Mirth on Monday: Jeanne Robertson

Saturday night, John and I spent the evening laughing.  We attended a concert by Jeanne Robertson.  She was Miss Congeniality in the Miss America pageant years ago, and it is obvious why.  Before the show started, she came out in the lobby and introduced herself to everyone individually.  She asked us about Willow, and said she would know her show was going well if she heard Willow laughing during the performance.  As we left the theater, we were handed a recipe for pound cake.  Watch the following clip to hear all about the time she sent her husband to the store for the ingredients:

  1. Either my computer or YouTube is having issues this morning as I couldn't get the video to play. But thanks for trying to share with me! Hope it is a wonderful week.

    1. Hmm, it's working for me, so I'm not sure what the problem is. You can try going directly the YouTube and searching for Jeanne Robertson. She's really funny!

  2. I AM SO JEALOUS!!!!!!!! Actually, sinfully jealous. She is a fantastically funny storyteller. I listened to her all the time back before our XM radio broke. You had to have had a great time.

    1. She tours all over, so maybe you'll get a chance to see her sometime. We hadn't actually ever heard her before--no XM radio in our cars--but saw her show listed in the newspaper and decided to go. So glad we did! She is very funny.

  3. That clip was hilarious! I've been sitting here, laughing out loud, and my husband's across the room saying "What's so funny?!" Thanks for sharing!

    DID Willow laugh during her performance? I don't know how she couldn't have!

    1. Willow had her vest on, so I think she didn't realize that laughing was appropriate. She is such a serious worker! :-)

  4. Thanks so much for sharing this. Love her accent and her story and I think I will be watching all of her stuff on YouTube... Love her style of storytelling!
    I hope Willow enjoyed it too. I know I did!

  5. Oh my goodness, this was hilarious! But you have to know, I will be talking "Southern" for the rest of the day! I was born and raised in Louisiana, and worked so hard to lose that accent when we moved to OR -- teen years and all; but I can pick it up and run with it at the drop of a hat. I even read some of my Southern blog friends' blogs with a Southern accent. My hubby will sometimes start laughing and ask me which Southern blog I was reading. It can get pretty funny at times!

Conversations are so much nicer when more than one person does the talking. :-) Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts; I'd love to hear from you!

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: August Arrives!

A wild sunflower shows its cheery yellow petals My teacher friends are preparing to return to the classroom, whatever that looks like in their district. In any other year, I would be getting excited about BYU's Education Week. 2020 isn't like any other year, though, is it? Ed Week has been postponed to a date TBA and changed to an online format. While I am happy that I am getting projects done around the house, and I'm generally content to live the life of a hermit, I'm literally dreaming of going to Disneyland, which makes me think I must be getting a little case of cabin fever. (I'm not usually a big dreamer, or if I am, I don't usually remember my dreams. This one was particularly funny, I thought: I was in line to get into Disneyland. In front of me in line were the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Elder Cook was having trouble and his ticket wasn't scanning. I said to the cast member, "He's OK.

Ten Things of Thankful: Harvest Time Edition

  A harvest of beets, carrots, potatoes, and onions  Although I have come to love summer once again, I have always loved fall. As a child, I loved the excitement of back-to-school time. There was something so satisfying about checking off the required school supplies from the list, and the new clothes and shoes were waiting so patiently for the first day to arrive, so I could wear them. The air developed a crisp coolness, and soon it would be the holiday season.  I don't have new school supplies, nor do I have a new outfit in my closet, but I still love autumn. As an adult, September brings harvest time. I have been enjoying the bounty of the garden, and am taking mental note of what worked and what didn't, in preparation for next planting season. The temperatures are beginning the roller-coaster ride of changing seasons, and soon enough we will be celebrating holidays. One of those holidays, of course, is Thanksgiving, and what better way to prepare than to reflect back on thi
