    Alright dammit to hell. This is the second time this year I fell off my trailor. This time walking along the edge of the ramp. Now I sprang my ankle. It didnt hurt while i was working. But now it does. Going to be fun tomm. Last time i fell off the side but didnt get hurt. Least when I have been drinKing after hours I have an excuse:). Anyone else have the fallen and I cant get up syndrome?

    Charles,<p>I haven't fallen off the trailer, but the other day I was trying to trim a trumpet vine. Make long story short, I had forgotten to put the ladder in the truck so I pulled up long side of it and climb on the bed rails. Let's just say I won't be doing that again. I don't think I'm a sure footed as I thought.<p>Hope your Okay. I bet that with a few beers you could probably navigate the trailer better than sober. At least you will think you did.<p>Question is did anyone else see you? I wouldn't care unless someone saw me.LOL<p>Adam :)

    Adam, the first thing I did was look around and see if anyone saw me lol. I would hate that. But i guess no one did. I think my ankle just gave out. cause it just rolled over sideways. Then I fell. I put a heatpad on it all last night. Its 75% ready to go today. ready or not its going to have to work.
