Stupidity is often painful, and I just did something really stupid. Tried to go down the stairs to the aft cabin, but the stairs were removed to change the engine oil. I may get a fat ankle out of this...
Yeah, the ankle is a little fatter today, and it is blooming into a pretty picture (I'll give it another day or so). It COULD have been a so much worse outcome! It is basically a 3-4 foot drop straight into the engine compartment, and would have been even further if I hadn't stepped onto the oil can. Basically jammed the ankle, skinned the opposite knee, and my neck and shoulders are a bit sore today too.
It was bad enough yesterday that I was questioning whether I would be able to follow through on our plans to attend church this morning. Regular readers will know that I have been missing church. So this morning when the ibuprofen kicked in, we started out real slow. We allowed over an hour to go what I believe is about a mile, starting with those 75 steps! We made it in PLENTY of time!
This is a busy building! THREE services held here on Sunday mornings, and a day school during the week.
And here you can see what I mean about 'House of the Lord':
