Another Winter Problem

Not a huge problem. But one caused by the storms. When I finally was dug out - the back door cleared and the ramp shoveled off - I went down to the car. It wasn't about to go anywhere, drifted in, but I thought I'd better start it, since that hadn't happened for at least a week. When I opened the door, I looked down and saw a big piece of ice hanging below it. Stupidly, I kicked at it. The minute I'd done it, I knew it was a foolish thing to do, and it hurt.

After a day or two, my ankle started to swell and turn black and blue. In the following couple of weeks it just kept getting worse. It was painful to wear a shoe or try to walk. X-rays showed no break. Doctors hadn't a clue either. It's now three weeks, and it is actually getting better. But, as I often do, I decided to 'toon it. So - what the heck - here it is.

Ouch! Hope you are on the mend and feeling better soon! Sounds like you did a number! Cute cartoon!

awww! Bobbie!
yeah, this winter has been a tough one, though I am glad you have kept your sense of humor.
I hurt my back last Friday shoveling snow. It only felt better yesterday.
I guess that is nothing compared to 3 weeks!

Gosh, Bobbie... I would have done the same thing. I would have broken my ankle though. I think my bones are not as strong as they used to be.

I am sorry about your leg but look at the full half of the glass: you have more time for your art. And you are really talented. Your toons are great fun. I have no time for my painting lately. Of course I don't want to break my leg for it.
Have a nice weekend!

Gee - I wouldn't call this "art". It's fun, and does take some imagination to create the characters from the various body parts offered by toonlet.com. But I don't think of it as art.

I love your cartoons! You're very good! I'm so sorry about your foot and I am glad it is on the mend -- even if it is slowly -- seems everything about me mends/moves more slowly than it used to -- well everything except my mouth it never slows down!!! And I think Isaac has extraordinary powers! How fun! Can't wait to see pictures of his creations!!
