    First....let me start by telling you that I am fine......really....I'm okay.

    Now the story.

    We were in Monaco / Monte Carlo yesterday and walking through a park on our way from a shopping area to the casino (the James Bond casino).

    As I'm walking (and using a cane because my knee hurts), a bus makes a turn into the street where I'm walking along the edge.

    The driver sees me. I'm almost seven feet tall and wearing an orange shirt.

    Instead of waiting, he keeps coming, but has cut the corner so tight that there is no room for me. I didnt even have time to get on the curb.

    He bumped me hard enough that he knocked me down. Luckily, there happened to be a patch of very soft grass that softened my fall.

    To add insult to the whole thing.....he got of his bus and yelled at me in Monaco-ese (or French). I was too shocked to notice.

    He cursed me out and never even asked if I were ok.

    It kinda ruined the rest of the time we were in Monaco.

    I was scared and mad and we just wanted to get out.

    Again....I'm not hurt.......but I was hit by a bus in Monaco.

    More later.

    AMAZING! No matter where you are for the rest of your life, you have to tell that story to everyone. Only don't actually tell that story. When someone is giving you a sob story that really isn't a sob story, you should just look at them and say "Ummmm, were you ever hit by a bus in Monaco? Because I was. Now shut your whining." And that's it. No more explanation.
    Also, you should sue Monaco. Tell them you want jewels.

    Nah, Kevin knows me pretty well. He knows I would be lost if anything happened to him. It's exactly the response he would expect from me. But just in case anyone thinks otherwise, I am VERY glad Kevin is not hurt in anyway, and shame on that driver!

    If you have to be hit by a bus, then I suppose it is good that you were in Monaco. :drive:

    Seriously, glad you are OK.

    Pedestrians in Europe are target practice for road users ;)

    Not making light of your situation Kevin, just sadly an observation where even now I run across the road while in Europe.

    Hope that you enjoyed the rest of your trip as this was something you were really looking forward too :goodvibes

    Kevin, I'm so glad you weren't hurt. Stupid bus driver (family board, can't type what I really want to call him) I hope you have had a good time before this and a fantastic time after this.

    Kevin,

    Glad you are ok.

    You should have yelled at the driver with your "outside" voice!

    Could you please save some of this excitement for next week?

    Looking forward to seeing you, please take care.

    Frank and Cathy
