Successful Silent Auction For AAR Then A Slip For Me

Saturday nite was wonderful. The booksigning and silent auction at Heartfield Manor for Animal Action Rescue was great. We raised a lot of moola for some super folks. Thanks to Michelle of Expressions Photography who came and took photos. I'll have them next week to share with you. To Chef Phil Scales for some upgraded dog treats, Larry Joe Hall for music to make you move, and my friend Sandra for letting us use her lovely bed and breakfast.  The Corvette made the run and was parked outside flashing everyone who entered. Had an offer to buy the vette, but lets get real, can't part with my soul mate. But thanks for the thought.  NY Basset Hound Rescue has a 1968 red corvette for auction, may need to check that out. Wowie, a beaut of a car.

Now for my latest news and why I may be buying a new kitchen floor. I slipped on dog pee (oh, yes, dog pee, but sometimes a dog just has to go) and landed on my butt, dislocating my left shoulder. While waiting in the ER for three hours to have it popped back in I imagined a new floor, a cushy vinyl rather than the slick laminate faux wood floor I have to cushion just such a blow. Right now if there is any water on this floor you will hydroplane across it. Then this morning just as I was feeling fit from the blow on Tuesday, I stretched and darn if the shoulder didn't go out again. Another trip to the ER, same procedure. Tomorrow I go to the doctor to see how to behave with my new sling. Any one have a suggestion on what type of floor - other than carpet - will not be slippery?

Everyone have a great 4th. Check back next week for some photos of our great charity event for Animal Action Rescue.

Widow Lesson Learned: It is more fun to sit on your butt signing books than to fall on your butt and land in the ER.

So glad the auction went well. Can't wait to see all the photos!

Hope you are feeling better ASAP. That hurt me just reading about it!
