SPARK On Monday


Hello everyone!    Well you know what this Monday thing called SPARKS is all about right?    What?   You’re not sure?   Well here’s the story.   “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when her blog was hacked some time ago.  It was meant to be a way to start out each week with with a meaningful thought – something that spoke to each of us and hopefully everyone else who read it.   Although Annie isn’t currently blogging, a lot of us who enjoyed her SPARKS decided to keep posting SPARKS of our own.   Why?   Because sometimes we need a little “spark” in our lives and these posts were meant to at least be a PART of that effort.   Please feel free to post your own SPARK on your blog and let everyone know you have…….we get energy from each other that way!

So bear with me now…………..this week of course is Halloween week.     I thought instead of a thought-provoking quote as a SPARK, I’d lighten the load a little and give us a little smile………besides, smiles last as long as almost any other SPARK I can think of.     We need more smiles in this world.    Definitely.

If Maxine can’t make you smile a little then you might be needing more than a funny drawing – you might need a martini (just kidding).

Happy Halloween……SMILE!

Hugs, Pam

  1. Oh, Pam, I like that last suggestion…and we just happen to have a whole jar of new pimento-stuffe olives! Woo hoo. Smiling that you and your famioy are on the earth, giving us reasons every day to lift the corners of our mouths!


    • When in doubt – have a martini with a delicious olive (or two or three) in it! Did I tell you about the martini the bartender made for me in Maine at the Inn? Salted Caramel Martini. OH WOW. Thanks for enjoying today’s SPARK and for the compliment about “humble us” causing smiles. We like that – it makes US happy that others are HAPPY.

      Hugs, Pam

  2. That made me smile! And I’ve just spent a few minutes thinking about what I could put in the sack. No, I can’t repeat it in polite company!


  3. Maxine always makes me smile. Most politicians need a big sack of you know what!
    I had my MRI brain scan this morning and even the Diazepam doesn’t make it less scary. At least it is done for now.


  4. Love us some humor from Maxine. She never pulls any punches. Mom is about ready to barf from all the political commercials. She cannot wait until the election is over. It seems like that is all that is on TV anymore. You definitely made Mom and Dad laugh. Thanks!
