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: Dad's Influence Edition

Infant-me, sitting on the wood floor, looks up at my dad, who is sitting on a brown sofa and smiling down to me Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement.  I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me. My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis. When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a paren

Ten Things of Thankful: Summer Strawberries and Procrastinated Projects

A brilliantly-colored dark pink and purple fuchsia blossom You would think that by the time a person reaches my age, she would not be surprised by the passing of time, yet I find myself nearly constantly amazed that a certain amount of time has passed--whether that be a week, month, year, or couple of decades. Earlier this year, I planted a garden. Yesterday I harvested my first strawberry. Earlier this year, I also planted fuchsia starts, and now the flowers are blooming. How is that possible? (And why am I surprised?) Sometime around the turn of the century (and it still seems strange to use that phrase about the year 2000), we bought a circa 1935 dresser. It needed some TLC, but had a cool curvy front. This past week, I finally got around to applying some Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax, and now the dresser still looks old, but not dilapidated. I still need to apply some hide glue to some loose pieces, but I'm counting progress as a win. For as long as I can remember, I've be

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.
