signing in, again

Mmmm, seems that some readers were a bit concerned that hadn't 'posted' anything for a while.

Firstly; wasn't aware that i had any 'obligation' to post anything or 'tell' anyone outside of my immediate vicinity my state of health or mind.

However, thanks for being interested.

So ..

Body is now almost fully repaired after a rather stroppy horse decided to drop me on the turf (twice) two weeks ago (dunno about my 'state of mind' - probably remains the same).

Only minor damage to body - two badly skinned knees (reminder to self, don't try to ride stroppy horse wearing short trousers) ... and it's probably not a good idea to hang onto the reins while being dragged around the paddock.

State of mind? OK, think i, yer not allowed to defeat me - so, once horse settled - back in the saddle.

Walk, trot, walk, trot. OK, who's in charge here; canter. NO, dickhead. Canter does NOT mean gallop. Another bittuva battle aaand - sheesh - saddle slips sideways (will have to have a serious chat with the 'groom'. - or double check for myself).

Found self on the turf again with a ripped hamstring ligament in left thigh (hey, if Michael Clarke can get one from cricket, am in good company ... heh).

Yep, found self with a serious "mobility" problem - but there are a few people in the vicinity who 'helped out' for a couple of days (brought food, couple of hours chat and games of backgammon).

And yep, am now back to full mobility ( though guess that there are quite few people who still doubt my 'sanity' .... heh)

I can picture the whole scene and the sillyness of it all

I'm 69, no way I'm getting on a horse, they have a brain and it doesn't always agree with mine and I don't need five or six feet falls at my age.

If I'm going to fall off of something it'll be my chair after drinking to much that night and trying to take my pants off to go to bed. :-)

I was going to ask about pics...

Davoh said...

Wot, GG, of my knees in their current state? Will have to use 'photoshop' to airbrush the wrinkles.

Davoh said...

On the other hand, have booked another hour on a rather more plod-plod horse .. and will organise pics ... OK?

I believe the silly old bugger is being urged to continue this horse opera by the bit of crumpet he hires his nags from.

Davoh said...

Heh, Vestie .. was almost wondering if you were psychic with that comment - since i have, actually, recently organised some "reconstruction" pics of "me falling off horse" with an interesting female who "hires horses".

However, me being me at the moment - yer'll just havta wait t see what i mean ... heh.
