    I think the world is ganging up on me

    At least my phone has started working again, but the 2a has broken down, and the weather is looking black, the weather radar that covers this area is not working, and none of the river gauges along the Talbragar have been updated since noon yesterday.

    FWIW, BOM website has a bit of a dense shower passing between Naromine and Eumungerie.

    And this afternnon I tripped and fell heavily in the shed, dropping the carburettor. It does not appear to be damaged, which is more than can be said for my knees, particularly my left one, although nothing seems to be broken, just bruised - enough to draw blood on the left kneecap despite the overalls. Pretty shaken though.

    Take it easy John, we don't bounce like we used to.
    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    Yes, the World does appear to be out to get you!
    Think of a way to get it back - revenge is Sweet!

    Telling the World to get stuffed does not work in my experience.
    D2a with a whole lot of stuff that came with/on it.
    Including the 3 Amigos!

    Funny that,not.. That was the reply I got when I asked a Pro Painter if he could paint the shed roof a few years ago..

    But if in doubt he was right in saying NO. Coming a gutser from nearly 30' up I don't think there would have been much bouncing going on, just a quick "SPLAT" from him & an "Oh ****!" from me.

    And even further to get back up again.

    Around 5 or so years ago I clumsily ( trying to get all of my stuff rather than make 2 or more trips... tired ) I fell out of the cab of the R Scania, landed on my right hip. Not a soul around. It took nearly 15 minutes for me to get up, and another 15 before I could drag myself to my car. It was days before I thought I could walk again. Up until then I still thought I was immortal.

    You're right Ian, bouncing left the building quite some time ago, but I didn't notice until it hurt.

    S'funny ain't it. Everybody else seem to have Bounce Capability when observed but when it comes to the then Observer's bounce it can ****ing hurt or maim.

    The method of hitting the ground is fine while you can still do it (arms tucked in, head down etc) but one day one will lose that knack & BINGO! Gotcha ya bastard!

    One of my worst ones was after I had Abdominal Surgery & thinking I was Super Person after a few days. & as it turned out not a lot of abdominal strength then, I tried to do something on the Discovery low down so while sitting I started to slowly unwind backwards.

    I recall thinking/wondering WTF was behind me when I sat down ie. A garage Jack? An open toolbox? Some other bit that could cave my head in? I had no control to stop falling back but in this case my "Land Rover Optional Workshop God P/N 000000' was looking after me & there was none of the above but a clear, smooth concrete floor. By that time (split seconds) I had enough strength & determination to brace myself for any impending crunch which fortunately didn't come & I hit the floor with a semi-controlled bump & mainly with my shoulders.
