It’s only 5:30PM and I’m exhausted and in pain. The pain is from the pressure change and physical therapy. The exhaustion, well that’s from the pain, lack of sleep and mental fatigue. I’ve already taken Aleve, and used ice to pack the painful areas. Tonight, I’ll use the arthritis salve made several months back to help relieve the pain. Enough about how I feel, let me tell you about my excitement.
Picture this; I’m home alone this afternoon. The guys are working or doing their thing and I was not expecting company. The house was nice and quiet. I had the urge to use the restroom. I entered the restroom. I pull down my britches and start to do my business. All of a sudden, there was a pounding on the window behind me. The noise startled me; I jumped…….stopped in the midst of peeing, pulled up my britches and ran in the other room for my gun. See, our bathroom window is inside a fenced in area, and the gate is locked with a chain and padlock. Before opening the blind, I aimed my 9mm, expecting a trespasser or someone trying the window to enter our home. I pulled the blind open while my finger rested on the trigger. To my surprise, there was a face plastered in the window, yes……a face……with a long beak. This mocking bird was not happy, instead of tapping his beak, he was slamming himself into the glass window.
That was my excitement this afternoon.
Tell me about your afternoon.
