Sunny day...most days here are sunny.
Took a trip to the cabin.
Ran several rounds thru a new semi auto
Finished doing the winter tighten up
Built a fire in the pit
Fire season is over
It was nice
Cold on the back
Warmth on the front
Sittin' there, staring blankly at the flickering flames, mesmerized
Not a thought in my head
I may have sipped coffee
I may have drooled

Got back home
Ate veggie something
Stocking cap on, goin' walking
Our 'walk' is a lively pace
Three mile round trip to the lake and back
A mile to the lake my foot didn't make it over a little rise in the sidewalk
Goin' down
Unlike the woods, there is no give in concrete
Hands, wrists, shoulder, knee
My freaking knee...the bad one.
My lady is shrieking
Heh, I have zero grace
Minus zero when falling
Musta looked horrific
'Baby, I'm the one that should be shrieking'
'Now, be a dear, and fetch those prescription sunglasses out there in the street'
I hobble home
Laid up
I...hate...being laid up

Gonna walk it off

Like a wounded yak

Ouch ! Falling on hard concrete sucks. Not that there’s any soft concrete. 😏
Hope you have something to take the edge off some 🥴

Although - the postage you paid is rubbing me a little, I feel bad for
the expense; can I at least offer to return the shopping bags?
Heh, my Wyoming bud has great wit about him.
I told him, yeah, I want them back, folded like flags.

Got a package the other day.
Two half gallon bags of tightly tri-corner folded shopping bags.

I had to use (unfold) one today
In the distance, feint notes of a bugle rang out

Bet it took him a few tries to get it right

Sorry you fell Gary, but I'm glad you feel better
Yeah, tempted to get back to walking to the lake and back.
This is where I get into trouble.
Over stress my little injury and it lingers.
Did this at the cabin, but I had to.
Here, gonna sneak up on walking
Pickle ball can wait....but I get impatient

Yes, just sneak up on it gently but regularly.
You'll be pickling those balls in no time!

Geez, I gotta find another sport
Gettin' ribbed by my cronies across the world....even my best bud in Wyoming
I jus' can't find a hand ball opponent
And the pickleballers don't cotton to my slams all that much

@Gary, I was not going to read that whole thing, but skimmed over all and with the pics, I see BagMan took your birdhouse APART to spray it with linseed oil.

I held my breath until I saw it all turned out so well!

He's very talented....maybe he can turn it into a coo-coo clock? :giggle:

BTW, I'm glad you shared this. I love that little house.

Actually he sucked it into the wood.
It didn't fit his vacuum chamber, so took it apart and vacuumed the pieces...sheeeesh....he's amazing
