Day 1779: If you see something, say something

“If you see something, say something” is a campaign by the United States Department of Homeland Security.

I see that “If you see something, say something” is something I do on my blog everyday.  I see something and  I say something.

If you see something that a friend, family member, or co-worker is doing that you think is harmful, do you say something?  I do, but it’s difficult.

If you see something in these photos, say something.




If you see something in these lyrics I composed yesterday about a very unpleasant person, say something:

I can’t avoid you

You hemorrhoid you.


I CAN avoid you

You hemorrhoid you.

If Stephen Sondheim saw those lyrics, I wonder what he’d say.  Something.

If you see something in the song “Say Something,”  say something.

If you say something in a comment, I’ll say something back.

I’d like to say something to everyone who helped me create today’s blog post and — of course! — to you, for seeing it.

  1. No !! I didn’t see a hidden bomb in any of your photos, and the only thing of interest I saw way down here in Geelong was a great thunderstorm that mother nature put on for us to “see”.

  2. When I saw your bowl with lots of lovely gemstones, I came to think and ask you; Have you ever seen one of your beautiful cats lay in same bowl upstairs the gemstones Ann?

  3. Here’s to avoiding the ‘roids, Ann!

  4. I’ve been conditioned. When I saw the title of your post I knew exactly what to expect. And I started laughing. Because I am silly. Because I knew I wanted to say “I see a post from Ann sliding across my screen!” Or I wanted to say “something.” You gave me my first laugh of the day. Thank you!

  5. Ha! I love the lyrics. What a pleasant way to say so much about an unpleasant person. I’m sending you some mental Preparation-H to help.

  6. Some jokes should be heard and not seen, such as the one about the sea food diet–“I sea food, I eat it.” And then there are jokes that can be seen and heard, like this one:

  7. There’s quite a haemarroid epidemic these days! I wonder what the equivalent of preparatioan H is for people?…. Just saying … 💛

  8. I “see” one of my favorite blogger’s new post. And I’m “saying” to all it’s worth the time to read.

  9. Such a great song/video to include in your post, Ann. Lovely…is something I often say here.

  10. If it is any consolation, hemorrhoids have a pretty stinky life. They’re the butt of jokes a lot. And everybody thinks they’re a pain.

    To borrow a line from Fiddler on the Roof, “May God bless your hemorrhoid… and keep him far away from you.”


  11. Your lyrics are going to stick in my head…I can think of a few people who deserve them! Stephen Sondheim might have some of the same people in mind. LOL! I love that beautiful basket of polished stones, Ann. You have a good eye for “seeing something” and saying something follows naturally! 🙂

  12. Here’s something for you to see

  13. Love your basket of polished gems. Thank you.

    • I love that basket too! Everybody who registers for my groups chooses a stone they like and gets to keep it. Thanks for another keeper of a comment, JoHanna.
