I tell ya, I'm dangerous! But only to myself!
More on that in a minute.
Sunday, I went to Muskegon to see my Mom. Her birthday is this month. She always has a little list of things she wants me to do. She lost her internet, some file got corrupted, so I reinstalled the software for that, cut her hair, then took her out to Red Lobster, for lunch. Yummy as always! Of course I had the Salmon New Orleans, and Mom had the Blackened Catfish and a Strip Sirloin Steak. Then it was over to the VFW, for cocktails and pull tabs. It was a nice day.
Monday, I stocked the motor home for our next trip, and got the car caddy hooked up to save us time on Saturday, as we are leaving right after work.
Also I decide to try and get rid of the rabbits in the yard.
First some history.
Our back yard is surrounded with evergreens.
And woven thru those is a 3 ft. high fence of chicken wire.
This is to keep the rabbits out, mainly in the winter,
because they'll eat bushes down to the ground.
We got a rabbit in the yard this spring. I got it out and patched the hole, but apparently she had a litter, during the time she was in the yard. Now there are little rabbits all over. And of course with the chicken wire, they can't get out. Not that they would, my yard is a gourmet smorgasbord!
So I decide I would chase them out. I'd put chicken wire up around a section at a time and corral them. Then open a section of perimeter fence, and flush them out of the yard.
Sounds easy, right? ya, uh huh.
Well, I used a couple of
canes to beat the bushes and plants
to scare the little bugger the direction
I wanted him to go.
But they're still quite small and
He would not go out the opening.
And while I was poking the bushes,
One of the canes got stuck,
and I pulled, and WHAM!
Right into my eye!
Thought I poked it right out!
But after a minute,
I realized I could still see.
It hurt, but I could see.
I'd be fine.
Later that evening
I realized my eye was red,
This morning, it looks worse.
So maybe a trip to the Doctor is in order.
I swear, every time I go out
in the yard, I injury myself somewhere!
And no, I didn't get the f#%*ing Rabbit!
Saw the Doc, he said it was a hemotoma. Which basically is broken blood vessels. I should heal fine in a week or so. He gave me a prescription for an antibiotic in case there was a surface scratch and possible infection.
