I was sitting here at my computer this morning looking out the window (I am lucky enough to have a room with a view-ha!) watching my dogs play, the temp at a wonderful 70 degrees with a slight breeze when my eye caught sight of an old forgotten bird feeder. AND...since no one was here to watch me or STOP me from doing anything stupid, I decided to go OUTSIDE. That wonderful place that I never go to unless it's to the Dr.I gathered up my courage and lo and behold I had several bags of bird seed on my porch. The plot thickens...After many misguided attemps I manage to get all my equip together and struggle (I do mean struggle) out the back. The very first thing that happened, and should have sent me back into the safety of the house, was that my two outside pooches were so excited to see me they almost knocked me down. I manage to get to a row of feeders and begin my task. I did'nt plan on the grass being wet ( we forget these things when we're inside all the time) and as I filled my first feeder with thistle ( a tiny black seed) I spilled most of it and it went into my shoe. I still plugged on with thistle rubbing all between my toes and driving me crazy. I did manage to fill most of them and then decided to get my pooches some fresh water from the hydrant. As I approached it a huge bull frog jumped from out of nowhere, and since he caught me unaware and in this instant I know he was a snake, I jumped back losing my footing and one went right into the dogs drinking bucket. At least it was the foot with all the thistle and washed it off-ha! To keep myself from further injury I grabbed for the door step and rammed my hand into a loose nail. I fianlly made it back to the safety of the house! Had to take more pain meds and considered myself lucky that nothing else happened. I doubt very seriously if I will do something like this again, but since I did not end up in the ER or broken my neck, I can say it was definitely an ADVENTURE, and when you're in chronic pain all the time, what more could you ask for -Ha! Just thought I would share this with you. Love and hugs to all my friends Dale
