Saturday:) St. Francis vs Hail Storm

21 Mar

When you go through storms in your life, you can either be pitiful or powerful, but you can’t be both. Your attitude determines your victory…
Nishan Panwar


We had a couple of severe hail storms and frigid temps in the last couple of months. Now, with Spring finally here, I went out in my back yard to see how many shrubs, plants or bushes I may have lost. I’m afraid a few didn’t make it.

I usually say a little prayer to St. Francis to protect the creatures great and small during a storm, but I failed to say a prayer FOR St. Francis. I have a very old plastic statue out in my back yard. My mom gave him to many years ago, and he has traveled with me from home to Home. He has weathered many storms.

As you can see, poor St. Francis has sustained a serious head injury, brain damage, perhaps a concussion.

Now, the decision is, do I attempt brain surgery or should I purchase a new St. Francis?

    Maybe some kind of calking or patch kit. Or just make him a hat.

      I looked at the fragile cranium. I could try patching it, and I thought of putting on a hat, then better yet, a little Golden Notre Dame Helmet. I may have one up in Joe’s treasures that I still have in the guest room. He went to Notre Dame,class of ‘03. I’ll keep you posted.

        Or a monk’s outfit complete with hoodie.

    It would have to be a delicate repair, because I would believe the plastic has become very brittle over the years. How about giving him a cloth head covering of some sort?

      I’m thinking of a repair, perhaps with some of that cloth they use for casts, or car repair. Or maybe just put a Notre Dame gold helmet on him to protect him in the future.
