I Was Sprung From Jail Today

It has been 13 days since I had some guy with the same last name as mine, carved my knee like I was a baked turkey.  He cut, sawed, clipped, glued/cemented and stapled me back together.  Today, I showered, got dressed, put on make up, ate breakfast, and had a date with this guy who happens to have the same last name as me, only his first name is Doctor.

His nurse removed the staples.
Yes, it hurt! Thanks for asking.  Like 23 Bee Stings!!!!  There were 23 staples.
DH watched, and he didn't pass out.  I almost did!

I have to have out patient therapy now.  Crap!  I like having them come to my home and I don't hardly do anything but brush my teeth and hair for my PT.  Her name is Monica and I adore her.....even when she hurts me.  She is so dang cute, with funky red hair and the cutest scarfs I have ever seen.  I will miss her bright energy. 

So, in celebration of my new "out patient therapy" we went for a drive.

I am nearly giddy with excitement to tell you about it.  But, I think I will just share a few of the 200 photos I took.

We drove south on I15 and I realized what I was seeing,.... field after field of wild geese.
Out of 17 pictures, this one is the best.  It is hard to get a clear picture while going 75 miles per hour.

This is SOOC (straight out of camera) . No Editing.  I just love old barns.
Another 75 miles per hour photo.

You know how I love sunsets.
Another SOOC photo.
However, we were going slower.  DH decided to drive home on some back roads.

We exited I15 at Blackfoot and took some back roads all the way home.
We wished the sun would just a wait a few minutes longer for us to get some pictures.
When I say "we" you know I mean "me".
DH is such a good sport.

We were driving out in rural America.  I think the town was Goshen. 

And look what we saw on the side of the road. 
DH stopped for this!!!
We were so excited.
I fumbled for a few minutes until I got my camera out.
Another SOOC shot, with very little light, but I think you can see what we saw.

Finally, we drove just a little further.....
and we hit the gold mine.

It started with a few, and then we could see the line of Mule Deer coming towards us, and crossing the road, right through a farmyard.  The deer didn't seem to think anything of trespassing on private ground.  And I would bet the farmers wife didn't either.  However, the farmer may have something else in mind for his hay stack.  But, for tonight, I think the world stopped, and we just enjoyed nature!

I can't possibly tell you how glad we were to stumble across this herd.
The youngest daughter was with us, and she was in awe of the sight.
And we were about 10 miles or less from home.

We will try again to get out soon, a little earlier in the evening and get some more shots of these darling little Mule Deer.  The little ones, the bigger ones, the ones with antlers and the ones with big ears.

But you must know, I took over 200 bad photos with poor light, and I love everyone of them.  I watched the slide show.  What a story they tell.  I will try and get some edited for you, or just take new ones.........

Have I told you lately how much I love Retirement?

Have I told you lately how much I love Idaho?

Have I told you lately how much I love the snow and winter?

Have I told you it was 2 degrees this morning outside, and I didn't mind?

Yep, I am happy!
