Fishducky's New Blog, Nancy's Blog, and Other Good Things

Does your world seem a little drab and boring sometimes? Do you feel in need of one of those deep, old-fashioned, belly laughs? I have just the thing for you: A brand new blog, a Fishducky blog, started by Melynda of Crazy World. It's called and will feature the deep riches of humor contained in Fishducky's brain. Fishducky has lived a rich and varied life, she is brilliant, she is kind, she is hilarious and the stories from her life are priceless. I read the first post yesterday and laughed so hard that my stomach ached. The second post is there today and since I'm writing this, I haven't read it yet. Whenever you feel in need of a deep old laugh, go visit.

hi there 

Daily Harvest for 1/23/2012:
When you re-read a classic you do not see in the book more than you did before.  You see more in you than there was before.  ~Clifton Fadiman

happiness always

Many of you know Nancy at A Rural Journal. Nancy's blog usually features one gorgeous photo and some words or a quote. Her blog is so beautiful in its simplicity; if you haven't visited her, please do, I know you will love it there. Nancy mentioned some time back that she likes the quotes she gets from The Quote Garden. Always in the market for good quotes, I checked them out and I really like the site. I thought I would mention it here, since some of you may not know about it. 
Anyway, after being so upset about the presidential candidates, I decided that some humor would be in order. So I went there and clicked on Politics in their index and found a whole lot of funny quotes. I decided to pick this one for today, there may be more to come later:
The best thing about this group of candidates is that only one of them can win.  ~Will Rogers

Nancy also suggested I should have Samson post for the rest of the week. Needless to say, he was delighted (if you don't know, Samson is one of our dogs, see above, and the only one who  blogs). He has a long blog ready to go for tomorrow. And I'm sure there will be more once he finds out that fishducky, his nemesis in the blogger world (he's just jealous of all the attention she's getting), now has her own blog! Something he has aspired to for a very long time. 
About Google: Have you noticed that now when you have to enter a word verification word, Google is attempting to correct the spelling?!! In word verification?!! Hello! I find this very annoying! (Hence the many exclamation points!)

Other than that, it is raining like crazy here in the canyon. I'm thrilled, except for the fact that I forgot to bring in the laundry I hung on the line yesterday. Nothing much to do about that now. It will get rinsed good by mother nature, that's for sure.


  1. gotta love will rogers quotes...

    and rainwater is a lovely fabric softener! :)

  2. Samson--I would never try to steal the limelight from you--PLEASE DON'T BITE ME!!!

  3. Is word verification an oxymoron? Because in the case of blogger, the words we verify are not actual words.

  4. Now that's one thing I hadn't noticed, or paid attention to, is correcting my word verification. Huh, odd. I look forward to 'hearing' from Samson!


  5. Thank you for the mention, dear Inger. You are a sweetie.

    Looking forward to Samson's posts.

  6. The Quote Garden.....I am there! Thanks.
    Blogger/google is doing lots of things lately. We have switched to bloggers new reply system which enables you to reply directing to the commenter. I like it a lot. I know about that word verification correct spelling strange! It confuses and COVERS up the word you are desperately trying to remember! Oh my nerves!
    Go Samson go on your posts! Good boy!

  7. Good to know fishducky has a blog. I will check it out. Thanks.

  8. Hi Inger! I must go and visit Fishducky... looking forward to Samsons words of wisdom tomorrow :-)

  9. Vilken fin bild på din nära natur. Den är så annorlunda mot det vi har här ju. Åker du över till Sverige ibland?

  10. Thanks for your comments. I appreciate them all so much even though it seems I don't have time to answer. I need to find out how Jim and Ron did their new comments.

  11. Dear Inger,
    That quote really puts the whole political scene in context. Thank you for sharing.

    I look forward to Samson's blogs. Perhaps one day he'll be as famous as Fishducky and the two of them can go on the road entertaining all their admirers around the world!


  12. the correction thing in verification makes me crazy because it goes UP and covers up the word... i just wish everyone would turn it OFF, mine has been off for a year and no problems. the spam thing works great.


Thanks for leaving a comment.. ~~ Inger
