I Love Lucy returns…

So I take the dogs for a hike every day. And every day for the past five days there has been this hole in the middle of the trail. The kind of hole dug by a dog or coyote after a mole or whatever might be living in the dirt. So every day for five days I step around this hole, which is about the size of a bowling ball but twice as deep. As I pass, inevitably either Frat Boy or Cali will stop to stick their nose in the hole, add a few half hearted swipes at it, and then bored, they pass right on by.

Today about five yards before the hole, both dogs took off running and barking. So I tell myself as I look up “don’t forget the hole, don’t forget the hole”. But as I look up I see that both dogs are chasing down a very cute guy on a bike and his very cute dog. So I get distracted yelling at the dogs to stop.

You see where I’m going with this, right?

Sigh. I’m yelling “get back here” and waving to the cute guy so he knows we’re not out to kill him, and …

I fall into the hole.

Hand to heaven. You can’t make this stuff up, you just can’t…

I think tomorrow I’ll take another trail. I’m not ready to face cute guy any time soon.

  1. You seem to have taken the klutz karma/jinx/curse from me as I have not done anything like that since I subscribed to your newsletter. Now you will unsubscribe me… 😂🤣😂🤣
    Seriously, I hope nothing was injured – well, other than your pride.

    I fully expect to see a character in one of your books (could be a guy) that is severely accident prone. My husband used to tell folks that I could trip over an oil slick that had been washed down three times. Sigh.

    Enjoy your walks.

  2. OMG! You crack me up girl!

    I really think you should be a comedian on the side:)

    Love these I Love Lucy moments!

    Have a super weekend.


  3. Hope cute guy was also chivalrous guy and stopped to help!
    Fingers crossed you didn’t bugger up ankle and back….

  4. Hope you didn’t hurt yourself. Now you have the perfect beginning of a new story. Maybe another to add to the Animal Magnetism series or the start of a new series. This was just to good not to put in a book.

  5. Oh dear. Since you are posting it I am guessing you didn’t hurt yourself, other than your pride. I’m a born klutz as evidenced by needed second surgery on unhealed, misaligned broken wrist which I’ve broken three or four times – always by tripping on a sidewalk.

    Take care of yourself Jill and I’m sorry that cute guy on bije didn’t come to check that you were okay.

  6. OMG, are you okay??? Cute guy will survive — he is probably thankful you tried to stop the dogs from licking him to pieces. You always start off my day with a laugh — thanks for that!

  7. Lol.. Only you can make my day start off so well.
    What I want to know is if you told Alpha Man this story – Like the whole story including the “cuse guy”..

    As always thanks for putting yourself right out there with the funny stories.

  8. I hope you are OK – and maybe if you see the cute guy again, and limp, he will be sympathetic ….you can say the limp is an old football injury.
