Glad it was no worse! I always hate it when the only thing holding gives way, and its so true, we just dont bounce as good as we once did.
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

Hope all is well, MM.  One time I took one of those but landed on the top of the turtle sand box.  It had already been pushed in several times by the grandkids.  That helped provide a cushioned landing and I laughed at how funny I must have looked to the neighbors. The catfish looks real good.   I use to go to Sue and Charlies at Jonathan Creek area of Kentucky Lake when I was young.  Excellent catfish, hush puppies and a large onion.  Yum!

The knot has mostly gone down but the ole back is still mighty sore.  No leaning back in a chair or truck seat.  :-\

Glad you're on the mend.  Whenever I take a tumble the first thing I do after getting up is look around to see if there are any witnesses  ;) ;D

Glad to hear you're getting better my friend!
 Please don't re-post your toe pictures....but, if you look at those DanGed toe pics, it might make your back not hurt so bad!

Thanks for the well wishes, and "that" picture is........well, it just is.   :-\   :D

That tumble was seven weeks ago.  I am OK, but it is still tender to the touch.

There are some of us that are the choir you are preaching to, a tumble now is more painful, and longer lasting, at least, or at last, I have decided chain saws are for younger guys.

I reckon we all have to have a good fall every once in a while just to keep us humble. Got mine Thursday night. Son came by and brought his dogs for me to keep a couple of days. One is a big doberman. I started to step sideways just as she came up beside me. Over her I went and hit hard.

Friday thought I must have busted a rib. Hurt to move. Took some Ibuprofen and the next day is was mostly better except when I cough. You can get hurt in the most simple of ways. Tromp all over the woods and then get hurt in the house. :o
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

When I saw the post subject the first thing I thought of was the bicycle you got a year or so back, thought there would be a good tale of a out of control crash.  While an account of a gravity refresher course is notable, ( I hope you have fully recovered) a good bike wreck has the potential for a epic tale. We are waiting....... :D

Yup, when I saw this topic I had to go back and see who took the tumble.  Wow, it was me so I then had to read about what had happened because I had forgotten.  smiley_headscratch  Made my butt hurt again just thinking about it.  :-\
