So What Makes You Laugh

So What Makes You Laugh?


Question #1TV Show you watch because it makes you laugh each time?


Question #2 – Movie you watch because you always laugh? 


Question #3 – Book you have read that made you laugh?  


Question #4 – Do you laugh at funny animal pictures? 


Question #5 –  What joke always makes you laugh?


Question #6 – What made you laugh today? 


Question #7 – Who is the one person who always makes you laugh and why?

This was in a blog I just read, and the idea behind it is to provide laughter in people’s lives, so I am willing to try this, by answering the questions she has posted. This will be good for me personally also, going back in time to my own funny memories.


Question 1 answer The Golden Girls. I laugh through this if I am watching and concentrating on the show. Sophia is my favorite. She has some smug remarks for others that are younger than her!

Question 2- Home Alone, and A Christmas Story. These two movies always make me laugh my butt off, no matter what kind of mood I have been in. The crazy things that happen, getting hit by an iron in the head, paints falling all over their faces, sticking a tongue to a frozen pole. Makes me laugh now as I am sitting here thinking about them.

Question 3- I don’t laugh from books. If I read books they are about slavery, or trying to rediscover who I am, or true stories about people who have been hurt or abused and how they triumphed

Question 4- I do not laugh at funny animal pictures, but I do laugh sometimes until my eyes water, when I see the child in Al making funny remarks over animal commercials or a cartoon, and The Three Stooges

Question 5- Jokes that make me laugh. After thinking about this for several moments, I will have to pass on it, as I have not heard funnies for years, but I do remember the first joke I heard as a young kid, and was proud to repeat it. My mother slapped me for saying naughty things. It was, why is the school-house always red? If you had six periods a day, you would be too! Whack, that is when she slapped me.

Question 6- What made me laugh today? Nothing so far

Question 7- My best friend Lezlie. We have been friends for over 30 years, and she and I will laugh so hard when we go back in time and talk about all of our memories together, especially if we talk about the horse at midnight! You will have to ask me about that silly story later.

Thanks for allowing me a chance to go back in my memory box!!!!

Cars, And Christmas Story Lamp

This is the look of the day today, and then the sun would pop out for a bit, and then go hide again. 70 degrees, shorts weather, yipee!!

I had to go get a leaf blower, and I took Al with me as it was one store. He did very well, and we looked at Christmas toys that are already out before Halloween. The one blurry photo is the action figure moving, so I could not help it. In one of the signs you can see where I snapped the information sign stating you need to turn off here if you want to come see me!

We got home, and Al had so many cars piled up on his table by his bed, I could not even squeeze in his drinking glass for over night sips. I told him we needed to remove two of them and find a new spot for them. He instantly started crying and I knew immediately he did not understand. I explained twice more and he did not get it. I am finding this to happen more and more each day. He doesn’t understand what you are saying, he can not comprehend, unless, you say something simple like, supper is ready, period, no more no less.

He cried so much, I went ahead and found a place for two cars in another spot, and  then realized Parkinson’s was back. It had been hiding all day. I hate confusing Al, but sometimes I just have to butt in and make things right. He did get a big kick out of the Christmas stuff they try to sell you for commercialized holidays, and he even found this big window plastic film that you stick up with stickers. It is the leg lamp from Christmas Story. I placed it in his window and with the day light shining on it, it looks like the lamp is lit. He liked that through the tears. Well this day is almost over thank goodness. Hope he is going to get up for supper, because when he is this confused, he just goes to bed for a nap.
