Friends, Romans, fans of Middle Earth. Lend me your thumb! Okay. It’s a bad start. I get it. Gotta try and turn this thing around real quick.
Well fans of Middle Earth and the few who are somewhat clueless in the ways of Hobbits. Welcome! So glad you dropped in on me again. Thanks a bunch.
So I happen to be one of those people who has a poor memory. Or maybe it’s just the fact that I don’t take the required time to remember what I should be remembering. Hmmm. Maybe I’m just getting old. Although I feel that I’ve been this way for quite some time. Guess I’ve been getting old for a while. Yeah. Yeah so what am I getting at.
So in the fall the tradition is to go out to the local orchard and pick up a pumpkin and put it on the front porch. You know in the spirit of the fall harvest and all. So we do that and then we wind up leaving the pumpkin out there until it’s practically disintegrated. So like I was saying I usually forget about the pumpkin. The reality is I forget because I usually don’t come into our house through the front door. I always come in through the garage door. I have know idea what’s on the front porch. I’m never there. So like the day before Christmas I just happen to walk up the front steps through our front door and I notice the pumpkin is still there…..practically disintegrated. I get inside the house and tell Terence to, ” Get rid of the pumpkin this week!”
After I made that statement I forgot about it. Me not really needing to spend another nanosecond remembering about that damn pumpkin. Terence will take care of it……
…….and some things that should not have been forgotten were lost.
Look what I found Saturday! I was wondering why we had all those fruit flies out on the front porch! TERENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh yeah. Went to the doctor for the first time since my thumb surgery. He says its not doing too bad. He put two pins in it to hold it together. Okay I’m going to show you a picture of it so just skip it if you want.
I go back in three weeks to have him pull the pins. Hopefully everything turns out alright. Its pretty stiff though. I was afraid to move it after he took off the original shroud from the surgery. I have a hard cast on it now so if I don’t have to work in the city next week I might be able to get something done at the house with some help. We shall see.
On another note we hit the seventy degree mark the other day for all you climentologists out there.(Not so sure of the spelling.) It rained the other night and the Editor ran over a frog. She actually saw a bunch of them. Hard to believe. Unfortunately it really is pretty easy to run over a frog. What happens is you see this thing hopping across the road and it doesn’t look right. Like why is a frog in the middle of the road and not in a pond??? By the time all of that registers it’s too late. Tis true.
Well the hour is later than I thought and I hope to have something to show you all next weekend from a construction point of view.
Enjoy your work week!
Ps: Some additional items for the record.
There are about 8 million shops on Beacon’s Main street. Who knew? Quite a nice excursion we had.
This thing is huge. Probably 10′ x 25′
