While going down the stairs the other day one of the family dogs took out my footing and down i went, ouch !!!! that hurts !!!. just though i had badly sprained it but was very sore in one spot. Went to the dr.'s yesterday to get it checked out and sure enough the x rays show its broke. Have just got back from the hospital with a new fiberglass cast on the right foot and leg all the way up to the knee. The good news is that there is now plenty of time for the trains, as long as I can do it sitting down.. Have to stay off it completely for the next 48 hrs then can hobble around, so its off to the couch for some good reading, then in a couple of days will get at some switch building and scratchbuilding the logging repair sheds and warehouse.. and of course some time on The Guage....talk with u soon..Ron..
