The Best Laid Plans ...

As Robert Burns famously said - "The best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men, Gang aft agley ..." which is most commonly translated, "The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry ..."

Joe vividly illustrated that for us today! We took the kiddos to Jeff's parents' house last night in anticipation of our departure to Tennessee to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. Thankfully we did not plan to leave until tomorrow since this afternoon I got an apologetic phone call from Cheryl letting me know that Joe had wrecked his bike and gashed his chin on the bike's handlebars. She thought it would probably need stitches. She was right! I drove out there and picked him up, taking him to the local urgent care facility.

He was pretty nervous, as he didn't remember the last time he needed stitches. Anyway, Joe is a brave soul and five stitches later he's doing much better!

Warning: Graphic-ish "before" shot to follow!

Bless his heart.
