Tinker had a problem last night. He became very frantic when Bill tried to put him away with the toys.

Diagnosis was a broken neck.

Moral of the story: If you act like a 'Tinker Toy' be prepared to suffer the consequences.

When a guy is named Tinker but isn't allowed to live up to it, heck, that's gotta be rough! Hm. Perhaps some sandpaper is in order. Lol!
Great fun. Enjoyed that.
Oh poor Tinker!
What's in a name? In this case, a bit of identity crisis.

Fun microfiction, Jim.
Tinker Toys have it pretty rough indeed.

Have a terrific day. :)
Oh poor Tinker!
Hi Jim ~ ~ Poor Tinker got his neck broken. Have to take him to the Tinker hospital.
Glad you enjoyed the jokes and flowers, and I doubt we will get the snow that New Zealand got.
Thanks to Mrs. Jim for the name Schizanthus - I recognized it when I saw it, but it will still be Poor Man's Orchid as that is easier.
I liked the Grade 2 Q and A about
"Life is too short to wake up with regrets. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the ones that don't.
Take good care of that knee. Regards, Merle.
Ooh, that's rough--a broken neck for acting like a kid's toy. Maybe there was more to it--a bad-a** attitude?
If only Tinker had taken it like a man....LOL! Good one Jim!
Glad to see the knee is progressing nicely. You'll be kicking footballs in no time.
Jim, I've been reading about your knee surgery and I'm glad to know that went well and that you are progressing nicely!! Glad to see Adi is still watching over you!!

You take care of yourself and continue to mend nicely!! Say Hi to Mrs. Jim!!
