    The difference between adventure and adversity is your state of mind.

    Left femur broken 4 inches below the hip, missed a blind corner on my XT 500 Yamaha

    Broken ankle, Ankle went POW! got up and delivered Pizza's the rest of the night on it, Dr. noticed it years later.

    Broken nose, collison while playing softball, nose laid over on my cheek.

    2nd broken nose had tow truck tire blow up and hit me in the face when I bent over to check pressure.

    Crushed bone in right hand, Dr. called it a boxer break.

    Crushed last joint on left hand (ring finger), now joint doesn't bend anymore it's stiff.

    Oh, and in excess of 100 stiches in various places, over the last 63 years. How's that for Data!

    There are two kinds of people. Those more knowledgeable about you on a subject, and those less. Sometimes, you think you know who's who, but you're wrong.

    So if we want the floggings to continue we need to work on lowering morals?
