    I\'m Glad to be Here Today!!!!!

    I got to go for a ride in the lambulance today! We were working on a pole that was hit by a car last night. A new pole was put up, the phases and cross arms were transferred. There was a 3 phase 6" riser that hadnt been xferred but was tied to the new pole with a rope. I was walking around the pole looking to see how we could move stuff when someone shouted out "Jim,headache!" BeforeI could even react, about 200lbs worth of this pipe came down on top of my head and knocked me senseless. You ever see the cartoons of a log or tree pounding someone into the ground like a nail? This thing was 20' off the ground and swung like a pendulum right on my hard hat. It broke the hell out of it.! Luckily no major damage, broken bones or stuff like that. My guardian is on overtime lately.

    ... as long as you don't start buying Jeeps or anything, I guess you'll be fine !! J/K

    Glad you're ok - I certainly know the feeling - I had some overhead crane equipment tag me once. I think it actually knocked some sense INTO me!

    Re: I\'m Glad to be Here Today!!!!!

    Reminds me of my first week working in a structural steel plant...we were feeding a large sheet of 3/8's plate into a rolling mill. We used a large overhead crane with a crane op. in the cab 40 ft. up. I happened to be on the wall-side feeding near another crane's pylon when the steel decided to swing my way and whack the pylon. Luckily, I ducked down instead of being de-capitated...would have been extremely less than my usual 6"4'!

    It's a sad day peoples. I just took my last vicodin. No more, they're all gone. "I don't condone the use of drugs, but in my case, they've always worked!" ( who said it and what movie?)
