Greetings from (the incredible) HULK
Well, I suppose most (human) mothers have played the little piggie game, using their children's toes-----(This little piggie went to market, this little piggie stayed home...................). well, the fifth little piggie, (the one that went wee, wee, wee, all the way home) has nothing on my Dad. I was helping dad in the storage shed yesterday, when he picked up a heavy box to move it. The bottom of the box opened up, and the contents fell out----including a large pipe wrench which landed squarely on Dad's toe. Well, first Dad made a rather poor attempt at yodeling---then, grabbing his foot in both hands, made a rather interesting attempt at an indian war dance, complete with authentic sound effects. Then he outdid the fifth little pig as he went wee, wee, weeee! All the way home. On a scale of one to ten, I gave his performance a seven in entertainment value.
We still have almost eighteen inches of snow in the places that don't get much sun, and night time temperatures have been below freezing. It has warmed up during the day to the mid forties. The driveway hasn't turned to ice yet this year, as it usually does.
