Rather than being so much a request for prayers, this is one time that I will give thanks to God for His protection. As for Cntryboy. Thankfully things aren't as serious as they could have been, but seeing how Cntryboy was having flashbacks of being a teenager...you know the mindset (I think it has been referred to as midlife crisis)...I AM INVINCIBLE! I can do anything I set my mind to! Time to throw caution to the wind and let it ride over the bull patties lying in the pasture. Well guys and gals, let this be a reminder to us all: Toby Keith sings, "I may not be good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was." Here's where Newton went wrong...after unsuccessfully attempting to take his 4 wheeler up an over an embankment, not once, but twice, he decided to give it just one more try. His stubborn, bullheaded, superman mindset got the best of him. On his third attempt, the 4 wheeler suddenly came to life and took on the attitude of a Missouri mule: it'd had enough and was done trying to get Newton over that crest. Needless to say, the 4 wheeler decided to show Newton who was boss and teach him a hard lesson. The 4 wheeler jumped into the air and pounced on him like an angry grizzly (hmm...just what brand of 4 wheeler was that???) The long and short of it is, he came out of it with all the ligaments in his knee tore up and is going to be sore from head to toe for several days. Things could have been much more serious, but thankfully, God was watching over him.
