I remember (when I was much, much younger) watching a Yogi Bear cartoon and, as was typical of cartoons of that era, our hero ("smarter than the average bear!") would be chased off a cliff and not be affected by the law of gravity for at least five seconds, and would then face the viewers and say "What a place to put a cliff!" before disappearing off the bottom of the TV screen. I've always thought that was a hilarious remark in the face of doom.

Anyway, I wish I'd been smarter than the average bear last Saturday night. I was walking to my car in total darkness and should have walked downhill on a driveway to the parking area, but I missed the driveway in the dark and walked off a four-foot embankment instead. I sustained a broken clavicle and a knee that is functional, but will need therapy. Can't hunt fall turkeys and no trap shooting until mid-November. I really could have used some of that cinematic magic used by Yogi, Wiley Coyote and so many others. I'm actually lucky to be alive (no head injuries), but still, what a place to put a cliff! Be careful out there!

My dad did that in Korea. Walked off a cliff in the pitch black. He was unhurt, but he shattered the stock on his Garand.

L.A. I'm glad to say that I don't feel your pain. No turkey hunting--thats REALLY got to hurt. Four feet is a long way to go, especially when it's straight down. Now you know how Wile E. Coyote felt every Saturday morning. Look at the bright side, at least you can keep score and reward your friends and punish your foes. Does anyone you know deserve a 26 or even a 49 straight?

"Being a government-protected bear does have its drawbacks". Out of the mouths of bears...LOL!

Hope you get better sooner than they tell you!

"The Ranger's not gonna like this, Yogi..." These are my favorite words from Boo Boo, and they still echo in my head when I am about to do stuff I know that I shouldn't.

Hope your recovery is full and swift. Take care!

A long time ago a friend and I were walking next to a wall that was about four feet high. He said that I coouldn't jump over the wall. He claims he didn't know that there was a 10 foot drop on the other side of the wall.
