Back on the road after my accident
« on: November 03, 2018, 09:47:07 PM »
Finally got back on the road after the accident.

Rosie - shes fine luckily as it was MY accident and I was no where near Rosie when I had it !.

Broken leg so I could not drive since late August. I fell of a step ONLY about 2 1/2 inches high. Turned my foot right over, felt terra firma hit the top of my foot and heard CRACK !.

Old age means wondering: Do I really have to struggle to become an expert in something I might never need to do again.

Oh PeterC,
If you keep on like this we may have to arrange a companion for you. Going out on your own may be a thing of the past and then what will poor old Rosie do?

Yes well I am a bit slower and more cautious now. Leg is a bit "rusty" but at least the ankle is fully mobile.

Thanks.

Weird thing is this weekend I walked on the very steps that I did it on. I was surprised to find I was VERY hesitant as I approached the offending step - even though it has now been altered. It was not panic as such but just a stop like you would get as you reach the edge of a cliff !. Easily overcome but none the less !.

PeterC,
I suggest that you don't try out your theory at the edge of a cliff - may be somewhat messy if it goes wrong.
