* I GOT NOTHIN', FOLKS....Again *

I've been racking my brain for days, trying to think of something to write about for a blog post. I haven't been in my usual upbeat mood and that puts a real damper on most topics. So, I made the decision to repost something humorous from a couple of years ago.

~~~~~

While driving to the grocery store this afternoon, with my list of fruits and veggies to buy, the following words popped into my head. I've mentioned before that I am not a poet, and don't y'all know it, as you can see below: 

(Hint: Sing out loud or in your head to the tune of ♫♪ Back in the Saddle Again. ♫♪)

I'm back into salads again.
Burgers & fries won't make me thin.
I saw some gorgeous clothes at 
the mall last week.
I must fight this war on fat and win.

(courtesy google)
Chorus:
I'm back into salads again.
Lettuce & broccoli are my friends
Also low cal dressing will help
Try to get rid of my chin(s)
I'm back into salads again.

(Forgive me Gene Autry!)



"The two biggest sellers in bookstores are the cookbooks and the diet books. The cookbooks tell you how to prepare the food and the diet books tell you how not to eat any of it." -- Andy Rooney

    Can we do anything to put the bounce back in Becky?

    1. Delores ~~ I laughed out loud when I read your comment! Guess you are one who remembered it from the first time??!! :D

  5. I love it! What would we do without a little humor. Now to the serious -I, too, have always read that cookbooks are a big seller. At lease I hope so. I have been working on one for a while now and someday hope to publish it. My problem is that I have too many pots on the stove and need to get one finished and sent to the table for people to (hopefully) enjoy. :o)

    1. Hi Janet! Glad you liked it! Wow -- you're writing a cookbook! I think that would really be a LOT of work? At least for me, it would! Good luck with it and be sure and let me know when it's for sale!

  6. My life has become a perpetual diet guilt trip, especially in this yucky hot weather which makes ice cream all the more tempting.

    Hope you feel back to your old self soon. Maybe I'll see you at SW this morning??

  7. Dont be hard on yourself Becky. Better days ahead.

    I have had three weeks with sciatic hip and having to use a cane.

    Real bummer. I just have to go on.

    Life is too short. So i love to do art. So this is where I have sat most days.


    Loves Ya!

  12. Funny post for someone who has nothing to say! Loved the Back in the Salads. Tickled my funny bone, and not bad poetry (lyrics). Thanks for this Labor Day chuckle.

  13. Hi Becky. I've been away from reading blogs for a while, and I've clearly been missing some great laughs here. You may not feel like you have something to say, but whatever you write makes me happy to read.
