Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

06/06/2005: Weekend Warriors Beware....

Now here's something I can relate to this week...

"With summer close at hand, we all tend to be more active and spend time in our favorite recreational pursuits. That's why this is National Safety Month a time to remember to play it safe to prevent warm weather activities such as rock climbing and boating from becoming tragic.

Even everyday activities can lead to accidents.

Nearly 550- thousand people are injured on bicycles annually, along with 104- thousand on skateboards, 92-thousand on trampolines and 88-thousand on playground equipment. Lawnmowers hurt another 88-thousand yearly.

But the largest number of Americans suffer injuries simply going up and down the stairs in their homes more than one million a year."

[Courtesy of US News Wire.]

....Given my recent "klutz" activity of merely stepping off the curb in front of Café Francisco on the final day of my Memphonian "Mom Holiday." I severely pulled my calf muscles behind my right knee (OUCH) and needed a wheelchair assist to make it through the Memphis airport and crutches here at home. [So, I had to *miss* National Trails Day and *skip* the hiking. :-( ]

But not to worry - the Wonderful Magicians (Dr. G and Dr. T) have worked their craft and I've gotten better each day. I'm even ambulatory once again without crutches. Hip-Hip-Hooray!!!

So, Beware of them Summer Accidents anyway -- all you "weekend warriors." LOL
