Change is in the Wind

By C.L. Beck










Twenty years ago, I wasn't gray. And I weighed a lot less. Didn't have wrinkles, either.

Philosophers say the only constant in life is change. I say the guys who said that should try living with non-existent hormones for a while and see what they think of that!

Oh, okay, so non-existent hormones have nothing to do with philosophers, but it does have something to do with change, right? (All you ladies out there who are low on estrogen and have a gun, nod your head and say, "Yes!")

In case you haven't noticed, my blog hasn't had much new on it lately. I keep wanting to change that issue, but apparently wishing that posts would appear magically on their own is not making it happen.

I don't know why not.

At any rate, I've decided not to restrict my blog to just humor anymore, in hopes of opening it up a little. Instead, I'll be writing about whatever catches my fancy. Which doesn't exactly make it a niche that will bring in money.

But, hey, maybe a long lost relative will leave me millions in his/her will. You just never know what's going to happen when change is in the wind.

(What about you? Have you made any big changes lately?)

Today is Blame Someone Else Day

By C.L. Beck












Yahoo, and yippee! It's "Blame Someone Else Day!"

Well ... maybe ... sorta ... kinda. Apparently, the official calendar dudes and dude-ettes of the world haven't quite agreed on it. Some think it happens on the first Friday-the-13th of the year. Others vote for April, or September.

What the heck! I say let's have it on all those days. You can never blame someone else too many times.

And anyway, radio announcers were discussing it today on the radio, so today is a good enough start for me.

Oh, joy! Just think of it. You can blame all your misdeeds, mistakes, and problems on someone else.

Is your weight a little more than you'd like? Blame it on the Krispy Kreme donut shop.

Not as rich as you'd like to be? Blame it on your accountant.

The supper you cooked didn't turn out quite so tasty? Blame it on Ms. Betty Crocker!

As for me, I haven't done as much writing lately as I'd like. Should I blame it on the computer? Hmmm. Or maybe on Russ? He's always good for a blame or two.

No, I think today I'll blame it on the dog. It's Corky Porky Pie's fault. 

Yup. Who better to blame when your life is going to the dogs?

(What about you? Are you taking advantage of Blame Someone Else Day?)
