An interesting weekend turns into a crappy week.

Got a frantic call from Rhonda last night at 9PM. Our cat had fallen off a ledge above the stairs and fallen 12 ft down into the basement. She was crying and not using her front leg. I told Rhonda to call the vet to see what he said. His answering service paged him and he called back right away. He said Rhonda could take the cat to the pet ER if she wanted but he recommended just waiting till the AM when he could see her. Apparently cats can fall up to 30 feet before they will actually break something. Thats crazy! A 12 inch tall cat can fall 30 feet without any serious damage. I fell 3 feet off the top of my bike last fall and could barely move for days. She took the cat in this AM and the X-rays were negative so the vet put the cat on some anti-inflammatory's and had Rhonda lock her in a room so she wouldn't move around too much. A car wreck, the flu and an emergency trip to the vet all in a week. What's next?

Got in a nice tour de Green Valley today on the MTB. 3.5 hours with 40 mins of tempo. Legs felt pretty good but the hard tail was killing my back after the hard effort. Need to get in more core training methinks.

Too bad I'm going to miss it. I'm sure a lot of things like this will be said. "The bicycle is just as good company as most husbands and, when it gets old and shabby, a woman can dispose of it and get a new one without shocking the entire community"
