I apologize for the misunderstanding.

Have a wonderful day.

It looks like we dodged a bullet. I'm glad it didn't linger. I'd hate to go through the '98 thing again.

Yeah that would tend to change your view of things... My OB/GYN when I was in WI had a similar experience, though he was out running at the time, in the late afternoon one winters day. When he came to, it was dark and there was snow falling on his face.

He gave up winter running and joined a gym... and having learned from his experience I stick to a slow hobble with the dog when we have to go out on ice, though I have been told I "fall well" and have pulled off some major ones with little damage to anything other than my pride, which was pretty battered to start with.

Neither of you broke anything, for which we can all be glad.

I'm still smitten that you think women are for all to enjoy. Not an exact quote, but I liked it just fine.

Wow! Looks like I missed a good one!! Not having a clue what you're all talking about, let me just say that it's always nice to know that regardless of what men think, WE hold the key! Of course, we let them think whatever they want!

And, nope, no ice here! We keep fluctuating between 40 and 75! Rain and sun.....depends on the day..........and the hour............
