And we ALMOST had it on a camera phone. By the time my friend turned around to shoot the pic from a distance, I was half way to the ground already.
You're gonna be sore tomorrow.... big time. Glad you cheated death again though.

Holy crap. Take care of yourself man.

My dad fell two and a half stories high while on the ladder and landed on concrete. The bottom slipped out so he fell with the ladder. Luckily all he got was a bump on his head and aches everywhere else. No broken bones.

Ouch. I know what falling from that height is like. (many a BMX accident)
Hope you didn't mess anything up worse.

Do you mind not trying to kill yourself before WCBF.......We need you in one piece.....Actually I need you in one piece to maintain MY car

But seriously, I am glad that you okay, and that nothing was broken. Lay on the couch (sofa) and teach Bo how to open the fridge and get you a beer

....you mean he hasn't already taught Bo that?
Glad you missed the fence...sorry to hear it happened...I can't imagine falling that far at our age. Heck, I can't even handle a night out dancing anymore...darned knees creak for two days afterwards.

You have got to be kidding me! You aren't very old. I am older than you but I can still dance and stay up all night

I am shocked also that Bill hasn't taught Bo any better tricks yet.

Yeah Bill, a ladder is where I learned most of what I know about physics (or is it fisics?) every action has an equal and opposite reaction. I jumped off the right side of the ladder at about 8 feet up, the ladder fell to the left, and DID come crashing down on a decorative wooden fence, but luckily (?) the fence broke my fall, and as a thank you I broke the fence. Hope there are no more permanent injuries, and get better!
