My Battle with Breast Cancer

Come Contribute To My Story

This morning, as I write this, I am trying to keep busy so I won't think about how thirsty and hungry I am.  My surgery is at noon today, and I am not supposed to have anything to eat or drink before hand.  In fact, I couldn't even get a drink in the middle of the night.  That midnight cut off is rough. Scroll down and read yesterday's post to get more of an idea of what is going on in my life today, if you missed it.

Yesterday, I asked my Facebook friends what kind of entertainment we should have today.  I think the Story Time theme won.  So today's post will all be in the comment section.  I am going to start the story with a few words, and let you guys keep the story going.  Hopefully there will be more than just one or two of you play along.  I know I really don't need to say this, but I am going to anyway.  Please keep it clean.  Our grandkids see this, and they are old enough to read. 🙂

On to the comment section…

    So the jealous horse placed the caramel candy in the feed trough next to the oats.

    (Keep in mind I know nothing about horses,lol). So, the horse with the big teeth and the greatest smile, we’ll call him Jim, trots on over to the carmel in the trough…and start to check it out…

    “Oh my” says Jim. “What do we have here?”

    …out popped the caramel. At the very moment the caramel came flying out, old Charlie horse was ambling by. The caramel rocketed by Charlie and out the barn door. The hens came running to examine their new booty. Jim just neighed his relief and snorted, “By golly, that was a big oat!” Glancing over his shoulder he noticed Justin grinning from ear to ear. “What….

    Justin knew that Jim didn’t know what just happened in the barn.

    …Meanwhile out in the barnyard Sugar the mare and her friend Clover were practicing their karaoke act. They burst out in song: “I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
    I can see all obstacles in my way
    Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
    It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
    Sun-Shiny day

    Unfortunately they had completely forgotten about the saliva-covered caramel on the ground. In their haste to hear the uplifting equine singing, they failed to look DOWN, and (first) Jim, then Justin and (finally) Charlie stepped on the slippery lolly… chickens scattered all directions, as three out-of-control horses skated towards…
