The weekend injury report...

Actually, these all happened on Saturday. Hoo, what a day...

#1) Yellow jacket sting on the upper chest (incurred while bicycling, AS ALWAYS).
#2) Extra sting around the side of the waist (same insect as above. That's how I know it wasn't a honeybee).
#3) Tripped on the edge of a stair getting off a ladder (pruning trees), and crushed my mid-rear against the stair above THAT. Sonofabitch, that hurt. Still does!
#4) Avoided tripping on stair again later after repositioning ladder, but rammed my shins into a ladder rung instead.

And yet, I will take this if the other choice was to have something happen on Sunday, when I was up on the roof. :O
