Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade - my 70th and taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

Welcome New Year 2021

 Don't know about you but I'm having trouble reading any article that looks back to reminisce about 2020. Let's just close that chapter and look forward to better times in 2021.

But for the sake of a laugh, here's what a friend forwarded to me.

Here are 12 things to consider as we get closer to closing the door on one of the most horrible years of our lifetime. 

1. The dumbest thing I ever bought was a 2020 planner. 

2. I was so bored I called Jake from State Farm just to talk to someone.  He asked me what I was wearing. 

3. 2019:  Stay away from negative people.  2020:  Stay away from positive people. 

4. The world has turned upside down.  Old folks are sneaking out of the house & their kids are yelling at them to stay indoors! 

5. This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her dog.  It was obvious she thought her dog understood her.  I came into my house & told my cat.  We laughed a lot. 

6. Every few days try your jeans on just to make sure they fit.  Pajamas will have you believe all is well in the kingdom. 

7. Does anyone know if we can take showers yet or should we just keep washing our hands? 

8. This virus has done what no woman has been able to do.  Cancel sports, shut down all bars & keep men at home! 

9. I never thought the comment, “I wouldn’t touch him/her with a 6-foot pole” would become a national policy, but here we are! 

10. I need to practice social-distancing from the refrigerator. 

11. I hope the weather is good tomorrow for my trip to the Backyard.  I’m getting tired of the Living Room. 

12. Never in a million years could I have imagined I would go up to a bank teller wearing a mask & ask for money. 


Happy New Year!  It's got to be.

Thanks for the chuckles. I don't have a dog or cat to share them with, so I'm just sitting here eating with my mouth open and letting crumbs fall where they may. Who will see them anyway? Have a great 2021!

Just so very funny because a lot of it is, as the Brits say, "spot on"! Who makes these things up? There are hidden (minor) geniuses in this world!

Margaret said...

Yes, re-living 2020 is the last thing I want to do.

Happy and healthy New Year wishes to you!

Oh my! These are totally fabulous, Marcia. I love every one of them.

So right, Marcia, let's move forward and not backwards. And, thanks for letting me know that I goofed and did not set my post to no comments. So I retracted that statement and thanked all for their comments. Hope the holidays were happy times in your new place.
