A lighter side of life

Please indulge the levity.

Below is a list of odds and ends, some mundane, others interesting, but all true regarding myself except for one. First time reader?   Take a guess, and to any who have traded  comments, you would know there is no flattery intended; as a matter of fact, some of these are out right embarrassing.

Only meant to throw in a different ‘color,’  and shift into low gear for maybe a day. It would be curious if you ventured a  guess  as to what was not true.  😉  Only one guess per customer please—  lol

(I’ll post the answer when this runs dry, may be  sooner than later.                                             If you LIKE it, please post a guess)

To God be the glory


(you could do something similar!)


swam across a river, was in a motorcycle accident

hit a home run in Little league

crashed and flipped over a  sports car,  had a shortwave radio broadcast

lived in a tent in FL,  sewed buttons on shirts

baked cookies and bread, hitchhiked to New Jersey

played pool with Minnesota Fats at the age of twelve

taught myself to juggle

 questioned a rabbi in a synagogue about Psalm 110

walked to school one mile each way, tanned many deer hides

painted a van by hand,  got straight A’s in spelling

was an altar boy and spoke Latin

taught myself to read Greek,  pitched a no-hitter and lost

caught a bird out of thin air,

 can call doves with my mouth and hands,

I have four sisters, I named one of them

took a lie detector test for a job

never had a balance with a credit card

delivered mice to hospitals

sold cars,  drove trucks,  packaged candy

made ductwork,  suffered a skull fracture

used bingo chips to get  nickel gum balls (sorry)

guessed the correct amount of legos in a jar to win a razor

invented a game,  ate plantains in the Bahamas

rented a hall and gave a lecture on Medjugorje

………ok, enough of this nonsense

So, what one thing seems over the top that I cannot make claim to??

Thank you for your guess!!

  1. What an awesome list! God is forever telling me to lighten up, in a dozen different ways. I think He likes it when we laugh, especially at ourselves.

    From what little I know of you, everyone of those could be true! I’m going with “ate plantains in the Bahamas” as being unlikely. 😉

    It’s kind of funny, I named one sister, baked bread and cookies, and tanned a few deer hides, but you passed me up everywhere else.

      You win something for being the first contestant….

      It was difficult posting this IB, at the risk of appearing vain, but your comment is reassuring that it is harmless.

      Laugh at ourselves, yes! Sense of humor is wonderful, and should be more so to they who have hope.

      Thank you very much for pointing out your own similarities, and tanned hides? Well done.

      IB 22- votes for eating plantains in the Bahamas as being unlikely.



  2. I’ll have to go with “taught yourself to learn Greek!” 😉 Greek is so difficult and it doesn’t have any connections with other languages. But it would be really cool if you actually did teach yourself it.

      Ana Hi!

      Oh but friend the things I left off that list! lol
      I really appreciate your vote, so….

      ANA says the thing most unlikely to be true

      is :”delivered mice to hospitals.’

      Stay tuned-and have a great day friend

    Questioned a rabbi in a synagogue about psalm 110 seems like the oddest one for me. Although the others too….well let’s see

      Joseyphina from Ghana posts a guess.

      She said ‘questioned a rabbi about Ps. 110 is the most unlikely.’

      Tkx a lot for posting Jo- A very good guess, we will see.


  5. So we both know Latin and Greek, and took a lie detector test. =) A bird out of thin air, eh? Cool.

    • Colorstorm says:

      Wow HW- you said a lot in a few words,
      well done

      Maybe you are exhibiting a way fair-er assumption as to the languages…we will see. 😉

      Going with the bird huh?
      vote tallied

      (your post suggests that a change in guess is welcome but not encouraged–lol)

    Reblogged this on Jewish and Christian News.

  9. OH MY GOODNESS! How can I even guess!?!?!
    Okay, I’m going with: taught myself to read Greek, pitched a no-hitter and lost
    I’ll be waiting for the answer! So many good ones to choose from 😉

      MamaMick casts her vote!

      Thank you very much for your consideration and guess!

      ‘Taught myself to read Greek, and pitched a no hit game and lost’ as the least likely to be true.

      The odds are really not bad, you are either right or wrong- lol


  10. Hmm…what a nice way to see ‘inside’ for a bit. I’ll pick the Minnesota Fats one. Not because it could not happen but because if it did, I would be green with envy. Oh…and I don’t look good in green. (smirk).

      Tkx Cindy for your attention.

      You must be a closet pool shark then? Well, stay tuned.

      Remnantrefuge thinks the thing most unlikely to be true is ”playing pool with Fats @ the age of 12′ 😉


  11. SLIMJIM says:

    This is a wild guess…”was an altar boy and spoke Latin”?
    Lots of neat stuff you have done by the way!

      Hey Jim-

      Tkx for the visit and playing along! Hopefully, this idea will inspire others to do something similar, re. the simple and not so simple things of life..

      Anyway, appreciate your pick.

      Slim Jim is going with ‘an altar boy and speaking Latin’ as the most unlikely of things being true 😉
