"Life is what happens, while........."

What's the saying;  "Life is what happens, while you are making other plans."  Yup!  It is!

(just some pretty spray)
Well, we have switched roles here, it seems.  Remember back in April, when I had so much knee trouble?  Which is all better, thankfully.   Well, he bent (in the wrong way) to pick up a magazine off the floor, and......   Threw out his hip or some such.   

(College across the road, is continuing rock wall, along *alleyway*...)
So....   He is sort of incapacitated and I am on *go-go-duty*.  ,-)  Which is only fair!   He was on *go-go-duty*, while I was taking care of my knee. 

He will see our chiropractor, and hope he does his "magic."

We were excited to see contractor's machine, in front of Sold House behind us.  This pic taken through screen, from an upstairs window.  So it's not clear.

I talked to one of the "worker bees" when I took this picture.  He said they are "neating-up" the area, around  it.  And will demolish the house, sooon.    

Of course, new owner has left this a mess, for so many months, and has seemed to dither about it.  While dealing with buying and selling other city property.  So...  We are not holding our breath.

It all depends, on how you look at it...... ,-)

In the Northern Hemisphere, what will a lot of bloggers, be blogging about, this week???   The heat/humidity!!!   And I'm no different.  The only time, to do anything, in my "neck of the woods", is in the morning.  Later, it becomes down-right dangerous.  And not just for 'olden' folks.
 .
Soooooooooooooooo.....  Let's take a little walk down 'Memory Lane'...  To Winter Time!   ,-)

A random memory......

In a post by Petra, she was describing being welcomed at a recent party, by a woman smoking a cigar.  And it reminded me.  I used to smoke cigars!

It was back, during my madly-in-love-with-Mel-Gibson period.  Watched (nearly) all his films (never could get through end of 'Braveheart'). Even saw his very first appearance on screen, which was not very impressive.  ,-)  And Mel smoked cigars.  And one of my sons did, at the time also.   So, I had to try it!!!

Outside on the back patio, in the evening, with a glass of sherry...  Interesting...  Not that long-lived a period.  But it's a memory. 
.

Have you ever smoked cigars?  Do you have other memories?  Of doing something "different", perhaps?  :-)

“From the backstabbing co-worker to the meddling sister-in-law, you are in charge of how you react to the people and events in your life. You can either give negativity power over your life or you can choose happiness instead. Take control and choose to focus on what is important in your life. Those who cannot live fully often become destroyers of life.”
~Anaïs Nin
