Friday Funnies!

A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around,
looking for valuables, and when he picked up a CD player to place in his
sack, a strange, disembodied voice echoed from the dark saying,
"Jesus is watching you."

He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight out, and froze.

When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head, promised himself
a vacation after the next big score, then clicked the light on and began
searching for more valuables.

Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as
a bell he heard, "Jesus is watching you."

Freaked out, he shone his light around frantically, looking for the source
of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came
to rest on a parrot.

"Did you say that?" He hissed at the parrot.

"Yep," the parrot confessed, then squawked, "I'm just trying to warn you."

The burglar relaxed. "Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?"

"Moses," replied the bird.

"Moses?" the burglar laughed. "What kind of people would name a bird Moses?"

"The kind of people that would name a rottweiler Jesus."

Hello Friends.

Thanks for continuing to stop by and check in on me.

I have been emotionally blank of late. I have been given some clarifying information about my depression.

I have 3 stages of depression. First, there is the Major Clinical Depression, which is being treated with drugs. This malady comes in stages. I am currently in a ditch with it. Next moth, I may not be so deep into it.

Second, is the constant low-grade depression. This is the "I know there's something wrong, but I don't know what it is" or the "I don't care, go away" stage. This needs to be treated with therapy. I need a mental attitude adjustment, how I recognize and deal with it. I have an appointment for next Friday. This has become a major stumbling block for me. It prevents me from answering the phone, leaving the house, taking my meds, eating, making cards, getting out of bed or doing chores. It's devastating.

Third, is the depression my body feels due to the illnesses I have and the drugs I must take to control them. Artificially created, not much can be done for this except for me to stay in good health.

My diabetes and kidney disease is well controlled, or was, as of January. I have been lax in my blood glucose testing of late.

I am so very grateful for all your thoughts for me. I have been a hibernating bear of late and your determination to keep me active in commenting is powerful.

I will check in later today to respond to your comments. I have the car today and have many chores to accomplish. I hope to be home for a rest late afternoon.

Enjoy the funnies! Hugs & Smiles! D :)
