Gotta BBQ with Summer weather like this...oh and what's a BBQ without a bruise?

Susan and Bryan (my two best friends, but then you already know that by now) invited me over for a barbecue tonight and perfect timing because the weather has finally decided to give us all a break! Phew! How gorgeous are these?

Oh. About the bruise part. Well...umm.......okay it went like this. When it came time for me to bring the skewered chickens to the BBQ outside where Susan was at, I stepped down the steps with my bare feet, long rod with skewered chickens in both hands.....the foot I stepped on the "wet" cement with slowly went out from under me..both my knees going inward...and my thighs slowly doing the splits. Okay, I know you all are picturing this and laughing. Heck I would! As Susan said afterwards, I went down gracefully. Lol! It sure didn't feel graceful BUT! Big BUT here...I SAVED THE CHICKENS! Yes! Despite my legs going North and South I held onto those skewered chickens like they were gold! Lol! See how much I respect food? And this is the doozy of a bruise I got. Oh and when did my legs turn into tree stumps? My legs look much better in person, I swear.

Oh! Look what Thea acquired this week. :) She didn't mean to acquire him though. Isn't that the way it always happens? She says she has to find a good home for him but I have a sneaking suspicion he already has found home. ;) I mean how can you deny this adorable cute thing!? He's a cross between a Jack Russell and a Shi-Tsu. I won't try to abbreviate that for you. You know like Labradoodles or Peekapoos. You can say it to yourself but don't say it out loud. People might think you're saying a bad word and poor little Buddy doesn't deserve to be called that.

She's already named him Buddy. Yep, I think Buddy is already home. She will kill me if she sees this post because she JUST CANNOT keep another dog.

Looks like Buddy's already having sweet dreams of his new home. I'm headed there myself. Night all!

Michelle, you're lucky you didn't break your leg. Super save though, on those chickens. Buddy is about as cute as dogs get. How could anyone not want to give this sweetie a home? Hugs, Kathleen

Tell her Buddy is small and won't take up much room ;) He is too cute!!

Good save on the chickens; I'm still laughing - sorry. I guess no mini skirts for you this week (lol). That sounds so much like something I would do. Glad it wasn't worse.

Take care,

Great save on those chickens! It's all about saving the food right? Sorry about the bruises. Those are dandies!
I am so glad it cooled down, makes like more enjoyable.
I want that adorable little puppy! He is sooooooo darn cute, despite the name of his breed. It took me a minute, but I got it! Too funny!

Kara said...

Glad you were okay, but happy to hear someone else do something that sounds like something I do all the time! Seriously, I fall like twice a month at least!

Also, I agree about the legs getting distorted in photos...i took a photo of my pup asleep on my leg and was horrified!

Joy said...

wow Michelle, glad you weren't hurt any worse! The chicken looks yummy... oh, and about my feather boa... I think I saw some at Hobby Lobby recently and they have them in various colors. Mine came from a second hand store.

Patti said...

Great save on the chickens. Too bad the stat won't go into the record books.

As to the were saving a little old lady from a dozen muggers, and ....

Buddy looks like a keeper to me! I know the JR half will provide many laughs.

Buuudddyyyy! Too darn cute for words! I want him. How could anyone resist him.

Falling down is not as easy as when we we're kids, huh? And you have the bruise to prove it! Take some extra Vit. C it helps with the healing(of bruises).

The pkg. I mailed you is something really small...I hinted about it a while back. You will understand when you get it, and laugh! xo Fairmaiden

Buddy is too adorable for words; but I'm still pining for Quincy!
