For those who weren't aware, I'd been off my work for the last 9 months due to a problem with an old motorcycling injury. Came close to having a foot amputated, which was quite scary as I didn't know of any one legged scaffolders, but I refused to give it up and, although still not 100%, last week I was finally given the ok to return to the rig again. :smile:

Despite what my bank manager may have thought, having all that time off enabled me to attend several meets and roadtrips that I might have otherwise missed so it wasn't all bad. :D

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all the members who sent me well wishes. They really were appreciated.



"THANK YOU!"

This forum truly is the best!

Good to see you got your wish.

Guess we'll have to wait for retirement before having another meets year like 2016.

Hope the North Sea stays calm for you.

See you in the spring.

Glad to hear that you are closing in on 100%, and like others, did not know you had problems with one of your limbs.
Keep doing whatever rehabilitation bits that were taught to you in last several months.

Be safe at work, at home and on the road as well.

Davie I don't think I knew about your foot, I knew you had been signed off work but I didn't realise why and I didn't ask because I don't like to pry into other people's business.

I can only assume that it's your left foot that's afflicted because your right one seems to be fully functional to say the least! :wink:

Hope it's not too much of a bind going back to work, see you April if not before.

All the best
Col

Davie. glad you are on the mend.

I knew you were off work but didn't know why, sorry you have to return to the grindstone.

Earn loads of dough and turn it into memories.

See you in 2017, Scotland tour or before.
