It Happend Last Week
He fell off the deck. Or more precisely down the deck step. He has become a pro at navigating steps. I don't know how it happened. I was carrying our strawberries ready for the freezer bags. He had gone up and down off the deck six or eight times that very afternoon. But this time, when my hands were full, he made one wrong move.
The step tried to help. It caught his forehead, slowing down the decent. The sidewalk with its little potholes caught the rest of his face. Smeared with strawberry he looked a complete fright! By now he is pretty much healed--the lump on his forehead is now yellow and the scabs have come off his nose and his lip.
