Fractured Paw Award Returns

Taylor:  I'm feeling a bit upside down discombootalated.  Could you explain that again?

Merci:  I think you mean discombobulated, bit it makes perfect sense, if you think about it.

Percy:  Yes, We had Jan make this award for our blog back in 2014.  She didn't know we intended to present it to her.  The time has come to bring this award out of retirement.

Marcus:  And you're going to present it to her again?  Her birthday is coming up later this month.  Couldn't we give her flowers instead?

Cyndi:  We could if we had some cash.  This won't cost us anything.

Taylor:  I still don't understand why we would give her a klutz award.

Micah:  To reward her for all those exciting flights and crash landings she's become famous for, not to mention extra chuckles such as the underhanded ball playing that resulted in Jan's finger colliding with Marcus's teeth.

Rusty:  I agree she's is a good source for our humor material.  She does deserve recognition for creative accidents.

Taylor:  What did she do this time?

Micah:  Surely you heard her scream and saw her almost go headfirst down the porch steps Wednesday?

Taylor:  The neighborhood probably heard her,  But what caused that?

Marcus:  It was't me!  I had nothing to do with it!  I wasn't even outside at the time.

Rusty:  We know that, Marcus.  But I'm curious too.  What happened?

Cyndi:  I saw it from the window.  Jan grabbed the railing as she bopped down the steps.

Taylor:  So?

Merci:  So Jan didn't just grab the railing;  she grabbed a wasp on the railing and it stung her finger - twice!

Percy:  Evidently, not only was the pain worse than when she was stung in the arm last year while she was trimming bushes, but when the pain eased, the fingers on that hand itched so fiercely, she couldn't stop scratching for quite a while.

Rusty:  I must have been napping then.  I only knew about the angry wasp that went after her when she tried to let it outside and she whacked it head-on with the glass door.

Taylor:  I think we should present the award to the poor wasps instead of Jan.

Cyndi:  What? Why?

Taylor:  When the branch snapped last year, Jan accidentally hit one so hard with her arm she killed it, though not before it stung her.  For all we know the one on the railing was crushed, even though it managed to sting her twice.  And she cold-cocked another with a door.   Which do you think deserves the award the most - Jan, or the wasps?

This award was first presented to Jan in Fractured Paw Award.  And subsequently in Fractured Musings and two other posts. 


  1. Oh, your poor Miss Jan. Those wasp stings are the worst.
    I htink *she* needs the aard cause those wasps were naughty and stung her. They did not think about the fact thatshe had plenty of other things to deal with already...

    POTP to the fractured (Well, stung...) paw.

  2. Thanks for your kind words Ms. Jan.

  3. Hari OM
    Good grief,you are jolly lucky that Jan is still around to feed you all - there could be a tad more sim-paw-thee coming from you as you present this award! I shall send POPT vibes through the etherways for Jan - and hugs wags whiskeries to you all, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Um, and I need to take up tai chi, or yoga to get our sense of balance back! We don't bounce like we once did...or did that have something to do with alcohol consumption back in the day? Well, I can't remember...LOL!

  5. Oh poor Jan! Purrhaps she needs to be wrapped in bubble wrap?

  6. Hmmmm... I'm now wondering if I should congratulate Jan on winning such a prestigious award or send her a get well card!

  7. Y'all are supposed to be keeping your eyes on Jan! Hugs from all of us!

  8. Oh, Jan, you poor thing!!! Wasps need to go on vacation at this time of year. But are you okay? HEAD FIRST DOWN STEPS???? Our mama would still be lying there....

    1. Oh, no - almost! Close call but the reason Jan did not fall is because she was gripping the railing so tightly while getting stung.

  9. Ouch! Poor Jan. How nice of you to give her an award though.

  10. Oh my! My ghostwriter says she has never been stung that many times, even when she stepped right on a yellowjacket nest. Hope your Jan feels better soon.

  11. Oh My CoD! Poor Jan! And I thought my Mom was a klutz...Purrhaps they are related...nd it is a genetic thing....
    Purrs to you guys and Healing Purrs to Jan

  16. You all have the most interesting conversations. Poor, sweet Jan and her wasp encounters, don't you Funny Farmers at least feel a little bit sorry for her? :) Those wasps stings hurt big-time. We hope the pain of that sting goes away very soon. Hugs and nose kisses and all of you watch out for those wasps.

  17. Oh No, poor Jan. Mommy be deathly 'lergic to wasps, so we totally feel fur Jan. Phooey on the dead wasps. We think the only good one is a dead one. We're sendin' hugs and purrayers fur Jan.
