Hidy Ho, crafty peeps!
I sat down yesterday and made a list of all the projects I have to get finished before I leave on a trip to Colorado in a couple of weeks.
Well I totaled it all up...I have 15 projects to get done. That's roughly one per day until I leave.
MOJO, DON'T FAIL ME NOW!
Today's creative task was to make a get well soon card for my uncle, Hanes. He is in the hospital following an "outpatient" procedure that didn't quite go as planned. After which, he spent several days as a guest in the ICU. He's now out of ICU and, in all hopes, will be strong enough to come home soon.
A note about my uncle: he has a very wry sense of humor. He's a funny guy...but his humor is often overshadowed by his quiet demeanor. He wrote one of my all-time favorite limericks (which I'll share now).
There was a man of many devises
who had ears of two different sizes...
the one that was small
was of no use at all...
but the large one won several prizes.
I giggle every time I recite it.
So, in honor of my subtly-humorous uncle (whom I call "unka"), I made him this get well soon card -- complete with an original limerick by yours truly.
My limerick (if you can't read it on the card) goes like this:
There once was a man named Hanes.
His legs were giving him pains.
To the hospital he went.
They put in a stent...
to bypass the kinks in his veins.
The inside of the card reads: "Hope you are back in circulation soon!"
It is FRAUGHT with medical double entendre!!! FRAUGHT, I tell you!
Get well, Unka!!
