Many people have complained of problems
getting the latest entry on the home page. Because Yahoo thinks there
is no problem with the home page on their end, I'm keeping this as a
permanent note for every entry. I update DAILY. If you
don't see a new entry in the index page for a day or two, try
refreshing your page. If that doesn't work, try shift-ctrl-r.
If that doesn't work, go to the bottom of the last page you can see
and click on "Journal Home." And if all else fails, give up on
Funny the World and go to
http://airypersiflage.blogspot.com, which has the identical
content, but not all of the extra stuff on Funny the World. I am

One Thing .....
that makes you smile:
The dogs always make me smile, especially their routines, like the path they
have decided comes to the house from outside, the way Polly calls the other
two when she knows I'm going to feed them, etc.
that makes you cry:
Oh lord, what doesn't make me cry! Touching movies or TV shows
(not necessarily sad), Hallmark card commercials, Budweiser dog commercials,
and thinking about all the people I have lost.
that you love to do on the weekends:
Watch cooking shows (Bobby Flay -- though we don't barbeque; Pioneer Woman,
Tricia Yearwood, etc.)
that you do for only yourself:
Work at the book store on Thursdays.
that you have in your underwear drawer that's NOT underwear:
I just checked and...actually nothing (unless socks aren't considered
underwear, then socks)
that you do before going to sleep:
lift up the edge of the blanket so that Polly can crawl under and curl up at my waist.
that you do within the first 15 minutes after waking:
Try to be very quiet so the dogs don't know I'm awake...check e-mail,
etc. on my iPad. Once the dogs know I'm awake, I can't do anything
until they are fed.
that's in your purse:
A cloth fan (it gets warm in theaters sometimes!)
that you actually LIKE to clean:
that you DETEST cleaning:
that other people would find odd about you:
That I spend half of my night on the couch and the other half in the
that you would buy if I handed you a $100 bill:
Dinner at a fancy restaurant. ($100 probably wouldn't cover it!)
that you feel you HAVE to do before you die:
The things that I once felt I had to do, I've either done, or decided they
don't need doing. As long as my loved ones know they are loved, and my
mother is either buried or otherwise taken care of, I'm OK if my life were
to end tomorrow.
