Yeah, did that. About twenty minutes later I had 15 people looking. Then someone said, "what are you looking at?" I said "Nothing, I have a stiff neck" and walked away....

John, that reminds me:

Mother and Father Hedgehog discussing the sad death of their youngster:

Mother: "I thought you said you had given him road safety training"

Father: "I did, I covered the look both ways and only cross when the road was clear"

Mother: "and what about when a car comes whizzing round the corner?"

Father: "standard drill, get between the near side and off-side wheels and roll into a ball, don't move until the danger has passed"

Mother: "and what about Reliant Robins?"

made me smile anyway Smile

A cornering Reliant Robin is usually on two wheels - the hedgehog may have a chance! Smile

Only if the Robin has the front wheel in the air - now there's a thought, wheelies in a Robin! :0)

But would the hedgehog have enough time to get out of the way if the Reliant was doing 100mph?

No, but if it stuck its foot out it could trip it over (Monty Python style)!

I'm not superstitious - I know the universe is out to get me and there's nothing I can do about it Smile so far I've been...

- knocked down by a police car
- knocked down by a hanglider
- had my toes broken by an old lady's shopping troller (on Xmas Eve)
- almost killed by an exploding birch tree
- knocked down several times by those go karts pensioners use to get around town

Now you could say I should watch where I'm going but I do (experience has taught me that) - all of the above (bar the shopping trolley) hit me in the back!

5 years ago today I broke my femur.....
For the 2nd time in two weeks.

First time was in Kenya, had a 7 hour op out there to fix it. 10 days in hospital.

The Worlds favourite airline made me get up out of my wheelchair in heathrow, tripped fell and did it again!
Another op in London to remove all the previous metalwork and put new stuff in.

Unlucky? Me? that was break no 13 Wink

Only took a year to walk again Wink

Still I'm not bitter *twitch* *twitch* Wink

I'm not superstitious but I didnt leave the house tonight - Ulster rugby didnt *need* another photographer!
