only child seeking attention

Since I now have the biggest bruise of my entire life on my leg, I figured I should share.

In case this doesn't arouse enough sympathy, I have one on the other side of my leg too:

It's going to be hot tomorrow, so I think I'll wear shorts to work.  When co-workers say, "What happened to YOU?" I'll tell them about my experience breaking a bucking bronco at age 60, and how I climbed right back on.  Oh, it's going to be a GOOD day tomorrow.  ROFL.

Oh my gosh... what a woman you are! I don't think I could have gotten back on the same horse... but then you are much younger than Iam.. ( I'm 68) my bones ache just from doing 5 hours of gardening this morning... I hope you have fun at work tomorrow but I also am hoping "ALL" your bruises get better quickly. Take care now, Please.  Sandra

And the guilt piles ever deeper upon my shoulders.  I know I didn't tell you to ride him, but for heaven's sake...MY horse did that!

Ouch!! Have a ball at work, and embellish your heart out!! rich

Major ouch!  I wouldn't be walking!  And then I'd probably have to milk it for a few days - you are an amazing woman!  My hat is off to you.  If you want sympathy, you have mine for sure!  Blessings, Penny

I must say, you look rather patriotic! Good grief woman, You are a tuff cowgirl! How about don't say anything at work and if they ask you about it, just look at them in the eye and yell, "OH, I can't talk about it!!!" and pretend to cry. That ought to get 'em.  lol   Anne   p.s. For a joke, I think I'll have Doc come in and say, "Good Lord look what Mosie's tick bite turned into. I betcha he'll go find his glasses and look. haaa   Anne

Oh my gosh, Mo.  I didn't even think about you getting bruised at all when you feel off that Brat!  And to see these pictures were a shock for sure.  Are you hurting at all?  Please be careful, and you must have some very strong bones not to have broken anything when you fell off that horse.  Praying for  your quick recovery.  And yes, milk it at work tomorrow for sure.........Sam

Oh my Lord Mosie!!!!! I can not believe that you got back up on that horse after that! I swear, I bet your leg hurts like the dickens!
Did you got to the doctor???
Hope you are ok....and feeling some better.
Take care of yourself,
Carlene

I know you are made of tough stuff, but see your doctor. I worry about blood clots and junk like that. Take care of yourself!

Every other entry said Oh My God and I have to follow suit.  OH MY GOD!!!!!!

If there ever was a sympathy hurt, I am hurting with you.  It's gonna look great when it starts turning yellow.

I'm so thankful that you are only bruised and not broken.
