Let’s put aside the serious talk and share some laughs, at least for today

These days there’s so much to think about, talk about, and write about that’s serious.

There’s so much that’s upsetting.  There’s so much that’s scary.  There’s so much that’s sad.

But today, here in central New Brunswick – that little known corner of North America tucked between Maine and Nova Scotia, the sun is shining (well, on and off), it’s above freezing, and the snow piles and ice are melting. Soon the snow will no longer be covering the hope of spring. Note the critical word ‘hope”, that’s so important to hold onto.


Hope: Our backyard, March 16, 2022. The St. John River thawing in the distance.

Time for some stress relief. Today I’m putting aside the serious talk and instead offering some humour that’s been making the rounds (thanks, Bill). I hope you enjoy these.  I can’t decide which one I like best, but they all made me laugh, even the cringe-worthy ones!








Oh yes, and Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

    Hilarious!! Thanks for the laughs, Jane. The bacon one reminds me of a fake tombstone one of my neighbors puts out for Halloween. It says, “He loved bacon. RIP” 🙂

  10. Thanks for the laughs! As the great Roger Rabbit noted, sometimes a laugh is all you’ve got.
