I certainly hope not!!
Optimist! Thanks, Dale.
Hmm, reminds me of a former boss who used to say, “When you get to the end of your rope, tie a noose and hang yourself.”
Good old pessimist. Thanks, Liz.
And a disliker of inspirational platitudes.
😱nope. sending light☺️☀️
Let there be light! With illegal bulbs at that. Thanks, Hedy.
Oh I didn’t know 🤓 but how will “they” know 🤔
Since the authorities aren’t very bright these days, the chance of them knowing is minimal.
and now here in Canada we have warning labels on each individual cigarette and on our beef…lots of warnings these days…
I can appreciate some labeling for ingredients and nutritional info, but warning labels drive me crazy. You need to post photos of some of those warning labels. You could make some great art of them. Thanks, Hedy.
No. Sending hugs to everyone and treats to the kitties 🐈⬛
Not before making jokes about being turned on and well-hung.
I should have said “Never! Make jokes about being turned on and well-hung instead!” Hanging oneself is never encouraged. (I hope that was obvious)
But being well hung is desirable in this culture, right?
There’s well hung and there’s hung limp and lifeless from the end of a noose. Important distinction!
Then there’s hung limp and lifeless, but not at the end of a rope. Old Rumple Still Skin knew all too well. Egil wrote about growing old and hanging limp and lifeless in his Saga.
Now there’s a couple of bright observations. Thanks, JYP.
You know me. Full of bright ideas, bawdy jokes, and no filter.
That’s what makes you so much fun.
I’m fun on my own, but it’s a lot more fun with a partner willing to play along.
Now that’s a whole different box of light bulbs and roll of rope.
Clever wit, hung jury, sending light Tim 💖
Hahaha! We’re getting all the hung jokes in. Thanks, Cindy.
indeed we are! 😹😹
Even the cats are laughing.
Rope, incandescent bulbs … all that’s missing is a good rock-n-roll song played loud and proud, going down an isolated backroad.
You could play “You Light Up My Life” and “Tie Me Down”. Thanks, David.
Seeing that brought to mind the old Sylvania light bulb commercial that ran on TV when I was a kid. Now the music is stuck in my head. 🙂
Where did you take this photo, with the heavy ropes?
In my open shed of doom. Thanks, Lavinia.
Nah, hanging lights instead, like I did on Saturday. Fun.
You hang lights on Saturday? I hope is was enlightening? Thanks, Jeff.
We “hang” these bulbs because we all have to use LED ones now 🙂
True. At least LED is much better light than fluorescent. Thanks, Rudi.
Lol….. Given how buying the RIGHT humble light bulb here has become such chaos, maybe the choice now includes the rope….
Who would think light bulbs could such complicated things. Thanks, Shey.
My Mr has a nervous breakdown every time I say we need light bulbs.
I can feel his pain!
It’s light bulb moments of the wrong sort…..
Totally wrong. I bought those cases of light bulbs when congress was outlawing incandescent bulbs and trying to force those stupid curlicue fluorescent bulbs on everyone. I detest those curly light bulbs. Now that I can get LED lights it’s not so bad. I like the warm color of incandescent.
Well we had all that forced on us …all costing the earth and lighting bugger all too. And like that for a long time I got bulbs in the all the kind of places shall we say… that still stocked the old ones. But these days are coming to an end. And the Mr heavy breathes every time I say… We need a bulb. He is not alone in taking the one needing replaced to a shop either. Hell, prob a lot simpler when we just lived in caves!!!
We burn candles and torches at night while Laurie reads on her iPad and and I do Duolingo on my phone. Neanderthal and tech.
Hell .. all i know re the bulbs is if this progress you can stuff it. SO??? One cave to another?? Re the torches and things…?? In solidarity bros. Be out with the chainsaw later this week to cut more wood.
What legislators and bureaucrats see as progress is woe to the people. Have fun with more cutting up after your wild vacation.
Oh I will.
There is a book called “time longer than rope”
But what shall we say about the light bulb?
Hang those light bulbs instead! 🤣😂 If you get any rope left we can have a go at politicians and the rest!!! 🤣😉
No that’s a bright idea. Thanks, Marina.
😉 I’m guessing you’re having lots of rope left! 🤣😂
Have rope will dangle.
I’ve hung with some pretty dim lit people over the years, that’s for sure – luckily I’m not as susceptible to “hold my beer” challenges anymore ha!
We try to flush them folk out of our memories. No more “hold my rope” challenges either. Thanks, Brian.
We apparently will hang ourselves. Great post Tim. I keep my thinking of a favorite Christine Aguilera song Bound 🎶
The photo is very catching (and I love & appreciate rope, so I think that is one reason I like it!), and then your perfect lyrics to this shot 🙂
Thanks, Randal. Rope is beautiful and so very useful.
Looks like we just might, Tim. We just might.
It sure seems that way. Thanks, Resa.
