Fear not!

(this post guest-written by Tony's future daughter-in-law)

Hello everybody,

Please excuse my absence but I've run into a bit of a snag--- let's just say that if the road were the barber and my face were my hair, he took a little off the top. I was biking along in Cambridge, OH along a not-well-traveled and hilly road, and on one of those roads, I skidded on a patch of loose rock and divested my visage of its Venusian virtue. But I digress.

My son plays Lynndie England while I lay in repose. That's me on the right.

A friendly Quaker picked me up and took me to the hospital, where I was airlifted back to Columbus. Or at least, that's what they tell me. As we speak, I'm getting a little bit of surgery done and will be just fine in a few.

Stay tuned! I don't know quite when I'll be on the road again, but it should be soon.




  1. Get well soon! I rode 70 miles today, mostly bike to ride a two wheel recumbent a mile or so from a nice guy we talked too! Loved it!

    I will be emailing you soon with all my contact info and awaiting news of your recovery!

  2. I plan on putting a bandaid on your photo at the library while you are on the road to recovery. Get well soon.

  3. Oops! Wishing you a speedy recovery. You're in our thoughts.

  4. Get better, Tony! I was really hoping to not read a post like this while you were on your trip! I was hoping for a safe trip for you. Get well soon!

  5. Sum Beach....been there done that, about 12 years ago did a "header" over the handle bars on the Celina-C/W Bike...6 metal stitches in the head and some rug burns....get better heal quick Ol' Timer.

  6. Hey Uncle T; Sorry to hear the "news". I'll get right to the point: You were there for me during my accident, so I thought that if they were going to do any sort of skin-grafts on you, I'd be happy to contribute some skin from my ASS if needed !? Thats better than a holstein cow!! Get well soon, man...

  7. Ouch! Tony it happens to the best. Get well calling you.

  8. OMG Tony! I hope you have a speedy recovery. I know you're not one to be able to just lie around. Praying for your speedy recovery.
