|Barry's new tights|
|just a sample|
I guess you are wondering why this post is titled: "Robinhood, Man in Tights" Well, let me explain:
|James of Sherwood|
|A very Happy Birthday|
So, what would Sir Barry of Sherwood like for his Birthday? A new pair of tights, of course. As it turned out, he did wear them with pride for the party.
My last appointment with the Doctor and final x ray was on 10 March. Sleepless in Windermere, as I lay awake the night before hoping he would clear me for skiing at 5 weeks post fracture. After a long night hoping in silence, the morning finally approached. 0800....x ray....wait....Then.....YES, I can ski. But not without warning. There is still a great risk for re fracture IF I fall the same way. First of all, the story behind the injury begins with purchasing my new boots. The boots are fabulous and give great ankle support (one reason why I purchased this specific boot) BUT. The ski tech reset my bindings and DIN. Personally, I do not like anyone fiddling with my equipment. Lusti's Pro shop is the ONLY shop I trust with my life to handle my ski equipment other than Bob. Being a bit suspicious about my settings. I asked Lusti to have a quick look. Yes, my DIN was set way too high. The ski did not release when it snagged a snow snake. Lesson
learned. Either way, I am now skiing every day as my confidence builds. Each day is more adventurous than the last. Skiing with Bob again is the highlight of my day. It is good to be back.

|A magical evening|
I'm almost done....
|Barry, Sue, myself & Bob|
This is a yearly event for Bob and myself. We packed a lunch, a few cold B.C. beers and headed up the mountain to the springs. I could not fulfull my anual dip in the river as the rocks are too unstable for my unstable ankle. Barry took my place as he made the chilling plunge. The healing sulfer waters excaping the hard rock of the mountains are healing, but smelly. A shower was in need when we returned home. Bedtime came early for us last night.
Goodnight as tomorrow we will be skiing in the sunshine and spring snow conditions. Yipee!!!!!!!!!!!!
