Where is everybody?? 🤔

What’s missing in this dreamy photo?

I’ll tell you what’s missing… for starters, my dog. In the real world, my dog would be on that white mattress/cushion thing doing her digging thing until she collapsed into an exhausted heap to sleep for 2 whole minutes. Then she’d jump down onto that snow-white carpet and repeat the process before chewing and eating the fringe.

Know what else is missing?

My husband. In the real world, he’d have just mowed the lawn (thank-you honey) and collapsed on that white mattress/cushion thing with his muddy boots up on on the armrest. He’d wipe the sweat off his brow using one of those perdy yellow pillers and have popped open a beer. (The cap would mysteriously wind up inside one of them there lanterns..and he’d insist he had NO IDEA, no idea at all, how it got there.)

Lastly, yours truly is missing from that gorgeous, peaceful, porch scene.

I’m not swinging on that soft mattress/cushion thing in a Lilly Pulitzer ensemble, laptop balanced on toned, tan legs, scrolling through instagram sipping on a Savannah tea with Jimmy Buffet crooning in the background. Nope..


Me n’ Daisy are swingin’ here instead..

At least I’m not yellin’ at anyone.

  2. LOL – this is great! It is a surreal photo of an impossibility in the real world, as you very aptly point out. Thanks for the chuckles.

    I think too often we forget that what we see on Instagram, Facebook, etc. isn’t real. If we scrutinize those images that leave us longing for more, like you, we would realize they don’t hold up to the real world. Thanks for the reminder, Cindy!

      Well said..especially the part about “holding up!” You take that scene and plop it onto my porch and it’ll be trashed in a week..not on purpose..just from “real life!” I remember years ago purchasing 2 butter yellow sofas for our Florida home..all that stain protection stuff was new and the lady swore this magic protector would protect against all stains and if not..full replacement! I fell for it..and with 3 (then 4) kids, I’m sure you know how that story went.. So yeah..I’d LOVE to have everything in that photo..I just know I’d turn into the wicked witch of the South trying to keep it pristine.
