Cute. They can't not be at two.

And then, without warning, they turn into teenagers.

Hello everybody.

Bloody hell, I was weeks behind at Old Spork and now I have two sites to catch up on. Thankfully I have some time off.

It almost seems too cliché to be true, but my grandma slipped on the ice this morning while getting her morning paper and broke her leg. She was stuck there in the cold for a half hour because nobody could hear her. She's in the hospital now. I'm about to head over there to see her.

oh god Sparby--I'm so sorry to hear that.

A similar thing happened to my grandma when she was staying with us. Fortunately our dog was able to get her help and protected her until the paramedics came. (no lie--that was an awesome dog)

What a journey.
sorry to hear that. Hope she gets better soon.

What a journey.

sorry, matt. send her my best wishes. but... better the leg than the hip. legs heal faster and better, with fewer long-term issues.

Turns out she was there for almost an hour before neighbors saw her on their way to church. Her body temperature was below the minimum reading for the thermometer the paramedics had with them. By the time she go to the hospital it was back up to 95ºF and climbing. I went to visit her and she was in good spirits... joking around. She just turned 80 two weeks ago She's in surgery right now for her broken femur. Hopefully that goes well.

Sounds like a tough lady... disposition plays a big part. My 88-yo great aunt has had a heart attack, a broken leg and all sorts of ailments lately but is too stubborn or forgetful to die.

Got into Phoenix this morning around 4. 37-hour drive through St. Louis, Tulsa (wrong way on a turnpike can waste you an hour), Amarillo (past an 80-car pileup going the other way), Albuquerque, and Flagstaff, with short breaks for naps. Driving in weather went okay, through fog in Illinois and freezing rain to light snow in OK. My cat was amazingly well-behaved, probably because she wasn't cooped up, and mostly just slept in the passenger's lap or perched up on the luggage and took in the sights. Nice to experience a traditional home-for-the-holidays walking into a full house and cooking smells! GOD-BLESS-US-EVERYONE

That's scary, CS. I'm glad the last report was good news, and I hope it continues that way.

We were all joking around today at the hospital. The snow was falling so thick and blowing so hard, you could barely see outside. I made the comment, "It's just as well that you're in here today. You certainly wouldn't want to be out in this stuff. You might fall and get hurt."

I am glad she was in good spirits and hope the surgery went well. Merry Christmas and I hope everyone has a safe and fun work break.
