The very latest.

Hi, To anyone who still looks at this blog.
I will start with the developments in our lives.
Me, i have been X rayed and told my Hip joint is Bone to Bone but no operation until i lose 2.5 stones at least !!.
We are saving hard for our very last years at the Caravan (2012) season ticket , Season is March to Oct and is now £1,500 + Electricity, now i'm afraid were just pensioners so no money left.
Sue is fully recovered from both Hip & Arm Operations now. but has now started to suffer with her Arheritic back again.
We have just had (last Friday) an accident on our motorcycles (very low speed) which resulted in Sue damaging her new Hip, also severe laceration to her left arm which she has been told will take 6 weeks to heal. Initial X Ray on Hip joint shows no major bone or joint break but possible hairline fracture, (now confirmed by 3 more X Rays) which has left her in agony and needing to use crutches (Temporarily hopefully).
Me i  have cracked/broken 3 Ribs and made my Hip pain much worse plus minor abrasions and Bruises,i have never been in so much pain in all my life, i feel like a real wimp but no matter which way i turn i get pain, i have not been to bed at all since the accident, just cat napping sitting upright in a chair.Typical really as next week it is our weeks holiday in a Folding Camper at the "Great Dorset steam Fair"gotta play it by ear until then.
Now its a week later and just got back from Dorset, more bloody problems, the Mobility scooter we had been sharing to get around  the Fair cried enough on the second day, so as you can imagine we really didn't do half that we wanted to.
We both just feel we must have been terrible people in a former life, i'm not normally a moaner but have to admit that 2010 and 2011 have just not been good to us, roll on 2012.

Joke of the day.

  Paddy's in jail. Guard looks in his cell and sees him hanging by his
  "What the hell you doing?" he asks.
  "Hangin’ meself" Paddy replies.
  "It should be around your neck" says the Guard.
  "I tried dat" says Paddy "but I couldn't breathe"..

Oh BOB! You poor buggers...Ken often says he must have run over a Chinaman in a previous life. Not sure if you know the meaning of that - it may be an Aussie thing. Years ago before political correctness stopped jokes about ethnic people, we used to say it was bad luck to kill a Chinaman.
Anyway, it sounds like you and Sue must have slaughtered a village or two in your past lives!
Ken has been enjoying the jokes you've been sending (I have too of course), and he will be shocked to hear what has happened to you two. We ache in sympathy....I'll get some bike mags off in the mail this week, to cheer you up some.
