Dam, Dam, Lake...He's Home!

On the way to the hospital, I pass the Norfork Dam...and you thought I was talking dirty!  This is the first time ever that I have seen this many gates open.  They are generating power with the overfill of water in the lake.
The white you see is water!!
The geese enjoy their picnic area.
There are roads and campsites here somewhere.
Here is the beach (imagine...it's under there)
 and the swimming area.
The skies were beautiful part of yesterday
but you can see the bad ones moving in.

After smashing my arm between the gate and the stall wall,
I hope I am through with boo-boos today.
Hubby, the unhappy, after surgery whiny man, is home.
I suspect they gave him enhanced whine through the IV.
God love him!
I have picked up special groceries,
made his favorite ice drink,
massaged his neck,
helped him into the recliner
and turned the tv on the western channel.

Maria was here, cleaning house again
and preparing for our return.
Luke has fed the calf.
Both of my girls have been a great help.

When the pain meds knock hubby out,
I am taking a nap!!

Okay, no more boo-boos for you! Glad your husband is home and I wish him a speedy recovery! Take a nice long rest when he goes to sleep! =)

That is a lot of water! The creeks and rivers around these parts are bursting with water as well and there is local flooding taking place too! Seems to be crazy weather all over the place!

geez...they can be such babies but glad he is home and all is well...mostly.

Rae said...

Hang in there girl. I could have killed my husband after I brought him home from surgery. It took every bit of patience I had to deal with his whining. It will get better:)

Kritter Keeper at Farm Tails said...

I hope you've had that nap by now, Gail. You do need it. Certainly when you have a grouchy patient at home. Men can be such babies. It's a good thing they don't have to give birth. Take good care of yourself. XOX

Kelsie From Our Country Home said...

Oh you poor thing, dealing with a sick hubby at this end too...both he and the baby got swine flu, guess which was easier to deal with ;)

Hope everyone is on the mend soon and you get a well deserved rest and the water goes down.

Blessings Kelsie
