On wearing helmets...

There is nothing quite so aggravating as the smug assurance of a riding hemet.  It seems to be everlastingly reminding one of the inevitable fact that one cannot escape it.  Of all necessary and useful inventions, the helmet is one of the most vexing.  
Think of all the delightful things one might wear on their head while riding - a tam, for instance, or a cowboy hat, or an intricately braided crown hair do...!
But no, the bulky, cumbersome, tiresome helmet must forever be imposing on our convenience and comfort.
But, a helmet is similar to insurance in that; "you never need it until you do."
And so I wear it and am thankful.
Most of the time.

Truer words were never spoken...
I only have one head, therefore, I wear a helmet, grudgingly...I am thankful that they've finally figured out how to make helmets light weight and semi comfortable, though.
I ride Bob in from pasture without a helmet sometimes;)
P.S. I've always loved that pic of you and Riley.  It's so sweet:)
Edit: I never see that frog without chuckling to myself;)

Riding helmets must be almost, if not as much, quite as aggrivatinig as a bike helmet. Dad has instisted that we wear bike helmets everywere we go even if it just down the block and it's really sort of irritating (especially if your hair happens to be in a braid!) even if it is more safe :). Oh well, I guess they are just something we must deal with and be thankful for when we need them :).
