WTF Wednesday, Rollin with my Homie

We have a huge oak tree in our back yard and earlier in the year I noticed that one of the limbs was about to fall so I mentioned it to MacGyver.  He scoffed and said that the tree was old but very sturdy and it wasn’t going anywhere, but since I’m the one who loves to garden and I’m always working in the yard I knew it was cracked and about to fall.  I knew it.

really

It was a mere week later when MacGyver was at work and I was in the backyard by the fire pit throwing some sticks from the yard in there when I thought I heard a crack.  The next thing I remember is waking up on the ground beside a very large tree limb.  I had quite a bump on my head but I was okay.  When MacGyver got home I told him what happened and yelled at him for not cutting down the obviously weak limb and then I told him that the other side of the tree also had a weak limb and I thought it should be cut down as well.  His solution, don’t walk under the tree.

A few months later Mom and I were outside and I was walking out in the back yard and guess what fell?  Yep, the other tree limb!  I called MacGyver to let him know and he said, ‘I told you to stay away from that tree!’

What?

How about we trim the tree?

So let’s skip ahead to current time and two days ago when I’m casually walking out to my she shed to get something.  My she shed is on the other side of the yard, the OTHER side, in the dog’s yard.  Hank and I were in there and I was just about to open the door to my shed when I felt the whip of a branch down my back and a loud bang and then, the ground shook.

It took a moment for me to realize what had happened but then I freaked out because I realized a tree had fallen and it had fallen on little Hank.

Fortunately, Hank was fine and more concerned about me as he jumped and maneuvered his way through all of those branches.  Afterwards, still shaking, I ran into the garage and told MacGyver what happened and brought him over to show him the tree and the damage.  His response was, ‘stay out of the back yard.’

Seriously

Obviously we aren’t going to be trimming the precious freakin trees!

In case you didn’t see my Instagram post on Monday, this is what it looked like,

Monday Run

And I show you this because this is what Tuesday looked like,

tuesdays run

You have no idea how hard I had to work to get that extra calorie and if you’re wondering why I tried so hard, I kid you not, Sympathy for the Devil was randomly playing on my Pandora station!

One more thing for you today.  I’ve got a Woody update and you can really see the red in his head now.

Woody

My little Woodpecker baby is all grown up!

And this is my favorite picture of me and Woody so far, I call it Rollin with my homie!

I’m thinking of making this my new Instagram profile pic, it’s pretty epic.

WTF, it’s Wednesday!

WTF Wednesday, What if you naturally fidget, then what?

What’s crack-a-lackin?  Only the best thing ever.  Will and Grace is coming back to TV.  I could just die.  I am probably far too excited for this but I just love this show.

And if Will and Grace wasn’t your thing, maybe Roseanne was.  It’s also coming back.  And the best part is, they’re bringing back the original Becky!

It was 96 degrees here yesterday.  I’m not sure if that was a record or anything for May but it was crazy hot.  I ran anyway because I’m crazy like that.  I didn’t run when it was 96 degree’s though.  I’m crazy, not stupid.  I don’t know how anyone can run when it’s anywhere near that temperature and the sun is beating down on you.  Not even dogs wanna run in that temperature!

Bitch, I said ain’t runnin!

When we were out on the boat over the weekend we were cruising past the Venetian walkway and it must have been around three in the afternoon and I looked over and saw a man and woman running out on the trail with no visible water on their person, none.  They looked to be running at a pretty good pace, if I had to guess I’d say at least an 8 minute mile, if not faster.

True

Maybe they were used to running in this weather but they should’ve had water.  Take a water bottle with you because the water fountains may not always work and an ounce of prevention goes a long way.

Am I the only person in the world who thinks fidget spinners are stupid?

I’m not changing my mind on this one.  These things are a colossal waste of time.  What if you’re a natural fidgeter?  If you have time to play with these things you need to get a job.  I don’t care if you ARE eight years old.

WTF it’s Wednesday!  Go drink some water and throw down the spinner.

WTF Wednesday with woody and a spoonbill crane

It is so hard to get anything done with a pecker in your lap.

Woody Allen Jac

They thought you meant something else!

Woody Allen Jac is gettin big!  He hangs out on my lap for a bit sometimes but mostly he stays in his cage because we try not to handle him too much.  Unfortunately he imprinted on me quite rapidly even though we tried really hard not to let it happen.

But it was impossible because this is totally me…

Snow White

We’ve had a bit of a drought here and because of the lack of water all kinds of wildlife has been making it’s way into our backyard to drink from the pond.  Recently we’ve had a pink spoonbill crane which we’ve never had before.

We’ve also had screech owls!  I didn’t get any photos of them because they only come out at night but they’re so cute.

Don’t worry, I haven’t kept any of them so far.

My Mom and Shakespeare left yesterday and I’m just catching up with work today so I really didn’t have a lot of time prepare a long post today but I wanted to share the photo of Woody with you and I also wanted to share this photo with you that I saw on Pinterest in the funny feed earlier in the week because it cracked me up.

LOL

Now, if that doesn’t make you laugh out loud, nothing will.

WTF, it’s Wednesday, laugh a little, the week is half over!
