these two.

Monday April 1st I had my appointment with my ENT to get the splints taken out of my nose since having nose surgery the week before. (I know you just read "splints taken out of nose" and cringed and wondered if you wanted to keep reading...) I took a taxi (expensive ride into downtown Portland!) there and my brother kindly agreed to meet me there and give me a ride home (He knows first-hand the nastiness of this surgery). Last time I had this surgery 22 years ago, I hyperventilated and almost passed out in the office when they took the miles of packing out. (Ewww, right?...) So I planned accordingly this time around. Wasn't going to chance driving myself.

Anyway, Uncle Wes was kind enough to drive me home and then stay and play with Max for a couple of hours until T-ball practice.
These two.
Together... A crazy, hilarious pair.
Two peas in a pod.
They had me laughing so hard - which was quite painful for the schnoz which was still terribly swollen and sporting stitches. (Who knew the nose moves so much when you laugh?!)

It was some long over-due and much needed laughter in my life.
Love these two.

Aww SUCH a cute pair they are! "Splints taken out of my nose" didn't bother me as much as "miles of packing".... oh dear!! **shudder** I'll bet you are so glad that experience is behind you! AND... love the word schnoz.

Love your beautiful b&w's as always. And one of the best parts of these pics is the drawings and window art behind them. Looks like such a happy home! xo

So great that he has such a fun uncle in his life.

And so happy to hear that you are on the mend after surgery!

These photos had me smiling! So fun to see them together there in that beautiful window light. I think I would have passed out too in the doctor's office. Lord knows I've done that before with smaller issues--like getting a simple TB test.
Anyway, glad you had some laughs and that you are feeling better!
