Pussy Cats 3

Well, we’ve heard it before, many times, and dog owners will always protest that their dogs are the smartest and much smarter than cats.

If you click on the video’s arrow below, you will witness the proof positive.  CATS RULE!!

Now, dog owners, what do you have to say about that?  Comments from cat guardians are also welcomed!

Painted Faces

I loved this video.  And I laughed myself silly.  Hope you find it precious.

 

Oops!!

Making mistakes while doing a job can be embarrassing – even cause someone to lose a job.  But, we have to laugh, just the same.

Here’s a good start to the weekend:

How embarrassing for this young woman!

A spelling error!

Now, how would I get the key in there?

Some Grape Respite at the End of the Day for Those Who Have Had a Bad Day

Let’s lighten up the atmosphere (or blogosphere) this evening.  Only one more day of the week to get through until the (hooray!) weekend comes into view.

For those who enjoy a little “pick-me-up” or need a “come down” from the hectic day, the following (hopefully) will put a smile on your face while you’re holding your favorite grape product in your favorite glass.  Drink up!  Or, drink down.

Comic Relief

I send emails back and forth with many friends, and I received one with this message:

If my body was a car, I would be trading it in for a newer model.  I’ve got bumps, dents, scratches & my headlights are out of focus. My gear box is seizing up & it takes me hours to reach maximum speed. Overheat for no reason and every time I sneeze, cough or laugh either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires!

I forwarded the message to several friends, and the following response was the best of the lot:

“My toaster just set off the fire alarm.  Entered my code three times trying to turn it off.  Only after placing the toaster outside did the system accept the code and turn off the alarm.  The alarm was surprisingly loud with the front door & garage open as an un-neighborly neighbor passing by showed no concern of me or the property’s well being.

So I appreciate the comic relief.  Perfect timing and utterly fantastic.  I will pass it on.”

How Do You Stop a Pesky Bird From Pecking on Your Window?

This question plagued my husband and me several years ago.

We had moved into our new home at the beginning of Spring.  Things were going along very well.  We met our new neighbors, were getting acquainted with our neighborhood and the local stores, etc.  We got settled in, and were finally able to get some well-deserved sleep in our new bed, in our new bedroom.

That fateful morning was a beautiful morning in South Florida.  The birds were chirping in their newly-found tree; dawn was lifting its head above the horizon and just starting to tell us it was time to start another day in Paradise.  Dawn didn’t have to lift its head too high to let us know another day was beginning.  We were told to wake up by a knocking noise.

“What is that noise?”  “Where is it coming from?”  “Ugh!”  “Groan!”  We pulled the covers over our heads to try to make it go away.  It was persistent.  It was almost like the hammering of a woodpecker pounding on a tree trunk.

Finally, we had to give up.  We got the message.  The day was starting without our permission!

We traced the noise to our south-facing window.  What a beautiful yellow bird!  He was sitting on the top ledge of the bottom section of the window.  As soon as we got close to the window, he flew away.

 

Beautiful (and hateful) yellow finch looking into our window.

Beautiful (and hateful) yellow finch looking into our window.

Well, that was a rude awakening, and we sure hoped it wouldn’t happen again!

It did.  Every morning.  For weeks.

We endured our early alarm-clock pecking-hammering and it finally stopped just as we were at our wits end to finding a way to make it stop.  Ah!  Peace.

Next year, our yellow-feathered “friend” made his noisy unwelcome appearance again.  In our frustration of being awakened so early, we resorted to throwing pillows at the window in an unsuccessful attempt to scare him away.

We thought we would outsmart this little bird – after all, we were humans.  Our brains are bigger than his!  I devised a picture of an owl.  Little birds are afraid of predators.  I taped it on the outside of the window.  “Well, that should solve that problem,” I thought to myself with smug satisfaction.  We went to bed that night with “smileys” dancing around our heads.

Next morning, we were awakened again by that pesky bird.  Oh no!  Will this nightmare (morningmare?) end?  We had figured out what actually was causing this poor bird to peck at our window.

Soon after moving into our new home, we had UV-protection film installed on the inside of the windows that faced south and west, in order to cut down on the sun’s rays from damaging our furniture and carpeting.  If we went outside to look at those windows, we were looking at ourselves.  This thick protective film acted like a mirror.  The top and bottom sections of the window had that film.

We made the hard decision:  we had to remove the protective film from the top section of the window.  It was a drastic decision, for sure.  But, our loss of our morning sleep called for drastic measures.

We got a bottle of “Goo Gone” (yes, there really is a product with that name).  We worked with 2 window scrapers, used up more than a giant roll of paper towels, and used more than half a large bottle of that glue solvent.  It took more than 2 hours, but we got it all off; film and glue, and the window has never seen as clean a day as it was on that day!

A few weeks later, we met one of our neighbors outside, 2 houses down from ours, and we were chatting away, as neighbors do.  Then, she told us about a peculiar thing that was happening outside her bedroom window.

Evidently, she had the same protective film installed on the inside of her windows, too!  We kept our mouths shut, but our eyes opened wide in amazement!

Some time after that, they moved.  I’m still wondering if it was because of the pesky little yellow finch.

Good Vibes in the End

The last few days have not been the best.  Neighbors sick, neighbors dying!  I’m not kidding.  I don’t have many days when I find it difficult to smile; these last few have been that.  Who else can I talk to, but my friendly neighbors on WordPress?  Yes, this is Sunshinebright speaking.

A different type of blog, veering off a little bit from my usual.  I’m thoughtful – these types of flashes of news does that, especially at this time in my life.

So, I decided to turn to my computer and see what’s up – chose not to read or watch TV.  Finished one book; ready to start another – not in the mood to watch weddings on TLC or scientific studies of monster snakes and fish on NatGeoWild.

Found The Chicago Files’ “This Is Hockey Night In…..America.”  Cher’s description of the difference in the announcers’ methods of giving “play by play” commentating is funny – truly.  So enjoyable – and, I’m not even a hockey fan!!  Here’s the link:  http://tinyurl.com/mfjk74l

Couldn’t help laughing, Cher.  Thanks so much for your great sense of humor!!  Sunshinebright is back!
