Beating Yourself Up

BUDDY:  We're just going to do a fast post today.  We'll show my handsome profile first, before the scary photo.

CYNDI:  Our Tuesday post Trip Fly Crash was a PSA (Public Service Announcement) to slow down when the phone rings.  Jan tends to rush because if it's someone from out of our small toll-free area, she can't afford to call them back. 

RUSTY:  But she won't be rushing any more.  People will just have to learn to leave a message and call her back if she doesn't answer.

PERCY:  Because this is Jan's face this morning, three days after the failed flight and crash landing on Monday evening. 

CAMERON:  She is so thankful because she just barely missed hitting her eyeball on the corner of the TV stand and we don't even want to think about that.

MERCI:  We dogs needed food so she had to got out in public Tuesday and then to a meeting, but she has been hiding out and resting since.

MICAH:  She's a bit excited today.  She is finally able to bend her leg enough to get her right sock off and, hopefully, raise the leg enough to get a shower. 

MARCUS:  We are totally not responsible!  We post this as a reminder that rushing can have painful consequences ... um, especially when you're old.  So slow down and let us youngsters be the ones to scurry.

SAM:  And in the theme of the post, we decided to include one of the cutest cat fights we've seen.  We wonder if this cat has figured out he's actually trying to beat up on himself.  Enjoy.

  27. That orange cat made us laugh! But not Jan's black eyes and hurty leg. That does NOT sound like fun at all. Please feel better soon, Miss Jan!

  28. Just checking in! Hope things are "looking" better for you this week, Jan!

  29. Oh my goodness! Ouch! Hope you heal very fast, Jan.

  30. Ya know, Goth people PAY to have eyes like that. Mebbe Mom could arrange it fer green papers...

  31. Wow... Rushing did my toe in too. Time to slow down and think shalom... (Peace)
    Thank goodness you didn't hit your eyes. Still, have you had your eyes checked? Make sure you are not seeing any odd flashing or a small black dot in either eye that doesn't go away. If you bruised you face up that bad... possible to tear the retina or jar your retina lose in one of your eyes... (Especially for near-sighted folks like me.) Please get your eyes checked too. Purrz and prayers, Katie.

  32. OH JAN!! I am so so so sorry this has happened. I hate to ask you this now, but did you just send me an email?


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
