A Bonk On The Head.....

I can't believe I forgot to mention this in my last post.

Saturday morning we are riding down Kerr station rd you have to make a left turn and go over railroad tracks to get back to 1st street. As we are approaching the turn the railroad crossing starts clanging and the lights are flashing. Bailey and Arland say we can make it... I freeze and say NO I can't. Well.. I stop and am about to get off my bike when all of a sudden I get hit in the head by the railroad crossing arm. It scared the life out of me, not only did it hit me in the head it was pushing me down and I couldn't get off my bike fast enough, luckily I didn't fall off my bike. I looked up just in time to see that Bailey had seen what had happened and was laughing her ass off!!
I was mortified.. I really can't even describe all the emotions going through my head. So Arland and Bailey are on the other side of the tracks and have to wait for me. I totally could have made it but I have this thing about railroad tracks.
I walked my bike back away from the tracks and when the train finally passed I walked my bike over the tracks and was then walking it across the street. My legs were really shaky and I wanted to be away from traffic before I got back on. WELL... out of the clear blue I crashed... yes I crashed my bike while walking it. It fell I fell it was just humiliating!! Of course you know Arland and Bailey were lauging their heads off.
I'll admit I did shed a few tears but not because I was hurt but because I was embarassed!! After I was on my bike I did get a good laugh out of the whole experience but good grief!!!!!
