Awesome Autumn

It was an unexpected day off, at 8:00 a. m. we found out that Eman wasn't going to visit us today. So what's a person to do? Immediately start planning how to use this free day. It didn't take long and the four wheelers were being loaded on the trailer, drinks and snack thrown in the cooler, and shazam we're on our way to the mountains for a fall ride. Spanish Fork canyon was the target area and right at the sky view turn off is where we unloaded the wheelers and started having an adventure. Gma was doing pretty well, fording rivers and driving her best. The scenery was spectacular the trail was great just wide enough for atvs. But there was a bit of a mishap( they seem to be dogging me lately) . We were up this beautiful canyon about ten miles from the truck and Gma is just tooling along and all of a sudden she tips over with the four wheeler. She hit a small stump on the side of the trail and it flipped her before she knew what happened. I jumped to her rescue and lifted the four wheeler of her ankle which was pinned under neath the floor board of the four wheeler. She got up and kind of took an assessment of her self. Her ankle was alright just a little scrape, but she was having quite a bit of pain on the left side of her back. After a while she decided she would be able to ride back to the truck, I was relieved that she felt she could do that. So tonight its hot soaking bath, advil and heating pads. Now I am just waiting to get my call from the gma abuse hot line. I wonder if the give warnings like speeding tickets or do they just haul you to jail right away.

I'm sorry to be the one to break the news to you but grandma abuse is the worst thing you can possibly do. You don't even get a jury of your peers but rather it will be your six grandkids judging you. You don't stand a chance - except maybe Lincoln. He might choose you over grandma (if you were standing by your 4-wheeler).

I agree. Grandma abuse is almost unforgivable. The good news is that Linc will probably take your side and beat the crap out of the other 5 grandkids if they get hostile.
