It’s time for a feel good and have fun column

This week's Hammertime takes on a fun role with a variety of funny sayings.

I have had the pleasure of writing a whole lot of columns and stories about the great people, events, challenges, and successes from in and around this great community for so many exciting years. No matter what the subject of the article may be I really enjoy putting them all together, and have always had a lot of super support and ideas along the way. There are also those hectic weeks, which we all have, that I love to relax and hammer out some feel good and funny stuff, which I hope you all enjoy, and will bring on some of those ‘loosen-up laughs’ that we all deserve.

Is this the best outlook on life?

I might wake up early and go running. I also might wake up and win the lottery, but the odds of doing either are about the same.

Marriage is getting to have a sleep-over with your best friend every single night of the week.

One of the happiest moments ever is when we find the courage to let go of what we can’t change, and when we find out who really are our true and best friends.

Some days we eat salads and go to the gym, and on other days we eat cupcakes and refuse to put on pants. Such is both sides of the delightful balance of our everyday lifestyles.

My boss said ‘dress for the job you want, not the job you have.’ Now here I am sitting in on a disciplinary hearing dressed as Batman.

Wouldn’t life be perfect if sweat pants were sexy, Mondays were fun, junk food didn’t make us fat, girls didn’t cause so much drama, guys weren’t so confusing, and goodbyes were only meant until tomorrow?

Why don’t I have any tattoos? For the same reason you don’t put a bumper sticker on a Ferrari. But then again, there are some days when I think my brain has too many tabs open. Baldness is becoming very common these days, but look at it this way. It’s bye bye to barber’s fees, it always looks bright, neat, and shiny, and your face looks much taller.

Some things are better left unsaid, which many of us generally realize right after we have said them.

Breaking news…..the earth revolves around the sun. This may upset a few people who think that it actually revolves around them. Is it not better to jump off the high horse, lighten up a little and share our best friendly rays with everyone else?

Will you love me when I’m wrinkled and old? Of course I do dear. I’ve got a terrific idea for saving money….I borrow a little every month and set it aside.

What the heck. Just go ahead and….eat the darn chocolate cake, walk in the rain and splash in the puddles; ride with the window down; dance and sing a lot, talk to strangers, smile at everyone, and try to hug someone every day. It’s fabulous to go barefoot, take naps, love a lot, try new things, spend time with kids, chase after your ‘bucket list’, and let’s laugh at ourselves and with each other at every opportunity.

Yes, like so many hundreds of thousands of proud Canadians out there we have come down with a case of BLUE JAY FEVER, and we will run with them into the baseball playoffs as far as they can go, with hopes that they may have a chance to celebrate another World Series Championship for CANADA’S TEAM? To those who work in acres and not hours, we hope that your bountiful crops will soon be safely stored in the bins, and that we will all be blessed with a few more weeks of glorious Indian Summer until way after Halloween. Dress a little warmer, enjoy the brisk fresh air, and have a great week, all of you.
