When I Look Back on 2020

I don’t want to dwell on the heartache, loneliness, or anxieties. I want to let go of the resentment I had about people breaking the “rules” and doing whatever they wanted. I was jealous, yet I had to listen to my conscience and follow the instructions given by state governors, the White House.

Everything I looked forward to in 2020 was canceled. Mostly family fun time with my best friend and the exclusive time with my granddaughters over the summer. It’s the little, simple times together – like playing cards, watching movies, Oscar night, and being silly.

Hey! I think that may be an answer for many of us. Things are so serious now. News is not worth watching unless you want the weather forecast. They are usually wrong about that anyway. Where did my silliness go? I need some back, to help me feel normal again. Maybe it’s time for a Jeff Dunham marathon? Nobody is as silly as Peanut, right?

If you have not had the pleasure of seeing a Jeff Dunham special, the time is NOW. Other comedians on my “best of” list: Sinbad, Jim Gaffigan, and Louie Anderson. Lewis Black is a big favorite of mine. Probably because he is such a good ranter (is that a word?) I can forgive his occasional use of foul language because, well, I love him. I love the fact that his parents are at the show and laugh so hard – even at their own expense.

Okay then. You have your assignment this week. Find comedians that make you laugh and feel good. Search on YouTube for Jeff Dunham and meet Peanut. If you have HBO or Showtime channels there’s a good chance of finding comedians. Prime Video is an excellent source.

Y’all have an excellent & Silly week
