One-Liner Wednesday – There is always a tomorrow

This post is in response to Linda’s  #1OneLinerWednesday.

When one is extremely depressed, it is good to remember that it’s not the end of the world, there is always a tomorrow and the sun will come up in the morning.

My original post was ” Instant gratification always leaves a unsavory after taste”, but then something happened today morning to change my post.

We are in the middle of a kitchen remodelling project that is now seriously past the original schedule and, surprise, surprise, seriously over budget.  Nothing new there, you will say. Please hear me out and you will understand ( and may sympathize with our plight).  Originally schedule of completion was end of February, 2019.  Cabinets that were coming in from out of state, came in much before schedule.  That itself may have rang the warning bells. Before schedule?  Lo and behold, when after couple of weeks, installers were ready to install the cabinets, they found one cabinet to be of smaller size and two end panels unfinished.  Everything went downhill from there.  New orders went out from the cabinet designer with expected delivery of April 8 to April 12.  So no work for three to four weeks.  In between the guy who was fabricating the granite counter tops became sick and hospitalized and the job that was supposed to start mid March was not started yet ( hopefully by this Friday, emphasis on “hopefully”).

One bright spot was yesterday afternoon when the cabinet and the panels arrived.  Ah, at last we were seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.  But today morning a landslide closed the tunnel.  The new cabinet this time was larger and only one panel arrived.  So back to square one.  Another month (?) of uncertainty and back to cooking in the garage with the stove and the microwave separated by a distance of twenty plus feet and zig zagging through wrapped up furnitures, balancing plates of food in your hand.

Oh, well! Still alive and kicking. Nightmare will end tomorrow.

 

One-Liner Wednesday – Conspiracy

This post is in response to Linda’s  #1OneLinerWednesday.

I always wonder if a dogs are able to give unconditional love because they have the same alphabets as God, but than what about dogs in other languages?

Must be another conspiracy of those good old Brits to call the canines dogs.20170902_145243

Skooby will really like to sleep on that conspiracy thought.

Did Linda really say it has to be a one liner?

 

One-Liner Wednesday – New Year’s Resolution

This post is in response to Linda’s  #1OneLinerWednesday.

I really want to get back to my New Year’s resolution as soon as I can find something to post for One Liner Wednesday and get off my rear end.

Now what was my New Year’s resolution?

Oh well, it already became a Two Liner Wednesday.

One-Liner Wednesday – Search Button

This post is in response to Linda’s  #1OneLinerWednesday.

Where is the search button when I need it the most.

Just realized I forgot what I was searching for last couple of hours absorbed in the world of internet.

Why there is no app to avoid stupidity?

Oh well, empty stomach does not result in good research.

It’s time to go fill up the gas tank.

One-Liner Wednesday – Politics of Division

This post is in response to Linda’s  #1OneLinerWednesday.

Mid term election was over and the results left me with several one liners for Linda’s One Liner Wednesday.  Here it goes.

The United States stands divided.

United we stand, divided we are ruled by the one percent.

All for an independent judiciary as long as it can be stuffed by ideologues.

We are all pro life, for some it is the life of the unborn and for some it is life for the living.

We are all pro choice as long as we have the rights to control others’ choice.

One-Liner Wednesday – Outage Outrage

This post is in response to Linda’s  #1OneLinerWednesday.

The idea for the first one liner was supplied by Linda herself in reply to my comment.  So here it is first, though that’s not what I had in mind.  I will follow up with the one I had in mind.

Went to bed early to avoid (power) outage outrage.

Hiking up the hills, lost in the vastness of nature, it dawned on me that to enjoy nature’s bounty we need caring human hands.

Divide Artificial – “One-Liner Wednesday”

This post is in response to Linda’s  #1OneLinerWednesday.

As I was walking my dog Skooby today morning, a few lines of a poem was churning in my head.  Normally I will sit down at my PC or jot down in my mobile whenever such things happen but I did not have recourse to any one of those today.  Can’t rely on old memory too much now a days. By the time I sat on my PC, what remained is just one line of the poem. So before I forget, here is to One Liner Wednesday

Race is the cement,
color of skin sand,
language aggregates,
concrete to nationality steel,
building the dividing wall of religion
keeping us apart
while the river of love
from time immemorial
flows with the color of blood,
RED.
