Re: dang, dropped it

Sorry to hear about the flop. I can't help with the parts, but I can cetainly relate to the aggravation/heartburn. About two months ago I did the same when leaving the HDDC at Brew and Burgers in Sac. Embarassing as hell but glad not to be injured.

The bruise to the ego heals much faster than a bum leg like Raffy's. Let's all count our blessings ( or whatever we each call them) and continue to send support and hope for Raffy's continued and timely recovery.

Re: dang, dropped it

Howard, if there was no picture, it wouldn't have happened.

Seeing her lying there like that, brings to mind a quote from the Tarzan movies...

"Up, Simba, up!" Or was it Tantor. Been too long. Anyway, like a dog with no legs, once she goes over, she won't come when you call her.

Nope, I've never dropped mine in the garage, when stopped by the side of the road, or even leaned it over to rest on the lawn tractor. Huh-uh. No pic, so it did not happen.

I like your thinking, Lee, but what about when you drop it in the parking lot at work... with witnesses?

Since you guys seem to have so much trouble keeping those things upright, you should consider one of these:

Re: dang, dropped it

It's finally coming to me why you guys like those big 'ol funky aluminum boxes as opposed to the smooth, shiney painted fu-fu fiberglass bags.....

BTW, I have a friend in Lodi who is a professor of matching any color, any metallic. I've given him plenty of practice ....
