Mental Mish Mash

No funny pictures this Friday. Just not in a funny-ha-ha mood. However, last night I found a quirky article that I thought all my readers may enjoy: 10 Everday Activities That Were Once Absolutely Terrifying.

Aren’t they a hoot? Makes one appreciate modern times a little more. Child birth is a lot safer, that’s for certain. Being an amateur historian, especially concerning medieval history, I know that at least nine of the terrifying activities are true. I’m not sure about the Number 1 Taking A Stroll Around Town. I know one did not go for a casual stroll, especially a lady, without an escort and being well armed but I’m not sure about the streaking. There was a lot of drug addiction, like today. It’s kinda like Deja vu all over again, isn’t it?

My husband is en-route to South Florida as I pen these words to administer to his seriously ailing elderly father. More than likely, Father-In-Law will not survive. FIL has been bleeding internally from a mysterious location for many years. It’s suddenly become very severe and it’s not looking good. It’s making him weak and lethargic. All our World War II veterans are slowly passing away.

This was a friendly reminder of the election season on Final Jeopardy last night:  The public appears disposed to be amused even when they are conscious of being deceived.” P. T. Barnum

Ain’t it true that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

And it’s Bike Night at the Church, so, I’ll catchya on the flip flop.

    1. About #1 cough can you imagine not having a safe, clean place to do that!? Horrors! That’s why so many people died from infections, especially typhoid fever.
      Thank you. He’s gone only a few minutes and already I miss him.

  2. Prayers for your husband and family as needed for safe travels, and wisdom for the decisions that will need to be made. Those terrifying activities are indeed terrifying!! Communal – what do you even call it? Not a bathroom or restroom…it’s not a room! Not an outhouse – no door!…..oh my!!

    1. Thank you for the prayers.
      I think it’s the bathroom history that freaks most people the most. We live in such a sanitary world that sometimes it’s hard to realize what our ancestors, or those in 3rd World Countries who fail to retain God in their knowledge, must endure daily. Hope your day is blessed. ~:)


  3. Praying for your hubby and his father. The terrifying things were both weird and funny. We dont know how good we do have it now days, do we? Especially the stroll around town and the pooping seats! Have a good weekend dear one.
