First “peddle” instead of “pedal” now “ambuaance”.

Where are the editors? Really, seriously, this is horrible!

Laura, will you interview me cause yesterday I was bucked off a horse I am training and my pubic area was bruised by the saddle horn?

We could make this a ‘show and tell’ type story with lots of photos.I worn a helmet but would have liked to talk to an ambuaance chaser.

I think the main point here is our friend rightly declined to spend thousands of dollars to have them wrap his knee with an ace bandage.
