Card Ideas

Does anyone have any good ideas for a post-injury card? My Dad took a pretty nast header a couple days ago while out with a friend. Ended up with a serious concussion, couldn't remember who he was, the whole shabang. But he finished the ride (though he still doesn't remember anything from that day). He's a tough old codger and he got pretty banged up, so I wanted to give him a sort of "sorry about your gettin' busted up" card, but I was hoping to be a little more eloquent and funny than that. So I was looking for some ideas.

Anyone wanna weigh in?

Thanks!
Niles

Hey Niles! Just wrote this for your dad! Is it okay?





Heard about your crash last time
You went out for a ride.
You made it home in one piece though
I know you really tried.

You didn't know and couldn't find
Your number and your name
Another dazed one in E.R.
What? They're all the same.

Your trophies that are scrapes and cuts
Can be your bragging bits
How a tough old guy can be like us
And take in all the hits.

Just want to say I'm proud of you
For toughing out this world.
I promise I won't tell a soul
(you were crying like a girl)!

Here I thought this was going to be a thread about an emergency instructions / contcat list card. I've got a set of dog tags from http://www.poundmaster.com/ They have my name, driver's license number, blood type and medication allergy info on one tag the other has my emergency numbers. It'll be a good thing if I ever get taken out while on a ride

I was actually thinking of getting some type of dogtags, 'cause they look pretty nice and they'd be useful if I ever had a nasty crash while riding alone (one of the reasons I don't push myself at all when I ride alone).

Though I wear them whenever I'm on a ride, I feel they're more valuable in town. If I go down for some reason some jerk might steal my bike or my wallet, but hardly anyone would take my tags. It's also helpful because I typically don't take my driver's license out with me on a recreation ride.
