Bike Blunders 2

One thing you do not want to do on a bike is hit an animal, you’ll get more hurt than it will. One night I was riding to a girlfriend’s house, at the top of Red Hills, and in the middle of a straight stretch of road, a puppy wandered directly into my path. Swerving wasn’t an option at my speed, so I jammed on both brakes, screeching to a halt, inches away from the cowering little thing. I reached down, picked him up and gently deposited him over the fence, to his anxiously mewling mum.

Two hours later I was returning along the same stretch of road, still smiling from an enjoyable interlude with said girlfriend, when the same stupid puppy decides, again, to play with my headlight. This time there was no way I could stop in time, so I braced myself, and waited for the impact. Which, fortunately, was no more than a thud-thud-wobble and on we go. The poor little thing, he just wouldn’t learn.

Damage: One dead puppy.

He has a job as a writer, but he hasn't quite mastered keeping track of the tales.... smile

Yep, 4 wheels does handle bounce better. A dog ran out of a gap going down towards sugar mill before Hubbards. Thump on the front wheel, look at animal spin and drop in the mirror. Still there on the way back.

The tale-teller's art, my friend, rests on repetition: he tells and retells his tales, modifying here, embellishing there, fine-tuning. Ya dig? Sorry y'all have to be my captive audience, especially the repeats lol!

Thanks Sliceman, you spur me on!
