This post is part of our regularly scheduled blog carnival at Bridget Chumbley’s place. For more great posts on LAUGHTER, go visit her site.
When I first heard that today’s blog carnival was on the topic of Laughter, I almost skipped out. You guys have read my blog. I’m pretty serious when I write. And I just didn’t know if I could rise to the challenge to write a post on laughter. And then, I decided that I needed to be reminded of how goofy I can be. So, instead of trying to tell you about laughter, please allow me to show you.
Notice how in all of these pictures, I’m with people I love? That’s what keeps me laughing! That’s what keeps me sane!
NOTE: Just before I posted this, my Dad called to tell me that my Great-Uncle Jonesie had passed away. Uncle Jonesie was in his late 80’s and it wasn’t completely unexpected that he had passed. We haven’t particularly been close over recent years, but I think I’d like to remember him with y’all today by sharing one of his favorite stories that he told over and over again at family events over the years.
When I was about 4 years old, Aunt Kathryn and Uncle Jonesie kept me one night. I vaguely remember it. And the way he told the story, I climbed up in his lap and said, “Uncle Jonesie, are you ugly?”
And when he told the story, I would blush furiously and he would laugh and laugh and laugh…
