Note to Self

When adding binder twine to the tomato trellises
at the top of the garden . . .

Do not accidentally kick the cylinder of twine. . .

For it will roll (very fast) downhill 
till something stops it.

I'm sorry, but this made me laugh so hard! I think that twine just wanted to see some of the world!

Mel said...

Thanks for the laugh, sorry you had to roll all that twine up again!

Ms. A said...

Thanks for the giggle, at your expense. Consider it your "extra workout".

Joan said...

What do the young ones say..LMAO ! Thanks for a chuckle on a wet day.

Desiree said...

Oh this is hilarious! You could easily win a prize for it! Superb photos of your beautiful surroundings. Thanks to that adventurous ball of twine :)

Ariadne's Thread gone wild in Carolina's hills? ;-)

Those pictures are unique, I can see a great art project there!

Merisi said...

P.S.: It does take an artist's mind to go get the camera in a situation like this!

Martin H. said...

Ahem...I'm not laughing...honestly!

Pat in east TN said...

I'm sorry Vicki, but I'm with everyone else on getting a good laugh over this, BUT only because that seems like something I would do!

Mama-Bug said...

Sounds like something I would do! Thanks for a wonderful laugh this morning Vicki!

Kath said...

Oh, boy. Something else for me to goof up! The list is getting 3 inch binder long. Sigh. At least this year we moved the tomato plants to a sunny spot.

Elora said...

Put binder twine in flat-bottomed bucket before heading out to tie up tomatoes!!!

I'm guessing you said; " DAMN " ! HA!

Brian Miller said...

wow...it um rolled out for a while there eh? oh this is something that would happen to me...

KarenB said...

Poor Vicki! But we obviously appreciate you posting it for our amusement. Thanks! Hope today is less fraught with things that make you swear.

Vicki Lane said...

So glad I could bring a little cheer! At time like this, one can only laugh. And say Damn (or something stronger) and reach for the camera.

An artist's mind... or a blogger's, Merisi.

This happened to my husband once with a roll of barbed wire -- even worse.

Good tip, Elora. Now to avoid kicking the bucket.

Barbara Rogers said...

Great to have a laugh with you this morning, with coffee as well!

Ellis Vidler said...

What fun. I'm still smiling, picturing the twine running down the hill and the poor gardener (you?) chasing it.

Thérèse said...

A chance for the twine not to have been green!! ;-))

sorry, sometimes the finger just don't match the brain...The string thing is very funny, started my day with a great laugh!

Jill said...

Oh no and Ha ha! My neighbor had a problem just like yours. Only it was a large round bale of hay. Barbed wire...I would hate to roll that one back up!

Jill said...

P.S. This is why we have to be extra careful with Bumble. Ha ha..

June said...

"...it will roll very fast" while you stand hapless, watching from the top of the hill..."
Been there, done that...or similar things.
No point in fussing. No matter what, y'just hafta go get it anyway...

Dear Vicki: Maybe the twine had a mind of its own! Sounds like this could be part of a "field day" exercise similar to the one legged potato sack race or the egg and spoon! Ya never know! Just seeing you running after this ball of twine has got me reeling with laughter! Good one Vicki!

Tammy said...

Too funny, Vicki! Probably not so much for you at the time, but it the pictures are priceless. I guess you are lucky it didn't end up in the bottom of a holler somewhere. Love the picture of the wasp in the previous post. Awesome.

Oh that is so funny when it happens to someone else! Brings to mind an old saying, "If you know you're going to laugh about it later...might as well laugh about it now." And I'll bet you did just that after a few well-chosen words.

Vicki Lane said...

I was the poor gardener all right, Ellis, but there was no way I could have chased that fast-moving object.

I've had a long writing day and will be around to visit tomorrow.

Merisi said...

Vicki,
I am sure glad you are a blogger with a camera and a great sense of humor. Priceless!
