Back to Caballo Lake State Park - Percha Flats edition

I've been "camping" in luxury's lap down by Caballo Lake, New Mexico. This is far from Spud-tenting; don't hate me because I'm decadent. My wifi device is behaving badly, and I'm reporting from the McDonald's in Truth or Consequences. Seclusion is great, and all, but Germany vs. Brazil is not a court case.

Annie said "everyone has to do foot shots.". I grudgingly comply.

This is my first-ever broken bone, and I don't have coping skills. This cast copes on my behalf. I've also had good care that walks (with two good legs) the thin line between coddling and neglect. My caretaker quacks me up when I flap too near self-pity.

I'll be solo soon, and I need to stay around Las Cruces until my follow-up orthopedic appointment on the 15th. After that, I think I'll head someplace cooler. I planned to go to Florida to see my mom, but if I need to return in a month for the leg unveiling, that's a long trip for two weeks.

Tell me a joke!

OK, only because you asked. My mom told me this joke back in the 60's. So this is an incredibly old joke. Still, it's your fault, you asked:
Mother rabbit hops out of the burrow and tastes a turnip.
She says to Father rabbit, "That turnip tastes pithy."
Father rabbit tries it and says, "You're right, it does taste pithy."
Baby rabbit hops out of the burrow at that point and says, "That's because I just pithed on it."
Yeah, me too. So, anyway, I am SO SORRY about your broken foot. EEK! OW!
I still intend to meet with you in Pie Town so we can eat many incredible pies. I hope I am still alive when that happens.
Your best friend in North Texas (??) Jool

Glad to hear you're mobile. Those "walking casts" are miraculous things; had one put on 4 days after I broke my leg & couldn't BELIEVE I could actually put weight & walk on that leg. One of life's miracles. So glad, because the crutches sucked. Sorry, I got nothin' so far as jokes go. I can't remember one for as long as it takes me to go back to my own campsite.

This is my all-time favorite joke. It even has a sequel but I'll save that for another time.

A church's bell ringer passed away. So they posted the position and a man came in with no arms wanting the job. The clergy weren't sure he could do it, but he convinced them to let him try it.
They climbed the bell tower and the guy ran toward the bell and hit it with his head. They gave him the job.
He did fine on the job for months but then one day he went to ring the bell, tripped, bounced off the bell and fell to the sidewalk below. Two guys were walking past.
One asked, "Do you know this guy?"
The second guy responded, "No, but his face rings a bell."

OK, so here's my very first post on your blog, in honor of your request for a joke.

Q: Why don't cannibals eat clowns?

A: They taste funny.

Ok you ask for it:))

Did ya hear the one about the Buddhist who went up to the hot dog vendor and said, "Make me one with everything."
Then the Buddhist pays for his hotdog with a $20. The vendor pockets it. The Buddhist says; "Hey, where's my change?"
The vendor smiles mysteriously and says, "Change comes from within."

What do you get if you put a duck in an area of geological activity?
An earthquack!

What kid of a doctor treats ducks?
A quack!

I think your cast is quite chic. Just hope it isn't a boot. You can drive with it? Now that's lucky. I have a stick shift and broke my left ankle. It was a LONG 2 months. I think you have already heard all my jokes. They are old and stupid.

What do you call two ducks and a cow? Quakers and Milk
At what time does a duck wake up? At the quack of dawn.
What do you call a cat that swallows a duck? A duck-filled-fatty-pus.

That's enough don't you think??

I went to the zoo the other day, there was only one dog in it, it was a shitzu.

I said to the Gym instructor "Can you teach me to do the splits?'' He said, ''How flexible are you?'' I said, ''I can't make Tuesdays.

Police arrested two kids yesterday, one was drinking battery acid, the other was eating fireworks. They charged one - and let the other one off.

My therapist says I have a preoccupation with vengeance. We'll see about that.

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please don't let Kevin Bacon die!

A rabbi a priest and a politician walk into a bar. The bartender says "Is this some kind of joke?"
Sounds like you're getting the right amount of care giving. Hope you're taking lessons for when you have to do it yourself. Pep talks, not pity parties! Bad time to be without WiFi though, hopefully the cooler place will have it!

Good Luck Duck said...

Oh, you guys - I knew I could count on you! I'm literally LOLing.

Pam said...

I'm still laughing at the bell ringer joke. So bad it's good! I have never remembered a single joke in my whole life so I'm of use in this situation. Get better.
