Friday Funny 01-12/18 (Convalescing In Comfort)


Yum or Yuck?


Due to my accident, I've been housebound for a very long time, (or so it seems), and I've determined Cable TV has 1000's of channels of nothing. Seriously, how many episodes of House Hunters, Love It or List It,  Say Yes to the Dress, Hoarders, Antique Pickers, Let's Make a Deal, Judge Judy, or old series reruns can I watch? How about the Home Shopping Network, surely there's something I should buy?

A Roomba for Denali Rose?

I have my Kindle with hundreds of books, so I read some, I have my new Ipad, (Christmas present, thanks Bill), I'm getting it set up for boat use, and I'm waiting on Amazon to get cracking with mailing my new card supplies. I have quite a few thank you cards to write, and I wanted to make them, versus using a standard store-bought card. 

Note to all out there who have graciously helped me, I appreciate you, and I will get that card in the mail, as soon as Amazon delivers the supplies to me. I want it to be special!

To you. (I love Minions)
A big plus for spending so much time in Anchorage, (I grew up here), is that I get to visit with all of my friends that I haven't seen in many years. They are coming over to catch up on the news, and laugh about "old times". I'm loving it, I guess this qualifies as a silver lining.

Trivia, (what else do I have to do), silver lining is a metaphor for optimism in the common English-language which means every negative occurrence has a positive aspect to it. Origin[edit]. The origin of the phrase is most likely traced to John Milton's "Comus" (1634) with the lines,. Was I deceiv'd, or did a sable cloud. Turn forth her silver liningon the nightWikipedia

I'm also having fun with the coloring books that were gifted to me.

What to color next?

I"m enjoying my extended visit with my family, and they have been so supportive, I highly recommend their B&B, but not everyone qualifies for guest privileges. 😀

The most comfortable spot for movie night, even the dog, and cat are nestled in there.

Denali Rose doesn't have a TV, or TV reception, and since we mostly live on cell data for our internet, we rarely watch netflix, or amazon streaming. I have learned that I am totally okay with that, no need to spend time or money on:
  • You're the father!
  • Buy this!
  • Do you love this dress?
  • This house is you!
  • You're guilty!
  • I'm innocent!
  • We're going to get you some help for ____ (-add neurosis here).
  • Any 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 2000's sitcom.

If you had unlimited TV, and time, what would you watch? Do you have hobbies that fill up your free time? Is your family as special as mine?

As always, we enjoy hearing from you, either here in comments or on our Facebook Denali Rose Sailboat page.

Friday Funny 01--5/18 (Moving Forward)

Yes, thank you very much.

Are you tired of the leg updates? I am, sort of, (livin' the life 😎).  Just for you, here's a link to a previous post, it's one of my favorites, and it consistently still gets readership. It's all about Gus, and as you may know, he's pretty cute.  Click here: A Day in the Life.  Don't read further.

The leg update: I had gracious boating friends take care of me for a couple of days at their "land" condo, and they made my New Years celebration, (such that I could), really fun. Here's what we did to my boot/brace.

Glitter tape
Tasteful Bling
They also loaned me a new walker, which gives me more mobility, and lets me carry things, as well as sit down when I get tired. And crutches, notice the custom color on both of them. Susie knows how to do things right! She's also a retired physical therapist, and helped me with circulation in my leg. Dan, her husband is an excellent chef, and we had many delicious meals. I can't thank them enough for their kindness, generosity, and hospitality.

Bronze, not plain silver

How about a mauve walker?

My niece doesn't have to be my chief fetch, and carry gal anymore.


Bonus shot of Rachel's cute, but kind of clueless dog, Sparki.

I found this sweatshirt online, and of course I'm ordering it! I'll wear it to my next doctor appointment.

How appropriate is this? A sense of humor about the situation is important for good morale.

What do you think, more bling? Have you ever had someone fetch, and carry for you? Did they like it?
