Satan Claws

A rare photo of me thumb out of me arse.

Well, I picked up an early gift from my old buddy Satan Claws. Sonofabitch tripped me up on a trail run today and pitched me ass over teakettle.

Tore up the heel of my right hand and my right elbow, wrenched my left knee, and collected a couple other dingers here and there. I expect a few more will manifest themselves about the time I’m trying to get to sleep tonight.

Funny thing is, I didn’t really feel like running, but I did it anyway. Now I really don’t feel like running.

WIth Pat O’B’s bicep on the fritz it looks like the DogHaus is serving up a Paddy melt(down) for Christmas. Deck them halls, all y’all. Fa la la la la, la la, la, la.

    Well at least you didn’t tumble into a cholla! The bicep muscle, if you can call it that anymore, is doing much better. Just a mild strain, and nowhere near the whuppin’ Santa put on your ass. Just remember never offer young guys your services as a roadie. They always say yes and then tell you to take the heavy shit out to the van.

    Merry Christmas! And crap like that happens in the trump era! No stickery is a good thing.

    Ouch! Heal up quickly, PO’G. Running is dangerous. I only run when chased. I’ve got some sort of stomach bug. Can’t eat much, no appetite. Dinner tonight was a yogurt and a few rice crackers. Let’s hope we’re all feeling better in 2019!

    Ouch, fuck. Reminds me of the day during winter when I dumped the front wheel of the Stumpjumper into a rock crevasse and went ass over handlebars into a rock face of Bandelier Tuff. Thought I broke my arm and when I took off my jacket there was a lot of blood. Fortunately, only a deep bone bruise and a lot of lost skin.

    Get well soon. Ain’t exercise wonnerful?

    OUCH! Heal up fast my friend. I dodged a big bullet a couple of weeks ago, finding a cracked stem (on the bike, not me!) before it cracked all the way and caused a crack up for me.
    Bike’s all fixed up now and we had a nice ride yesterday, even meeting up with one of the wife’s colleagues by surprise as they had just arrived at their house-by-the-sea the same day.
    As they say here – Buona festa e tanti auguri!!!

    Merry Christmas all. Larry, are you guys still in Sicily? Is there any ash in your area from the Mt. Etna flank eruption?
    Patrick, did any other injuries surface during the night?
