Sympathy wanted

by Richard on July 19, 2010

I slipped down some stone steps while walking the dog this morning. Seemed all right at the time, but I ache all over now.

I’m just saying…

Sympathy sent via prayer and healing karma sent via carrier pigeon. Lemme know which gets there first.

A big cwtch from me for you, mate!

Richard, you are in my prayers. and no I do not believe in karma.


Richard 07.19.10 at 6:19 pm

Thanks Jeremy. I’ll be on the alert.

That’ll be a manly cwtch, I assume Kim? :)

Whilst I am far too crmudgeonly to offer sympathy as a rule but as you are the grandfather of British Methodist blogging I will send up a prayer for you and hope the pain is soon eased.

Kim and Richard cuddling. Awe ain’t that sweet. :)

We’ll the first century church “greeted each other with a Holy kiss.” I’m sure it was a “manly” one for the men and “womanly” for the women. :) So I guess it isn’t out the question within its proper context. :)

that’ll be old age then Rich?? ;o) best get stenna in*!!

* - other stair lift providers are available… probably…

I was nowhere in the vicinity at the time!

Get well soon.


Richard 07.19.10 at 9:07 pm

Thanks everyone. That outpouring has done the trick - feeling better already.

Jeremy - that carrier pigeon with the healing karma hasn’t arrived yet. As it doesn’t look like I’ll need it immediately, would you like me to send it back or may I hang on to it?

I thought Stenna provided cross channel ferries. Maybe they are another provider ;-)


Beth 07.19.10 at 10:15 pm

Oh, poor you :( It’s a shock to the system, isn’t it? But (if you’re like me) you don’t notice at the time because you’re too busy making sure that no-one saw you lose your dignity.


Richard 07.19.10 at 10:29 pm

I’m afraid my daughter witnessed the whole sorry affair Beth.

Simon, you’re right. It’s Stenna for ferries, Stannah for stairlifts. And Stella for Artois. :)

At least it wasn’t a fall from grace (or was it?). :)


PamBG 07.20.10 at 1:08 am

Hope you feel better soon.

@Richard, keep the pigeon. Poor guy had a loooong flight already, better to commit him to bringing goodwill, cheer, and very small trinkets to local people for the future.

I do hope the dog is providing a doggy share of comfort.

Having suffered permanently from that launch off the stairs a few years ago, I hate to see anyone aching or hurt from a tumble. Prayers and good wishes…


Beth 07.21.10 at 12:41 pm

Poor you, Bene. I’m permanently terrified of going down stairs ever since breaking a foot so doing three years ago. On Good Friday. (The following year, I broke a rib on Yom Kippur. Religious festivals aren’t good for me.)

Richard - are you better?


Richard 07.21.10 at 1:11 pm

I’m fine now. Thanks everyone.
