I'll start off by saying that I haven't been as dedicated as I should to my happy little blog but between the job, the indigestion and the house guests (#2 as a direct result of the other two) I haven't had as much time to sit down and hit the keys! So what's going on???
Well, I had an interesting conversation last week with a young lady who works in one of those walk in clinics we have here in the Hamptons. You know you've seen them and consider them your local town doctor. I've actually gone to one of them and to be honest and they saved me one nasty winter cold from becoming pneumonia. Anyway, what did I talk about with this young lady who I'll call "Coffee" because I want to protect her identity and because I'm typing this in the morning and enjoying a certain beverage. So I asked Coffee about what are the most common types of walk-in's she sees at the clinic... wait I can't call her Coffee anymore, let's call her "Ann"... I'm watching The Today Show. What did she say?????
So what's number 2!? Well if your thinking it has anything to do with the ocean or beach you're wrong. The number 2 most dangerous activity in the Hamptons is BICYCLING! No,
it's not peddlers getting hit by vehicles that is causing the problem, it's lack of coordination and lack of padding and helmets that is causing the problem! Yes, it's a right of summer when weekend warriors put on their spandex cycling shorts and hit the mean streets of the East End. I know it seems like a good thing to do, be in the great outdoors and exercising but there are a lot of pot holes and gravel out there folks. That seems to be the biggest problem! My advice to you for a safer summer? I have a saying for this too, "If it has wheels of two find one that don't moo (ve)." Yeah, go to a spin class and go outside on a hike later... and make sure to avoid the poison ivy! But be safe, besides I see the way most people drive out here... It's not pretty folks! Enjoy the rest of the holiday week!
