    Running from littledogs

    Was getting chased by three little dogs and wasn't watching where I was going. Ended up in a dry canal compounding a rib injury and causing two more. I'm still walking and working but it hurts something fierce sometimes. Kinda feel stupid.

    got any dumb stories or rib care tips to make me feel better?

    I got knocked down by a squirrel once.
    Was road biking, going around a corner, squirrel ran out apparently trying to go between my wheels. Ran over him with the back; squirrels are more slippery than dry pavement, I now know. Back wheel skid more than I could account for and down I went.

    Feel better?

    I OTB'd myself once, I got a little air and grabbed the front brake for the ride down. whoops

    A friend and me were messing around another time, we each got 1 try to flip each other off the bike by shoving a broomhandle between the spokes as we rode by. The outcome was 2 boys that know better.

    Only animal story I gots is the dog that chased me one too many times, he chased me 100yards one direction and I turned around and chased his fury butt back home-tail between his legs.

    Nice replies. I do feel better. Made it through my local trails last weekend so it think I'm healing up fine. Helped seeing my buddy eat it off a six foot drop while my broken a$$ made it. Lol
