Humor by Sheila Moss... 


Laugh, Laugh, Laugh

Did you know that April is also National Humor Month? Obviously, you are a person who enjoys humor or you wouldn't be reading this article. A little laughter goes a long way toward relaxing your mind and body. The effects of a good laugh last up to 45 minutes and can lower your blood pressure. I don't know about you, but my blood pressure needs all the help it can get.  MORE


The Seventy-Year-Old Car

Clackity, clackity, clackity. "What is that noise?" I wondered. No, the left-turn signal was not on this time. I could not tell where the sound was coming from. When the car stopped, the noise stopped too. "It will probably go away," I thought. "It's nothing." MORE


The Wrong Day

It has finally happened - dementia. I knew I was getting old but I didn't expect to lose my mind so soon.

I had a dental appointment the other day, my 6 months checkup. I had it on my calendar. I always write things down like that so I don't forget. MORE



Explaining the Winter Olympics

Have you been watching the winter Olympics on TV? There are a total of 98 events in 15 sport disciplines and it seems that NBC is determined to cover them all. We have become intimate with many sports, such as, the luge, half-pipe, and slalom, some of which we try to forget even exist except in the Olympics. Everyone already knows who the winners will be prior to NBC reruns because of spoiler alerts on the Internet.  MORE


Cold Day in Hell

Honey, Iím home!

What do you mean, "Where have I been all night?" Iíve been trying to get home. It is a nightmare out there. I was stuck on the bypass for over 15 hours!

"You donít believe me?" Look at me! I am half-frozen, smell like a locker room, and am going to pass out from dehydration at any minute. What do you think I was doing?

"Fooling around?"  MORE


The Cold Weather Report

Hello, and welcome to tonight's HD News Channel on-the-spot weather report. The weather has been unusually cold -- as if you haven't noticed the single digit temperatures. Sure makes me wish I could find my scarf and gloves. I'm freezing out here in this wind.  MORE




Beetle Mania

"We are infested with ladybugs, thousands, all over the house outside, coming in through every crack!"

It was a text message from my daughter. Naturally, it was at a time when I was so busy at the office I could not spare a second for anything, much less bugs.  MORE


The Blue-Haired Lady

The other day I saw a woman with long hair streaked with dark blue color. I guess I was a little shocked and that was probably the intended result, or else she simply wanted to be noticed. Maybe both. I could not resist taking a picture when the woman's back was turned. She seemed perfectly normal in other ways, was even pushing a baby stroller.

I wonder how my hair would look blue?  MORE



The Real Thing

No, I don't know how it happened, boss. Coke has been number one for over a decade. Everyone loves a Coke. "It's the real thing." We made that slogan up ourselves, right here in the marketing department.

And now we've been displaced, reduced to a mere number three as the best known brand in the world. It is downright humiliating. MORE



My Cat is a Junkie

It must have been a stroke of genius when my grandson named her Frisky. I have to admit, the current problem is at least partly my fault, so I can't in good conscious say too much. Nevertheless, a normal cat would not behave this way. Frisky, of course, is not a normal cat.  MORE
