Thursday Thoughts #1


This is my first post for Thursday Thoughts but it is about something that I am deeply concerned about that has been in my thoughts for over a week now so I thought it would help to post about it.

One evening I decided to relax & watch tv awhile so I turned the Animal Planet on to watch a show about dolphins...such intelligent creatures that are usually extremely gentle. However, they can become really stressed as my story will show...

On a sunny day, a family decided to take their boat out & enjoy a special time together. While they were out, a dolphin swam up to their boat so they fed it fish and the woman then decided she would like to swim with the dolphin so she got into the water and was enjoying petting & playing with the dolphin.

There were two more boats in the same area & the dolphin would swim from boat to boat for food but each time he went to the 3rd boat the guys on the boat would hit it on the head repeatedly & laugh really hard! Eventually the dolphin became extremely stressed and so he attacked the woman in the ocean. She survived the attack but suffered both physically & emotionally from the ordeal.

Now for my thoughts...needless to say, I was very, very outraged by the behaviour of the 2 grown men and found no humor in their actions at all!! Furthermore, I cannot believe that they were allowed to get away with such a horrendous, cruel action without being fined or put in jail. I also think that, at the very least, they should be held accountable for any medical treatment/surgery that the woman had to go through. Perhaps that would make them think twice before abusing another creature.

It was totally uncalled for & senseless...Why do people feel the need to be cruel to helpless creatures anyway!!? Can you tell that I am still really angered about this?

Would You Believe...?

It is actually snowing here today! Wow, that is really a rare event for the south...especially this early in the season!!

Oh, and in case you were wondering where I've been, I have been battling a cold & have been trying to get lots of rest & drinking glass after glass of OJ (not at the same time though...lol)

I have missed visiting my blogs and will try to drop by tomorrow. *s*

Commercials

For lack of anything else to post, I decided to give y'all my opinion on a few commercials this morning. However, I will not mention any particular company name.  *s*

There is a commercial advertising exercise videos that I do not care for. I think exercise is a very good thing but, in my opinion, the person selling the videos does not look half as good as he thinks he does.

I really enjoy the commercial where the cows ring the doorbell and when the man answers the door, there is no one there...it is just too funny to me!

I find the commercial where the bird flies into the vehicle distasteful because it looks really painful for the bird...however, I kinda like the commercial by the same company that involves a lizard becomes it doesn't harm the animal.

Then there is the hair restoration commercial in which one of the men talks about his restored hair: When he says you can swim with it, I picture his hair with a swimsuit on doing a backstroke in the pool...drives me nuts!!

County News

This did not happen in my community but one not far away. A local resident discovered that one of his rottweilers had brought the body of a newborn into his yard. Naturally, he called the authorities and they did an extensive search of the woods & canvassed the neighborhood in hopes of finding the baby's momma but were unsuccessful.

I just think this is so sad but I'm not going to judge anyone here as I do not know the circumstances of the parent...perhaps she was a scared teen that just did not know what to do.

How About Some Puns This Morning?

Two antennas met on a roof, fell in love and got married.
The ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was excellent.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

A jumper cable walks into a bar.
The bartender says, "I'll serve you but don't start anything."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Two peanuts walk into a bar, and one was a salted.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I went to a seafood disco last week...and pulled a mussel.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


What do you call a fish with no eyes? A fsh.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Two fish swim into a concrete wall.
The one turns to the other and says "Dam!"

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

A man walks into a bar with a slab of asphalt under his
arm and says: "A beer please, and one for the road."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named "Ahmal." The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him "Juan." Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Ahmal. Her husband responds, "They're twins! If you've seen Juan, you've seen Ahmal."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

An invisible man marries an invisible woman.
The kids were nothing to look at either.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


And finally, there was the person who posted these puns for her friends, with the hope that all ten of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did??

Self Laughter

Not long ago, I became acquainted with arthritis...knots appeared on the fingers on my right hand which are sometimes painful (my thumb is exempt). The infamous Mr. K told me that he sure hoped it wasn't the crippling kind. I know that was sweet of him to say but it was really hard for me not to laugh out loud when he said that. You may be asking why did I laugh so please read on...

You see, I was born with a birth defect that affected my right side so I have been "crippled" all my life so even if it is the crippling kind, it isn't going to be that much different for me. That is why I found his statement so funny!   LOL

Plus, I think being able to laugh at one's self is a good thing. *s*

Accent

This morning I was checking a site that I visit frequently & someone asked about accents there...it brought back a memory and gave me something to post.  *s*

I have lived in the deep South for quite some time...several years ago, I was talking to my beloved momma on the phone and she asked me why I was talking so funny. So, I guess it could be said that I definitely do have a southern accent but it just seems natural to me. I have a sister that lives in Arizona and her accent seems more pronounced than mine...at least to me.   lol
