Or 2 !!!!!


I am not necessairly a luck person, God was watching over you. You could've been seriously hurt, glad to hear you are okay.

We used to have a safety saying here at work "Take 2"... take 2 secs to think before you do anything.

We just bought my son the Bronco, it's a 5 spd. I have been driving it and find myself just throwing it in neutral to open gates, etc. I even had to grab brush guard a couple times to stop it from rolling. This makes me think to be a little more cautious and throw the Ebrake on whenever I get out.

I sure am glad you weren't seriously hurt Bill!  It is amazing how fast things can go south.  This is a good reminder for all of us to keep safety in mind no matter what we are doing.  I bet you are sore today.

WOW! Glad you didn't get hurt ! The man upstairs was looking down on ya for sure. If I said that I've been there done nearly the same thing, would that make ya feel better. Well that's a story for another day. Glad you're OK.                                                                                              Roger.

Other than bruises on both thighs and back all is well but I am pretty stiff today.  Did get the shed up yesterday though.


Thanks for the good thoughts.

Glad to hear you wern't hurt too bad. Isn't it ironic that the accident was caused by a safety device??

I had to think of this today while at work. I had jumped off the forklift to move some dunnage and forgot to flip the brake switch. I thought of it as I was in front of it. It sure didn't take me long to get back to hit the switch.
