Sure hope 2014 turns out to be a wonderful year for all of you out there in Blogger Land. A new year is supposed to bring new hope for the future. Let us hope this coming year will do just that. But, I always remember what my ole Dad always told me when I was feeling depressed. He would say, "Son, nothing is ever so bad. . . that it can't get worse!!". I will always remember that, then when things get better, I am pleasantly surprised (grin).
Last Friday I went out to load the two full garbage cans into the back of the Jeep to take them down to the road for pick-up and I had a little unexpected flight. When will I ever learn that man was never made to fly on his own (well, maybe Superman could)? You see, I was carrying two full plastic garbage cans, one in each hand, and when I took the first step to go down the porch stairs, something happened and I found myself and the cans flying through the air heading for the ground below. Here is a couple of pictures of the porch stairs:
And of course, this picture is looking down them. I fell right down the middle of them:
Thank goodness I was carrying those cans because I landed on them and they broke my fall. Even though the whole experience was traumatic to my old body, it sure could have been a lot worse.
After what seemed to me to be forever, I finally seemed to have shaken my cold and cough. Oops, I just coughed. Oh well, I guess I have almost shaken off my cough. Now, you all have a great day today, you hear?
