The view from my perch on the mountain

THE BOSS!

Lessons Learned:

That itty bitty chair THE BOSS uses as a step stool to reach the stuff in the cabinets is an accident waiting to happen!

Said itty bitty chair decided to depart from under my feet this afternoon and I really triggered my back this time!

I blame this on THE BOSS because she was in the same room at the time and was negligent in supervising my actions. (I hope she doesn’t read this)

The meds are kicking in nicely and I will survive .

Man am I ever glad my new La-Z-Boy was delivered a week ago! I’ll be stuck in it for the near future……..in a drug induced haze.

Now where is my little bell? I need it to ring for ice cream and some comic books.

NURSE! NURSE!

Oh there you are. It’s about time.

Wait…..what are you going to do with that skillet?

KABONG!

BANG!

BOOM!

OW!!!!!

Oh look at all the little burdies……..fireworks, too!

Seed pods in our maple waiting to join the billion or so already carpeting the lawn. When I was a kid we called these thing whirlybirds because of the spinning motion when they fall through the air. Those on the ground will really be spinning tomorrow when I run them over with the Dandelion Destroyer!
