No one can deny the seriousness of the havoc Covid19 is causing to all of us around the world.
Sometimes humor is the best medicine.

Humorous stories, signs, cartoons, memes, or other lighthearted ways to help us through a very serious worldwide problem.
From the Mayo clinic:
Stress relief from laughter? It's no joke When it comes to relieving stress, more giggles and guffaws are just what the doctor ordered. Here's why. By Mayo Clinic Staff
Whether you're guffawing at a sitcom on TV or quietly giggling at a newspaper cartoon, laughing does you good. Laughter is a great form of stress relief, and that's no joke.
Stress relief from laughter
A good sense of humor can't cure all ailments, but data is mounting about the positive things laughter can do.
A good laugh has great short-term effects. When you start to laugh, it doesn't just lighten your load mentally, it actually induces physical changes in your body. Laughter can:
Stimulate many organs. Laughter enhances your intake of oxygen-rich air, stimulates your heart, lungs and muscles, and increases the endorphins that are released by your brain.
Activate and relieve your stress response. A rollicking laugh fires up and then cools down your stress response, and it can increase and then decrease your heart rate and blood pressure. The result? A good, relaxed feeling.
Soothe tension. Laughter can also stimulate circulation and aid muscle relaxation, both of which can help reduce some of the physical symptoms of stress.
Our local food bank has been dropping off food to vulnerable citizens...elderly and those with vulnerable medical conditions.
Best of all, Southeast Georgia farmers have partnered with a non profit to supply fresh produce for us to add to our nonperishable supplies.
Great healthy produce. Here's the load I picked up yesterday.
Glad I have new hips (and some well vetted volunteers) to offload this great resource.
Yellow squash, zucchini, and sweet potatoes provided by our generous hardworking farmers!
Hello Mojo my friend. Would you believe that is a year ago today that I had my op. Doesn't time fly. Things have greatly improved though I don't think the nerve damage will ever be fully healed. I am grateful for any tiny improvements that come my way these days. My lower leg and knee are very very weak and a bit of a nuisance to be honest. At least the appalling hip pain has completely gone. Thank you for the kindness that you showed me both before and after my op. x
Busy at work, bored from the social distancing...so Sunday I decided to learn how to ride a Harley.
Lessons learned...starting off, balancing, shifting gears...wheee!
Hard Lessons learned...dont ride in shorts and barefoot.
Wow @Mojo333 that looks very painful. I’m glad you’re ok though. You’ve added one more memory to the pandemic of 2020!! Be sure to take care of those bruises and cuts and stay safe! No one wants to see you on the sidelines!!
Oh my goodness! Glad you’re okay and that you were having fun. I always judge what crazy things I might do by how embarrassed I would be sitting across from my OS explaining how I hurt myself. In this case, go big or go home, right? It’s all in the attitude. Stay safe! Happy Spring. Happy Easter. Pat
@Mojo333 A very Happy 3 Year Anniversary! You are definitely living your life to the fullest and showing us how it's done! You are definitely an inspiration for anyone thinking about going through this, whether it be one hip or both!
