It's my first day back after being away for a month recovering from a broken pelvis. How did this happen?
Some people have said I fell off my horse, but as my neighbor in Texas Tommy Hastings is here to tell you all... that is not quite right:
"John didn't fall off his horse, he got bucked off his horse... there's a big difference between that and falling off."
The horse I got bucked off of is Goldie, and she's a first-rate cutting horse.
Obviously, I'm not a first-rate cutting horse rider if I got bucked off...
A little credit where it's due... Dr. Paul Freudigman and his staff at Baylor University Medical Center (search) in Dallas put me back together and they did a great job.
So that's what happened. I'll try not to let it happen again!
That's My Word.
