    well It' happend at the end of the day. dumping debris at the city waste dump,as I was dragging the tarp,i could not see the edge of the wall, and I fell my left leg on the inner thigh cought on something on the way down ripped wide open,went to the hosp, and got nine staples,and they trimmed away some of the fat that was hanging,well what did I learn.not to work on a sunday,one day I should hire, and sit back on the side line.At least I was smart ,I have insurance! now I will bit the snake that bit me .for the next two weeks,I won't be as fast,but I will finish ,I can't quit, i'm just going to take it slow and one day at a time.I;m happy to see my little girl and wife today! Thank you Lord!

    I over treaded my ankle around thanks giving last year and just made a list of all the things that HAD to get done for the holiday... The Docs scared me into taking the next day off and were saying that I would have to have sergery..... but it ended up being ok... still bothers me today but I ended up taking it easy for 4 days and was in an air cast for over a month to keep it supported... It tough being the one to do the work and you get hurt, I got so mad that it happend..

    getting hurt now isnt a good time but i hope it all work out for you!!
