  1. Ugh, what a nasty aftermath of the fall on ice. I found your blog around three corners, thanks for posting the story about the sac lunches, I had never heard it before.

    I also just shared the church bloopers, they were hillarious!

    Hope your bones will heal cause quilting will be a whole lot easier with two hands! I know there are people who paint with their feet or mouth, but I'm not sure that would work for quilting...

    Get well!

    Cheers,
    Christine

  6. HI Michele,

    I can see that your sense of fun hasn't deserted you during this arm adventure.

    I love the name of your quilt- I have been screwed - You would have to make sure to use purple and green in it! LOL

    They say Laughter is the best medicine- the Church bulletin comments were pretty funny.

    Hope that someone will bring you other things that make you laugh-
    perhaps some screwball comedies :O)

    Feel better dear friend
    Hope that you are not too uncomfortable.

    Warmest regards,
    Anna

  7. I love your sense of humor, you remind me, to remind myself, to keep mine;) I am glad the surgery went well and hopefully the healing goes well. I needed a laugh. Have been watching the news and hoping to hear of more rescues from the debris. Our governor said on the news, if everyone in RI gave a dollar, that is a million dollars, so you can imagine if the bigger states did that too.

  9. My husband has 14 screws and 2 titanium plates holding his tibial plateau and knee together after a woman pulled out in front of his motorcycle.

    We were so lucky that the surgeon went to such lengths to save his leg!

    Amazing what a good doctor can do to heal you! Get well soon!

  10. If you managed to blow out a power grid in Juneau, we best not let you have major surgery in someplace like DC--they'll think you're a terrorist!

  11. Oh I hope you are well soon and can get back to quilting. Hugs

  12. I knew you were "fully charged" but to take out the whole city of Juneau to prove it was a bit much. ;- )

    Glad there was a surgeon on staff who could give you such good treatment. What a mess that fall made of your arm! Ick! You're in my prayers. And now I think I'll steal those church bulletins to pass along to my SIL. I hadn't seen that batch; they're a hoot!

  13. Yes, if we don't laugh, we'll cry and laughter helps us heal a WHOLE lot faster.

    Glad your surgeon was skilled ... now comes the healing and recovery ... YES!

    HUGS from TN
