“Missed Connection Monday” is brought to you by your local Craigslist. These are real “love notes” that strangers leave for other strangers in the ‘Personals’ section of Craigslist. Or as I like to call it –
“Your local serial killer hunting ground.”

Whatever happened to meeting someone at the bar and going home with them? Does that still happen? I haven’t had a drink in over a year and I never go to bars anymore. I’m a 39-year-old single male missing the good old days. Miss the thrill of waking up next to someone and thinking “Maybe this is the one. She’s cute! She must have had beer goggles.”.
***Dear 39 year old single male. You can still have those “good old days” but you’ll probably have to, um, I don’t know…
Climb into a fucking TIME MACHINE and have them drop you at the first DISCOTHEQUE you fly over.

“What happened to meeting someone at the bar and going home with them?”
Hhhmmmm… Let’s see…
Any other STD. 
Every creepy crime show on cable or streaming on wifi which documents that “thrill” of NOT waking up next to someone… Freak.
Oh, and dating apps.

Also. You’re talking one night stands and beer goggles? You’re not 39 creeper.

First, I wish I could have a Paczki from back home.
Second, yaaawwwnnnn… I’m still waking up. Today is a twofer post, the Monday/Tuesday combo because I literally stayed in bed all day yesterday. Not even kidding. I felt like I was coming down with something and spent a ridiculous amount of time sleeping. Apparently, I needed it. Since having cancer I have learned to listen to my body.

Not much going on out here. My pup is finally gaining weight again after being so sick so I am over the moon about that.

I’ve been adding to my crafting inventory and finishing up a few personal projects.

My grandson Aidan turned 13 this month.
He loves knives so I got him this one. I know nothing about knives I just thought this one looked cool.
He loves it. So, score one for Mimi.

❤ Finally catching up on Law & Order SVU.
Meet “Sonny Carisi” my new crime show crush.
His real name is Peter Scanavino. ❤
An exquisite example of the finest Italian hottie quite possibly on the planet.
Who doesn’t love an Italian stallion?

Okay. Jumping off to get on with my real life of whatever the hell it is that I do. Today I have zero planned and I’m okay with that. I’m still trying to shake the cobwebs outta’ my head after an early morning and that all day sleep coma yesterday. Geesh.

I’ve been around to visit with all of you and just so you know, you’ve made me laugh and cry this morning so that’s a balanced start to my Tuesday.
I hope you’re all having a great day.
Lemme’ know what your week looks like in the comments below pleeaase.

  1. Love the ads. Crazy people out there.

    Your grandson is handsome.

    I’m glad you’re feeling okay today. Sometimes you just need to sleep the day away.

    I linked this post to Happy Tuesday.

    Have a fabulous day, Karen. Big hug and tons of love. ♥


    1. I think so too, Liz. I truly believe that if we don’t listen to our bodies’ gentle nudging we will hear our bodies’ shouting. Usually from a dr’s office or hospital… Thank you. As I said, I know nothing of knives but I thought it was cool looking. 🙂


  2. How is that “39” yer old man still single?

    Not sure I would give a knife like that to my grandson, but I’m sure you know what you are doing. I don’t trust my grandson with a squirt gun.


  3. Super creepy dude in the missed connection today. Back in the day, we called it ONS (one night stand, or physically being ON some fox!) like the Italian Stallion in your photo!

    My daughter had a paczki today at a coffee shop. This area is overrun with Polish peeps, so it’s very popular here. I had some king cake last week, flown in from New Orleans to my husband’s HQ. My week? Well, I’m packing for Florida, but not soon enough. Snow is supposed to hit us tomorrow, so I guess I’ll need to do some shoveling as well. See you in March!


    1. Oh, I’m so jealous of your daughter and her paczki. They’re just the best. We used to get them in Hamtramck (Michigan.) Same polish bakery forever and ever. Seriously tho, if you’re not getting your paczki from a polish bakery you really are just getting a jelly donut. 🙂 – Oh! Safe travels!!! Florida is a great place to warm up from all that cold.


  4. Why, why, Why, did you mention donuts? Now I want one and the nearest donut shop is in the city. Which is probably a good thing because I certainly don’t need a donut. Happy Birthday to your grandson, that is a cool looking knife, remind him not to carry it to school where it might be seen as a weapon.


    1. Omgosh. We have donut shops everywhere around here. Such temptation. I don’t need them either! – Thank you for the birthday wishes for my grandson. And no, he is not allowed to carry his knives anywhere but on camping trips and around his yard around his home which is quite woodsy. I hope my grandson uses it. It’s cool looking but it’s also for everyday use.


  5. That Craigslist guy sure is out of touch! I can’t imagine any sane woman would respond. 😛 Not familiar with Paczkis, but I bet they’re delicious. Happy Belated Birthday to your grandson! He’s a cutie. I haven’t watched Law & Order SVU in a long time but was a fan of Christopher Meloni. The new guy looks good but too young. I’ve always been attracted to Latin types and married my very own Italian Stallion way back in 1973. 😀 That is good news about Luci! Sounds like your body needed that extra sleep. Get it when you can.


    1. I really am curious how many people do respond to those stupid ads. I’m with you. I can’t imagine any sane woman would respond but I bet a few desperate ones do. – Paczkis are delicious but one will put you up a size! Seriously. If they’re made by a true polish bakery they’ve got a million amazing calories in them. Fortunately, they only come out once a year. 🙂 – I like Christopher Meloni too. SVU seems to have a nice selection of Italian men. 🙂 – Lucky you to marry your Italian Stallion way back in 1973… What a great time to be able to have a real life. I was only 10. 😦 But I was aware of the so cool world happening around me! – Yesssss. I’m so happy Luci is doing better. She’s only 12 lbs. now but I’m hoping she continues to put on more weight. She has acid reflux and needs medicine for that too. I can’t face the fact that time is marching on for her… To me, she’s 14 yrs. young. ❤

  6. OMG the “good old days” picking up someone at a bar?! That’s what he misses? How many ways can you spell “loser”!

    It’s great that your pup is finally gaining weight after being so sick! Happy 13th birthday to your handsome grandson! The knife you bought him does look cool.

    Peter Scanavino is a hottie!

    We’ve had contractors here since the middle of last week b/c we’re updating and expanding the backyard patio. Last week was so noisy with the jackhammers digging out the old patio. I had to leave with the pups. The contractors will be pouring the concrete on Monday, it’s a stamped concrete patio. I’m not sure how many more days it will take. I hate all the noise and mess but it should be really nice when it’s done. Hope you have a great week, Karen! 🙂


    1. Wow. Lots of fun stuff going on even if it is loud. The end result will, of course, be worth it. 🙂 – I spoke too soon about my pup. We took her to the vet yesterday and they think she has cancer. She has another vet appt. tomorrow and I think we’ll be planning our goodbye to Miss Luci. Needless-to-say, I’m crushed… – Thank you for the birthday wishes for my grandson. ❤

      1. Karen, I am so sorry that Miss Luci has cancer and you need to plan your goodbye to her. That is so sad! 😦 I’ve been there with three pups over the years and I know how crushing it is to go through that. Sending lots of love and hugs! ❤


        1. Thank you… ❤ We're still waiting on tests and then we'll sit down with our vet and discuss. It's absolutely horrible…
