Mike:

Our prayers are with you as you recover from this spill, and we pray that it will be a speedy and complete recovery. Thankful too that you were able to survive this one.. we want to be able to meet you in person one day, so you gotta take care of yourself.

I have come to understand the Pucker Factor as well, and your pics of the accident sure brought up some recent memories of close calls when operating a Cub with a heavy implement. Boy.. I gotta keep this one in mind. I am just relieved that you were able to walk away from this one.

Mike, you have many, many friends on this forum. You have touched many of us in many ways, and well you touched Em and I very personally. Being the recipient of so many blessings it is an honour to be able to return just a tiny fraction of what you have given. Sorry too that it took a while to post, Didn't see it the few times I was on.. lately been busy with new addition.. she is a peach.

Please do relax, take care and rest. We will be praying for you daily.. (+)

It's amazing how quickly your whole day can change.

I think all the posts say it all but I'll just add mine to say how glad we are it didn't turn out worse.

and...

Ya-all be careful out there!!!

Mike - Feel better soon, and thanks for the wakeup call. For some crazy reason, my loboy has always "felt" safer then when using FIL's cub. Obviously that feeling is misleading.

Dave , I am feeling pretty much ok now. I still have some bruises and sore spots, but i'm getting back into the swing of things around here today. Will be exactly one week ago in a few minutes. I have been healing fast. :D

Tuffy has not healed at all :twisted:

Well, you are the one that is important. Glad to see you are doing a little better. Tuffy will have to wait. You need to get your strength back. Take your time and heal.

Dave
