Well, got some bad news the other day.  Not mine though but it seems as though my brother (Slickman – Who is an Iron Worker in the Big Apple) got hurt on the job.  While do some grinding work on a bridge platform, the grinding blade came loose and collided with his chin.  So he has 40 stitches in the chin and some serious swelling.  Slickman is one of the hardest working guys I know, and not being able to work everyday cause of this is going to just make him totally stir crazy.  But heal he must.   His doctors dont know much about the prognosis and will not know until some of the swelling goes down the GAPING GASH starts to heal.  Thats what they called the wound, that does not even sound good.  So penelope and I will be here to help him in any way we can, much the same way he was there for me when I needed it back when…just a quick hope slickman gets better soon thought.

  1. Super OUCH! I hope Slickman heals really quickly and doesn’t go too stir crazy! His work sounds dangerous (at least to me who is scared of heights). From the sounds of it, he’s very very lucky. And lucky to have such great brotherly support. 🙂

    Yeah thanks…I will pass that to him…he is doing okay so far…..i too would NOT be an ironworker….thanks for stopping in

  3. My thoughts and prayers are with your brother Steve. Tell him to try to enjoy relaxing (and opiates) for a couple weeks. Lying around with a couple books and a TV sounds really, really nice to me right now. Especially with a script of Perks….
