i've been remiss on blogging this year's trip to new hampshire, so i'll try to give some snapshots of the past week. and no, i don't have aspirations of becoming a famous poet...capital letters take too much effort when one's left arm is in a cast...but i get ahead of myself.

family reunion this year was to partially celebrate a particular landmark birthday of mine along with just taking time to get the family back together for a few (way too short) days. i quite enjoyed creating a reunion-05 video as well as a re-collective video of my life and friends to show. in like i got to enjoy their re-collective of me. (alright...that's a little on the perfunctory side but my arm is hurting at the moment and its slow typing this way...oh yeah...that again)...

...just a sec...be right back...

phew...it may take a few minutes to kick in...anyway, i'll try to fill in some details a little later on...but, saturday i got out in-line skating with one of my nephews and was having a great time until we passed by this empty skate park. it hard ramps large, medium and small as well as some half pipes and quarter pipes.

(caution--famous last words follow) "gee john (my nephew) , the park is empty at the moment, lets try some of these...it could be fun" (end famous last words...sigh...no...very very deep sigh)

i met my demise on the bottom of the medium quarterpipe...the emts where quite good and the ride to the er short.

my helmet really minimized any direct cranial damage but the face got pretty scraped up. the wrist guards kept my wrist joints from being shattered...so instead, just the left tibia and fibula got "mushed" just short of the wrist which required a reduction and is currently in a plaster splint...resting on my lap...hurting...(much better a tibia break i would pose than the wrist joint itself) but on to more important things...

it's been great seeing everyone again this year...it's way too long between chances to visit and catch up on things. it's been a special time. so today people begin to depart and it starts getting quiet again...sigh...

more later...
