You guys, I dislocated a rib. Yes, it is possible. No, this isn't my first time. Yes, it hurt just like the very first time. Yes, that was a corny joke based off of a song. Yes, the rib thing really happened though.
So while I'm tending to my wounds and sharing with you just exactly how awkward it is to relocate a rib, I'm killing time by organizing the photo files on my computer. And do you know what I realized? I realized that I take a TON of "scenic" pictures of the land around my house.
Like something may actually be wrong with me.
But I digress.
Anyway, after my post "The Life That Is Lived Here," where I showed you my neighborhood, I got a lot of emails from readers who were not pleased that I had hyped up how beautiful the farmlands are and then only showed you pictures of my neighborhood.
Sorry about that.
So as I'm sitting here flipping through virtual page after page of landscaping photos, trying to forget that the doctor got up close and personal with me in a way that makes me feel like he should have at least bought me a drink first (and dinner. Maybe two dinners), allow to me eat up a few minutes of your day with a photographic tour of where I live, all pictures courtesy of my cell phone:
This is what I see as I'm pulling out of the neighborhood:
And then the street that I turn on as soon as I leave my neighborhood:
Here is the view from my couch:
And from bedroom window:
Sorry about the glare from the blinds!
This little waterfall is about a three minute walk from my front door:
And just so you still don't feel slighted, I'll show you a few pics from near where I live. Sorry, I can't show you any of the actual town sights, you know, the things that people actually come here to see, but for safety reasons I don't want the entire world to know where I live and yadda, yadda, yadda... So instead I'll just show you a few of the random pics I've snapped not all that far from my house.
And because I like clouds.... here are some clouds. I know, just try your best to contain your excitement.
And lastly, from my driveway to your computer screen, I bring you.... kids.
There ya go! My view from home, brought to you exclusively by my camera phone.
It may be "outside of civilization" as Mr. Attorney Man refers to it, but at least it's a beautiful little spot in the middle of life's daily chaos.
And lastly, if I may leave you with a bit of advice, don't dislocate a rib. It sucks.
