Probably looked funny to other people

Beaned myself on a low hanging branch while mowing the lawn today. I mean thigh-thick branch to the skull, head over heals Three-Stooges style crashing to the ground. I was going to joke that I was thinking of ways to publicize that writing contest when I should have been concentrating on the job at hand, but when the stars and little birdies cleared I remembered I'd been thinking at the time about my little nephew, who's having an operation on his heart in the morning. Made me feel guilty that I whined over a little gash and goose egg, although that doesn't mean I won't turn it into a column.

I should apologize to Emily for all the curse words I used when she poured alcohol on my head.

(Oh, don't forget to vote today in the writing contest:  http://www.soyouthinkyoucanwrite.com/manuscripts/coming-attractions/ )

Think of me lying, moaning in agony, in a hospital cot ... which never happened, but picture that anyway, and spread the word about that vote. :-)

I have a gash and a goose egg -- pretty much my typical day at home.

Much appreciated! I'm sure I'll need all the votes I can get.

This particular goose egg/gash/scrape/bruise was a bit more serious than my usual, but in the end anything I survive is column material.

Prayers for your nephew, and an ice cube for your sore* noggin. :-)

Sore, not sour. Although you are very probably sour about the soreness. LOL

Not as sour as you'd think ... just another day in home maintenance paradise. Plenty sore, though.

No, it didn't leave me -- the pain stayed right there! :-)
