Yeppers, we have our electric back again and BOY did we missed all you guys. It was a quick storm but very powerful. The lightening hit lots of transformers and there were lots of wires and trees down. One night, it was way to HOT inside that Mom and I slept out on the front porch on the porch swing. Now......you hafta understand that my Moms idea of ruffin it is with the A/C on low, so this was quite out of her comfort zone!! bol She admits that it was kinda fun and I was there to fight off the possums, skunks and what not!! We feel so outta the loop: Mom was going bonkers, that she re-wrote a verse from one of her favorite childhood shows~~Gilligan's Island, so sing right along OK??
So this is the tale of us storm survivors,
And what we had to do fur a short, short time.
We had to make the best of things,
It was an uphill climb.
The mom and her Jazzi too
Did their very best,
To make the others comf'terble
In their hot, hot home.
No phone, no lights, no puter,
Not a single luxury
Like Robinson Crusoe
It was primitive as can be.
So join us as we are back my friends,
You're sure to get a smile,
From 6 peeps and 2 dawgs
Here at Jazzi's World!BOL, I told her NOT to quit her day job!!
I must tell you though that Limping Antelope is back again and she had nother incident yesterday. You see, she has a ceiling fan over their bed but the string is short and she has to stand on the water bed to reach the string and usually never has a problem. (The string was short, cuz....well.....she is a great procrastinator!!) Well... yesterday that wasn't the case. Addy and I experienced the whole thing right before our very paws. She stood on the water bed, pulled the string and was getting back off. One foot was on the floor and the other one was going all wacky~~Addy and I looked at each other, like Oh no, here she goes~~and yep she went!! She said she didn't want to sprain that ankle AGAIN, so she decided just to take the fall on the floor which wasn't really too far down anyways. She fell and it all worked out ok cept for the fact that the fall made her head fall back and whack her head on the radiator!! She felt a BIG indent and there was blood!! Me and Addy are shocked by this point, what's she gonna do. She just paced and mumbled, Oh, I don't have time for this today bla bla bla. She put us outside and went to the neighbors to see if she could bandage it up or have to go to the DR. Michelle is like, uhhh, yah, you are going to have to go to the Dr's. She was still mumbling right out that door, bol ~~~ and sorry Mom, but all we both could do was snicker to each other!!
Long story short, she has a 3 inch gash on the left back side of her head, she got about 4 shots in the head and a bunch of staples in it to hold her head back together again. Luckily she didn't even get a headache and it didn't knock her out either and NO....we all thought that maybe it would knock some sense back into her but she says Nope, probably not BOL I sure hated to ask the question: Which would have been smarter: the sprained ankle or the gash in the head?? But I can proudly say now, that the string is longer and she can now reach it without getting on the bed!!
We have so much that has happened over these few days, I got a pressie in the mail, I met new friends and we will get to that and try to get to your blogs today. Just wanted to let you know that we are OK and back again.
