Another breakage

Okay, don't start - I have a really good excuse this time.  My mum's managed to break her ankle. 'Nuff said. So blogging, like workshop time, will be hit and miss for the foreseeable future. Supposed to be getting plates and such put in this afternoon, but other than that I know no more, so don't ask. :-)

And before you mention my recent run of breaking things; no, it wasn't me!


  1. Sorry to hear that, Alf. Please give your Mum our best wishes for a speedy recovery.

  2. Al,

    Sorry to hear you're mum's hurt herself. Please give her mine and Greta's best wishes for full and fast healing ;-)


    P.S. I hear that it's quite fun to whittle or turn a walking stick, could be a good excuse for a bit of shop time...

  3. Thank you gentlemen - and Greta - I will pass on your best wishes when I see her. Unfortunately the ankle's too swollen to be operated on just yet it seems, so we're still rather up in the air on knowing what's happening. Heigh ho.

    Ah, orthopedicly-induced workshop time; sounds a ) good, and b) familiar. Anyone getting deja vu? Starting to worry about next February now... (see Feb '07 if you are reading this in puzzlement)

  4. I think that's a perfect excuse to get out to the workshop to knowck up crutches, walking sticks and so one. You're just not thinking clearly.

    Cheers Mike R

  5. Alf, please be certain your mom knows there's a big gaggle of supporters out here in the eworld who send her best get well wishes, happy thoughts and a prayer. Perhaps you'll want to add a foot stool to the walking stick etc. for keeping that ankle elevated while healing. Good luck.
