Postcards for Matt

Gents among you will know that man-cold is not to be triffled with, for it can be fatal to men.  It’s what sets us apart.  So when I heard that Matt was suffering not from man-cold, but the far more deadly man-flu, I feared the worst.  (Cath thought he should simply ‘harden up’.)  The poor fellow was putting on a brave face, to be sure.  But I recognised the signs – he thought he had been checked into the ICU, as you will know should be done in such cases, even if it seldom is.  So lacking the courage to give him the bleak progosis, we sent him a series of ‘postcards’, live from a morning ride through the hills southeast of Cefalu, Sicily.  Perhaps one of you could use these in the memorial service…Road to Castelbuono (in distance)
