That left a mark...

Was out in the wood lot yesterday afternoon. Had to get off the 800 Ford to hitch a log. Between my bulky Muck boots, the brake pedals and my natural not-so-cat-like-reflexes I wound up taking a header off the tractor and down the hill. Funny how stuff that wouldn't phase you at 27 ends up leaving you feeling like you spent the day cage fighting a grizzly bear at 57... :roll:

Doesn't that get us into, "If a tree falls in the forest and there's no one there to hear it, does it make a noise?" thing? :lol:

And if you get it x-rayed and it is broke, he'll say "Stay off it and let it heal".

Helping my buddy and his son harvest a couple weeks ago, I learned how to block the gravity wagons right the first time to minimize trips up and down the ladder into the cab. Then I watch his kid skip all the steps out of the combine, I had to tell him to enjoy the "spryness" while he can. I just know if I jumped out of there, several things would rupture, split, sever, leak, dribble, etc.

You looked pretty spry when you stopped at my place a few days ago. Those little tumbles off tractors and stuff is just to keep you in shape walking up the hill and climbing back on. Stop my place and let me get you a little bigger tractor, one that you need to climb a ladder to get on, and then you can practice a real slip and fall. Be careful as it is going to freeze and snow which improves your chances of slipping and falling.

After crash landing several times, I've learned to used explicit language to immediately express my discontent.

Look around to see if there are any witnesses.

If there are any witnesses, then continue with the lack of vocabulary and find something to throw at whatever you fell off.

Folks will figure you've suffered brain damage and usually don't laugh at you.

If there are no witnesses, then it never happened and there is nothing to deny or apologize for.

Hope this helps.

Wait till you get to 70 plus!! Black Friday, I went to my friendly CNH and Kubota dealer for some stuff. I asked if they had any more steel shipping crates that I could steal. and they said there were some. I loaded 6 into my PU and came home. I pulled one off the truck and carried it into my shop to cut it apart. As I was laying it on the floor it slipped out of my hand and a bracket welded to it landed on the top of my RH foot. It is still badly swelled and I can't wear my Wellington steel toed work boots that I had on when it slipped from my hand.
I was at my GPs office earlier this week for a 6 month check up and Doc said that I needed to get it X-rayed to see if anything was broken. I told him that I was sure something was broken in there, because this same foot was smashed back in my twenties when a heavy tongue fell of a tractor drawbar and smashed it. He said, if you don't want it X-rayed, stay off it and let it heal. "Yea; OK Doc." We will see if it gets better, in the next couple weeks.

Ahhh , what's a matter with you guys ?? I'll be 57 in a little over two weeks , and I still bounce pretty good. Yer probably just out of practice, get out there and fall down more often, till you get good at it, lol. I think as you get older the gravitational pull of the earth just gets stronger.

As I read this I just got finished stripping and shingling a small roof by myself while my partner has a few days off. Still work like this regularly. I've seen my last birthday in the 50's.

Heck I don't even need a tractor, while on vacation at camp my wife said why don't you relax on the hammock, ok good idea not. Trying to get on it and over I went backwards two backward summersaults down hill with rocks and brush for a landing. To make matters worse my laughed and said she wished she had the camera. Most of the scrapes and bruises were where the sun don't shine.

Our son was up on his road tractor the other day hooking up brake lines and his foot caught in something and he did a face plant on the ground.
Hurt his pride as much as his face.

Heard on the news that a guy was killed when he upset his tractor a few weeks ago. In the news story it said it was a 800 series Ford. Never known them to give the make of tractor before.

Give it 5 more years...

You won't need an excuse to feel like you've been in a cage match!

Be careful out there!

Yep. Closer to 63 than 62, and one hip is about to be replaced.
