Ireland

Day after day the leg heals and the Black Knight must walk without the crutch: this is a strong order of the orthopaedic surgeon.
At the moment I am learning not to limp counting the steps as if I marched: one-two-one-two!
But the Black Knight doesn't forget that the enemy is on the borders always more arrogant and cruel; for this reason he follows a drill program on the ground and across the water to be ready to fight again.
Five days a week he swims 1500 metres and after he makes the rehabilitation into the swimming pool (jumps, runs and walks).
Everyday he works on the "dreadmill" walking as fast as he can, sometimes getting a little help resting his hands on the guides.
In the meanwhile he has planned an expedition to submit the enemies who live in Ireland. He will also be there to watch the match Ireland - Italy of rugby.
I am sure that the Irish Black Legion, after the enemy's surrender, will support the Irish team but....the Black Knight is a good fearless leader and will forgive his brave allied (indeed at the moment the only Sir Thomas).

  5. You are attacking your rehabilitation the same way you attack in battle: Take no enemies. Very inspiring! (You JUMP???)

    Keep recovering. You'll soon be back 100 percent!

  6. A little rest and relaxation in the land of the Green is one way to keep our Black Knight from feeling Blue.

  7. Um, I am mostly Irish... and fond of guiness... and Irish accents. I think I have to hang out w/Sir Thomas on this one. Maybe we can allow the Irish into our Army? Just for one day?? :))

  9. while cassidys come from ireland, i identify mostly with my continental side, so i'm all about the italians. the irish gave us beer, but italians gave us design and great art.

    the numbers are good: 02/02/2008... 2x2x2 is 8. it's an omen.

    glad to read that you're walking. does this mean the queen is putting you to work more?

  10. Be careful of the hooligans...or is that only in England? In America I went to two soccer games last year--to scout the blond tattooed vanguard from across the pond, the one with the Spice Wife--I got my full dose of football!
