Wednesday:) Words of Wisdom

5 Mar

” I don’t watch much television or read the newspaper, so I get all the news, political advice, and words of wisdom I need from my Facebook page. Sad, isn’t it?”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


It’s true. I don’t watch much tv anymore, and the news is just depressing these days. I do love Facebook though. There’s a lot of nonsense and stupid stuff on there too, but I just scroll past it. I enjoy seeing my friend’s artwork, or seeing new baby pictures of family and friends or beautiful photos of sunsets and road trips that people go on. I want to see and learn beautiful things, NOT sad and disgusting things.

” Surround yourself with beautiful people and beautiful things because life is beautiful and you are beautiful, too. ~ Me

Words of wisdom from my Facebook friends…

Thursday:) Things To Think About From Facebook

“I get all my my news, information, and inspiration from My Facebook page. It’s all real and factual, right?”

~ Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


Just a few photos, cartoons and inspirational snippets found on my Facebook page today.

Wednesday:) Words of Wisdom…From Facebook

27 Jul

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” ― Dr. Seuss


I’ve said this more than once, ” Everything I know, I’ve learned on Facebook.” Well, not really, but almost. I have hundreds of friends, many of whom are also Facebook friends. They always post cute family pictures and share words of wisdom. I’ll share a few words with you today.

Good advice Lynda!

Now, you have a few words of wisdom to contemplate. Here’s one of the best…There is nothing like a hug to get you through the day, so I’m sending a great big one your way!

Tuesday:) Time To Share 

24 Feb

“Every important fact I ever learned, I learned on Facebook.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


I spend way too much time on Facebook. But, I must confess, I rarely watch the news or read a newspaper, so I get all my news upsdates and vital information on Facebook. And we all know, everything on Facebook is true. Right? 

Then, when I learn something fantastic, I always click “share.” Of course, I click “like” on every friend’s post and picture of what they had for lunch, where they went on vacation, and every grandchild’s ballet recital or baseball game. I expect the same in return.  

I get the most comments and likes on my Friday night ritual of having a Black Russian. And, I post this pretty much every Friday night. What would we do without Facebook, my friend? Oh, if you’re reading this and we’re not Facebook friends, hey, send me a friend request so you can find out where I’m going to lunch tomorrow. See ya!


Friday Friends, Facebook, and Finding Rita

8 Aug

“The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.” 

― Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah


Friday again? Kickboxing 8:30-9:30, stop at store to get snacks and treats for my senior art group where I volunteer, visit with Miss Karri at Papa Murphy, scoot home, put ice cream in freezer, go for 40 min. walk in crazy heat, shower, go to Towne Creek, home by 6:30, check emails, now writing my blog. Zip, zip, the day is gone. 

My artist friends at Towne Creek were so happy to see me. I hadn’t been there since June. I showed them Joe and Lindsay’s wedding pictures, then I made root beer floats and we sketched flowers in a vase. Fun!

Yesterday , I received a Facebook friend request from someone named Rita. Hmm? Who was that? When I looked at her page, we had one common friend… My mom. Oh! Cousin Rita, Uncle Jesse’s daughter. We haven’t seen each other in…maybe 40 or 50 years. Wow! So, of course I responded yes to the friend request.  

Cousin Rita called me a little while ago. Surprise! She had called my mom to get my phone number. We talked for a very long time about the old days, family, parents, children, and stupid, lying, cheating ex-husbands. We laughed when we realized how long it had been. She was thinking I was in my forties and I thought she was in her fifties. Well, tack on another twenty years. Yikes!

It’s funny, when you haven’t seen someone in a very long time, you remember them as so much younger. It’s always fun to find an old friend or family member. Thank you Facebook!

Hi, Cousin Rita! You are just as beautiful and charming as I remember. 


Wednesday Words of Wisdom

15 Jan

“I understand that we’re smarter than me.
That’s one reason I like the idea of sharing.”
― Toba Beta, Master of Stupidity
I’m still teetering on the brink of …I’m feeling better and where’s the Tylenol. I’ll get a burst of energy that lasts for fifteen minutes, then I have to lay down. Or is it lie down? I’m too cranky to look it up or even care. So, my words of wisdom today shall be photos, funny quotes, and wisdom shared by my Facebook friends.

I like the idea of sharing, and yes, there are a lot of people out there smarter than me. (Well, maybe a couple.)










Saturday: Sharing and Caring

16 Nov

“To do good is noble. To tell others to do good is even nobler and much less trouble.”
― Mark Twain
Everything I’ve learned in life, I’ve learned from Facebook. That’s a joke, but it leads into my theme for today. I thought I’d share some pictures and quotes from my friends on Facebook. Sometimes funny, sometimes insightful, always entertaining.




What would we do without these profound sentiments?


Even though it was chilly this morning, I went for a walk before my writing group. Thank goodness I did, because once again, I saved the world from many a flat tire. Today’s encounter…


Friday: the Face of Facebook Wisdom

7 Jun

“Wisdom cannot be imparted. Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else … Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.”
― Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha
I think wisdom can be imparted. Everything I ever wanted to know, I learned on Facebook. Not!!! But I thought that was funny. Thought I’d share some words of wisdom and insightful knowledge that my Facebook friends have shared and posted.







Sunday Salutations and Other Sentimental Stuff

21 Apr

So much craziness is going on in the world, it’s refreshing to hear the voices of people who just want to enjoy life without being inundated with mayhem 24/7. One of my friends, Gail, posted on her Facebook page that she was sick and tired of it. Well, good for her. I strongly believe the more violence and terror you see, the more it effects you. That’s why I try to post mostly happy or uplifting stories, except of course, when my dogs drive me nuts. Here’s what Gail had to say, and I totally agree. Then my friend, Carolyn, commented with such a lovely response about my writing.


Carolyn wrote: “Yes, I agree with you Gail. Funny, that is what Fr. Michael’s sermon was on this morning. We are inundated with news now as compared to when he was young and one could sit with a cup of coffee and read the newspaper or turn on the TV at your own decisive time. My one comment was we could sit around the radio and listen. Then spend time looking at the beauty around us and thank God for those times also. I have been thinking a lot about Toni Armenta Andrukaitisitus lately. As I was perusing my facebook there were all kind of hate messages against and for our president, against the bomber, etc. Then I came across Toni’s post. She sees something good every day in her life and writes a post about it. So refreshing and fulfilling. Thank you Toni!”

I am honored that so many people are influenced by my positive and humorous writings. If we all shared a little sunshine instead of gloom, the world would be a much better place. Have a great day, as the old annoying cliché goes!
