A Close Call and The Final Call

WOW, what a weekend!  What started as a fun, playful weekend changed in the blink of an eye and forever changed my life and the way I look at things!  The Knight and I went on a Memorial Run on Saturday but somehow got separated from the group which could have been a deadly mistake for us!  We had a close call on the bike but are both fine!  Somehow he managed to keep us from laying it down!  All I could think about was the Diva and let me tell you, I cried........hard!!  I have NEVER been so scared in my entire life as I was then!  When we got home, I hugged the Diva and cried some more!  Sleep has been sparse and when I do sleep it is fitful with lots of waking moments!  But wait, it gets worse!

We went to church on Sunday and when I got home I got the call that my BFF, Maggie, had lost her boyfriend, Brian, in a motorcycle accident involving alcohol!  I cried hard, again!!  It was Brian's first Saturday off in a while and he was out with friends and he missed the curve and, well, you know the rest!  He had been drinking!  In fact, he was getting ready to head to his class reunion and suddenly it was over for him!

I was in shock!  I could not believe all the events of Saturday!  I could be the one that was being prepped for burial (horrible thought but true!)!  No, I have not been back on the bike and I am not sure that I will be able to do it!  We will just have to wait and see!  For now, I am thankful to be alive and trying to comfort my friend, whose life if forever changed!

Having a scare on a bike forever changes your views of riding. My brother and I had a scare a very long time ago and I'm not ever really comfortable on a bike again. I think you have to wear the proper gear and get back on soon or you won't ever do it. Not everyone dies when they ride, Jo, and you are going to be okay. Get back in the saddle, chicky.

Hugs to you. You are gonna be okay.

Very scary indeed. I would not be able to get back on...but motorcycles scare me in the first place. I am glad you are OK!! Sorry about Brian!

I can't even imagine what you went through with all that. A motorcycle mishap in High School cured me of any desire to pursue that activity.
