Re: jib has come a cropper....

I like the idea of the halo as a headlamp bracket... :D

Don't worry about fusing the vertebrae. I have two fused together from my past shunt, and apart from not being able to turn my head past about 45 deg ( so I can't look over my shoulder ) I never give it a thought. I gather it's a common injury among ex-front-row-forwards like me ( inside linemen, for our US cousins ) .... they crack under compression, the cartilage fails and the new growth fuses across the gap.
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...

Re: jib has come a cropper....

haha haha, got out yesterday lunch time, mate came and picked me up and dropped me home to teignmouth,30 odd miles each way. went off had a couple of beers, went to bed and woke up this morning wondering how the bus that had run over me while i was sleeping hadnt damaged my flat at all. then my girlfriend climbed in through the window and got into bed, mmm felt much better aftera while and went back to sleep.
ive spent the rest of the day sunbatheing on the beach and feel a lot less stiff,all those rays breaking down the knots in my calves back and neck. so toptastick of to a party in a feild tonight ,there is a special area for damaged goods like me and barr, she fell over and broke her colllar bone a few days ago.
regards jib.
p.s. thanks for all the goodwill guys

Maybe if you gave her a key, she wouldn't hurt herself climbing in the window. :)

Re: jib has come a cropper....

George, jib, looking for replies from you both?

I am in Germany right now, but on a laybarge up in Stralsund ( Pomerania ) with a probable trip to Vyborg ( Russia ) next, so no use for maybe carrying anything back and no phone worth a light at present
