How did it happen?
He was up a ladder taking down the Christmas lights-his wife was at work AND
He falls off the ladder "yuck"
Seems he has dislocated his foot-lost tendons for 3 toes they operated on him to put his foot back around the right way and he will be off work for 6 weeks or more.....oh I forgot he is also in a lot of pain..
Luckily his neighbour heard him scream for help and she called the ambulance.
(Thanks neighbour for saving our friend) also this neighbour sat with him till ambulance came then she proceeded to clean the mess up before Lisa got home.(thanks heaps again neighbour I am so glad Lisa didn't have to clean that up)
But what I would like to say is my friends have no love lost for these neighbours.
To be kind they are fruit loops(the neighbours not our friends) and there has been arguments in the past over the years but the "weirdo's were just ignored .
Anyway Lisa is going to see the wife and say a grateful thanks to her for all she has done.
But my question is -----(and this is a deep one for me)
If you disliked someone and heard them cry for help -WOULD YOU DO IT ?.Would you help..???..I would really like to think I would and I will remember this in case I ever hear this cry for help (YA HOO help me)-that even though they may be weirdo's everyone needs help sometimes.
Had to show you a photo of Alan and didn't want to show you the broken foot one but here is Alan doing his best MR HAPPY impersonation...taking nice drugs here ....
This photo was taken after he got in trouble from the nurses for not staying still.
What a BIG KID- but we love him and wish him a speedy recovery....
Also take it easy Lisa you know what men are like when they have a cold-their whole world is collapsing and they need help for everything well in your case increase that by 100% -enjoy ha ha
PS-Moral to the story.
Don't take your Christmas lights down each year - just leave them up for the next and following years,
Now if Alan had listened to this advice this would never have happened.
Note from Kev -This would never have happened Alan if you didn't put your lights up.Thats why I didn't put ours up this year it was an OH and Safety issue......
Ya HOO I need help my wife is trying to strangle me.....
