plum texan: adventures in being me.

Still more progress, and going All In

(Nope, no new photos…all my photo mojo went to eBay last night.)

I’m now a full repeat past the original body chart on the Forest Canopy. With a couple of hands from Sharron at SnB tonight, I determined that the blocked wingspan would be approximately 40″. Only 25″ to go! (My personal wingspan is about 68″, and I figure a couple of inches less is OK.)

So tonight, mad props go out to:

– Sharron, for the aforementioned handiness;
Laura, for showing me in short, unpanicked, profanity-free fashion how to fix my profanity-laden eff-up (I’d missed a YO…it was the easiest fix ever);
– And Amy, temporarily to be re-nicknamed Panic Disabler Amy, for talking me down from a near panic attack incurred when I was – no exaggeration – nearly hit head-on by a Suburban on my way home from SnB.

No, I’m not kidding…yes, I’m mostly OK (if still a bit shaky even an hour later). I think I may have cashed in a couple of karma chips on this one. (If anybody can tell me how I earned them in the first place, please do, because I think this was pretty close to All In and I might need to restock.)

Anyway, thanks, y’all. Is it any wonder that I live for Thursdays? (Oh, jeez, no pun intended.)

  3. Yikes! What a scare — I assume the Suburban was going the wrong way? So glad you’re okay!
