light relief

Today lovely daughter and I visited mum. She was on good form but still expecting to be able to go home at some point. I decided not to rain on her parade just yet. She's on a ward that's a step up from the previous one, where lots of occupational therapy and physiotherapy will be offered to aid rehabilitation. There's a lovely view of the Cleveland Hills from the ward window but I'm not sure mum's eyesight is good enough to appreciate it, they do look a lot cloudier these days (mum's eyes, not the hills) - I think cataracts are developing.

As we were driving away from the hospital, LD suddenly exclaimed "Oh my god!" and said she'd seen a man tugging on his todger in full view of the main road. Of course we had to double back to have another look just to check :-) Sure enough, laid down on the path at the side of a very busy main road was a guy, naked from the waist down, his meat and two veg enjoying the rays of the afternoon sunshine. We turned round and drove past again on our way home, he was then sitting up and rummaging around between his legs. He looked under the influence of something. We decided to do the good citizen thing and phoned the police, an hilarious exercise in itself, given the subject matter. Then we thought we'd better go back again to check whether the police had turned up - in all seriousness we were worried that some outraged local might take the law into their own hands. The police were with him (his trousers were back on) and we introduced ourselves as the reporters. It turns out that he was well known to the police, had still been semi-naked when they arrived, was drunk and had messed himself. LD has to give a formal statement describing what she saw, as the guy is claiming he was just cleaning himself up.

Don't you just love life's little surprises? lol

Oh my goodness! What an afternoon you've had.

I'm glad your mom is going to get some rehabilitation. It's so hard.

I hope you both kept a straight face during all this!
