Well after being released to work after my last 2 medical episodes
this year, I decided that I needed to start anew and repair the
sprinkler system damage of last winter's blizzards and get some yard
work done.

Saturday, I was going across the lawn when one of my wheels fell
into a sinkhole created by the broken sprinkler line. This threw me
backwards hard onto a rock. The rock hit me in the middle of my
spine exactly where I have several screws and a titanium plate. I
layed there for over 30 minutes before I could muster the strength
to get up into my wheelchair. I did use all the cursewords I knew
and even came up with several new variations.

I have been surviving with the help of my new friend "Mr. Percocet"
until I can get into the specialist on Tuesday. This makes 3
incidents this year (and it's only June!!), so that means I am
done... right? I have been working on cars only a short amount of
time until I have to lay down. I have only had my Amphi out once
this year (back in March) and she sits in the driveway under a
cover, very lonely and neglected.

I am now not certain if Celina is in the plans for me. I can't drive
more than 10 minutes now w/o severe pain so a 24hr drive doesn't
sound good now. Just getting in my truck is not much fun as it is.
Depending on what the Doctor says, I may not be doing any road trips
any time soon. At the very least I may have some pictures to prove I
have a screw loose!

Somebody go for a swim for me would ya?

John ... So sorry to hear all the news. Dave and I will be on te Rock River Saturday... I'll force Dave to have a couple extra beers for you. My next major swim-in is likely Roger's at the end of September. But I'll be hanging with Dave and Capone between times. Get some rest. Eric

<div style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt; FONT-FAMILY: times new roman, new york, times, serif">What is the old saying, "If it were not for bad luck, you would have no luck at all".
<div style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt; FONT-FAMILY: times new roman, new york, times, serif">
<div style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt; FONT-FAMILY: times new roman, new york, times, serif">Well hopefully this was #3 of 3 and from this point forward there is only good luck and good kharma coming your way. You will be missed at Celina but if it means missing this one so that you can make the next 50, then take the time and get healed up.
<div style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt; FONT-FAMILY: times new roman, new york, times, serif">
I think I speak for all the Amphibians when I say that if there is anything any of us can do to help, just say the word.
