OOPS One More Fat Lady Postcard

This is another fat woman postcard I found at home and kept cause it was funny.
I think it's the last one.

We talk about the fun in traveling,then we wonder why we are getting fat because when we travel we eat and drink more.

This woman is sitting talking about travel broadening one, to a skinny person who might be just as knowledgeable but watches her food intake.

I have to admit unless it's a business trip, vacation tends to let you loosen your belt quite a bit and then you pay for it when you get back

But then it also depends on what type of job you have.

I remember watching the Galloping Gourmet who was such a funny Chef.
Everything he made he put wine in it.
He always had a red nose and gained so much weight he had to stop the show so he could look after himself, lose weight and stop drinking.
When he did his show without the booze, it wasn't as funny anymore.
I Love Lucy
also did shows pretending she was drunk and she was a real class act because she did not drink.

So did Red Skelton.

As opposed to before, when every movie had some one smoking a cigarette, today we have shows, especially with women, who are seen to always be drinking.
There has to be a lot of booze they say, for people to have fun.

Just yesterday I happened to switch on Chelsea Lately and she told every one, that the only time people could have fun is when they are boozed up.

I found it ironic cause, I might be wrong, but no one seemed drunk, on her comedy show.
Or were they?
No one is drunk on the Just for Laughs Show or Comedy Central.
Seinfeld is funny and we laugh and enjoy his act without booze.
In fact we watch and enjoy these shows over and over without an ounce of alcohol.

Craig Fergusen is a recovered alcoholic and he seems to have a great time entertaining without booze and lives to remember the next day, what he did, as opposed to life being a blur.

What is the point, if life goes by and you don't see or remember it?
The same goes for marijuana.
People take it to make life go away and then they find everything funny and say :"Wow, this is cool.
Let's have some more." not realizing that if you need a crutch to be happy, something you are doing is not right.

When I was in Malaysia, I got the same kind of feeling standing in the middle of a quiet forest, where there was absolute silence.
It was literally mind blowing and this is where I learned that people need this, more than the other.

I don't know. No matter what you do, you have to know your limits.
Travel sure does broaden ones' knowledge......
if you can remember it. lol

Have a Great Day!

It's good to be happy in the raw, to just be happy without the other stuff, which actually robs us of joy as it pretends to be joy. Nice post.

I wish more people would give life a go, they'd be agreeably surprised and they'd remeber it too!

I remember the Galloping Gourmet, he was still slim when he was on English TV; Oh, to have been invited to taste what he'd been cooking. We never missed a show.

I'm afraid I don't understand the idea that you can't have fun without an alcoholic fueller. As far as I'm concerned, I like to have fun and remember it. And also, I never like to be out of control of myself. Red Skelton and Lucille Ball were the greatest. I grew up with the two of them!

Diane - I agree. I am of the same thinking. :)
