I apologize for us not being on here yesterday but…..I have been suffering with severe back pain since we took the truck to the garage to get it fixed. I pulled a bonehead stunt. On the way out I decided to check the mailbox. I was driving the truck and keep in mind, it is a four-wheel drive and does stand a little higher than your normal truck. Anyway, I rolled the window down to check the mail. The wind picked up and blew the mail out of my hands. So I slide out of the truck to get the mail. When I went to get back in, I guess my pup, Kade decided he wanted to drive instead of me. I climbed in and tried to push his fat rump over. Apparently I hadn’t shut the door good, while is I was pushing him over, the door flew wide open. Guess who goes falling out the door? You got it, ME! I fell out the truck. Half of me landed in gravel, the other half on the asphalt. I thought I was dead. Oh, my aching back, I have never felt such pain since I had surgery. Lord M, Jacob and Joseph came running. They thought I had killed myself. When I finally got up, I couldn’t stand up straight to save me. Jacob ran back to the house and got my back brace and I put it on. I managed to climb back up in that truck and give Kade a good fussing too. Then down the road we went. We did get the truck to the garage. The guys threw a fit with me still wanting to drive it. I told them, “I be damned if a truck and little fuzz ball is going to beat me.” I was in torture the whole way there and when I jumped out at the garage I thought I was going to die.
So I have been nursing a horrible back since then. Yesterday, I just couldn’t do it anymore. I soak in the bathtub, put on the heating pads, and took my meds. Today it is much better, so I think I am going to live now or at least walk anyway. The good news my back is better but the truck still ain’t fixed. I was in a hurry to get it fixed because we were suppose to have a huge winter storm hit. Thankfully, somebody up there likes me, because it just barely missed us. If they only like me as far as the truck goes, I would be in great shape. I didn’t know it when I took the truck down there, they have fired all their mechanics except for one. So there is no telling when we will get the truck back. I would pick it up and take it some place else but that is sort of hard to do now. I got angry Thursday because I couldn’t get an answer out of them about the truck. So I hobbled down to the garage and the old boy told me, “I’m working on it. I have just had this come in and then that come in.” Then he pointed over to the corner and there was my transfer case just laying there. I just thought to myself, boy am I screwed now. I figure in the meantime if we get a heavy snow, I am going to get a dog sled and attach Kade to it and off we go. That would be sight. A little Pomeranian pulling a dog sled around, ha!
But that is not really why I wanted to talk to you, well it was partly. I wanted to apologize for not being on here and to tell you, we are going to try something new again. I have always known we have quite a few Solitary witches down under. I had one write and ask if we could start giving them more information. So we are going to give it a whirl. As far as being familiar with their Sabbats, I am honest, I am not. I have to look at a calendar. I haven’t figured out how we are going to do their daily almanacs yet but we are going to give it a trial run this morning. You will also see two new poems at the start of each daily post when one of their Sabbats are coming up. So you don’t think I head my head really hard when I feel out of the truck, I figured I might ought to let you know what is going on. I am hoping there will be two sets of almanacs one of us, one for them. I will designate which one is which. Then the horoscopes I don’t know how far in the future I will have to go to get the right day for them but what the heck. Just look at it this way, everybody up here will know their horoscopes three days in advance(I hope they ain’t that far ahead of us). Then I stop to think about it, everything is going to double.
Anyway, I haven’t knocked myself silly, you just now know what we are getting ready to try. I hope you enjoy it and for y’all down under, I hope we get it right. Give us a few minutes and we will be back shortly. Till then…
