Happy Friday

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Hi Guys.

Vlad is off visiting relatives so I'm in charge of our Blog this week.  This wee little one is Mom's newest lamb, she is made from Sherpa and her head and ears are felted.  She has little feet which are also felted.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, filled to the brim with blessings and sunshine.

Goodbye May

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence and Vlad

Okay, let's see - Mom - something funny.  Oh where to begin.  You all know that she is terrified of fish - both big and small, fears them all (giggle).  

She doesn't go in any body of water - ever.  Doesn't even take a bath, and we try to convince her that it would be so relaxing - nope, not gonna work.

Normally she doesn't put herself in a situation where fish would be, lake, ocean, pet shop, you get the idea.  But every now and then something goes wrong, could be a picture or video on Face Book, commercial  on the telly, a movie, but she will always watch Shark Week, and let's not forget to mention the movie Jaws.  How many times can a person watch that and STILL be terrified?  Oh, to only see inside her head.

Summer is here, and of course shark attack reports have made to news, she just stands in the kitchen shaking her head telling the people "just don't go in the water".  I mean she talks to the telly screen, normal?  Here it's very normal.

It's funny, and everyone laughs at her, but it is a fear, and fear can be very real and crippling.  But one thing she will never, ever do is make fun of someones fear, she won't laugh or tease about it and over the years she has heard of some strange fears, like butterflies.  Okay, a butterfly?  Well, it is still fear and should not be used to make a person uncomfortable or feel weird.  FEAR IS REAL.

But secretly, we all laugh at her and even she (sometimes) laughs at herself.  How could a fish get in her bath water?  It's only her in the bathroom, looking at a dry tub before she runs the water.  Beats us.

Wishing you a very happy June 1 and weekend.  Until next week.....

If the truth were known...

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence and Vlad

Ha, there are some things that can't EVER be repeated, Mom would tear the stuffing (literally) out of us.

However there are those things that we can tell you, like her stupid flirting.  It has gotten her in plenty of trouble and funny situations.  She has this way of giggling and to some (men) it seems to send the "I'm flirting with you" signal,  accident? or on purpose?  That is the million dollar question, she swears it's the accident thingy.  (Clearing our throat here), like last week over at Beaver Lake, she loves walking there and there were lots of little fish feeding at the waters edge, which (if you remember that stupid, hilarious, fear of fish), so her thoughts were on watching to make sure none of them jumped out and got on her (like how is that possible, we mean, really?) 

Okay, flirting - accident or on purpose - a gentleman was standing on the path looking into the water, he turned and said to mom "look at that huge whatever, all she knew was it was FISH.  She stopped dead in her tracks looked in the water (thankfully saw nothing) and then it happened, accident or on purpose - she gave a little shiver, giggled and told this complete stranger "I'm afraid of fish".  It just comes out so normal like when someone says "hi", back to the stranger, total silence, she gave another shiver and she was off.  Did she look back? Nope, it was her normal reaction and she really didn't want to see the look on his face, probably falling down laughing.

The supermarket, good grief, there are endless numbers of stories.  She walks in a large half circle IF she has to go past the fish department, what if the fish man threw a fish head at her?  Come on, like that would really happen?  Depends on who you ask.  Giggle.

Oh, this one is classic - again the supermarket.  At checkout the cashier told her he would check her out - in the 10 items or less line, there wasn't anyone in the store  so she felt comfortable doing that.  Of course, you know what happened - yup, a man comes up behind her while she is putting things on the belt.  She really was embarrassed and asked the man to please go in front of her but he said he wasn't in any rush and not to worry about it.  Here we go AGAIN, the giggle and then insisting that he squeeze past her, as he was she noticed he had a box of fried chicken and something else, she had to add, "if you didn't go ahead of me I would have taken that chicken", giggle #2, and right on cue he added "come get in my truck and ride to TN with me and I'll share".  Holy moley, and she did the worst thing, she giggled and shook her head no.  That poor guy, you could see that he was painfully holding back laughing out loud,  her face felt very warm and we assume she was blushing, he then began talking and telling her he lived in Asheville for over 20 years and he just moved back to TN.  The look on the cashier's face - priceless.

So, this is what we live with, it's normal, her normal that is,  and as we always say "she's Mom, gotta love her".

Felt Painting Progress

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence and Vlad

As of today, this is where Mom is on Scooby's painting.  She was going to make his red collar from ultrasuede, but all of a sudden she thought about red wool, giving it dimension, and it's going to work.  So that will be the next step, and she keeps tweaking areas on his face, but we think she is very close to finishing now.

Hope you enjoy watching her work on this project, she is enjoying it and sometimes works on it for 30 minutes, sometimes just a tweak here or there, and sometimes she doesn't even look at it.  

Wishing you all a very happy, safe, and fun weekend.  We'll be back next Friday, and it's time (long overdue) for some wacky funny stuff, the kind that can only come out of Mom's head (that scary place).
