If it doesn't kill will make you.....?

Determined to initiate the long foreboding process of regaining honor lost, despite chronic melancholia—I forced myself to leave my convalescence within the safe confines of my humble abode to mount me trusty Pugsley, committed to a two hour training ride of substance. Not more than shouting distance out from home I encountered an icy patch, went down like a ton of bricks, jamming my shoulder. Stunned, I laid there wallowing in self-loathing for a few moments, gathered myself, and quietly wept as I limped my treacherous bicycle back home, where I climbed back onto the Couch of DISHONOR!

Dear Reader: If you are a God-fearing man, pray for my soul….


  1. OUCH Old Man!! I feel your pain. Stinks to be old and fall, I don't bounce like I used to. JP

  2. ...or maybe not. Broken bones are common for a man of your years. As well as loss of continence, inability to stay up past 6pm, and a strong desire to watch "Matlock". We know that you experience 2 of those 3 already.

    See you next weekend, should be a of fun!

  3. Oh, good lord. This is getting uncomfortable to watch/read.

  4. "Turned around and went back to the couch"??? I'm with Jeremy on this one, yet I cannot turn away. Remember, 'mall walking' seems pretty safe.

  5. Just be careful not to pull out in front of those ole lady mall walkers, they will run you over.

    hope your feeling better soon


  6. "...Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved heaven and earth, that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."


    Bind your wounds and gird your loins.

  7. I think that maybe Charlie has hired a nurse that is quite comely, and perchance is trying to give her reason for comforting him.

  8. Good lawd, I have been severely traumatized just reading this.

  9. Charlie,
    Please email me your home address, since I have something I want to mail you.
