The great Chuck Yeager was the first to break the sound barrier. He had fallen off a horse 2 days before the historic flight and broke two ribs. Fear of being removed from the mission, he got treated by a veterinarian and only told his wife. He was in so much pain that he had to rig a broom handle to give him leverage to close the aircraft hatch. Of course you know the rest of the story of Chuck flying the X-1 right past mach 1. Tough Guy! Right?
Me on the other hand, fell on the trail Saturday morning and bruised my ribs on the left side. As far I know I didn’t break anything. When it was time for me to rise and shine and give God the Glory, Glory…this morning…I could barely move. How the heck Chucky boy broke the sound barrier is beyond me. The track workout tonight ought to be interested. Keep the children away as I don’t want them to pick up any questionable vocabulary words.
