    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    Tell me you're not a former engineer...

    The laws of gravity don't apply to you why?

    I'm really glad it didn't turn out worse. Get better soon. And remember, Murphy is out there and he's very patient.

    It's worse than that.  I was a telephone technician in the 80's and grew up on a ladder.  I'm fearless on one!  Then I went to school and became an engineer!  Well at 58 my fearlessness caught up to me!
    Distance is not an issue, but the wind can make it interesting!

    Yup, I used to be a rabid tree climber. Thought myself part monkey. I was invincible!

    Then I fell outta one. A trip to the hospital later and I was cured of my invincibility!

    Funny how invincibility doesn't want to hang around us fogeys (or nearly fogeys) anymore... I guess we're just not as fun as the young bucks.  😉

    I can't say much about ladders . When I put up shop 2 I went down 6 times that summer . ( not a fast learner ) So I bought a boom bucket truck ..... had to climb down a rope when that quit . ( still healing up from that brain fart ) Seems like most jobs throw in some pain somehow .

    The older I get, my ladder height decreases.

    Sorry, get well soon.
