Just a little something so ya'll don't have to look at my toe anymore.

Garage Sale Mishap

If you have ever had a garage sale then you should know that they are quite interesting.
From people watching, my personal favorite, to broken bones??  
We had a garage sale this past week and it sure is a lot of work to get everything together.  We make some okay money and then get to purge all that stuff from the house that is just taking up space in the closets.

Now let me apoligize to all of you now for those people that hate to look at feet but I just had to show the result of our garage sale mishap.  
Here is the story....  The garage sale customers got a little crazy.  We had a special sale item and two women got into a little brawl over it.  Someone had to step in before things got too far out of hand and I just had to take care of it.  Before I knew what was happening I was thrown to the floor!!  A while later after things had settled down I noticed a throbbing feeling in my toe, took off my shoe and noticed that it had started to swell. 

Just kidding, the real story is that the garage sale was going so well that we had to reconfigure our setup.  
I had a little problem operating the appliance cart.

A Great Weekend

We had a great weekend to kick off the summer season.  We drove north on Friday night.  On Saturday and Sunday morning Chris got up early and went fishing while I slept in.  I got a lot of reading done and then when Chris got back from fishing we walked to the neighbors cabin and went with them on a pontoon ride.

This is the closest thing to a sunset that I could get with my camera.  What a great day!!

On the drive home I decided to challenge myself with a bike ride so I asked Chris to take me on this trail that he had rode before.   We got home unpacked the truck and got a bite to eat, threw the bikes in the truck and went to the trail.  We met a friend there and he looked at me and asked one last time, "Are you sure you want to do this?"  I said of course and we took off.  A little ways down the trail I thought to myself, what was I thinking?  This ride was a little different than what I was used to.  We usually ride on the road and add a few hills.  This ride was VERY hilly and bumpy with lots of rocks.  It was what they call Extreme biking.  It was a challenge I put myself up to and I will not lie, I was not sure if I could finish it.  
This picture was taken a little over half way thru the trail.  Chris tells me the ride was about 8 miles. 

We are planning to do this ride again with a group of people.  If you would like to come along let me know.
