Hey gang, it’s time for another edition of… wait for it… As promised, we studied last week’s submissions offered by our illustrious readers and we must say, your overall sense of humor is highly questionable. Of course, that’s what we count on here at Feeding on Folly, so no worries on that score. But just… Read More It’s a Bad Joke Monday once again
Are you as excited as I am?!
Well, thanks for showing up anyway.… Read More Bad Joke Monday has arrived!
I just found out that due to the pandemic, the earliest I’ll be back to work is May 4th. That means a whole month of not working! I think Husband is worried. Not because of finances, but because… well, for this first week off I’ve mopped the floors, vacuumed twice, baked bread, repotted all my… Read More Starting this Monday: a new feature!
It wasn’t a resolution of mine, but it just so happens that with the new year I’ve been starting each morning with a bit of drawing and a lot of clarinet practice. As far as the drawing goes, Daughter gave me these cool watercolor markers that are incredibly fun.

She claimed we needed to do a follow up from last week’s post,… Read More No chickadees this week. Instead, let’s talk more about racism
