    A close shave and a lucky escape

    Just popped out to get the nrs a bar of choc.
    On way home on motorcycle,half a mile from home a dog ran out from nowhere.It's owner and his drinking buddies lifted me, saved bike and offered me lift/grog.

    Braked ,skidded to the ground , lots of cuts and bruises , luckily me dog and passers by unhurt.

    I had a crash helmet as always and was only doing about 20mph, but wearing shorts and short sleeve shirt.

    I have survived a sinking yacht a KL hotel Fire and Indian crash landing and several major deadly car wrecks so have few brains left to damage.

    Made me realize I was very lucky no car, truck or bus was following,

    I need to make merit a new will and set all my affairs in order again as I realize we're here today and gone tomorrow. Thank you Green man.
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    Mate, you've been falling off bikes since I've known you.
    I'm surprised you're not used to it by now.
    No drama.

    Glad to hear you're okay.


    Road Rash. Will hurt more in the morning.

    Best start drinking now.




    Target Fixation, if something jumps/pulls out (Ooer missus) in front of ya, get yer eyes off it and onto where you can avoid hitting it, if possible.

    If not, a quick turn to religion may help.

    Hope ya heal soon.


    Remember, non fatal accidents are good for us every now and again. Helps build awareness, even if it does mean shopping for new underwear and a box of band-aids.

    Tell the missus the doctor prescribed 3 blowjobs a day for 5 days.

    2 car accidents and 1 farming accident. Survived by chance. Was sitting on the other side of car after shifting seats just before. On a farm was sitting in the front of a front end loader and fell out and for some reason I rolled away from the tyre. Probably should be dead. God must like me but not enough to give me lotto.

    No one likes skid marks.

    Get those wounds clean.

    LT's idea above is solid.
