Yes, Mr. A, I do like to josh. I think you do, too.


Richard, if you haven’t already figured it out, I am essentially a goofball. A ham. A bit nutty.  Witness me below in my Carol Channing mode. “A kish on the hand may be quite contiNENtal, but diamondsh are a girl’s best FRIENDDDD . . .” Big eyes, big mouth, cute little hat.


Our word for today is “josh.” Not used as a proper name, mind you, but as a verb (to make fun of, to tease in a good-natured way) and a noun (a teasing or joking remark). Of unknown origin, first appeared c. 1845. (

I like to laugh. I love to laugh. It makes me feel better. I have so much physical pain at times, yes, and fatigue, and frankly, it can get depressing. So I try to find a funny side to it all. Laughing feels better than crying. I like to make other people laugh, too. I definitely have an irreverent side as part of my wicked sense of humor~

320335_456074347816070_113731264_nI like to believe a man with such lovely laugh lines and endearing crinkles has quite the sense of humor, too. And I also like to think you wouldn’t mind my sharing your “secret thoughts” or having my favorite ChaRActers hanging around my house.  It’s all meant in the most benign way–definitely “joshing.”

I saw this quote on FB, and I just couldn’t resist putting the words in your mouth, so to speak 😉 Surely some part of you does know it’s you we find sexy and not just the characters? That you, our Thinking Woman’s Greek God-like DIY Geek, is the most appealing of them all?


Of course, this is just the hard down TRUTH–no joke! 😉

Ah, there–I made you smile. And blush a little. You are such an endearing fellow. Come on, let’s be kooky together! 😀

  1. What a terrific post–I love this! I think our guy does have kind of a goofy sense of humor at times (one of the things I love about him, along with everything else) and it’s great fun to see him joke and laugh that marvelous laugh!

    • I love those deep belly laughs and those delightfully geeky giggles he sometimes gives, too. He’s just lovely. I know it must have been such a pleasure to see him laughing and joking in person. 😀

      • I wish there was a word that actually describes the experience. I’ve tried and tried to come up with one, but so far no luck.

  2. Oh, I laughed out LOUD at that secret thought. Too true, too true. And yes, humour conquers a lot, from physical pain to sticky situations. Those laughter lines are the “good lines” as someone reminded me when I got all upset about aging. I think they are testament to a life lived happily and humourously. The bits and pieces from the EE are testatment to that. And that makes me really glad – cos humour is pretty sexy, too.
    Thanks for that graphic – I think I have to pass that on to my RL RA-friend. She’d enjoy it, too…
    Oh, and please continue with the fun. I love it.

    • I am having a high pain day–lack of sleep, muscles spasming, weather changes brewing–so I really need to concentrate on something funny and light. Looking forward to finally getting to watch the EE stuff this week. My copy should get here today. And YES–a man who can make me laugh is very, very appealing. 😀 One of the qualities I most adore in Mr. Ladywriter. 😉 Share away, my dear. I like to scatter joy as I meander along.

        • Wow, Angie, so sorry you’re having a bad day–having rather a bad one myself with stomach problems again (thank God it’s this week and not last week!).  They started yesterday, so it’s been a long day and night.  Try to get some rest.

            • Very lucky in one respect–my BJ has decided that he’s in the mood for a big snuggle fest (now if I could just convince him to keep the claws out of my knee) so we’re kind of hanging out on the sofa in between me having to run around.

  3. From Arkenstone’s Blog of November 12th–
    So next time you write something, take a minute, re-read it. Then read it again before you push the send button. Two things might happen. You might catch a mistake and correct it, or you might think twice about sending it. I sent something yesterday and I should have thought twice before I sent it. Not because there was any misspelled words in it. It was because I was out of line and I was rude and obnoxious. I hope I didn’t lose friends over my stupidity. I humbly apologize to them.
