Sorry to hear about your wife's injury Pete. Hope she recovers well!

Comment by Aaron Ball on September 22, 2014 at 9:03pm
Ouch, poor Joan. Although you've probably got a better chance of getting away now. Once she has the boot on, she might be able to catch you :)

Ah David, so you have met the offending dog, Snowy. Joan has a some pain for which Mersyndol is being used. I'll pass on your regards. 

Comment by David on September 22, 2014 at 8:30pm

Sorry to hear that Pete. I hope Joan is not in too much discomfort. Please send her my Regards. We chatted at the Pushies show re dog owners, 'bents and bike clothes.

Oct 25-26 is also a tentative yes for me.

My wife Joan fell over in the front yard on Friday while admonishing the daughter's dog for stealing a shoe from the shoe rack. Result - undisplaced fracture of the lateral malleolus, i.e. broke her ankle at the distal end of the fibula. Ouch! Back splint cast for 10 days then a boot for 8 weeks. Luckily no surgery required. So, to go riding at the moment means I have to have someone at home on "Joan watch" because of her limited mobility. Once Joan has the boot on and is mobile, I'll might be able to get away.

Comment by Terry Burn on September 22, 2014 at 6:52pm

I'm a tentative 'yes' for the 25-26 Oct.
