You can take the GRITS out of Florida, but you can't take Florida out of the GRITS!

Bicycles and chunks of ice do not mix

Sam and I went for a bike ride today out in the Everglades. It was interesting...not 100% sure if where we were was part of the Nike Missle site or not...old buildings, one bunker...but nothing that really stood out as military. A mystery to further investigate. (Note: this was NOT the newly opened to the public Nike site inside the park boundaries!)

Well, my sweetheart up in PA also went for a bike ride today, but his day didn't end well. He rode through a tunnel that wound up having chunks of ice in it. He hit the ice and flew over the bike, breaking his elbow in several places. I just spoke to him. He is back home now (after midnight) with Percocet and crackers and bottles of water. He will need surgery, probably Monday or Tuesday?

Looks like I'll be flying out soon!

Well the bike riding portion sounded good, but ouch! Hope he heals quickly. :)

Wow, that must have been a shock - one minute you're peddaling along and the next you're on the ground with a trashed elbow! Poor guy.

I'm so glad you're doing well!
