    Well, I'm at the emergency room. [​IMG]

    I got bored being at home so I decided to take off and go horseback riding. Something I haven't done in a while. It turned out to be a big mistake! I got on the horse and started out slowly, but then we went a little faster and before I knew it, we were going as fast as the horse could go. I couldn't take the pace and fell off, but caught my foot in the stirrup with the horse dragging me. It just wouldn't stop.

    Thankfully the manager at the Dollar General store came out and unplugged the machine. He actually had the nerve to take the rest of my change so I wouldn't attempt to ride the Elephant.

    I'll be fine. You know where to send gifts and get well cards

    Hope you recover soon.
    I recommend that you think about keeping your distance from the Whack-A-Mole game just to be on the safe side.

    Good Morning All and with a write-up as good as that to start any day which is sure a
    foot-stomper!!! Makes one want to do a bit of a story like that about something, even if
    just to entertain yourself..... I bet it is better hearing praise for your joking around than
    to hear expressions of feeling sorry for a real mishap...You've got an A+ from me for
    your efforts!!! Chief

    Was it because it was slippery from all the anti-bacterial soap they sprayed it with? Hope your recover fast. PS. Watch for tree limbs if you decide to go elephant riding when get out of the hospital.

    Well the other day Manny tried to pitch me anyway he could. I stayed on. Too bad I couldn't have unplugged him!
