It Takes Two

Barely A Click

A cardinal makes a sound like "click." I didn't even know this little guy was there because he was really quiet. 

It was a nothing day.  Went to my friend Linda's backyard super early to catch this guy but didn't stay log.  I'm going back later in the week.  Other than that, ordered and picked up my groceries.  For the second time at the store this week I forgot the toilet paper.

I'll be off early in the morning back to the retinal specialist. I'm having a few problems with the eye I had retinal laser surgery last week.  It was to repair a tear on my retina but I'm experiencing some sensations he didn't tell me to expect.  It's probably nothing but if there's anything I don't want to mess with it's my eyesight.  I wish I didn't have to go to their northwest office (which of course means nothing to anyone reading this).  Suffice to say, I couldn't drive any further from my house to get there and still be in the city of Tucson.

Thanks for all of the support on my blip of JR and of our harrowing experience.  My mom doesn't remember what happened but it has definitely affected her in ways too difficult to describe.

Don't forget that this upcoming Wednesday is Happy Hump Day and the tag will be #HHD5

The teacher gave her 5th grade class an assignment: Get their parents to tell them a story w/a moral at the end of it. The next day, the kids came back &, one by one, began to tell their stories.

There were all the regular types of stuff: Spilled milk & pennies saved. But then the teacher realized, much to her dismay, that only Janie was left.

“Janie, do you have a story to share?”

“Yes, ma’am. My daddy told me a story about my Mommy. She was a Marine pilot in Desert Storm, & her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory, & all she had was a flask of whiskey, a pistol, & a survival knife.

She drank the whiskey on the way down so the bottle wouldn’t break, & then she parachuted right into the middle of 20 Iraqi troops. She shot 15 of them w/the pistol, until she ran out of bullets, killed 4 more w/the knife, till the blade broke, & then she killed the last Iraqi w/her bare hands.”

“Good Heavens,” said the horrified teacher. “What did your Daddy tell you was the moral to this horrible story?”

“Don’t f*** with Mommy when she’s been drinking.”
