Thank you, thank you, thank you, one and all for the giggles, larfs, guffaws, and good advice!! Dear Hubby kept me abreast (oh behave, Amergin) of your comments and jokes yesterday, and believe me, they kept me prone all the while. ;-)
I'm still hurting, but I can walk (slowly) now. I don't think I'll be digging in the garden for a couple of days, but I'm definitely on the mend. Cudos to all of you for making the pain in my ass (well, close enough for government work) bearable! You all deserve a standing ovation, which I will be able to give you in a couple of days, I promise.
Thanks again to everyone who answered my 'lifeline' call, Áine
