Clam Digger

I'm still out here! Six days post surgery I am feeling better everyday and as of Monday, the Mr. declared me a big girl and left me home to return to work. There are more things I can do than I cannot do. Pretty much just heavy lifting and moving with speed or grace are all that's left. I do stand up very slowly with an unattractive groan. I was hoping to return to work on Thursday but that was based on laproscopic surgery and the cyst was a bit largish so a regular old incision was required. I will probably be extending my leave by a few days. Most importantly, I am healthy and recovering wonderfully.
In other news, we had a New England feast on Sunday which my dad prepared by boiling the food in one of them turkey fryer things on my driveway. After dinner, he dumped the water out into the yard. Well, Donny the hound dog sniffed out the juices and dug a hole in the middle of the grass, apparently clam-digging. Which is ridiculous because we didn't even have clams. The Mr. was a little perturbed but I'm hoping a crab leg tree will grow there in the spring.
Turn on your air conditioning and enjoy your Tuesday!

Glad to see you are recovering well and have a sense of humor about it. I had to laugh about your crab leg tree.
