Nobody Knows

You wonder why I post funny stuff on facehole everyday???

Over it. So over it.
You can get the virus from surfaces. No you can't. Yes you can.
Wear a mask. They don't work. But they do.
You can get the virus from animals. Wait. No.
The vaccine might be ready in October. Or years from now. Not sure but it will be Made in China.
The virus has mutated 30 times. I mean 50. I mean 30.
If you have had the virus you are immune. Um. Er. Ah.
We have enough tests. No we don't. Well we might.
You can't get the virus outside. Except on windy days.


I will be sky screaming with Troy/Zac today.

I wrote this almost 11 years ago when Tim was 3.......and ALL OF US LOVE THE UPS MAN IN 2020!!

June 19, 2009 ·
My youngest son Timmers loves our UPS man. He runs to the door and waves at him and tells him hi with a big smile, dimples included. Maybe it is the big brown truck or the friendly way this delivery man brings packages out of nowhere but my son calls him his "bend."(friend)The other day we received a package and a short person named Tims ran out the door, down the steps, through the front yard and down the street chasing his bend in the big brown truck. I ran after my boy, as he yelled "Hims my bend!! Hims my bend!!" Ah, he's got it bad.

I don't need any unsolicited advice. Like "just cut your bangs" or "just buy a highlighting kit" or " just drive to this address, she'll fix you up."

From Patrick

My wife Carla during a deep conversation about a subject she's passionate about, says to me:

"You need to feel what I feel, exactly how I feel it, and exactly when I feel it."

There you have it. 

(love her!!!!)

From Carla
I'm thinking it would help our marriage out tremendously if you did those 3 little things. Just become me, Patrick. easypeasy

Answer Me

Weekly shopping date with Carla.
My wife asked "Is this mask crooked? Does it match my outfit? Does it make my butt look big?"
I just kept packing groceries.

Happy 23rd!!!

Happy 23rd Birthday to my best Joshua!! I love you so much!!
I know you don't like it when I post little Josh pics and the standard birthday brownies pic with number candles and the standard mom and her Josh pic. But you also know that if you tell me you don't like something.......I will do it. It could be worse. I could post the birth video.

All news "experts" seem to eventually contradict each other. And themselves. Good grief.
Wear a mask. Don't wear a mask. There are no masks.
Make your own mask.

Psalm 121
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
He who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, He who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm—
He will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

When there is TP in Walmart we are allowed to purchase one package. Because HOARDERS!!

Tuesday, March 24, 2020


I have so many questions.
What day is it? Can we open presents now? This can't really be spring break can it? Why is there so much talking and shouting and motion? Did I shower yesterday? Can I get a dog? Why can't I get out of bed before 11am? Are we now OFFICIALLY quarantined?? Are we locked down? Locked in? Locked up? Shut in? Shut down? Shut out? If I go out once every 7 days for supplies why does that seem like too much? Is it time for Carla to try social media distancing?

If the Smock Fits

"Attention Hudson, WI grocery shoppers. There is no blue light special happening today or any day in the near future. Clearing out the frozen foods section and buying all of the milk is in no way helpful right now. Please remain calm as you make your way to the long lines at the checkout. Thank you and have a nice day!!"

Brutal Honesty

My youngest son Tim speaks before he thinks. Which always makes me laugh. He knows I had him at age 40. (40+14=54=me)
Before you think him RUDE, please know the following have all been said with love and care and concern.
"Mom, I really want you to meet my kids someday. But I don't think you are going to make it."
"Mom, how old will you be when I graduate? 58??? That's old."
"Mom, I am worried about you and Dad. You could get this virus thing because you are both elderly. And have weak immune systems."

Mom "You are my best Tim!!"
Tim "You are my best Mom!!"

Dear World,
If those of you that kick the backs of people's chairs could wear little signs that say I WILL KICK THE BACK OF YOUR CHAIR......that'd be great.
Help a girl out. Thank you.
