God has given me friends to laugh and cry---just live life with----today I am laughing---and hope you will see the humor and share a laugh with me-"Job 8:21"

There are 5 of us going on our hiking trip---I am training hard---but the dilemma may come with all the "Stuff" you have to carry along.  The first night we tried to put up the tent in Sonja's living room---the 2 "Spring Chickens" that are going with us ended up having to put it up for us.  Sonja and I did manage to get our rears in and out of the tent---with MUCH laughter---but putting that sucker up is quite a challenge--  After Spring Chicken #1 had to help get it back down and back in its sac---she looked at me and without cracking a smile said---"I am NOT going to put your tent up for you every night!"  Cracked me up---still giggle when I think of how serious she was when she stated that!

Now---Sonja and I have ordered our sleeping pads (for all you other novices like me--it's what goes UNDER the sleeping bag)---they are NOT self-inflatable.  OH DEAR!!!  I will be doing good to get up that mountain---and THEN I have to put up a tent AND blow up my sleeping pad!  I see trouble coming---SO I text Spring Chicken #1 and say:

"After you put my tent up every night on our trip, could you blow up my sleeping pad?"


"I can for sure---Plenty of hot air here!  Right after you carry my rear up the mountain!"

We will laugh ALL the way up those mountains---it's going to be a GREAT TRIP!

THEN for my second laugh for the day---my sweet friend Barbara sends me this advertisement:

I told her that if I put that on every night---once my claustrophobia kicked in--I would be running down the street screaming-probably without benefit of my shorts in a fit of craziness----adding to my reputation!

Thanking God for laughter!

  1. Laughter is the best medicine...and I think before, during, and after this trip, you are going to have to laugh and laugh and keep it up! Fun Read!


Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
