Whomp rattle rattle. If you've been to my house you'll recognize that noise. Even the neighbours have commented. It's the front door closing. You had to whomp it to get it to close and then the single pane sidelights on either side would rattle like glasses in the cupboard during an earthquake. The rattle part was worsened after the barbeque rolled through one of the sidelights in a windstorm.
Look closely: the two didn't even match, a patch job to get us by. A shame for one who used to work in the glass business. Such is life for the shoemaker's children, sporting sole worn boots.

Hardly a red meat eating household anymore, one day we decided to satiate our occasional meaty needs.

He threw the grocery bags into the back of the truck and this is what arrived home:
Still packed in the plastic grocery bag with handles neatly tied together, all we can figure is that an eagle or a crow dived bombed the bag and got what was at the very top. Very clean job, don't you think?
Thank you for the suggestions regarding adaptive knitting. With the help of some topical anti-inflammatory gel, I'm able to knit a half dozen shawl or baby blankie rows at a time - enough to satisfy the urge. Strange though, one of the side effects of a cream applied to the thumb, is an upset stomach. The body is a funny thing.
