Two close calls too many!
Monday, June 17, 2013
I've been suffering with my shoulder for a couple weeks now and decided I had to make the 45 minute drive to see my Chiropractor. I love my chiro. He's been working on me for about 12 years now. If it were not for him and his massage therapist (a 70+ year old Japanese man who specializes in Chinese torture techniques) I know I would not be moving today. Anyway, he told me to come'on in and he'd fit me in. He really cracked me up.
On my ride home, I had a couple really close calls. .. . you know, the sphincter slamming kind. The first was when a guy in a pickup truck (probably on his cell phone
) took a curve too wide and came over into my lane. I was on my Spyder and that probably saved me cos he was only inches from my front fender before he swerved back into his lane. If I'd been driving my car, he would have nailed me for sure.
The second one was a deer standing ON the fog line in a blind corner. The guy on a Harley in front of me nearly laid it down trying to move away from it. All I could do was aim towards the direction I wanted to go, duck my head and drive on through. Thankfully, the deer didn't move.
There were two more instances of absolute STUPIDITY that didn't involve me personally. In two separate occurrences, miles apart, impatient drivers passed other cars in no passing areas at insane speeds forcing oncoming traffic off the road. It really makes me hate to have to drive anywhere anymore!
So, I am very thankful to be home again safely.
I did good this weekend and today so far as my nutrition. Can't really work out like I need to until this shoulder thing calms down. But I am doing what I can.
Haven't had a chance to catch up on what's going on with you . . . but I'm looking forward to hearing how everyone's doing.
Time for me to get horizontal!!!
