Oh no, not again!

I went out to the car this morning, tossed some stuff in, shut the door and walked around to the driver’s side. At least, that’s what I meant to do…

What I actually did was have my feet fly out from under me on the ice I knew was there under a thin skim of snow. I fell straight down onto my back, and my right elbow slammed into a ridge of ice.

Yes, that’s my second bad break in 15 months, and this one will need surgery too. So I’m grounded for the winter. The only bright side is that I wasn’t carrying my scope, camera, binocs. See you in the spring, I hope!

 

ETA — that should be 26 months, not 15. I mean I’m a klutz, but not that bad.

  6. Take good care! Today is rainy here (Springfield, VT) but over ice! My wife, a visiting nurse, called a while ago to say that after three of her five scheduled visits she gave up on an icy hill and is headed home. I am still praying fo her safety, and now for your recovery as well! Thank you for posting beautiful bird pictures here, and for letting the Gunroom list know about your birding activities!
