without having to use his wheeled walker.

Mate, having to had to use one for only a couple of weeks after getting the hip done, I can understand how he felt, being able to do without! ;D :cup:

I always found the damned things were too long for me so I had to cut the end off.

I find them too short, but I'm sure as sh*t not cutting the end off..

The soft sweet Scottish / Australian accent mix of the ER DR that I saw through weary eyes at 5am this morning.  Petite Slim, blonde hair tired and very attractive  young lady .
After 23 hrs awake, apart from a work place incident / injury [ damaged left wing joint ] and hours of sitting in ER, This young lady DR put a smile on my dial after a looong day .
Got to love the dedication of those in the health system ..

Yeah,  thanks . Just a  bit sore when you move it certain ways, Fizz ..     looks  like a chip of bone may have came away / plus some ligament damage maybe .. Scans Review by orthapedic surgeon tomorow .
Sounds worse  when you say that bit, but with a bit of luck  it'll just be a muscle tear and overstressed elbow joint that will heal up quick ..

Felt like punching the wanker out, still had my good dominant arm ......  Old bloke full of grog faceplanted an old lady that went back peddaling / falling backwards, like a stack of domino's    . Instinctively threw the arm   out to grab her as she went down like a tree, to stop her smashing the back of her head on the ground ..... and    POP / CRACK went the elbow ..

Spent the morning with my RFS brigade practising, checking equipment.
They have already attend a few Hazzard Reduction events last week.
Preparing for the upcoming season.

The look on an eldery(92) lady's face today after I had built a step for her 16 Yo Jack Russell so he could get up on the bed with her.
And now I have had 4 more phone calls from her friends, asking can I do the same for them.
The little things in life people, the little things.
Take care.

Great Service.
Spoke to Track Trailer In Melbourne at 12.30pm Monday for a part to be sent to Bundaberg.
Was to be sent by post but from my multiple previous experiences discussed my concern about Australia Post being able to get anything around the country despite their own back slapping (pre COVID or otherwise) as we were to go on a trip on the 8th.
10.00am Tuesday (the following day) the parts were sitting on my table in Bundy.
Track decided to use Toll without mentioning it.
Thanks again Paul at Track.
