(Well, side saddle at least.) After my last
published article posted on October 21, 2018,
I had a goodly spill down a portion of my home
stairs, in which I quickly accumulated a broken
clavicle, a fractured scapula and two broken ribs
(all on my left side).
Healing should take 4-8 weeks. I begin my third
week of healing on November 7. No operations
are scheduled (my specialist thinks I'm too old.
He may be right, since I turned 80 this past
This was one of those accidents that could have
tuned out much worse than it did. I suppose I was
fortunate not to have broken my neck or made
mush of my cranium.
I have been blessed by all of my concerned family members, many church and non church friends,
and by the prayers of many.
"I'm back in the saddle, again
Out where a friend is a friend
Where the longhorn cattle feed
On the lowly jimson weed
I'm back in the saddle, again"
