Dogs snore

beside me as I lie

white plastered foot

elevated on pillows like a crown.

Royal pain.

      On the same day I broke my ankle, a friend’s husband had a heart attack while ploughing snow (with a machine, I believe). The storm had power out for a couple of days for some of my friends. It’s been a rough year for more than a few of us! Here’s hoping it gets better asap!
