WE SURE COULD USE A LITTLE GOOD NEWS TODAY

Bild_News Apparently it’s a slow news day in Palm Beach County. I was watching the local news tonight while preparing dinner and this is what I heard:

A local man has placed a personal ad in the paper to find a girlfriend. Not so odd, you might think. It’s for his dog. Yes, it seems that Buster has decided he needs a soul-mate. He is ready to settle down and start a family. He is even ready to start sharing his toys.

I gave My Harley Stud that look that makes me look like a confused Boxer. You know the one that makes that awful wrinkle in the middle of my forehead. No? …….Anyway…… I said, “That is just wrong on so many levels.”

Don’t get me wrong, I love my mushy faced pooches more than life itself but seriously?

First: Isn’t this big, burly guy just a little embarrassed to go on television to announce that he is playing matchmaker for his tiny dog? I mean, My Harley Stud is a sucker for our 10lb Shih Tsu but if he was on television, he wouldn’t give her the time of day. It would ruin his image, right?

Second: Why is this newsworthy?

Third: I was just about to go into my third reason when I decided I should text our friend, Mr. Lolly at the news station. Mr. Lolly is a part of the local news team and I thought it would be fun to give him my Smart Mouth opinion about such an important piece of journalism being broadcast from his studio when it occurred to me…..I’m going about this all wrong!

As a BONIFIED member of the Pollyanna Cheer Club, isn’ t this exactly what I wish and pray for? Good news. Surely Buster’s search for true love being aired today means that we had less killing, theft, raping and pillaging going on here in Palm Beach County. Could it be that no one was arrested for wearing their jeans too low. No refugees washed up on shore? No manatees were harmed by boaters today? No drive-by shootings? I like this kind of broadcast. Please forgive my former cynical attitude (shame on me) and bring on the sunshine. I could get used to this.

Maybe tomorrow’s news will be good too. I can’t wait to see what happens. I might even start to watch more than the weather.

Couldn’t we all use a little Good news today?







Hugs,

Smart Mouth Broad

Excellent way to work your way through this! WE NEED more good news!
You are wise!

Jeanette said...

Maybe it's just me, but dog's finding soulmates when I can't find my just makes me....jealous. LOL

I am all for good news. Sometimes up here we have the best stories - who caught a big fish, a traffic light is out but will be fixed before *rush* hour - all good stuff.

You have a 10lb dog?? How did I not know this? I am on a quest for a puppy who will grow up to be a 10lb dog.

I love that you are a Pollyana!

xxoo

There's honest-to-goodness pillaging where you live??

Podunk gets more boring by the minute...

Mrs. K said...

You want good news? Here: I didn't pop anyone's head like a pimple yesterday- and we all lived happily ever after until tomorrow when i go back to work :)

How true, We need more stories of Help, Hope, Peace and Love. Anne Murray said it right. We sure could use a little good news today!. Thank you for reminding us. I'm waiting for the proverbial boy scout or girl scout (or should I say young person scout) walking an old (or maybe it should be seasoned) person across the street! Now wouldn't that be news worthy. Love and Light, Nina P.

Good ole Buster.

Gaston Studio said...

Sure beats the hell out of "news" about celebrities.

The Peach Tart said...

Everyone (doggy) deserves love.

Tony Letts said...

Don't you think he was really interested in the dog suitors' owners and hoping they'd be good looking ladies? Just saying...

midlife slices said...

Yes we can all use some good news even if it's about doggy love. Thank you for putting your unique spin on this and making me smile.

HUGS

Creepy said...

look at you going and blowing sunshine up our asses.

thanks.

blueviolet said...

I thought it was really stupid too until you mentioned that it was likely due to not enough bad news. In that case, I'm cool with it!

Sprite's Keeper said...

If your news is that light, then it
's wonderful. I personally can't stand our weatherman. He loves to give fashion tips in the morning to the women... Yeah..

JOE TODD said...

I think Tony L. hit the nail on the head. As I type I am listening to the apostles of the absurd on the TV

darsden said...

Amen we all could use A LOT of good news.. thank you that is a good song I haven't heard it in a while.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Movie-Once again, you're making me want to move to Maine. Yes, Pixie is about 10 lbs.

Jan-Oh yeah, we have a whole village of pillage......rs.

Tony-I have to admit, that thought did cross my mind.

Creepy-That's me, Mary Sunshine. LOL

SK aka Jen-I LOVE our weatherman but I'm biased.

Fragrant Liar said...

I'm afraid I have some bad news, SMB. Our pooch, Papi, had his huevos cut today. He's about 3 pounds of doggy testosterone -- well, he WAS. Now, emasculated, he's a bonafide sob story, and the little Chihuaha girl in heat down the street is heartbroken.

Ginger said...

We have a cat named Pixie. We call her Pix, and sometimes Pissie and frequently just Piss.

Speaking of news...I was listening to CNN and they were talking about all the horses being butchered down there. *Shudders*
