i’ll be in The Park for a couple days…. Mom’s scheduled for heart catheterization today. It’s an outpatient procedure, but highly recommended that someone spend the night.
The plan from my family members was to have DQ, Jr. stay over. That would be the 13 year old. On a school night. My sister, S, was the other option, but she’s had the flu, so that was off the table.
I’ll be spending the night there, under a pile of cheap plastic crap, in a recliner in Mom’s living room, being nibbled by fleas. And thinking about that nice, puncture wound in her femoral artery… i hate puncture wounds.
But it will keep my mind off the spiders circling my head…
Why is your mother living with fleas?
Breeding a master race of them… If these critters can survive in the massive smoke cloud inside this house, they’ll survive nukes.
Which trailer is yours?
Yer mom must be into hairy critters?
I like the look of that trailer park. Where is it ?
I trust your mom is okay. I had a heart cath once, the femoral artery poke was bad but the rest was okay, recovery was easy enough. Remind sometime me to tell you my best Cringe story that happened during that procedure …. it’s a real prize winner.
Hope you can get some sleep.
If you could convince the fleas to engage in a turf war with the spiders, you might be able to get some sleep.
yours is the black one at the top right?
Uncle keith – depends on who you ask. Kinfolk would say upper right, as they feel I look down on them. I’d say the one on the bottom – since their shit flows my way…
uw – her lady friends at church could probably benefit from a little wax…
lksn – it was built as a set for an outdoor theater production. It is pretty brilliant.
bc – I’ll get that cringe story later. I managed a little sleep, but am stiff as a cork (and not in the good way) from the “chiropractors dream” recliner.
kyknoord – survived the night. Will have to burn my clothing outside my garage when I get home.
nm – with the trapeze on the balcony 🙂
Excellent photo! 🙂
I can imagine that the ejecto-bed works fabulously from that top trailer.
But seriously … why fleas?
I bet the tornados are lining up to knock that thing down.
az – the ejecto-bed might throw the whole thing out of balance and cause complete collapse. i’m not sure there were fleas this time – her house makes me itch. may be psychosomatic… but the black lung conditions are real. i was coughing for over an hour after i left today.
uncle keith – that trailer stack would be a tornado magnet!
Love the condos!! 🙂
best of luck for your mum n that…….
It’s Britney Spear’s mansion I think. There shouldn’t be any fleas there. She has no hair and all her critters were taken out of her custody.
awalkabout – they really are clever! shame they’re not real! For more info on the “redneck mansion”, here’s a link explaining the origins as a set for a Chekhov play.
manuel – thanks. she’ll likely need more surgery. there’s a good chance she can come out the other side feeling a lot better than she does now. in the meantime, i ain’t getting writers block anytime soon… hope you’re feeling better!
uw – it was. she got kicked her out for being too trashy and bringing down the property values.
