OK I am DUMB

My Beautiful granddaughters
















I decided this ole 62 year old granny could teach kids to ride a two wheeler. Someone gave the girls one to ride here. I was so grateful, but now am kicking myself. I did teach the one twin and she is so excited!!! The other one is in cry mode cause she can't figure it out. I try to console her and rationalize, and she finally gets it. AT least she seems satisfied. Have I mentioned she IS quite a runner?
Well we decided the one would run and one would ride the bike and I would ride my bike! I got onto the tarmac and down I went. Whew that was an eye opener! So as not to scare the runner I get up and try again. Only to find myself back on the tarmac! This little guy down the street who is in a wheelchair comes out his door and yells you ok? Much to my embarrassment I am ok, I guess. The hip is hurting and the left knee is already a bright blue. BUT I have no difficulty walking. So I get myself up and say OK I'm done biking today lets ride in my new car. Then my dau #1 (disabled) says "be careful"

Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.
