I’m really good at employing unusual methods to accomplish the task at hand…
When I got up this morning it wasn’t raining, but grey and heavy clouds. I hustled around and loaded up my pickup again and I hossed the washer and dryer that we had in one of the little barns onto the trailer and Bro and I headed to town and got that load off. When we got back to the plantation I remembered to check the rain gauge.
The falling on the knee again? About 10:30 p.m. Carol said did you hear the weatherman saying we could get to 35 F. tonite? Nope, didn’t hear it… Well, says she, you’d better get the plants in off the porch… So I told Bro if you will stand at the door I’ll hand them in to you and we both won’t have to get wet. So I would step out on the deck, grab a plant or two, pour the excess water off them and stepped in and handed them to Bro, turned and went back out and grabbed more and repeated the process. Some of our plants are large and heavy and I was tiring out and trying to hurry because I was getting wet. I stepped out, barefoot, and hit wet deck just right, did a whoopti – into a single legged split… bunged my big toe, knocked of my rhinestone off my toe nail and then landed on THE knee… but I didn’t hit nearly as hard as last time and my toe is sorer than my knee… Thank goodness. So you don’t need to worry about any bones.
And the reference to my Ethiopian Ingenuity… Found this photo while looking for THERE photos --- Yep, that’s a bungee strap. I was running errands and got tired of hikin’ my drawers up and all I had in my pick up was a bungee cord. It worked.
I’ll get back to Bartlesville (THERE) on the next post.
