Fun, Fun, Fun...

“If a man insisted always on being serious, and never allowed himself a bit of fun and relaxation, he would go mad or become unstable without knowing it.” - Herodotus

I spent a good part of the day yesterday with my mom at the emergency room -- she fell several days back (have I mentioned that she's 73 y.o.?) and thought her arm was only bruised, but it hasn't been getting better. At the urging (nagging) of a fellow writer (doctor and horse enthusiast), I finally talked her into going for an x-ray. After umpteen hours, it was discovered that she'd broken her shoulder. The folks at the hospital were awfully nice, but it took so long. I'm tired and utterly brain dead even now (I would have slept past 5 a.m. but the cat woke me up). So, instead of my usual wit and repartee (LOL), I give you a few fun things to do:

Sorry to hear about your mother's shoulder -- I hope she's feeling better now and on her way to recovery. And I hope you have a more restful day today, as well.

*hugs* I'm glad you were able to convince your mom to get checked out.
