Fate: my thought, exactly!

I only fell over with my hubby's bike the other day, rode into some mud, stopped all of a sudden, was hung with cameras at the time, and had to save those first (of course!), and his has this rod, you know, that makes the frame a real triangle (DO you know?) --- well, long story short: I did not get off in time and fell to the side, saving the cameras, so that rod pressed into my thigh --- the bruise was a real SIGHT!

Therefore:
"OUCH" again!

The rod is called a crossbar.

Hey!
I did NOT take a photograph of the inside of my thighs for you. Bruised or NOT bruised. You will not get to see this.
And I was on my own.
So hmph ... no other photographer around to capture that nice little fall for eternity (do you understand that and why I am grateful for that !?!?! :greenpbl: :lol: )

I'm not surprised he fell off it looks like someone left a "turn one photography" sign on the shale :lol: :lol:

Great timing though :thumbup:
