See, it is a dangerous sport, sounds like many others have had their close calls.
Funny thing Shorty is when the stars cleared from my head and I was still lying on the ground I reached over to check the pump for damage and of course there was none, it did not even break the clock face glass on the bottom side.

...Tom, a while back I had a rotten plank on a trailer give way when I was loading a Wayne 70...the pump/hand truck came right down on top of me - but it happened slowly enough that I was able to fall 'right' and avoid injury...my buddy (a fellow Oldgasser) had to help me out from under the pump, but we were both laughing about it...I'm glad you weren't more seriously hurt! Best wishes for a speedy recovery...drink your milk!

Lets get to what is important... Is the pump OK? LOL.

Just kidding buddy. Sorry to hear about the accident. You will heal up and be back to normal soon! It is a good thing you have good friends to help you out when you find yourself in a situation like this.

Talk to you soon Tom!

Tom: I rolled an ankle real bad last February...not as swollen as yours. Anyway, it wouldn't heal up and after a week finally went to a knee/ankle specialist. Turned out there was more dmage than a swollen ankle. After 8 months of PT (mostly on my own 5 days a week)I am just now released to get back on a treadmill for exercise.

I always had bad ankles and now my ankle "rolls" just by looking at it or even walking on level ground and will probably always be that way from here on in. I stepped off a curb yesterday and it rolled and almost ended up in a heap. I would encourage you to get it checked out by a specialist if it doesn't get better with ice and ibueprophen soon. good luck

shocked Oh wow, I just saw this posting. You were definitely lucky. Did you limp into work on Monday, immediately trip and fall, and claim it was an "on the job accident" so you can get paid while healing? Take care.

Wow Tom , it's a wonder you didn't break something ! That foot looks like it will be sore for awhile . Hopefully it will heal quickly.


I like SINCLAIR and old American made stuff ... No china items.

Just got back from Tom's place. I swear if it weren't for the crutches you would hardly know his leg is broken. I figured I'd catch him at home resting a bit. He is still moving pretty well and gave me a tour of the place like he had 2 good legs. If I was a pump guy I'd probably have wet myself. Thanks Tom, I really enjoyed checking it all out. Very, very impressive!

Thanks guys for the kind words! It was still a bone head move but sounds like I'm not alone. Hopefully this will be a reminder for everyone to not get complacent. Sounds like I have a good safety talk topic for my shop Techs this week.

Ed, you rascal you, only a retired postal employee could come up with such a plan...LOL. When I limped into work they all thought the mountain bike got me.

I really enjoyed Greg's visit this afternoon and it got me thinking how smart he and all the other sign and cans guys are.

Hope you heal up soon Tom. I haven't ended up under a pump yet but every time I move one I wonder to myself why I didn't want to collect stamps.
