But not out.:smile1:

well I was building a shed for my non addiction tractor 's and implements last Sunday. somehow I missed the last step on a stepladder as I was coming down, the ladder and I fell over, onto my back. knocked the wind out of me pretty good, broke a rib maybe more I don't know, as I just feel them move. today was fairly good am able to get around relatively pain free. still move very gingerly. the line level is still on the post waiting for me to retrieve it and put up the first cross beam in. the Good thing is that it keeps me from spending money. I did pat 'Lil red today and told it I would start her up tomorrow.
No I did not go to the Dr. nothing he would have done that i haven't. except take my money. ( now i can save it for a nother traactor. No I did not say that did I)?:blush2:

Sorry to hear of your mishap with the ladder. Best wishes on a complete and speedy recovery. Glad to know that you still have a sense of humor and want to buy more tractors.

Missing the bottom rung on any ladder is easy to do, and I have done it both by mistake and on purpose. I have been lucky to not have a ladder fall on me though. I am glad to hear you are doing fine and in good spirits considering. Hope you recover quickly so you can get back to work on that shed. Smart guy like yourself could invest a rungless ladder so you can avoid missing that bottom step all together, but I think the guy that invented stilts already had that idea. :bigrofl:

Wow, sorry to hear about that. I cracked a rib once... long painful process. Especially when you start feeling better, start doing things you want to, and then it "reminds" you that it's still injured.

Hope you feel good enough to use the level soon.

I cracked a rib or 2 once also, and sure made it tough to take a full breath, and took weeks to heal. Hope they knit well & fast!
Sure is different when we take a tumble now verses when we were younger. Then we just rolled, bounced, then jumped up & laughed. Not these days!

Hope you heal up quickly. Broken ribs stick out like a sore thumb.

At age 17, I had to have hernia surgery. 2 days after I got home, my "buddy" brought a movie to watch. It was Dennis Miller's "Off White" Video. Had to pause every 45 seconds, it hurt too much... "laughter is the best medicine" my fanny...
