These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Tickled Me!

Have you noticed the funny expression you sometimes get when you pause the TV?

I was just starting to watch The View a bit ago, and the phone rang. The accountant was wanting to tell me about my tax returns, and of course I wanted to hear that. I paused the TV, and after a short conversation, I was about to resume watching the program. I looked up to see this .... and I absolutely doubled over!

This was actually a rerun so I didn't need to pause it, but I didn't know it at the time. Whoopie had been to see the Shrek movie the night before and had her hair pinned up in Shrek ears and was talking with a Scottish accent. Her expression frozen like this and the hair cracked me up. I hope you got a chuckle out of it, too.


  1. I am probably going to get this wrong but Whoopie (who I love) has nothing on Fiona (again who I love) man I need a life lol. Love the view
    its on my dvr recording everyday waiting for Mike to go back to work so I can catch up lol

  2. How funny. And yes, I do laugh sometimes at the places I pause TV.

    So...are you getting any money back from yoru taxes?

  3. Bobbie, I record the view too. Don't like to miss it!

    Caroline, I've caught some hilarious expressions, but for whatever reason, this completely cracked me up! So fun!

    I'm getting a lot more than I expected! Happy, happy!!!

  4. she kind of looks like Shrek!!!

  5. As if she's not funny looking ENOUGH!! LOL

  6. HAHAH--that is funny. We did that the other night with private practice and we kept pausing it to see who could get a funnier face.

    This is funny!

  7. I don't have pause on my TV but I definitely see the humor in this! LOL

  8. (M)ary, doesn't she???

    Dawn, I love Whoppie's unique face!

    Beans, I know! Usually when you stop it, the faces are distorted and humorous. The other day I stopped it, and when I was ready to resume, the woman on the screen had a sweet smile, a nice expression, and the thought that went through my head was "That's weird!" LOL!

    Oh, Patti, having a DVR with that capacity is the best!!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
