My day was so Thrilling I just had to share

(I don't think I've been here before. I was looking for gardening, and found you first, but I think my story will fit right in here.)

My day, Nov. 12, 2020

I went down hill to town to mail a letter and get some wood chips. I saw there was section that was older and the leaves had composted nicely. I filled my pickup. Came home and was helped by Les and Mary putting it in the garden. They also found more Golden Chanterelles while I was gone. When I went to feed the Llama I saw she hadnít eaten the apples I had given her this morning and I proceeded to step over the fence and check on her. My second step didnít clear the fence. The fence is a very loose fence and it was pulled down as I tried to support myself with it while I landed flat on my back. And itís like that isnít enough fun so the feeding box made of 2X6 redwood comes along and hits me in the head. Great, Iím still alive and breathing. I roll over, get myself up, put the feeder back and continue to check on the Llama. She is fine, out eating from the abundance of green grass. I went into the garden and watered down a bed Angie and I had planted in garlic and lettuce starts. I dressed the seedlings with the mulch and had noticed the last two sunny days had dried out the top of the soil. I watered that just after sunset and got to see a few clouds brighten up the sunset and a planet light up in the sky

Many Blessings.

9. As you get older, life gets more exciting.

Yesterday, I took a tumble outside, was on the ground/off the steps and backed into a box. Lost my balance and hit the ground. Took 15 seconds to do a physical inventory. All nerves reported back, "good to go".

Wasn't bad at all, woke up this AM with no overnight pain or stiffness.

10. I don't have to trip over anything, just stepping backwards

I can lose my balance, so often will turn and move if possible.

11. Wife put some new padded thingies on our front porch steps...

Went to get the mail at dusk and tripped over the top one and fell about 3 feet to the concrete below, raspberries on my right knee and some scrapes on my hand, am still wondering if I would have done that 30 years agoÖ thank GOD I didnít hit my head or what little sense I have left, would certainly be gone.

12. Are the padded things to wipe your feet on before coming in?

3 feet is a good fall, good thing you did a reasonable landing. For myself it's Parkinson's that disrupts my gate and balance.

I agree, getting old gets some getting used to.
