Yesterday I called 911, and the ambulance hauled me off to the emergency room. There they took X-rays, a cat scan, and gave me some pain medication.  I have a cracked rib. The pain pills seem to be working fairly well, which is why I'm back at the computer. The pain pills do make me sleepy, though.

My thanks to all of you who sent get well wishes.
And Pegi, I wouldn't dream of depriving you of your humor.  See below.

Okay, here is the 'plus'.  If by now you haven't figured out that I like birds, you have not been paying attention--

Who knocked?

 Someday I'll figure out how to fly with my feet down.

 You won't believe what that guy said to me – – "Go lay an egg!"

 Okay, I've had my shower, where is my bath towel?

 I just all tuckered out.

 If one can, and three can, then Toucan.

 It's about time; I hungry.

 Hey, kid, how about you and me hitting the town tonight!

 Here you go, Pegi --


A  priest is driving down to New York and gets stopped for speeding in Connecticut. The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest's breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car He says, "Sir, have you been drinking?"  "Just water," says the priest. The trooper says, "Then why do I smell wine?"  The priest looks at the bottle and says, "Good Lord! He's done it  again!"


  1. Ack! Cracked ribs HURT! Glad you're back home, though, and that it's not more serious.

    My dog looks like that sleeping gosling today!

  2. I'm very glad they took good care of you. Heal well, friend.

    That owl is hoping for a snowy Christmas.

  3. So glad to see you back at the keyboard!
    Hoping for swift, sure healing of that rib. Those are no fun at all!
