Bucket List

So this week, I managed to check off 1 item from my bucket list. 


I replaced an almost 16-year old 4Runner with a new car that I had been eyeing for some time. 


I never thought I would actually get the new car, but I am so very grateful to Hashem!


My father used to say:

It’s just something to get you from here to there!


And he was right, but it was still nice to replace the old clunker.  😉

Missing Florida Vacations

So many months into Covid now, and probably so many more to go unfortunately.

 

Just missing getting out and down to Florida for a little vacation.

 

The palm trees.  The sun.  The beach.  A little fun. 

 

This isn’t forever, right?

 

Hopefully, let’s pray, Covid will be over and we can live again in freedom and without fear of contagion every moment of every day, day, day.  😉

Super Cufflinks

If you’ve got to wear cufflinks then they might as well be Superman Cufflinks!


These will definitely make you feel special. 


Maybe like a quasi Superhero. 


Some may think you’re a little arrogant and all that. 


But maybe you just are hoping to be super at whatever you do. 


It’s good to have an imagination and aspiration, and maybe a little sense of humor and fun. 


As long as you don’t let it go to your head or to your pompous a**. 😉

Forgot To Bring Blood

So I go for some blood work today.


Lady pokes my arm, and nothing comes out. 


She moves the point of the needle around and around– still no blood. 

 

She says: “Hey, it’s your fault!”


I say: 

You’re right, no one told me that I was supposed to bring blood with me today. 


She looks up and says, “Okay let’s try the other arm!”


Then she spanks the arm…and I blurt out laughing, “hey do that again!”


Then poke, poke, and the blood easily fills a half dozen tubes.


She’s said, “You see that worked!”


I said:

I only brought blood in my right arm today!


If I could read her mind: “Ok, get the F*** out of the office.”


But she was nice and actually says, “You can get your results in about 3 days.”  😉

Merry-Go-Round and Round

Merry-go-round and round. 


Bobbing up and down, up and down.


Faster and faster and slower and slower.


Animal figures, colorful props, mirrors that reflect it all up.


Children smiling, children happy, what can be more satisfactory. 😉

Freedom USA!

Nothing says freedom in the USA like a nice Three Wheeler Motorcycle. 

Vroom Vroom!


Super fun and a perhaps little more stability for your butt. 


If the air is clear and the road empty, you can let the wind blow through your hair and the whole world go by. 


F*** everything! 


Life was made for living.  😉

Hope Amidst Coronavirus

This is absolutely what I call:

Hope Amidst Coronavirus.


Life is hope. 


The children are our future. 


Love and caring is our continuity. 


G-d’s is the Master over it all. 😉

Learning Hebrew: One Book at a Time

My daughter had a great idea for improving on our Hebrew language skills. 


Start small…as in children’s books. 


She got a few of these from the library and it actually was fun to read these. 


Aside from taking me back a few years in parenthood and bonding as a family over these, I found it useful to solidify my learning.


Dr. Seuss definitely had the right idea. 😉
