Sometimes the unexpected happens. Like this morning when I was trimming limbs from some dead trees that I had cut down a few days ago. As I worked my way down the tree knocking off limbs my feet got tangled up in some limbs and I lost my balance and fell backwards. Lucky for me as I fell backwards downhill a nice firm aspen tree stopped my momentum with a loud cracking noise. I think the aspen tree was harder than my head.
After a quick call to the doctor we headed right into town where 6 staples later the wound was closed up. From home to treatment to home again was an even three hours. There are advantages of living in a small town because three hours was all that was needed from start to finish. Two of those three hours were spent driving. From what I hear in big cities the emergency room wait can take 6-8 hours. Another small town advantage.
