One of our English members, Salada, AKA Michael, fell off a ladder.  He broke 12 ribs, and a couple vertebra in his neck. bruised a lung, a kidney, and his liver. So let's let him know that we miss him, and wish him a speedy recovery. Either respond here, or send him a PM. He can read his wife's iPad, but his fingers don't fit the stupid little keyboard so he won't be able to respond until he is mobile enough to get to his pre-electric computer, where you have to hit the ''keys'' with your fist

O.M.G

Michael sent me a P.M a few days ago saying he was heading south for the sun for a few weeks holiday.

Michael, you look after yourself bud. !

Ladders can be a pretty dodgey business.
I actualy fell about 3ft off the bottom of a small step-ladder the other day.
Bit of damage, but I was lucky.

Michael, get well soon.

Don't try lifting your 'main battle tank' P.C. chassis in your condition.

Michael,
seems you wrecked the whole issue, eh? But be of good spirits, nowadays' doctors will do the best they can ( and that's a lot- I'm married to one ) to get you back on your tracks. Seriously - all my best wishes for your recovery.

Hey Michael,
You certainly know how to do a good job on yourself. Sounds like it could be a while before you swing a shovel again.

OUCH!!! Is there a rib you didn't break?? or did you break some of them twice?? Just for good measure?

No laughing - I know it hurts :bg:

It sounds like that just shot the holiday in the sun. :f:

Get well quick and we can discuss the finer points of coal wagons when you are up to it.

Si--

The resemblance is remarkable--but according to Michael the guys dressed in white on the ends should be jumping up and down--they were that rough-----

Thank you all for your kind thoughts & good wishes.

helmet : So many who know me personally have said "typical, you never do anything by half measure". I,m so experienced at high rise ladder, scaffolding & roofing work but failed the 'Superman' screen test. Guess I forgot to put my pants (underwear) on over outside of trousers (pants).

Fell about 12 - 14 ' off double rise ladder direct onto Tarmac/concrete roadway below.

John, oztrain : unfortunately atelier this the end of my footplate days, I was almost 'age expired' anyway. Yup, some ribs fractured twice - front n back. No more shovelling tons for me.

Si: Madame s almost died of laughing at your diorama !!! Pity no rail track where I landed, watching the trains would have helped passing time until ,ambulance, arrived - 50 mins , faulty stretcher rails blah blah.

Please es use any typos etc, this thing thinks it's spelling is superior to mine.

Regards, Michael from wife's I-thing
