    One of my best friends just fell off his roof last night while hanging Xmas lights. Now he's in the hospital with a broken pelvis, broken ankle, borken elbow and a smashed hand. They were doing a CT on him last night and I haven't heard about his condition yet this morning...

    Be carefull when you are hanging those things. Gravity can hurt you...

    Thanks... I just talked to him on the phone and he's all groggy from the meds. It's going to be at least a couple of months before he can go back to work and maybe a year before he can skydive again.... How about that? He jumps out of airplanes for over 20 years and then gets hurt hanging Xmas lights... Geeeesh....

    Thanks for reminding me Fumes... It's time to start drinking. The dinner is cooking and football games are being played. Where's that bottle?
