    I almost made an appointment with the Lord

    I have been hesitant to post this. Getting old and playing hard I have a had time excepting that I am just not as quick on my feet as I once was. While hunting last Saturday and moving rather quickly through the under brush trying to make a move on a large bird I tripped straight down on a stick sticking straight up about 2'. Just lucky it had a blunt end. If I did this on the farm in Lousia it would have been over. The beavers don't leave blunt ends. So just very lucky the stick was partly rotted. Still haven't told the wife , just don't need to upset her.

    Sorry for the soft porn
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Ouch! Had a buddy show me a similar bruise recently, a lot blacker from a kickback in the side of his stomach. Could see the imprint of the corner of the board even.

    "haven't told the wife" ????? And it's been four days!?!?
    Not sure how you can manage that. (a) I can't keep a secret from mine. Makes christmas and birthdays a challenge. and (b) she'd see it instantly the first time I stepped out of the shower or getting changed for bed.

    Oh well, glad you're okay. We can't spend our days wrapped in cotton batting, so keep on enjoying those outdoors.

    Ouch, sure hope that doesn't spread to your painting arm. I'm looking forward to that turkey paint.

    I'll bet there was a big old tom sitting in a tree just laughing his butt off at you when that happened....his carefully placed man trap worked exactly as planned!

    You don't need an appointment with the LORD, He accepts walk-ins.
