I doubt Churchill recorded any toothpaste incidents in his private papers. But I'm too lazy to reread the two volumes to try to find it again...
Interesting, but what does tooth paste have to do with this topic, anymore then the price of tea in China!
I rode right up to the time I had double knee replacements, with knees so bad that I did not walk anywhere without pain, even on highest dose of Motrin.
I could not even jog the little amount required , to show a horse in hand
The only reason I was able to do this, is because I have ridden most of my life
This is not stated to prove how 'tough', I was, but to point out how much doing a certain activity over comes even physical handicaps, such as not putting tooth paste on your own tooth brush !
At the same time, once my knees were healed after replacements, allowing me to actually hike again, my cardiovascular system was behind my riding fitness, and even slight climbs at first, had my heart racing
