More likely Whip wears those boots 24/7 due to the fear of having his fractured limbs becoming immortalized through Tee-shirt art!!! grin


Nice report, Eddddd..... if somewhat brutal on the seriously injured Whip.

Michael, ignoring the fact that the injury was just barely worse than a hangnail lurk, my thinking is that I need to take my shots when I can since I'm fully aware that I could be the next one to be the one laying on the ground with cameras snapping pictures of me. tongue

Hangnail my ass......I still can't pull in the clutch, but it is getting better every day.

My wrist is definitely the problem.

I hope you never go down.

Glad to hear it's getting better, but I have to know:

If I go down, how long will it take before I see your smiling face, partially obscured by your camera, pointing at me?
