Lose Your Head

Lose (one’s) head. To lose one’s composure and act emotionally or irrationally.

Lose your head. COMMON If you lose your head, you panic and do not remain calm in a difficult situation.

Nah, I don’t think Jimi lost his head…

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

  1. No I think his handsome body is attached to that equally handsome head of his. That’s a great shot of him! I know plenty of other people who ARE losing their head though – these days it seems to be a bit common. I just keep enjoying my chocolate and hope for the best!

    Hugs to you and Jimi, Pam and Teddy

    • Good morning, Pam. Haha… loved your comment, especially the chocolate part of course…

      Hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday, my friend! Jimi sends his regards!

    • Hi Christine. Jimi loves to take a nap on the cool marble floor upstairs now we’re having warmer days again. And I also believe he loves to look down on me… 😉

      Hope you’re having a wonderful day, my friend!

    • Go easy on the coffee this morning, Tim! Breath in slowly and relax…
      I know what you mean, it happens to me sometimes and afterwards I’m mad at myself that I lost control…

      • Lately all the stupid technology has been driving me crazy. Updates updates updates, Broken broken broken. I got a new iPhone because my 7 year old iPhone was acting up. The new phone is as bad as the old. What does that tell you?

        • Oh yes, stop talking. My older iPad refuses a lot of updates and some apps stopped working. Things like that can drive me crazy. Apps and other software applications do need too many updates too soon… And my iPhone SE is acting weird occasionally. I do love Apple products but I hate their update policy.

          • I have OS 10.13.6 on my 2012 MacBook Pro. I keep it there because of legacy 32 bit apps I use. I can’t load new music on my iPhone SE because the SE is up-to-date on it’s iOS and no longer compatible with OS 10.13. I’m having to buy a Mobile Device Manager for the office because of Apple’s changes that are causing all kinds of problems with our Evaluators’ iPads. For years, I had no problems with the iPads, but in the last six months all hell has broke loose because of Apple’s updates and changes in iCloud policies. It’s enough to make me lose my head.

            • I don’t understand why big companies like Apple treat their (loyal) customers in such (arrogant) way…

              • When Laurie’s MacBook kept having kernel panics while trying to run a security update, I knew it was a hardware problem. I called Apple Support to find out where I could send the computer for repair since the local Apple Store was closed. We have Apple Care on the MacBook. After three hours of no goes, the tech insisted I try to install Catalina before she could give me an RMA. I told her it wouldn’t work, but started the install. It panicked again, but on restart, it came up with a no access symbol over the apple on the start up screen. The tech said oops and hung up on me. I never got the RMA. I took the MacBook to a local tech who got the logic board replaced under Apple Care, but I had to pay for their labor to replace the board.

                • That’s an absolute disgrace for a company like Apple… Unfortunately, a good customer service seems to be something from the past…

                  • I’ve had really good results from the local Genius Bar, but they are not available. Apple phone support has been disastrous.

                    • Never had good experiences with phone support in general. I hate phone support. And people taking over your computer from the other side of the planet, very scary…

        • I know what you mean, Tim. Late spring, MS puts out their Patch Tuesday update. All it did was stop my HP OfficeJet printer from working, a printer, BTW, is still under warranty. HP was aware of the bad update and essentially said MS has to fix their update … which took the better part of five weeks. Rolling back my system to a previous config didn’t correct the printer issues. I use a wireless set-up for the 3 printers we have in the house. It’s like the HAL 9000 saying, “I’m sorry, Dave, I cannot do that.”

          Next problem, I was unable to access the folder with all my photos that has more than 30,000 images. Windows wanted me to use their useless and sluggish photo manager app. Managed to talk with a real tech support guy on the support forum. He said, unfortunately, I may have no choice but to use their useless, sluggish photo app. Moreover, I’d probably should perform a clean install of Windows 10, which I did. My personal desktop is working better than ever before, though it seems to have used an extra 100GB of memory on the hard drive. Good thing I have a 3TB external hard drive.

          Then my phone locked up, couldn’t get past the home screen. I read the PDF manual on my desktop that said I needed to reboot my phone. How am I going to do this when nothing works including the power button? Elsewhere in the manual, I found the reboot procedure if you’re completely locked out. I got it to restart. When I was using a BlackBerry, I never had issues with the their phone. But, with Androids, it seems things are more prone to breakdowns. My daughter Tara had an iPhone … she hated the thing. Her mom, Laurie, had a very reliable BlackBerry she used for work. When I married Laurie, Tara said, “can I have a BlackBerry too?” I said sure. Laurie said I was spoiling her daughter. There’s separate story here …

    • Thank you, Mary. Jimi runs so fast for his treat that his body can’t catch up…
      Hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday, my friend!

