Last Happy Random Tuesday of 2020

 I'll be linking up with Stacy and Sandee.

Wow!  I'm pretty thankful that 2020 is coming to an end, but I don't think the first half of 2021 will be much different.  Do you?  This was my first full year of retirement, and I had envisioned being able to travel, go to scrapbook retreats, and see our daughters more, but Covid snuffed that out! Oh, well.  I'm so much happier not having to deal with my former principal, even under these unusual circumstances.

So, I've been thinking about the saying, "Don't put the cart before the horse." I was thinking about how my daughter is getting ahead of herself not yet having her test results back, but that's neither here nor there.  When I was little, I didn't understand what it meant to put the cart before the horse.  I knew it meant not to jump to conclusions or do things in the wrong order, but a cart and a horse?  I had no context for that.  I understand now, of course, but I wonder if anyone still uses this old phrase.

Stowaway on the Rockefeller Christmas tree??? I just heard this today!  Did you hear about the owl that was rescued from the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center? Apparently, this little owl, a 7-inch tall northern saw-whet, was stuck in the base of the tree.  He had likely been there for the entire 170 mile trip from his home to Manhattan.  The worker who found him was able to get in touch with the Ravensbeard Wildlife Center who took him in and nursed him to health.  Miraculously, he had no broken bones.

He only needed a short stay to regain his health before he was released back into the wild.  I wonder why I hadn't heard about this already.  

And now...

This will be us repeating stories to our grandchildren in the future!

Have a great week!  And happy new year!


  1. LOL, some really great funnies, thanks for the laughs! 2021 will stink too, who knows if life will ever be fun like it used to be for humans. The whole thing is like a very bad dream.

  2. I still use the cart before the horse, but I'm old. To me it means doing things in the right order.

    Love all the funnies. Thanks for the chuckles.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. ♥

  3. This year was horrible. The high point was retiring a month ago and the nuggets that make me feel uplifted - like the owl and the the laugh out loud moments from people like you! Here's hoping you make the most of 2021! May the new year bring you peace, joy, and happiness. I hope you too have a Happy Tuesday!

  4. You are probably so much happier not having to deal with your former principal because of these circumstances. It has been my experience that insufferable people only get worse in times of crisis.

    Thanks for the funnies, i appreciate it!

  5. I have a chronic sinus infection and to continue on antibiotics I have to have covid tests. I know I haven't been exposed and I *think* they will always come out negative (four times so far!) but that 48 hours while I wait even KNOWING I'm not sick with that is so stressful!


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
