    OH yeah... do I know that one. I told the young English volunteer in the ambulance "You have the most beautiful eyes " and called the nurse in Accident and Emergency a Goddess...
    It's a perfectly normal reaction to the feeling that people are not falling in love with you quickly enough! (That is, immediately)

    Glad to hear you're on-the-mend.
    Take it real easy till the brain has got over being joggled about like a jelly (jello) in a box.
    Good thing we have a skull, innit?

    Btw DavidDuffield was saying in his Giro commentary the other day that helmets are about 98% air in teeny-tiny little bubbles all thru the foam (which is most of the 2%, the rest being paint and stickers)

    All you need is love...la-dee-da-dee-da...all you need is love!

    God love ya tlkiwi,

    I thank me lucky charms that you are (relatively) o.k. You are truly a good sport and generous to entertain us cycling fans.

    I hope you can take it easy for a few days and monitor for potential problems. You brought back memories of shining bright little lights in my patient's eyes.

    ~~~~~GOOD. LORD.~~~~~


    When you do it, you do it up right, eh?!? I'm voting for the holly crown decorated new helmet. Glad to hear you're here to tell the tale. That "T" is a keeper. I do think a bit better of the NHS now. Our adult happy meals are significantly less interesting or tasty. Heal up and let us know how it's going! L.

    *That's* an adventure. Holly stickers on helmet and bike, and hope everything is back rolling soon! HOly Holly, indeed!

    Well, at least you know how to make the most of trying to brain yourself

    Excessive warp speeds have been shown to rip the fabric of space time, so it is recommended that you go no faster than Warp 4 until your engines can be upgraded to the newer, less destructive models.

    Glad to hear you survived (mostly) intact. What a ride.

    What a crack up!

    I mean the way you told the story, of course ! So glad to hear you're all right. And that T does deserve a beverage or 6!

    Thank you for all your well wishes. I'm glad I could entertain with my tale of misadventure. I certainly enjoyed recounting it - had the giggles so badly by the time I'd finished writing that I couldn't get to sleep. I still can't believe that of all the plants I could have landed in I ended up in the prickly one.

    T and I have decided it is not safe for us to go riding together without adult supervision (after our previous outing she had to have x-rays to make sure she hadn't broken any ribs in a remarkable ditch dive)!!!

    I sure am glad your o.k. and well enough to write the funniest crash story I have ever read.

    Holy cow, Woman! You had me laughing like crazy and feeling quite guilty for doing so. I'm so glad you're all right. Keep us posted. I'll never hear that old Christmas carol, "The Holly and the Ivy" without thinking of you.

    soooooo

    What you're saying is that you didn't make it back to the carpark to meet those folks for lunch?

    I'm certainly glad you're ok b/c that story just made my day.

    You know, I sent a copy of my tale to the Giro distributors along with my crashed helmet and they've never cashed the cheque...

    Thanks for the hilarious tale of a major misadventure! Glad you're pretty much OK and can at least have a good laugh over it!
