My photo
Having a large Scottish heritage that migrated from England into Canada to Maine and other states. I am from a family of 9. Six girls and 3 boys. My dad died young when I was about 8 years old. I have 4 children and 3 step children with the great joy of 20 grandchildren. I worked in financial institutions and accounting for many years. Now I sew and make lots of stuffed animals and many other things. I'm a grandmother that has years of sewing in a wide variety of catagories. Photography has become one of my passions over the years. Nature that God has presented us is one of the greatest to photograph. My family and pets hate to see me with a camera in my hands. The bug took hold at Christmas time taking photos of my children in front of the tree. That became a tradition. Then you have family gatherings, vacations, grandchildren and the list could go on.

Attack by a ceiling light glass globe isn't much fun

Attack by a ceiling light glass globe isn't much fun. While filling my washing machine today, I felt something hit my head and land on the dryer. It was such a shock I didn't realize what had happened until I saw it in the plastic wash dish I keep on the dyer for lint and used dryer sheets.

The glass globe fell five feet plus before stricking my head and I guess you would say bouncing to the dryer. Amazingly it didn't break. My head has a knot on it and hurts. I didn't get dizzy or knocked out, so I figure I'll be fine. Will watch for other symptoms as the week goes by.

The size is about 8 inch across and 3-4 inch high and heavy. We were supposed to take it down and replace it with a close to ceiling over 5 years ago when we moved here but hadn't got around to it. Needless to say it was done today. We put that one into a bathroom that needed more light. It was replaced by a close to ceiling kind we already had.
Do you see the door corner to the left? That has hit the previous light every time opening to get detergent or dryer sheets, etc. Probably loosened the screws to the globe and didn't know it. Can you imagine all those years and the one split second it let go, I was standing under it! The noise was so loud my husband heard it outside where he was working in the yard. He thought it was one of the cats jumping on something until I went outside to tell him what happened and ask him to look at my head to make sure it wasn't cut. Nope, just a lump rising.
