Continuing a Story

............so I went out on a mountain bike ride. The day was sunny, the air cool and crisp, the sky bright blue.

We were talking and having fun. All of a sudden something happened and I was going over the handlebars aiming at the ground. I landed under the bike because one foot didn't come unclipped.

I pushed the bike off me and started getting up. My riding buddy was upset, wanting to know if I had broken something! A few years ago she had broken her clavicle badly on a fall and a year ago another friend had gotten broken bones and a lot of scrapes from a road bike fall. She was upset and I was wondering just what had happened, but all of my parts seemed to work as did the bicycle!

This happens to me at least once a year! I thought I'd made it through this year, but my record is intact.

I got up and kept riding because, to not do so, can make it more painful, got to keep the blood flowing to ease the pain.

When I got home I realized that I had jammed the left pinky finger so I iced it. One of these days my, tough as nails body is going to give me a reality check!

so.......to finish the story, all is well and I can still use the computer. That's great news because soon Santa is going to bring me a new one! I've had trouble for a few months and a tech friend has tried to help, but I just can't take it anymore and a decision was made. It's nothing fancy, but it's a big upgrade from what I've been struggling with and having to constantly reboot. I'm awaiting the delivery truck and maybe my tech friend can help me get it all set up in a reasonable amount of time.

I will never grow up and I want to keep learning about this stock photography stuff while I stay young.

Carry on, everyone, and keep posting your hints and tutorials, I need them all!

Hi Marilyn,
Thanks, I hope to inspire. I rode up a mountain today and didn't fall, maybe I was just off balance that day.LOL

Thanks Richard. I've often thought about how to bottle the energy. Haven't gotten the formula right yet. Have a friend at the CDC thinking about it with me. They want to pull my plug and see what's inside!!??

I'm sitting here right now, frustrated! My PS3 didn't seem to load correctly and now tomorrow I have to try to get some help from support. Oh well, I'll just go have a snack and read.
If YOU can't make enough for a flight, I guess there's no hope for me!

Well, Susan, thanks for invitation. I would really love to help, but I just can't imagine when my monthly DLs level would rise so high, so I could afford a ticket over the ocean. And maybe another one back too ;). I guess you gonna have crashed your new computer by then and I could help to set up the next one. Maybe? ;)) I'm sure you gonna have your systems work. You just seem to be one of those people who can fix everything. Good luck!

Hey, Maigi, I might need you to come get my computer perfect for me!

Goodness, Kathleen, I think you need to come ride with me. I've had so many close calls that I wonder when my number will come up.(I've already had one knee fixed and don't want to hurt that one again.) I try to stay in top physical condition so that my muscles will protect my bones when I crash!!! Road rash and bruises take a long time to heal, too. I still have a sensitive place on my (excuse me) butt from a fall walking my bike across a large rock in a creek. I'm not real graceful!!! I ride road and mountain and have had crashes on both, so I don't play favorites.

I am glad you are ok. I was riding my sister's bike at her home on a gravel road and I was coming down a hill and wiped out on the stones and went flying. I had stitches in my hand and on my face. I banged both my knees and have been in physical therapy for a month with no improvement and now I have to have an MRI this week on the worst knee. Insurance will not pay for both. My hand was so swollen I could not use the computer at all. I also did something to my right forearm and could not even pick up a glass let alone my camera. They finally gave me a cortisone shot that took that away. I sure hope my knees go back to normal. This happened in Aug. No more bikes on gravel roads.
So be careful and enjoy your new computer. :)
