Tomato Montage Doodle Soup for the Soul!

A reheated and renamed past post!

All around the blogging world, people seem to agree that there is something so comforting about a hot bowl of tomato montage doodle soup. It warms you up from the backside in and out.

Add some tomato pasty scribbles to slurp, easy to chew doodle veggies, and the belly-filling goodness of chicken (?) and you’ve got yourself a winning prescription for health and happiness.

Even if you’re not feeling dumb or stupid, this healthy soup from the Tesla 3-6-9 Memory Loss Challenge is a filling meal for any blogger. It’s also a great meal to prepare for a blogger who is sick, creatively challenged or contipated!

You Should Not Question The Shadow!

What is it with you sometimes, anyway!? You sometimes come off boastful, arrogant and spew out a lot of hot air and BS!?



All I can say is don’t question The Shadow and especially Tony ‘the phony poet’ Spitsarelli!

Tony is on parole!

As for The Shadow!? Only he really knows for sure!


Some History:

The Shadow is the name of a collection of serialized dramas, orginally 1930s pulp novels, and then in other media.

One of the most famous adventure heroes of 20th century North America, the Shadow has been featured on the radio, in a long-running pulp magazine series, in American comic books, comic strips, television, serials, video games, and at least five feature films. The radio drama included episodes voiced by Orson Welles.

A Leisurely Virtual FaceTime Stroll

A Leisurely Virtual FaceTime Stroll

Cute Judy Lee Post:

I am unable to walk because of severe arthritis and fused knees. So on my husband’s afternoon walk we used FaceTime on our iPhones so I could come along as he walked around the community.

It was a wonderful experience and fun!

What Makes A Squirrel Squirrelly?

Yes! There are a lot of crazy squirrels out there!

And some of the things that really drive them nuts are:

If they sense you don’t share their worldview and politics!

Sound familiar?

If they return home after a long day of feeding to find that the path to their abode has been blocked off. When squirrels can’t get back their usual way they do what comes natural – they go bonkers and try to find a new way.

Sound familiar?

If you infringe on their territory or space which happens to be everywhere around them.

There must be a lot of squirrels in Washington DC.

Because they’re a squirrel. And that’s what squirrels naturally do?

As are so many of us!

If they have a sore throat and can’t make the usual chirping sounds and/or can’t expel a little gas!

A fart that is!

Because they’re bullies at heart, especially if they smell fear waffling from us humans!

Good hygiene can help!

If there are no Mad Squirrel Breweries in the local area!

Especially on Sundays during the Nutball season!

If you get to close to their paw-made leather motorcycle jackets or sissy ball bags.

But only in North America!

If the previous Homo Sapien they encountered really pissed them off!

Wait! That applies to most of us!

if they have been infected with Mad Squirrel Disease!

They must all be infected!

If you feed them. If you don’t feed them! If they sense you may or may not feed them!

What the hell does that mean!

If they sense you might mess with their nuts!

Male squirrels that is!!!

Female squirrels? The just harbor ‘nut envy!’


Does anyone out there have any other reasons to share!?


But fear not though! You see, squirrels don’t carry rabies. They are however known to carry the bubonic plague.

Of Slobbering Dogs and Plotting Cats!

A dog loves us even though they know we are not a dog.

A cat? I’d surely eat you if you were smaller!

Dogs are very hyper social pets.

Cats are surreptitious psychopets!

Dogs will sleep on your bed lovingly anticipating your eventual wake up.

Cats will sit on your chest as you sleep thinking: should I and could I get away with it!

Dogs don’t use mirrors to refer back to themselves like we do. No dog will ever gaze into a mirror and reflect, “So THAT’S what my ears look like.” 

Sort of like me when I sometimes shave in the morning.

The first time a cat catches a glimpse of themselves in the mirror, they usually go absolutely bonkers! They’ll puff themselves up really big, walk on their tippy toes and maybe even try to attack themselves.

Again! Sort of like me after a hard night out!

A dog will run into a glass door and think, “Dah! That was stupid!”

A cat will bounce off the glass; pick itself up, and walk on like, “I meant to do that all along!”

We all know that dog spelled backwards is God!

But did you know that cat spelled backwards is Tac! You know, like Id A’ Tac you if I could get away with it!

But whether it’s a dog or a cat, they are still basically cute and cuddly!

Well, surely not like me, anytime!

Just kittying!
