Poor Dad had a fall

Dogs aren't allowed in the Flinders Ranges so on Friday Mum and Dad found me a wonderful woman to stay with for the day. She had two small fluffy dogs so I played with them most of the day. I was even allowed to go inside her house. I just hung out and watched a bit of TV. When her son came home from school, he played ball with me.
Meanwhile Mum and Dad spent the day at the Southern Flinders Ranges in Mount Remarkable National Park. They did a bit of walking, which they need to do because both of them are putting on weight and Dad even looks like he has man boobs.
Some of the walking trails were far too long for Mum and Dad to do, (and they wonder why they are putting on weight!) so they went on a two hour walk through Alligator Gorge and then a 40 minute walk through Telowie Gorge . They said the scenery was gorgeous and they even saw a goat and a yellow-footed wallaby.
When Mum and Dad came to get me the woman who looked after me said I was so wonderful (true!) that she wanted to keep me.
On Saturday Mum had her usual washing day but dad didn't have his usual golf day. Mum may have become an expert in washing at a campsite but for some reason she is now forgetting to take her towel when she goes to have a shower. She keeps using her t-shirts to dry off. I think it would be an idea if she writes a list on how to do things. If Mum was a dog, I'm not sure what she would be. I mean she may eat like a labrador but she's definitely not smart like one.
We had a quick stroll around Port Pirie. By quick, I mean Dad drove to the centre, parked and then we walked around the corner to the pub. Dad wanted to make a few bets and I think he felt guilty because me and Mum were just sitting around huffing because it was hot, so he suggested we go to Port Germein and walk along the jetty, which is 1.5km long. So we did.
All was going well walking along the jetty until we decided to walk back. Dad suggested walking back along the beach (the tide was out so it was a nice long walk back). Mum didn't want to so me and Dad started climbing down the stairs from the jetty to the water and then...dad slipped! I think he slipped on seaweed but Mum reckons he's just clumsy. I was bouncing around because I didn't really know what was going on, Dad was yelling rude words and Mum was saying 'The first aid kit is back at the campsite'. (Good one Mum) Poor Dad had to take care of himself because Mum wouldn't come down the stairs (she thought she might slip too) so he took his t-shirt off (no six-pack in sight, Mum said) and started tearing off pieces to bandage himself up. I think he did a good job.
We rushed off to hospital which is back at Port Pirie and I'm left in the car while Mum and Dad go in. Dad saw the nurse who said it's not as bad as it looks so Mum came back outside and waited with me for Dad. While Mum was waiting she spoke to a woman who had come to the hospital to see her sister. When Dad came out and started walking towards us, Mum said to the woman, 'Here comes my idiot husband.' Mum can be so rude sometimes.
