And the Butt’s Have it…

One of the funniest occurrences that I seem to encounter frequently is that I’m always getting the tail end of things…

Fuzzy Butt
Misty Morning Bedraggled Butt
A “Follow Me” Tail by a Female Lion
“Females raise their tail to give a ‘follow me’ signal to their cubs and also use it to communicate with each other when hunting prey”
“Tourist’s are a Pain” Butts
A Beautiful Lonely One

But…wonderfully not at every photographic encounter…

With People it seems to Add to the Atmosphere…😂
Hmmmm🤔…Maybe they’re all just looking Forward to New Possibilities…
The End…

Sunday Morning at the Watering Hole…

“Nature itself is the best physician.” 

Hippocrates 

Double C’s…not that🤣…where is your mind at….Cancer and Covid…each on their own are incredibly stressful circumstances to walk with…together, they can become an overwhelming daily event…

To find a place of peace and calmness to breathe in…Mr. P and I headed into nature…we are lucky that Addo Elephant park is only about a 45 minute drive…a place of solace from the current “norm”…

I think I have gone over the edge a tad…for every photo that I came across…seemed to have a conversation with me…but I wanted to share and hope that you might find a respite from your own place of chaos and turmoil or just a laugh…btw…it did work…both of our resting heart rates did come down…❤

Did you hear what’s happening down at the watering hole today?

Oh…OK, Mabel…nothing’s happening here…let’s go check it out…

Hey, Wait for me…I can hear everything…if you let me go too…I’ll tell you everything

…There’s the boy’s again…fighting over that prissy girl…won’t they every learn?

There goes George…all in a huff…I guess he didn’t get the girl this time…

Yup…the party is starting…you better hurry, girls…

There’s Bertha…definitely hasn’t lost all the “pregnancy fat” yet…and that child of her’s…so spoilt and noisy…

And there’s Secretary Martha…always looking for her lost bugs…and that outdated feathered cap!!!!… really needs to go…

Quite eating, Ziggy…we’re going to miss all the fun…

Let’s keep going, Pumba…it looks a little crowded here…

…Psst,,,those nosy girls are on the way….want me to head them off at the pass…I’ll take them both on…you know I will!….

Which way….come on, guys…which way….this is not funny…you know I can’t see which way to go….

The Gang’s all here…

Sending love, laughter, and some magic for your day!!!! ~Renée

Day 181…The Funny of Six Months

Life is short…smile while you still have teeth

Six months of happiness…in between the laughter and the tears…and there have been plenty of both…just ask Mr. P…but daily life is starting to feel “normal”…whatever that is…and I am not feeling quite so lost…

To celebrate the miraculous joy of the present…I am dedicating today’s blog to all the things that I have found a little bizarre and comical to my way of thinking…but then who am I to judge…

  1. Carguards…the ever magical creatures that appear out of nowhere in any parking area for a coin…directing you into a parking space that you were headed to all along…and waving an unseen and mythical wand to keep all and every person from breaking into your car while you are in for a shop…but the smile you receive in appreciation for your donation to their cause…is well worth the few Rand donation…
  2. Air Conditioning…A/C is a health hazard and supposedly the worst thing that one can spend their money on…even when the temperature gets into the 90’s and humidity causes a dampness on your skin that makes you wonder when you will start to see mildew growing out from your armpits…
Soggy clothes on a Rainy Day

3. No Clothes Dryers…really miss my fluffy towels and not needing to iron clothes…and on rainy days…this is what you get…

4. Every word is shortened…and I mean every word…well, I am exaggerating a little…but not by much…but I think that I am catching on…Johannesburg is Jo’Burg or Jozi…

5. “Just Now” and “Just Now Now”…These are common phrases that is used here is South Africa and there is no truth in the statements…this does not mean immediately, but rather a bit later…or possibly not at all…makes complete sense to South Africans…although I still shake my head every time I hear the phrases…

6. Biltong…not “jerky” but as close as I can get here…Spiced…usually with coriander seed (which I really don’t like)… cured and dehydrated meat…usually made from beef, game (kudu, sprinkbok, and wildebeest) and ostrich and even fish…

7. and the Robots…they have “Robots” controlling traffic…maybe that’s why everyone drives so crazy here…not really…just the term used for traffic lights…

Image result for weird life quotes

…with wonderfully strange and magical people…it really is the bomb…and you might as well…because as the saying goes…not one of us are getting out alive…

“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.”
― Robert Fulghum, True Love

Dedicated to my Wonderfully Weird Mr. P who has made the adventure so incredibly wondrous…
