Good Morning one and all,

Sorry that I have left my 'Silly Sunday' upload a little bitter longer than one would have liked, but the last 36 hours have not been really good. I had rather a large seizure last night whilst sitting on my bath-board, and I ended up being stuck in the bath, "Splashing about quite merrily". Julie quickly popped into the bedroom to grab her smalls, and threw them in to allow the generated agitation to give them a thorough cleansing, "it did make me laugh"... Any way back to all seriousness, I ended up with three rather pretty paramedics, draped over my somewhat athletic physique trying get me out of my some uncomfortable predicament. My big toe on my right foot was stuck about 2/3 of the way up the spout. Mt left foot was behind my right ear, and has for my, arms, "Let's just say the lovely young female paramedics, went leaving with a smile on their faces?". After about twenty minutes of calming me down, and a further fifteen minutes, with the use of an inflatable device they finally managed to get me out. "Hooray" they all shouted, as I began to lick my wounds. With the aid of my wife I returned to the comfortable slumber of my bed, and slept through to this rather glorious morning.

"Oh what it is to be alive"

Hope you all have a great day, for me, I have been told to just rest, and re-geberate my batteries, as I am off to Kings College tomorrow to undergo an 'Angiogram'.

Regards Nathan

A wonderful image and great poem, Nathan Smile. Sorry to hear about your 'rather rough' night, but no doubt you have given the three paramedics something to smile about today Grin Carol

Pigeons on chimney pots make the best of subjects especially when combined with an apposite poem! Excellent imaginative work Nathan. I'm so sorry to hear of your troubled evening but happy that you can recount it with a little humour. Smile Good luck tomorrow and HSS for today!

Only you can turn a serious seizure into something to make us cackle, Nathan Grin I'm so sorry to hear about the seizure but your sense of humour cuts right through it and I'm so glad your spirit hasn't been shaken by the event.

All the best with the angiogram today!

Wonderful image and poem Smile
