The Question

Considering how last year went and the current state of things, do you have any plans for Halloween this year? Will you be going to any costume parties, handing out trick-or-treat candy, or just staying at home with the porch light off so no one will bother you? Please let us know!

I remember as a kid getting dressed up and loving that and I remember going trick-or-treating but I don’t think I ever loved it. When my kids were little I loved dressing them up and tried opting to stay home and hand out candy rather than walk the streets. I guess I just never saw it as a true fun activity.

Now we are in a 55 and older condo complex. I think this would be a great place for little ones because they could go door to door without having to go in the street but I have no idea what they do here. Considering I am a sugar-hog I will most likely buy candy just in case…just in case I want to eat it! Lol. Honestly, I do the lame thing and go to CVS the day after and get the candy for 50% off!

Is Gladys gaining weight? Hahaha!


What a picture! Thanks Christine. Hope you enjoy my piece this week:
Gerald and Gladys went everywhere together. Sometimes their behaviour was so humanoid, researchers often wondered who was the wild animal.
This particular day, the pair were caught playing piggy back and the picture was put up in the staff canteen.
Captions below it read:

‘Gerald, you really need to lose weight. This is doing my back in.’

‘Gee up Gladys!’

‘Are you sure we’re doing this right?’

Simply 6 Minutes: A Simian “Private Moment”

What are the silverbacks doing? Hahaha!

The Sound of One Hand Typing

I used to love to go to the zoo, because more often than not you’d catch the animals being, well, animals. Spend enough time at the zoo, you’ll see at least half a dozen animals relieving themselves, and if you’re really lucky (or not), you’ll catch a couple of them mating, or as we like to say, “having a private moment.”

When I first saw the picture above, I thought we were looking at a “private moment,” then I realized that no, the gorllia underneath was giving the gorilla on top a horsey-back ride. Will that lead to anything else? I have no idea, and frankly I’d rather not think about it.

We were at Hilton Head about 30 years ago, and there was a duck pond with ducks swimming around. One duck (pretty sure it was male) swam over to another (pretty sure it was female) and started poking…