    • Thank you! Glad you liked the photograph. I’m always watching out because I know Jimi’s keeping an eye on me. I have to be very carful to take some extra chocolate with my espresso… 😉

  2. Glad to see you and Jimi having some fun. He looks like he is keeping a close eye on your activities, Herman. 🙂

    All of us here wishing you both a wonderful week ahead!

    • Hi Lavinia. I’m having a hard time right now; the new stronger measures and curfew, and Jimi’s keeping an eye on me so I don’t eat too much chocolate… 😉
      A new heatwave is arriving later this week, so I have to go shopping for extra ice cream!

      Wishing you all a wonderful week, my dear friend! Jimi sends his regards to all the cats on the Farm.

      • We’ve had some days in the mid 90s here, hot and dry. At least we don’t get the humidity. Confirmed cases are going up here, too, and there will be more stringent measures coming here as well. Stay well, Herman and Jimi!

    • Ja, tegenwoordig ligt hij daar veel te dromen en mijmeren, vooral als ik zelf ook boven ben. En als het warm weer is gaat hij daar ook liggen. Waarschijnlijk voelt die marmer koel aan…

  3. I bet you’re more in the calm kitty Jimi 😀 Calm: make (someone) tranquil and quiet; soothe. That’s what kitty cats do. No matter what kind of day one’s having, their love and purrs help you feel calm. You don’t smoke it or toke it, you bathe in it…much healthier 😂 xK

    • Hi Kelly. You are so right, having a cat in my home (or me living in their home) helps me to relax and feel good. Cats are so cool and easy, they know how to lead a good life. If reincarnation is for real, I want to come back as a cat…

    • Thank you for your kind comment! I’m glad Jimi adapted perfectly to his new home. Next month we’ll be together for one year.

    • Thank you so much. Glad you liked the photograph! Occasionally, when I’m having a bad day, I’m losing my head too. Chocolate helps me to get things working again… 😉

  4. He is just so cute. Look at that dear little face. I hope you and yours are doing well in the pandemic, and things aren’t getting any worse around you. Things are worse here, every day, and our administration does nothing but wish it wasn’t happening, and minimize the fact that it is. I just stay home and play in the garden, drink coffee and eat chocolate, just like you do! Be well.

    • The situation is going more and more in the wrong direction. The government is doing their best to get things back under control. Unfortunately, there’re still some idiots who ignoring the new measures…
      I’m keeping myself and my dad safe and isolated. That’s all we can do. I’m only going outside to get us chocolate and ice cream (a new heatwave arrives this week). 😉
      Thank you for the tweet. Much appreciated!

      Stay safe and healthy, my friend!

      • Oh yes, your necessary supplies before the heat wave! We have lots of those idiots here too: people crowding together at beach resorts, having parties, opening big churches. And then there is the nightmare coming about what to do about opening the schools. That appears to be a disaster about to happen, since there are no correct answers on how to do it. Be safe and well. And enjoy your ice cream. 🙂

        • Thank goodness there’s still chocolate and ice cream, yes… It helps me to get some peace of mind and stop losing my head! 😉

          • Oh no, Jimi didn’t lose his head so you can’t either. We have to all find our own kinds of peace, big and small, even tho we have to look for it harder than we used to. Small pleasures are sometime the biggest ones in times of stress. 👍

            • Thank you so much for your kind words. You are so right about finding our own kinds of peace around us. All those idiots out there should learn how to enjoy and respect all the small and beautiful things around them…

  5. Losing your head, does it happen often (LOL)? 😉

    Today is the first day of fall. Low clouds, temps in the low 60s (F scale). Heavy rain in the afternoon forecast. Also set-up most of the billpay for this month … it’s an ouch. The worst that can happen … wait, I’d better not say that – for sure I’d lose my head. 🙂

    • Hi David. Thanks for your story and experience above with tech support. It sounded like a real horror story to me. But the Hal 9000 quote made me laugh…

      I’m having a few bad days each year, days when I lose my head but afterwards I’m always feeling sad and angry because I lost control. Oh well, a strong espresso and chocolate always help me to feel better again…

    • Hi Geri. Welcome on HoB. Thank you for visiting and following the blog. Much appreciated!
      Glad you liked this post and photograph!
