RANDOM THOUGHTS: Today am wondering about the word, “malady” and how it sounds similar to the word, “melody" and that with just a change of a couple of vowels, you actually have the word melody. So that naturally leads me to wonder that if you have trouble singing a melody...do you have a melody malady or M.M. for short? Deep, deep thoughts today for sure.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: I must have the most sensitive "gollywhopper" in the world. My wife and I stopped by McD's on the way home from the movies and bought a couple of Frappe's. While trying to drink mine, it seemed about every three to four sips, my gollywhopper has a panic attack and sent pains that made me scream like a little girl for about 20+ seconds. So when I got home, I made a hot cup of coffee to go with my Frappe in hopes of quickly counteracting the next attack. I am fairly sure that I suffer from O.S.G.S.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: When I think of "Fleece," it is a warm and fuzzy for me as I like the feel of it and have several jackets made of it. I also appreciate that it is never cold when I first put it on. So when I hear the saying, "The Fleecing of America," it makes me think of everyone being given a nice fleece jacket or some type of fleece clothing...and in that nice warm, soft thought...I like the idea...David Wood

RANDOM THOUGHTS: I recently started replacing some of my regular fat free milk with "Almond Milk." While looking over the box and thinking about it, I realized that I have never, ever, in my entire life, seen an "udder" on an almond. So if in fact, they have no udder, how in the world do they get milk from it??? I have seen some coconut milk but know how they get the milk from them. But an almond? What gives?

RANDOM THOUGHTS: So the theme for Lucky Charms cereal just went through my mind. As it went by, it said, "They are magically delicious." That got me wondering about them being "magically delicious." Why is that, would they not be good if magic were not involved? Without the magic making them delicious would they maybe taste like...dirt or perhaps tofu? Something valuable to think about for sure.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: Last night I used the word, “hysterical” in a sentence or maybe it was just in my mind…who knows for sure these days. Then it hit me, why is it only “his-terical” for a man or a woman being very upset and not “her-sterical” for a woman and his-terical for a man?
This line of thinking made me wonder further. Was this man’s sneaky way of taking credit for all of these things or woman’s way of blaming man for it without him knowing it? And so I continued to see what other valuable information was there to be gleaned from this line of thinking.

JOURNAL: It was just a typical morning, similar in most ways and appearances to most mornings when I have to go to work. I have my normal routine and I was making it happen just like I normally do. Sometimes my routine includes pom-poms, sometimes a great pair of tights and sometimes some flags, a baton or a spinning rifle. Today I was just doing it with no props since it was Thursday and

SHORT THOUGHTS: Where do you find rest? Who is your refuge? Who is your protector? Who can you trust? Where does your help come from? Who made all the wonderful things around you? Do not all the answers point to the same ONE? Thank you God!!!
Psalm 91:1-2 (NIV1984)
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

JOURNAL THOUGHTS: I was talking to Denice this morning and the phrase, "Idle Threat" came up. (Yes, she was threatening my life once again...ha) Anyway, that got me thinking about that phrase while I was watching my back and wondering where it came from among other things.
That phrase seems to refer to something you are saying but have no intention of doing. Like when you hear someone say, "I'm going to rip your arm off and beat you with the bloody stump" or "I'm going to beat you within an inch of your life" and other fun stuff like that.
