As they say, Áine, death is nature's way of telling us to slow down - and a backache is a milder way of saying the same thing. Too much digging is bad medicine.

There was this elephant going out for a walk, and he met a mouse.

Well, some elephants are scared of mice, but this one wasn't.

"I am the the mighty elephant, greatest of beasts. I am strongest of all creatures - and you, you are a pathetic mouse. You are weak, tiny, and generally ridiculous. What have you to say for yourself?"

"Well",said the mouse "I haven't been well lately" .

And talking of elephants, visit this page and read a chapter from one of my favourite books, which is about a generally benevolent but at times quite acerbic elephant called Uncle.

And here's a song about getting better (from a knee operation).
