* Bump Thud Bang Ding! *

I've decided I am now disciplined enough to keep writing and blog a little. I've really missed my blog friends and I'm happy to be back. I'll also try to read some blogs, and leave a comment when time allows. And if others don't have time to stop here, or leave comments, I certainly understand.
Blogs should be a joy, not an obligation!


From Pigtails to Chin Hairs: A Memoir & More is coming along really well. I am so thrilled and relieved that something finally clicked within this old brain of mine, and the writing began to flow. No, it's not easy every day, but it's fun and challenging and I'm a happy writer. I couldn't ask for anything more.


Now...the reason for my blog title. I've mentioned a few times what a klutz I am. Weird things happen to me...often. I began a chapter on my klutziness quite some time ago, and something happened last night that will definitely make it into the book. I can't give any other details yet, though.....except to say it really hurt...and.... Bump Thud Bang Ding!





And the reason for these two pictures??

Because I think they're hilarious!

That's me on the left, acting goofy like my usual, dignified self. I'm playing a video game with my then teenage son, Mark, at Chucky Cheese. This was at one of my grandsons' birthday parties quite a few years ago. Man, how I wish I was that young and thin now! 

I took the picture on the right, straight from our TV screen. This is a young guy doing a local pizza place commercial. I paused it, then snapped the photo. And why? Because he looks so goofy! He looks like he could be related to me, doesn't he?? But I guarantee he isn't! He was saying here, "Mom! More pizza!" 





Ron and I have always loved to make each other laugh. He has more of a dry wit, and I tend to act silly. I love “breaking into song”, usually when he least expects it, and doing crazy dances around the house. Just the other evening, after another one of our goofy dialogues, Ron turned to me and said, “Do you think Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie act like this?”  We both responded with the exact same words: “I doubt it!” -- Becky Povich (from Chicken Soup for the Soul; Love Stories 2007 My entry: Through the Years)

  1. I'm so glad you're able to write such an upbeat post after whatever thump hurt you. Hope you're okay.

    My husband and I hardly need to watch comedies. We make each other laugh constantly. Though some think I'm quiet and reserved, he knows I'm pretty nutty, silly, crazy most of the time. Angelina And Brad had better start this, because I think this is one of the main ingredients that make a relationship last.

    Nice that you'll be blogging more. Welcome back Becky.

  4. Good to see you back! I'm with you on the klutzy thing - my husband just shakes his head and helps me up. And actually, I think that Brad and Angelina are goobers at home, just like the rest of us. They're just really pretty goobers.

  6. Welcome back - you have been missed. And yes, I have more than my fair share of klutziness. I often have bruises on my upper arms from where door jambs attack me as I go by...and many other bruises whose causes escape me.

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
