Wow. So glad to hear you escaped mostly unscathed considering the circumstances. Maybe the good karma from your efforts to post this excellent thread paid off. Caddy is safe and I have a feeling you know someone who can make the truck look good as new.
Again, happy you were not seriously injured.

Glad to hear you are ok, Jack. There's a lot more invested in you than any vehicle. Things are just things.

Glad you're OK Jack, and the Caddy escaped. It took me years to realise I can't multi task, so thinking of one thing and doing another will result in failure.
Hopefully you will heal quick.

Wow! That was scary!

Just an FYI, really pay close attention to your leg as it heals. An older retired friend of mine recently had a wheel barrow tip over and land on her leg. It looked like an abrasion, but in a few days to a week it swelled up and split the skin. It then was infected and has been a real pain to heal. She recently had to have a vacuum pump system installed to try to relieve the swelling. It's been at least 3-4 weeks and it is still not better.

Bottom line, the healing process can be slow. Take care of yourself.

Currently working on a new garage for the tools...

Hard luck Jack; thank goodness you are still kicking!

Wonder-drug number 2, from my list of useful things; as Bimmer says infection sucks, so coat your wounds liberally with Betadine antiseptic at least twice a day.

Cheers Charlie

Default The motor does not even have to be running.

Glad your ok Jack! I once reached to get the ringing phone not remembering the wheel cocks had been pulled out from the race car. I got my foot caught Under the big racing slick. The car stared to roll with me being pulled in 2 ways. Dislocated my knee (again). Fred26T

Thanks for sharing Jack. Quick thinking on your part evaded worse injury. Good luck on your part saved the Caddy. Heal up and go on.
