Seemingly, a Random and Happy Tuesday Post


It's time once again for a random and happy Tuesday, linking up with Stacy's Random Thoughts at Stacy Uncorked and Sandee at Comedy Plus 

Upon my arrival at Carl's yesterday, he jumped out of bed, grabbed a couple of items off of his counter and said, "Should I try to tidy up?"

It's a bit late, i told him, just go nap a while, and don't worry about sniffing the clothes to see if they are dirty, i'm going to wash it all.  He went.

Here's the thing, you can't stay mad at a 41-year-old special needs man child who loves stickers and bubbles.

Just be careful when you grab anything he's been handling, and i mean anything.

Front view.

Back view.

A handful of jelly is likely.

This week's "wonder why he did that" involves a pillowcase.  He's fussy about pillowcases, as he cannot stand rough material around his face, so he often takes his regular clothing that has the feel he likes and uses that clothing instead of pillowcases, especially shirts.

So why was one of his favorite pillows ensconced in two shirts while his favorite pillowcase was in a toothpaste covered bag on top of the dresser?

Bag smeared with toothpaste.

Favorite pillowcase.

Don't bother to ask him, he'll probably just mumble something you don't understand that roughly translates to, "It seemed like a good idea at the time."

 Speaking of that:

Have a blessed and beautiful Tuesday, everyone!

  1. It seemed like a good idea at the time explains far too many things. Smiling and wincing (in about equal measure) at the images you gave us.

  3. Those images ... where on earth do you find them, and why are people documenting their idiocy!

  4. Those good ideas ... honestly!

    God bless.

  5. I love it when you post about whirlwind Carl. He's most entertaining.

    It seemed like a good idea at the time is never a good idea. You made me cringe with some and laugh out loud with others.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Big hug, my friend. ♥

  8. Those all look like such awful accidents!!

  9. So many things look like a good idea at the time. LOL

  10. Delightful from beginning to end. The last photo had me chuckling!

  11. Great funnies- I wonder how they got that guy out of his uncomfy position! And Carl stories are always fun to read- you are blessed with patience.

  12. My wife & I are enjoying your blog about Carl. Our life is enjoying with our daughter.

    PS My blog is back to normal. Fantastic and I did a short blog this afternoon. This morning I made chili.

  13. I can actually relate to Carl's wanting a soft pillowcase. I have 2 that I keep rotating for my top pillow and can't find any others that soft. Nice bunch of funnies. :)

  14. Yep, Carl is really a cool one at heart. Love that pizza iron!

  15. LOL, none of that seems like a good idea, at ANY time. But I raised 2 boys, so I know those kinds of things happen all the time.

  16. That last one looks very uncomfortable, I'd be sweaty and panicky being stuck like that.


Thanks for meandering by and letting me know you were here!
