Remember that one day???

(1/6) > >>

William Schnake:
Remember that one day when the temperature was -3 and the windchill was -14 and you where out at the shop and fell and broke your right shoulder?!?!?  After all of that you had to drive to the hospital to get it your shoulder set....Oh wait that's how my day has gone so far.  Finally home.  Oh, and more good news, shows pickup this coming weekend with three sold out shows and one arm to mix with.  This is going to be fun.

Hope everyone is having a better day than I am.

Wow, that sucks, Bill! I remember driving myself to the ER with a sprained wrist...that was bad enough, and in summer, too! If you've been holding out on buying some hi-traction winter footwear, now's the time to go all in so you don't do it again. All the best and here's hoping for a speedy recovery, and acts that play so well that they can all be mixed with one hand  ;)

Yeah.  Now, I kinda feel guilty about complaining about the cold north wind today.

Sorry to hear about your mishap, Bill.  Hope the weather warms and your recovery is quick and complete.

Wow Ray.  Now I don't feel nearly as bad.  My biggest problem is being able to use my right hand, however I can use just the left if need be.  I don't have to move or setup anything on these first shows.  Just mix.

Ike, I was in shorts and tennis shoes.  I was just out to put some lock de-icer on the main lock so we can all work tomorrow.  Anyway, just a dumb thing I did.  Thank.

Bill
