    It's good your looking in winter so you can see how far down they draw the lake. My wife is in real estate over here in Hancock county & we have seen some really good buy's over on Norris.

    Well, 18 month house build....95% by myself & no real (big) injury. So, last week I'm down at the shop taking down the Wilson cellphone repeater antenna to move up to the log house. I stepped off a flat 8' high roof onto my 17' (in A frame configuration) Gorilla ladder. Like an idiot I didn't kneel down first then step but was standing up(yes I know better)....yep the ladder started to tip sideways due to my weight transfer. So, instead of going down with the ladder I decided to bail out(no parachute) & jump. I did the 'ole tuck & roll letting my legs absorb the impact....and it worked! I rolled over thinking, "wow nothing snapped"....then I see the ladder enroute getting larger and larger like some giant chunk of the spacelab...."SLAM"! The apex of the "A" hit my right shin just below the knee

    No, I didn't go to the ER and yes it blew up like a mad puffer fish that night. It went down the next day & other then some discomfort it seemed to be getting better until 8 days later when it really started to swell and turn a myriad of really neat colors. Off I went to the Dr's office for x-rays...nope nothing broken, but I have orders to be off my feet for 3-4 days or face possible Compartment Syndrome. What's that you ask? I had to ask because I never heard of it....basically a hematoma type injury that swells so much it cuts off the blood supply to the muscles....this is not good.

    Swelling is down some now, but man I hate sitting around with a leg in the air



    I think my shin modelling days are over..............

    Ouch, that had to hurt. Another career choice down the drain--not much demand for left legged shin models.

    Follow the doc's orders or your next wood working project will be a peg leg.

    Sorry about the fall. At least you didn't break something. Yes, you'll want to seriously take care of that leg. I have an older relative who got a hematoma (internal bleeding) that pushed up against a nerve, caused unrelenting pain, and seriously handicapped one leg, very possibly permanently.
