Lockdown Day 25 – 20 April 2020 – Three cats and a Goldfish

Sharing is caring!

SCROLL DOWN to ENGLISH

Dag 24 moet oorstaan tot ek my eie kop uitsorteer!

Gister was Sondag. ‘n Rustige dag. Nie elke dag in lockdown is rustig nie. Met my boek klaar gelees besluit ek op ‘n fliek uit die vorige eeu. Maar dit was ideaal. Dit was goed om vir nonsense te lag en vir ‘n ruk te “onstnap.” Wie onthou nog Police Academy?

Humor is ‘n wonder middel (soos ander goed wat ek nie hier sal noem nie!)

Dit het my vanmôre laat dink aan musiek met humor.

Ek het terstond eers weer The Cat Duet geluister.

Daar is ‘n komiese opname van ‘n operasanger wat lank gelede onder die prop op die verhoog gegaan het, ek kon dit nie weer op YouTube kry nie. As jy dit het, plaas die link hier onder, asb.

My aanhalings gaan nie oor humor nie, maar is aweregse humor – soos ek daarvan hou!

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
― Albert Einstein

“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”
― Robert A. Heinlein

“The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.”
― Terry Pratchett, Diggers

Weereens het ek dit by www.goodreads.com gekry.

Te midde van Lockdown, onsekerheid, vrees, hartseer, rou, verlange, watter emosie ons ook al ervaar, is daar altyd iets om voor dankbaar te wees. En kan ons iets soek om voor te lag. Ek glo humor, soos trane, is van die beste medisyne wat daar is.

Ek glo mos nie in toeval nie? Toe ek my epos oopmaak lê daar ‘n epos met humor!

Little Tim’s Goldfish.
Little Tim was in the garden filling in a hole when his neighbour peered over the fence.
Interested in what the cheeky-faced youngster was up to, he politely asked, “What’cha doing, Tim?”

“My goldfish died,” replied the boy tearfully, without looking up. “I’ve just buried him.”
The neighbour was concerned. “That’s an awfully big hole for a goldfish, isn’t it?”

Tim patted down the last heap of earth, then replied, “That’s because he’s inside your dumb cat.”

Day 24 awaits me sorting out my thoughts.

For a laugh, watch the video above.

Yesterday was Sunday.  A leisurely day of doing very little. Not every day in lockdown is leisurely! After reading my book, I wanted to do something else. Not another documentary or true story. Something light-hearted. Nonsense and funny. The choice was a movie from a previous century – Police Academy as the main character could not escape his situation, he helped me escape mine!

I believe humour (and a thing or two I will not mention here), like tears, are good for the soul. It takes our minds away and it just cast a different light on things.

So, humour it is with the The Cat Duet

There was an opera singer who tried singing after indulging the good wine, many years ago. I unsuccessfully tried finding it on Youtube. If you find it, please post in the comments!

My quotes are the type of humour I like.

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”

“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”
― Robert A. Heinlein

“The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.”
― Terry Pratchett, Diggers

Even in these times, there is always something to be grateful for, and laughter is the best medicine!

When I opened my emails, there was an email with a few jokes – I do not believe in co-incidence!!
