Got a phone message, last night, that my son had been in an accident. When I called the number, Mark answered. It seems that he totaled his motorcycle. I had to keep asking him if HE was OK. He, just wanted to talk about the bike. I, finally, found out that he'd broken his collarbone and another bone, in his shoulder and had quite a bit of road rash. He and Samantha (his fiance) stopped by the house, on their way back to Benson, so that I could see that he's OK. He looks worse than he is. They showed me his helmet - thank God he was wearing it! From the scrape marks, he would have torn off the whole left side of his head. I've worried about him and that bike but, I can't say much - I got my first one, at age 13. All I've said was "be careful". At least, he's alive and has no permanent damage.
