Gary, that was me, alright. Nothing hurt except my pride. I was standing with the R.I.T. company when my feet went out from under me. Turns out we all were standing on some ice that sloped just little bit towards the street. I guess the two years of physical therapy worked, at least that part about how to fall.
I had planned to stop by yesterday. That is your shift day, isn't it? Well that didn't happen so how about I try for Thursday? Got the pictures and want to deliver them to you guys. Stay safe!
