    So very, very true, Uncle Bob! I also think back to a couple of my wrecks in go karts, then later in race cars. Dad was always there to tell me that I'd pay for that one later in life. At the time I thought he was just some clueless old man, but as some of the misuse and abuse I've done to my body over the years I now have to admit that he sure was right!

    Crikey but I hear you on that!
    Forty years or more ago I dropped a gearbox on my right knee while I was lying underneath the machine. I managed somehow to extricate myself, then got from my workshop to home by using a shovel as a crutch.
    Now, if I have to stand for too long my right knee will suddenly just give out.
    If I'm fortunate I can save myself by grabbing something, but if not...I'm base over apex onto my nose or backside.
    Not a pretty sight.

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.

    If that video was extant I could make a fortune selling 'pay-per-view' shows!
