First of all, I want to wish everyone a happy, healthy, and wonderful holidays and Happy New Year! I hope all of you have a great time with family, friends, and others special to you.
This will be a quick note, and you will soon see why.......
Take a look at the picture attached to this post. Yes, I really did break my leg playing soccer. So, this brings up the question: "Why, at my age, did I think I could still play soccer?" It's funny, but I don't feel like I'm getting older -- even though my body reminds me of this just about every day now. Age is nothing but a number -- until a person gets hurt! I'm posing with a baseball bat instead of a soccer ball because a dear friend of mine did some fast work on the picture to show my leg stuck out like this. Ouch! So, the reason this note will be short is it is still difficult for me to sit at the computer for any length of time. I think I'm going to have to start typing while standing up!
A soccer injury isn't a very "romantic" injury to report, so I think I should change my story to something like I broke my leg while saving some children from a burning building. Or, how about I threw myself in front of an out-of-control car to save an elderly person who was crossing the street? How about saying I hurt the leg while falling off an elephant? If you can think of a better story I can use, please send it along to me.
Again, Happy Holidays! And a happy and blessed 2018 for us all!
