And the Fore CAST is More of the Same

     Well, I do believe that in 4 days, this cast will be gone. Hallelujah. Hopefully something shorter and more negotiable will take its place. In the meantime, though, the news is full of such sad stories about our friends in Japan, our worries for world safety. The least I can do is to sift through all the news and bring you some that is a little more light-hearted and upbeat.
     Lots of things have been happening. You just have to know where to find them. For example, did you know that a woman in Virginia entered a courthouse with a special surprise in her bra? A marmoset clad in a diaper and a pink dress.

    "What is that?" you ask. Well, here is a photo. It is a little monkey. The woman, upon entering the courthouse, said that it was her daughter, Cara. That must have been some huge bra! The marmoset was not considered any type of a problem so she continued on with her business.

    More news that you missed? A would-be burglar, trying to enter a home through a window, found himself entangled in a clothes hamper. The noise he made trying to extricate himself caused the owner to investigate. He was able to hold him there in the hamper (Pee Yew!) until the police came. Guess you could say it "hampered" his home invasion.

     Well I wish I had not missed this one. Here I am sitting on my rump while they are having a comedy festival in Michigan. Doggone it. I miss all the fun. And the kickoff for the event was right up my alley. A rubber chicken toss! They were attempting to beat the Guiness World Record of the most people tossing rubber chickens at one time. 965 rubber chickens were tossed onto an ice rink. If verified, that would totally smash the record of 265 set in April of 2010. Now that is progress.

Thanks for the giggles. I really liked the burglar trap. I guess I'll move my hamper below the window. giggle
We're counting down with you to a smaller, easier to move around in cast.

I had a close call with a home invasion at night. It made me really nervous.

Thanks Sharon, as always, for reading and enjoying. I have a feeling that burglar was in the same position I found myself in when I fell.
Michael, that is terrible. I have never had that happen to me but it must have had a profound impact on you afterwards.

Wow. What a week.

Glad you're getting your cast off!

Oh, Jeanne. I think the cast is cutting off the oxygen to your brain! Laughter is cutting off oxygen to my brain! My nephew was in a full body cast for awhile. His dad made him a long skate board so he could move around the house.

Hey Jody. NO, this is pretty much the way I am normally. I just have more time to be able to share these pearls of wisdom with you all now. I think.
