The Nazareth Sinkhole

So when the first real snowstorm we had this year started, I was at a meeting in Hanover Township. I made it home safely, but when I walked from my car to my estate, I slipped on a piece of ice, did a double flip and landed right on my ass. That, and my right elbow, were black and blue and sore for about two weeks.

Yesterday, on my way to my car, I decided to help some old lady dig out. After about a good thirty minutes, her car could pull out, but then she wanted me to shovel her walks so she wouldn't slip and fall on her ass.

I did it, too, and was paid a dollar.

Having done my good deed, I walked to my car, slipped on the damn piece of ice again, did a double flip, and landed on my ass and elbow.

When I got home tonight, Nazareth officials were looking at the spot where I did my gymnastics. They're certain it's a sinkhole.

Bernie, I think that hole cost me an alignment and wheelcover. If you see a '63 Corvair hubcab in the gutter near your place after the snow melts, please advise.

I knew I heard something yesterday. I thought they were blasting at the quarry.

Thanks for making me laugh today. That was a good story...sorry about your repeated mishaps though. :)

So how are you feeling now? I trust you are not in a sling or something. I hope the old lady is at least bringing you soup. Or another dollar. Maybe the old lady is thinking Gracedale sounds pretty darned comfortable right about now.

"So how are you feeling now? I trust you are not in a sling or something." I'm always miserable so no one really noticed, except for the noise.
