oh, i love to laugh…

the best memories i have of my life are the ones where ive shared laughter with another human being… could be with a random shopper behind me in line at ralphs who happens to have the same take on a story in one of the ridiculous inquirer rags, or with a family member over a lovingly remembered guffaw of another family member, or with a scene partner after a nailed comedic scene that sent the audience into hysterics… these are memories that i hold dear…

i consider myself extremely fortunate to have funny friends, meaning friends who make me laugh… i value a sense of humor above almost all else… any and everyone who is in my life, is in my life because they bring joy and laughter to the table… joyous, uplifting, inclusionary laughter is the most positive expression of life as far as im concerned…

the memories that absolutely/ positively/ one million percent make up who i am as a human being are the ones that have turned me and those involved into rolling, gooey, uncontrollably joyous, laughter… thats the only way to describe it… we just become laughter, thats how absolute it is…

lucky for me today i had another funny as sh8t moment to add to my collection… lo and i were sitting around bragging to each other about what tricks our dogs could do… wolf is always eager to show his stuff so i ran through his routine finishing with his hand shake… lo was impressed and said yeah, mickey can shake as well but it looks more like a “heil hitler” … she was referencing the infamous german nazi salute from WWI and WWII… oh okay i said, then stood up and without a thought in my mind other then to get mickey to shake i faced lo’s little dog, looked him right in the face and said heil hitler… lo not a thought in her mind, other then to give me positive guidance immediately said oh no, you say shake like normal but then he gives a heil hilter…

omg when the hilarity of both of our innocence hit us i thought i was gonna turn to permanent jelly… i could not control my body i was laughing so completely… the absurdity in our interpretation of the whole event was priceless… it was a perfect piece of comedy… recreating that moment immediately sends my body into surrender mode… who knows if any one else will ever find it as thoroughly entertaining as we do…


i have no idea what comes after this life… or if there is an after, but if there is, these are the moments i will burn into my soul in hopes they will follow me wherever…

you can all go jump in a lake…

i concur with anyone and everyone who believe sedona is magical… in a sweaty sort of way… damn its hot here… i made several attempts to explore the numerous hiking trails throughout sedona however, leaving grizz in 102 degree heat would most likely culminate in some sort of disastrous outcome so i had to forgo exploration this go around… not having a second vehicle puts me at an extreme disadvantage… pulling into strip malls/grocery stores/drycleaners in my 32 foot monstrosity is difficult enough… not being able to valet park is a travesty… im gonna have to figure something out… apparently my extremely low mileage mint condition mercedes benz c230 cannot be towed behind bdh… oh dear oh my whats a girl like me to do…


my car was still in los angeles… my heart/head/mind/soul/dogs were not… i knew there was no way in hades i could continue on with my journey without the use of a separate vehicle… my friend cheryl has a friend named paul who would be willing to trade me a 2005 honda element with 68,000 miles on it for my 2005 mercedes with 28,000 miles on it… an element would be the perfect car for me under my current circumstances… from what id heard i could literally hose the insides out… omg how my life has changed… ive traded my chic upscale townhouse for a shit can on wheels, my mercedes benz for a honda and my designer shoes have become chew toys for my dogs… green acres here i am…


i needed some time to assimilate all of this… may as well take advantage of the spiritual properties in the area and meditate on the whole damn mess id gotten myself into… see if there was any way to salvage some pieces of what i used to be… it was not going to be at the rancho sedona rv park… they were filled to the rim with brim… the closest rv park to the actual city of sedona was near a town called cornville… seeing as corn is my most favorite food in the whole wide world i took this as a positive sign… i love corn in every/all capacity.. corn soup, corn chowder, corn tamales, corn fritters, corn cakes,corn on the cob, popcorn, corn dogs, kitten corn, white corn, corn relish, creamed corn, cornish hen and cornbeef… we made our way to lo lo mai springs campground which was located about 12 miles from the first campground… due to the stellar way in which i manage to completely discombobulate directions i pulled into the campground an hour later… owner david met me at the sign in area happy to hear id finally made it… i must have sounded pretty frazzled when i called for directions a half hour earlier…


what a beautiful campground this is i commented to david as he drove me around the place letting me pick whichever site suited me… he explained its family owned… i felt pretty sure he was part of the family… i enjoyed his welcoming spirit… i had just left malibu beach rv park which was managed on the opposite end of the spectrum… it appears that a pleasant, smiling, welcoming demeanor sends harmful electric waves to the staff at malibu rv park… so extremely unpleasant that they have no choice but to pay it forward to all who enter their hallowed grounds… honestly my focus is trained to see the positive… i so very rarely make disparaging remarks about much but in the hopes for positive change i will offer encouragement to the employees at malibu rv park… kindly excavate the corncobs mired deeply up your rear orifices, take a class in customer service, and be nice… just be nice… if you cant be nice than figure out why you are so miserable… the bottom line is those who have to deal with you only have to for a limited time… you are the ones who have to live with yourself forever… may as well figure out how to be happier… its a much better way to exist…


once david and his staff made sure we were all settled in i took the boys for a nice stroll… lo lo mai springs is expansive… along with rv sites for all sizes, they have tent sites located along the river as well as cabins available in numerous capacities… theres a picturesque duck pond, a swimming pool/jacuzzi, as well as the river surrounding the perimeters… i was told by numerous staff members that there are ancient indian dwellings located somewhere above… i could never get any definitive directions… not wanting to roam the wilds of arizona i opted to limit my exploration to the campground itself…


both of my dogs have been inside or on leash for most of the past 8 months… i was dying to let them run around in their natural state… id enabled wolfs treats addiction with such veracity that only the stringent of rehabs would break him of it… i had no choice… it was the only iron clad assurance i had that he would no longer run away… grizzs addiction was starting to take hold so i felt confident hed stay close if i let them roam freely… besides grizzly’s intense separation anxiety kept him at my arms length… grizz literally screams when he cant see me… who can blame him really… feeling confident, i let them loose… how much fun it is to watch the two of them run around, chasing each other, wrestling together… so fast the two of them… zipping here, there and…. omg omg omg s**t f**k[;q[=pl[+(*&*^^$^@#$^W%^&((*&_(()+_()_+O WTF wtf there goes grizzly running straight into the duck pond… im screaming as i jump in after him to save my 13 week baby from drowning… yet hes slipping away from me… wtf… no hes not slipping away from me… hes swimming away from me… wolf jumps in the pond to save me saving grizzly only grizzly is swimming away from the both of us…


thank god i got ahold of my baby boy in a short amount of time… we were all sopping wet… as well as stinky slimy and scared… my nerves were shattered… without any thought to anything i instinctively leaped into that pond without a care for myself… wolf jumped in to save us without any thought to himself… i smiled, then cried as i felt this incredible surge of love for my boys… im really getting the whole motherly love thing… wild… i wasnt sure if i really had it in me… omg how my life has changed… has it ever…
