  I swear, I challenge you not to laugh.  This guy has it down

EMPTIER THAN BEFORE

Reblogging from MikeSteeden who speaks for us all.

Delighted slaughterers
gifted nurtured knaves
absurd devotional mimics
the black, black void your cage
now you are emptier than before
your whys’ and wherefores’ inexpiable

Aujourd’hui la ville de l’amour pleure
Demain est un autre jour
La liberté est morte
Vive la liberté

Carhartt Overalls – So Manly They Make Little Girls out of Grown Men

Re logged from Bzirkone. Love this story!

BzirkWorld

tieFive years ago I visited Mickey’s Surplus in Kansas City and found a sale on Carhartt overalls. I didn’t yet know the full impact of the Carhartt brand but I knew it was a pretty big deal because of a giant family riff some years earlier over a particular Carhartt jacket I’d found in a closet and given to the wrong male family member who procrastinated about returning the jacket when the actual owner turned up and recommended the jacket be given back. It took a while for that little deal to die down.

I found some brand-new Carhartt overalls on sale for $17.00 at Mickey’s and I thought…hmmm…Christmas is coming up. So, I dug through the giant pile of canvas pants until I found two pair in the right sizes, one for my husband and one for my son-in-law.

My husband was almost tickled pink over the outfit and…
