Official NYC Spring 2011 Meet March 19th - Page 2  

post #16 of 405

Sadly, I may have to miss this one Aaron.

 

I broke my foot & arm this past weekend. Will be laid up for at least six weeks, which is right about the meet date. I'll see how I am the week before.

For my job, I travel back and forth to Rochester every couple of weeks (usually fly, and then get stuck overnight because of the snow, but being a 21 year Xerox veteran, I can say that I love that city (although it's too damn cold from October until May). There's an old joke about Rochester, and that is, there are 2 seasons in Rochester. August and winter smile.gif .


Thanks for the suggestions!

The joke about two seasons in Rochester is definitely true. But when it is nice here, it's extremely nice.

Wow, that really sucks, Jimmy. I hope you get better soon. 

 

Remember what Yogi says, "The bedroom is safer than in the woods".

thanks for the sympathies & well-wishes guys.

 

I fell off my parent's roof after removing the snow. my own fault. I got complacent, forgot safety at the very end, & paid the price.

Sorry to hear this Jimmy,

  Listen to a lot of music while you heal.

    But what the hell where you thinking going on a roof  with snow on it.

Unless you have a flat roof you need to clear, just look at what happened to jimmy let mother nature take care of the snow
