Funny Movie List – Laugh more, feel better.

Albert The Joy Dog

Albert loves a great comedy!

Compiling a funny movie list seems like the perfect project for this bleak, rainy, cold, bleh, kind of a day. Am I dating myself too much if I told you I was listening in to Wednesday Morning, 3AM by Simon & Garfunkel while I’m at it?!

Listing funny movies and singing along with S & G is definitely raising my mood and energy! Some of these movie titles were added by a young friend of mine … some were family favorites from my childhood like Get Smart! My father’s pick would have been The Woman in the Red Dress.  I remember seeing Young Doctor Frankenstein with my mother and brother R. when I was ten years old. Twenty years later I introduced it to my nieces and nephews. My grandmother loved all the Benji movies and had a dog that looked just like him. Wild Target is a favorite of my husband. Stuck on You featured two hilarious minutes with Fred Burns ….

Please review and add in any I’ve overlooked. Or, let me know which ones are your favorites too! The power of humor is incredibly healing and something our tired adrenal glands need more and more these days. Add one into your next order from Amazon and share it with a friend, human or furry, to maximize its energy-boosting-benefits!

It’s D-Day. DMV Bingo Day.

Yep. My driver’s license expired on my birthday — 11 days ago.

How? Why?

Easy. I filled out and mailed in the renewal form a month before b-day, now d-day. I didn’t check the boxes on the back of the form. It took almost two weeks to get the application back in the mail, rejected because of those missing checkmarks. By then I had thrown out the paper with the secret “pin code” that would have allowed me to register on-line.

Then, I just gave up.

So today is the day. Right now is that morning.

Oh, and did I mention that somehow my car registration expired in April? The gate guard at Quantico brought that to my husband’s attention this week. Michael suggested that I go ahead and renew both cars while I’m at it … this tip was offered with a sly grin.

So I get to play DMV Bingo, twice.

Disorganization is an ugly thing. If you are a hare-brained person like me – get help. One place is at

Well – gotta go. Do you feel like sharing something silly and completely avoidable that you brought down upon yourself recently? I’d feel better if you did.


P.S. I will be BACK! And, I’ll post a smoothie recipe and a “greens” recipe for our Monday Fruit and Veggie Day!

Fun, Fun, FUN!

I am just back from having fun, fun, fun with my best friend from high school. Spent the week getting up at noon and going to bed 2:00 a.m. ish. We ate delicious food, had manicures, shopped till we dropped, took on one home improvement project, went on beautiful spring walks with her dogs, caught up on giggles, news, views and belly laughs!

There is nothing like being with someone who has loved you for years and years. Coleen and I go back to Junior High! She was a reserved young miss then. I practically had to stick her pigtails in ink to get her to talk to me!

Why am I telling you all of this?

Friendship, laughter and FUN pumps up those tired adrenal glands and plumps out those feel-good hormones like nothin‘ else.

If you are on this page, consider this your call to action! Take time today to make plans to schedule in a hefty dose of friendship, laughter and FUN this weekend.

Then, tell me all about it!!!!


I have a couple jewels to share with you from my time chez Coleen. I am ordering all of them today!

Here’s a little something to perk up those adrenal glands!

It’s a romantic full moon, when Pedro said, “Hey, mamacita, let’s do Weeweechu.”

Oh no, not now, let’s look at the moon!” said Rosita.

Oh, c’mon baby, let’s you and I do Weeweechu. I love you and it’s the perfect time,” Pedro begged.

“But I wanna just hold your hand and watch the moon.” replied Rosita.

Please, corazoncito, just once, do Weeweechu with me.”

Rosita looked at Pedro and said, “OK, one time, we’ll do Weeweechu.”

Pedro grabbed his guitar and they both sang…………

“Weeweechu a Merry Christmas, Weeweechu a Merry Christmas, Weeweechu a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year……..
