An Early Fall, At Least On the Blog

I pulled my back out, donkey frens. Pulled it some crazy way, prolly by hauling a box onto the forklift. It's amazing how hard it is to get anything done, with a hurt back. 

So I'm late gettin' a giveaway ready. Hopefully, by tomorrow. Somethin' rather interesting, I think, in the offing.

Here's an autumn leaf, to the delight, mayhap, of my season-rushing kindred spirits, and to the disgust of the summer fans.

I have been trying to catch a vibe about whether or not it will be an early fall, and what the winter will be like. I just now had a vision of ice and snow and rock-frozen ground and blizzards. Hmm.

    Fall can come as soon as it wants:D I sure hope your back settles down soon, I sure know how miserable that is and I sure don't miss the horrible lifting I used to do at the animal hospital, they had their own incinerator too and the top was about chin level to me, and if you can imagine 2 people trying to lift a huge deceased dog that high to get it in............UGH!

  • Beansieleigh

    Frozen ground and blizzards??!!.. What?! Did you say something?? I know I didn't hear those words, did I?.. No, no, no. I'm SURE I didn't.. Sorry to hear about your back, though. Enjoy some rest and relaxation while you can in the meantime, and I hope you're feeling better soon. ~tina

    Somehow, with DH hip replacement and all that time lost in May and June; fall is creeping up on me and I've LOST summer. It has been cool here and the monsoons have arrived; so we are in the 60's most afternoons. I've never LOST a summer before, it is truly weird.
    I am sorry about your back..and no fork lifts are not just for men (this from a gal who use to operate a D8 Cat back in the day)! Power tools, equipment, bring it on~ I AM WOMAN…lol
    Do take care lifting though…it can really come back and haunt you as you grow 'more mature'. I never knew tossing those 3-wire bales of hay would get me in my 60's ~ let alone my 70's…
    Hangeth thou in there….xxxxx bj
