Just got off the phone with my brother he said when you get older a broken hip is what causes you to fall, instead of the other way around. Lol

Re: Things I Hate (3)


Calidecks,
Glad it wasn't worse, best wishes with the recovery. Sounds like how I usually hurt myself- never when I'm actually doing anything 'dangerous'.

Please be super careful with the meds. I knew 3 people that became inadvertent addicts after just taking what they were prescribed. I say 'knew' because they are far beyond any help I can offer.

What caused that disaster, Andy?

Is that a wheel spacer that sheared off?

Looks like I can add another reason to never hang Christmas lights.

Sorry to hear Mike. Hope that all goes well with the surgery.

I can honestly say I've never had to shovel snow off my sub-floor.

All the studs snapped off the spacer.

I dont know if it is a faulty spacer or the mechanic over tourqued the nuts when they did the brakes a few weeks ago
