I can relate on the head-whack deal, Cat...did it to myself not once but twice last week...Last Sunday, I was doing a lettering job on a buddy of mine's tow truck. He had the "stinger" at about half mast, with the extension level to the floor (just about head high) I was trying to get to the opposite side of the truck, looking down at my feet and that stinger crossbar(the part that goes underneath the frontend of a car or truck and attaches to the tires) popped me in the head right above the bill of my cap. I uttered a few colorful words, and did a little bit of a jig across the floor (remember, I DON'T Dance!!
) and rubbed the ever increasing knot on my noggin. My buddy, Joey, claimed that the whole truck shook, and that smart ass went back to inspect the stinger to see if I had dented IT, rather than my skull
On Tuesday, I was putting up a "Friends of Soccer" sign outside of the football stadium for our local high school. I had set up a home-made "scaffold" (legs from a trampoline, with square tube extenders and t-bolt adjusters to raise or lower the height) so I could easily walk back and forth the entire 12 foot width without having to go up and down the ladder and then move the ladder over a bit and climb again. Once again, I was needing to be elsewhere from where I was, and decided to take a direct route to where I needed to be...under the right side scaffold leg...again, I took a whack to the noggin, right above the bill of my cap. Jordan, my son, kinda giggled at his "ol' pops" for the jig and utterances that followed. Now I had not one but Two knots in the same dad-gum place, not to mention quite a dent in my skull. Fortunately, neither knot had much affect; I AM rather hard headed
...but that second whack, did succeed in making me recoil from the impact and threw my lower back outta kilter...now I just walk a little crooked. But it IS getting better.
Hang in there, Cat. Things will work out for ya
