I can't believe it's been almost three weeks ago that our sweet Doberman puppy (who is the size of a small horse and gets distracted often and yanks on his leash) pulled Rick down onto the concrete, breaking Rick's kneecap into two pieces. Thankfully, the doc has just said a few days ago he is good to go and can walk normally, just not bending his knee for several weeks after the surgery was completed to correct the break.
It's been a long haul, but thank God for wonderful friends who helped by feeding us, helping with stuff at the store and so much more. A major biggie was that our friends Kenny and April have taken on keeping Doc for a while to help avoid any mishaps. Doc and their dog are getting along famously, I'm told.
Because of the craziness of the past few weeks, I'm going to share some of the jokes that came in Tuesday's mail from the American Legion Post 13:
• I thought my neighbors were nice, generous people. Then they put a password on their Wi-Fi.
• A husband and wife were driving through Louisiana. As they approached Natchitoches, they started arguing about how to pronounce the name of the city. They bickered back and forth until they stopped for lunch. At the counter, the husband asked the cashier, "Could you settle an argument for us? Would you pronounce where we are very slowly?" She leaned forward and said, "Burr-gerr Kiiiing."
• A doctor asks his patient, "How much exercise would you say you skip each week?
• A pickpocket was in court for petit theft. The judge declared, "Sir, you are hereby fined $100." The lawyer stood up and said, "Your honor, my client only has $75 on him at this time. If you'd allow him a few minutes in the crowd…."
