There, That's Better...

“The difference between a man and a boy is, a boy wants to grow up to be a fireman, but a man wants to grow up to be a giant monster fireman.”
-Jack Handy

This week has been hard and it's only Wednesday. I feel like I don't really have an anchor keeping me from being swept out to sea. So I did what I always do when I feel this way - pray and read Jack Handy.


  1. Why do people in ship mutinies always ask for "better treatment"? I'd ask for a pinball machine, because with all that rocking back and forth you'd probably be able to get a lot of free games.” - JH

  2. Oh no, hang on in there! Don't get swept out to sea, it's cold in there at this time of year!!

  3. Oh my gosh, that made me laugh so hard! It's so true!

    Hope you're doing better, I'll keep you in my prayers!

  4. Hope you're feeling anchored, and happier, soon.

    My favourite Jack Handy is the one about the old lady. "When I see an old lady slip and fall on the sidewalk, my first instinct is to laugh. Then I think, what if I were an ant and she fell on me? Then it wouldn't be so funny."

    I also like, "I've never liked clowns. I think it goes back to the time when I was a child. We went to the circus, and a clown killed my father."

    Aaah, sick humour at its best. Thinking of you and wishing you laughter to get through the glum times.

  5. Hang on hang on, you're halfway through!

  6. i know how it feels to have a week sweep you up causing you to loose your footing...hold on dear. soon we will welcome the weekend with open arms!

  7. ha! that's how my week is--or at least starting yesterday. i'm so glad you are here with some jack handy. thank you! and i hope your week gets better, my dear.
    (security word: maters. that's what we are.)

  8. I want you to know something - we should be REAL LIFE friends. You and me? We're a fit. I can tell. I hope this doesn't creep you out! Hang in there... and come to Vegas! I'll cheer you up and we'll tell war stories about our profession.
