In Like A Lion...

Our day around here:

~ Light snow from the first storm lasted all day long.
~ We watched another Red Sox spring training game.
~ The Red Sox won the game.
~ We worked on our 2008 tax returns.
~ I tweeted that all was going well with the taxes, which apparently jinxed it!
~ Taxes will be continued tomorrow.
~ I made my second version of a Moussaka crossed with a Shepherd’s Pie.
~ It tasted even better than the first one; there were no complaints.
~ After dinner, Chuck took the accumulated fruit and vegetable contributions from the compost bucket down to our compost pile.
~ He wanted to beat the heaviest snow.
~ Chuck slipped on pre-existing snow and ice while going down the little hill, which leads to the compost pile and fell pretty darn hard.
~ Thankfully, despite a clunk on the head, he’s fine.
~ Swift application of some Band Aids and triple antibiotic ointment staunched the bleeding from his left hand and right forearm.
~ Really, he’s fine!
~ The heavy snow of the predicted nor’easter began promptly, on schedule, just after 10:00 p.m.
~ We're ready for a good night’s rest...

I'm glad he's fine, falls can really shake you up. Do you use the bacon bandaids, the kisses bandaids or the dinosaur bandaids?

Sounds like today will be a perfect day to pamper him.

Poor Chuck!! Hope he's OK now!

Sounds like a wonderfully, quiet, romantic day for you to give him some extra TLC!!

Hi All -
Chuck really is fine and most appreciative of your solicitous concern!
We both did some slipping and sliding yesterday as we shoveled and used the snowblower to clear the results of the nor'easter! But neither one of us took a serious tumble.

Because of the ice underneath the snow, we've now got our Yak Trax near the back door. (

P.S. DMM, I had to Google to figure out your question as I had only heard of the dinosaur bandaids!
