One T-Bone, One Fridge, One Boot.... - Blather. Rants. Repeat.
A Møøse once bit my sister ...
One T-Bone, One Fridge, One Boot....
Also, one really weird lookin' bird, but I'm going to let Eleanor handle that one.

Going backward in time for these three events of the day:

The t-bone was what happened to Cameron an hour or so ago. He's fine (he says), and it was his company's car, which got hit while he was stopped in traffic, five minutes from his workplace and some idjit t-boned his drivers side door. Fortunately, the "car" was more of a van, and he was up higher than he would've been in their car. He will be nagged beyond belief if he doesn't go check out any post-accident pain he has.

The fridge is here. It's ours. Pinocchio, you're a real kitchen now:)  I wasn't here for the delivery, but I opened it moments ago, and.... I SAW COLD THINGS. THEY'RE EVERYWHERE. THEY'RE NOT PILED ON TOP OF ONE ANOTHER ALL HIGGELDY-PIGGELDY. STUFF IS AT EYE LEVEL.   I know, I usually don't get excited about household appliances, but this was way overdue and deserved. The cooktop and microwave are also delivered, but not yet set up.  One thing at a time.

And den dere is Das Boot. I took it on my foot's first extended journey today: Rochester and back, including both offices, one court, three other lawyers' offices, and lunch.  All of it with the heavy, hockey-skatey one on except for the long drives to and from home, for which I switched into the Velcrostock sandal one. Other than stubbing one toe at one stop, it doesn't seem to have overdone it, although I'm avoiding further activity today and will take it much easier until my next Work Day Out on Monday.

Now off to not get ready for the NFL draft.

ETA. Couple things to add:

* Emily called with more detail on Wha'Happened: Cam was moving, starting a left turn, when Idjit decided he was going too slow and decided to pass him on the left.  Claims he didn't see his turn signal. Uh huh. Hard to see anything when your head is either looking down at your phone or up your own ass.

* Okay, I will talk about the bird. We both saw it out front- an all-white pigeon, hanging round the feeders.  Turns out to be a tumbler pigeon: not a website, but the kind trained to, well, tumble, like back with the spinning tops on the 60s Ed Sullivan Show. It's almost certainly a lost pet, but it seems rather taken by our yard; here's our guest strutting out front a while ago:

It boogied when a neighbor rolled in her garbage tote, but I'm guessing on a return.

* And an odd third thing: Facebook pulled a link to this very post earlier, sending my friend cafemusique a replacement link saying it had been flagged for possible malicious content. As originally posted, this entry was innocuous to the point of bordering on boring (no links within it, no pics, not even any curses!), enough to make me wonder if I'd flagged some identity-theft algorithm by being that clean.

Fuck that.

Turns out other people have been having similar issues with links to known pr0n sites like CNN and Vanity Fair.  Let's see if this revised version gets through, with embedded video and at least some added profanity.

I have a friend in SC who raises "roller pigeons" and they're not trained to do that - it's just something they do, no one seems to know why. Selective breeding increased their ability, but he doesn't train the birds at all. They roll on the ground and in flight. It's really cool to see. Chances are that you have a birder in your neighborhood who was flying his birds that day and one of them took a detour into your yard.

He brought his birds into James' kindergarten class (was that really seven years ago? whoa!) and the kids had a blast.

And that FB link removal thing is total BS. I've been having links removed and have been banned from clicking on and sharing links because of supposed malicious content. I keep wanting to remove my page, but I'll lose touch with so many people, most importantly my SMA friends, and I just can't bring myself to do that without another way to stay in touch reliably. Grr... must be nice to be the only game in town.

They restored my "malicious" post without me even complaining after curing yesterday's hiccup, so maybe you have hope.

Ouch! The T-bone, thing, I mean. *hugs*
