Thankful Thursday

Our neighbor's pond is draining due to a sinkhole.  These buzzards were waiting for a fish snack on the edge of the pond.  



Thankful this Thursday that my daughter can finally dress herself.  With the break of her clavicle, she has been unable to lift her arm, fully, for the past four weeks.  This is what happens when you do your own stunts.    

That girl can now put on her own shirt.  


*insert the sound of angles singing* 


Her four week check-up is today and she is anxiously awaiting some good news on her progress.

    1. This pond actually holds quite a bit of catfish. Several have died here on the edge, hence the buzzards waiting for others to get stranded. Sad, but true.

    1. Tom, that mailbox is a favorite of mine! Cracked me up the first time I saw it. My grandmother used a washing machine like that.

  4. Poor daughter, poor mom! I hope all is healing well.
    Anna broke DJ's ankle when he was in 1st grade.(It was one hell of a fight. She stepped on his foot and shoved him. He got even with her by kicking her in the spine with the metal boot.) I had to carry that kid everywhere as it was winter and he was only wearing 2 socks in the boot. Ahhh, the memories.

    I hope your daughter is healing good from her broken clavicle, Is that a collarbone?

    1. Pat, it seems that it will all drain away. A sinkhole opened up nearby several months ago and the farmer was able to contain it, but now it looks like the whole pond will disappear.

  11. Tough not to be able to do the simple things. Hope she gets a good report.

  12. Aww, I bet that was really painful, and I am glad she is better. We don't have a sinkhole on our pond, but it's leaking somewhere..just haven't found where yet.

  15. Sad to see the demise of the pond but nature is well and truly alive, those birds knew where to go, didn't they? Hope your daughter's arm is on the mend. Glad my days of children and their broken limbs are over.

  19. Those sinkholes can be scary things! So happy to hear your daughter is on the mend Michelle, a fractured clavicle would be painful. I'm getting around on a fractured knee at the moment, not fun 😃

  20. Hood news about the "daughter of the house!"
    And isn't that quote THE TRUTH . . .

  21. It's probably a colloquial term where you live to call those birds buzzards, but they are in fact Turkey Vultures.
