Bap, Ouch is right, that's the hard way to come down . Your gonna feel that tomorrow, (if not before). We had a great day today 70's for a temp and 100% sunshine. I had the ramp down, cleaning inside getting ready to start work .

bap,
I hope that you didn't hurt yourself. I hate the hard(quick) way.


Terry,
Sorry that you got busted, but i'm sure you just got the eye roll and not the cold shoulder. Vent looks good.


Jay,
You shouldn't be surprised that I thought it was funny, after all we do think a lot alike.
Frank

Terry and Jeff,
So glad that both of you survived your adventures relatively unscathed.

I agree with Frank. It is nice to see Terry basking on the sun deck while installing the vent cover. Had to be difficult to do while in a semi prone position but it is progress never the less.

However Jeff, 3 demerits for an ungainly dismount. Sorry but the judges are tough on bad form. Fortunately there is no room in the restoration olympics for bad dismounts. Ruling by the judges is that use of the step ladder in future events is restricted. Really glad that the only thing that was hurt was pride.

Lynne - do not be discouraged. Your MH is out there somewhere.

I think 3 demerits are an adquate penalty besides the bruising. However we could ask for a committee review.

bap - I'm sorry but in spite of the perfect form and graceful priouette the Russian judge is really tough.

And good luck on a successful sale to folks who will love your restorations as much as you do.

Good Morning All, Going to be in the 70"s today, unfortunately I can't take advantage, every six months then two weeks later I have to have an eight hr. infusion to tone down my immune system, it thinks good things are not and attacks them anyway, its called (RA) Rheumatoid Arthritis, I have had it for 30+ yrs. one reason my joints are going. Bap, glad there is no damage done from your leap, you have brought us some comic relief through, Gordon said it well. Good luck on the sales. Gordon, actually it wasn't so bad, I put a cushion down and kinda scooted around, I still can't kneel down. Popeye, that's funny, I have that song running thru my head now. Jay yup she knows me and has accepted the inevitable yrs ago, I can't change now. Everyone have a great day.

bap,
When I fell off the car trailer, flat on my back, but my arm must have hit the tounge or jack. My left hand was at a very odd angle, ended up with what looks like an old skate key and a bunch of screws to put the wrist back together. That happened 3 days after I officially retired, so it got me ready to not get up and go go go every morning.
Again, glad that you didn't hurt yourself.
Frank
