Re: [RC] Calves and Lessons - paul

Hi Jody,

Sitting down on the toilet is easy. Just bend your knees a little and let 
gravity do its work.  Figuring a way to get a forklift into the bathroom to 
help me back up is the hard part.

By the way, at Tevis on Sunday morning I figured out how to tell who finshed 
just by looking at them. The ones walking fine but with a sad expression got 
pulled early. The ones walking funny with a sad expression got pulled late. The 
ones who could barely walk, but had a big smile on their tired faces were those 
who finished.   When they were doing the awards, most people had a tough timje 
with the steps going up to the stage.  I was determined to not look that bad, 
so bounced up the steps and jogged over to the presenter. Ron Chapman and my 
crew were impressed with this, as they had seen how sore I was. I just sang the 
line from the Toby Keith song, " I ain't as good as I once was.. But I am as 
good once as I ever was"

PS.. Debbie Parsons was amazing.!!! She will do SE Region proud when she 
completes Tevis. When I contacted her, I mentioned that I had references from 
her region. I mentioned you as one. She said she would crew for me anyways:)

Huh Angie.  I agree with that is why we hurt there.  But please explain, in 
enough detail for a visual...how do I sit down on the toilet...backwards????

Gee Paul, if I had ever done *Tevis* I might be able to guess!!! OK,
personal opinion, I think that's the muscle we use to make ourselves
lower down *gently* when we post, which is why I am incapable of
lowering myself down a stair, or a curb or anything else for a few days
after a hard ride. If you'll go backwards down the stairs and walk
backwards down hills it won't hurt, but people look at you funny. I had
to explain to my neighbor why I was backing down the hill with a
wheelbarrow with a bale of hay in it.

Congratulations!!!
Angie
