Itís hardly Readers Digest stuff, but itís a true story approx 100 words:

A disastrous Christmas for some. I spent the week confined to a tent on safari laid up with man flu! Fellow campers kept away. Another camper came down with Cellulitis and another, a farmer in Scotland was due to join us. Sadly he was involved in a duck shooting accident last weekend. He had walked beyond the duck line. Two of his mates instead of shooting above head level, both let rip their shotguns at the same time. His eyes took the full blast. Straight to a hospital where surgeons managed dig out pellets from inside both eyes. Another camper had the runs from pigging out on the sausages.
