|I should have seen that hose looped there in the entrance !|
“After you feed the dogs, please give the garden a watering,” said my husband as I went out the door.
The 12 tomato plants from Home Depot were doing well, and the squash was just starting to peek out
from their silent row.

The chard needed to be sprinkled and I was ready with the hose and attachment to spray the lot.
I suppose I was not paying attention to the long hose that was looped across the garden opening, and I did not step high, because I slid right into the loop catching my foot and falling forward flat on my face.
Our two dogs were no help and Robert was busy elsewhere, so I lay there for a moment until I could decide if I was all in one piece. Rolling over, I gingerly pushed my way to a standing position and realized my eye was full of dirt. Anyway, since I was there, I gave the garden its duly watering and then brushed myself off and went inside.
One look at me and Robert knew I was in trouble. I excused myself and went to wash my face and change my clothes and administer some eye drops. Robert gave an ice pack and told me to be sure to put some Aloe Vera on my skinned face which I did.

Then Robert gave me something to drink and I laughed and told him they will probably ask me questions at church on Sunday, and I will tell them, “You should see the other guy.”
