Why Kerrymen can't be paramedics

Paddy & Tom are out in the woods hunting when suddenly Paddy grabs his chest and falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing; his eyes are rolled back in his head. Tom whips out his cell phone and calls 911.

He gasps to the operator, "I think Paddy is dead. What should I do?"

The operator, in a calm soothing voice says, "Just take it easy and follow my instructions. First, let's make sure he's dead."

There is a silence...... and then a shot is heard.


Tom's voice comes back on the line,

"Okay, now what?"

Well I'm finally back after a break from the blogosphere. I actually had my gallbladder out so was in hospital (very briefly) and then recuperating for a couple of weeks. Have to say that keyhole surgery is pretty amazing, went into the hospital one morning at 8am and was out by 12.30pm the next day. So I'm feeling much better than I have in a while!

Have just begun trying to catch up with all my fave blogs as I took the full sabbatical from reading blogs as well as writing on this one. So will be logging onto Omani, JL, CatGirl, Kaz, Kev, Doris, Paige, Redmum etc. over the next few days to play catch-up.

Good to have you back! Hope you've fully recovered and took the opportunity to spend some time pampering youself and watching lots of soap operas.

Thanks CatGirl, I'm well recovered. Unfortunately got to spend lots of time watching telly but have to say, daytime tv ain't the Utopia I expected, in fact it's shite!

But it's great to be back. Just have to get into my blogging again and seriously need to catch up on my fave blogs. Have to go back thru yours to get the full story on Mr. Sweaty!

Welcome back. Gall bladder surgery is no joke!

I'm glad you managed to get the keyhole though, it does seem much less invasive. Both my sister and I had surgery last summer (for different ailments) and she had keyhole while I had the more traditional rip-er-open-and-then-sew-er-up method. My sis was home the same day and recovered quickly, I was almost 10 days in hospital and took a lot longer to heal.

So long live keyhole.

Do take it easy though, give yourself a chance to heal. Glad to see you back!

I often wonder what happens to other bloggers for the rest of the time. Blogs are such tiny windows into people's lives and sometimes it is good to get away from both reading and writing them!

Glad to hear to hear that overall you feel so much better. Well done.
