The Mellow Mushroom combined with some excellent fellowship is how today’s blog title came into being…Mellow-ship. And yes, it was all good!
After today’s discussion time and dvd, I need to review my notes to get it all together in my mind. I’ve got to ruminate on it. But, alas, that will not happen today. I’ve got to rest-a-bit instead. My cheese bread and Greek salad combo are making me droopy, too.
On another note…Anita Renfroe, Christian comedienne extraordinaire (did I spell that correctly?), posted a comment on our blog the other day, I think it was her. If it wasn’t then somebody in cyberspace is being “funny”. Needless to say, I tried to be cool about it, but I had to know the truth so I looked into it (obsessed is what I can be) and it seems that someone posted it from her website. I couldn’t rest. I sent her an email directly asking if she posted a comment on the blog but I haven’t heard back from her. So, Anita, if you’re out there reading this, thanks for the props! You’re the best! If it wasn’t you , then thanks to whoever sent the encouragement in a roundabout way. Check out Anita’s webpage sometime and make sure you view her version of William Tell’s Overture known as “Momsense”. Click here at www.anitarenfroe.com.
I was telling the ladies at lunch that I would have enjoyed being a Christian comedienne. There’s one problem. I would not be able to come up with new material. Can’t you see it? My intro would go like this…”still doing the one and only stand up routine she has ever known and done for 30 years, a true class act who keeps her lipstick in the lines, the funny girl for the Lord,…heeeeere’s Amy!” (Hear the applause? See the spotlight swirling roundabout?) Then the one lone fan would stop his rampant clapping and I would look into his eyes and say, “Thanks Rob. You light up my life!”
I looked up to Carol Burnett and Erma Bombeck. Carol’s acting and humor inspired me (even enough to dress up like her as the cleaning lady when I was in elementary school one time). I could not miss an episode of her weekly show! I loved it when she would get tickled at Harvey, Lyle, Tim, and Vicki but try to maintain seriousness through her crackling smile. I still laugh at her portrayal of Scarlet O’Hara as if it’s the first time I’m seeing it! If you want to make me happy, then show me some “Mama’s Family” episodes! I loved her character in that. Then there’s Erma Bombeck. Erma’s propensity for humor in written form was and still is entertaining to me. Anita is like those two wrapped up together and she loves Jesus! What a woman.
It pleases me to know that since we are made in God’s image, surely He created our ability to laugh and enjoy good, clean humor because He does too.
I hope your day ends with a good dose of laughter and that you have sweet dreams as a result!
