Random Tuesday

I'm linking up with Stacy for some random fun!
It's almost the 4th of July!  Do you have plans?  I plan to stay inside as much as I can with temperatures reaching 100 or more!  I used to enjoy going to see the fireworks display, but with mosquitos that are as big as my hand, plus the heat, I will most likely watch them on TV.  I'm such a party pooper!

If you know me, you know I HATE, DETEST, CAN'T STAND snakes, not even grass snakes!  So why, all of a sudden, am I seeing posts about snakes all over the place?  One here and there - I could understand that.  But seriously?  So many!  A friend posted about a rattlesnake den with literally hundreds of the foul creatures.  Another post was about a dog who saved her owner from being bitten.  Another was about a man who opened the hood of his truck only to find a snake in his engine.  Another showed a snake hiding between the saddle and horse.  One was about a baby who got bit in the face and was hospitalized. And still another said that snakes hide in noodles (pool toys, not pasta!).  And yet one more was about a python in India who swallowed a woman whole! Why? Why? Why?  Too much snake stuff!  I despise them so much that I'm definitely not posting a picture of a snake here.

But I do like other animals.  An example is the cute little Corgi puppy our daughter and her husband adopted last weekend.  I can't wait to meet her!  She is so so so cute!  We used to have a dog, until he passed in 2010, and we never got another one.  Part of the reason is that I don't want to train a dog.  Another reason is that you can't just "get up and go" when you have a dog.  We have a cat.  Leave their box with cat litter, a bowl of food, and water, and the cat doesn't mind being left alone for a day or two.  Dogs require more planning.  They're cute!  And loyal!  But I'm lazy!

As a teacher, I'm just floored by how...?  people can be.  What word am I looking for?  Not smart?  Can you imagine picking up this cake from the bakery?  Or how about this one?

Funny!  What do you think of this pun?  I think it's hilarious!

And some more funnies:

And I learned a little something about myself this week:

I must be really intelligent!  Haha!
Have a happy fourth of July and a great rest-of-the-week!

  1. Those cakes — i don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

    Enjoy your Independence Day and stay cool!

  2. Oh man, I did it! I went down the rabbit hole on the links you provided for the snake part...GAH! I am so not a fan of snakes. Spiders and snakes I can totally do without.

    Ohhhh! Princess Nagger would be SO wanting to steal that puppy! She said the next dog we get *has* to be a Corgi! :) So CUTE!!!

    Those cakes!! I'm with you - how can anyone be that...ahem...not intelligent? ;)

    Your funnies are hilarious! And I love that we had the same one - two great minds and all! :)
