One evening while working on an open cast coal site on a night shift at Bedlington for

Wimpey my Father was up the jib of the drag line greasing it. Some one below started the

drag line and the cable ran over Father's left hand taking two of his fingers in the process !!

0424 GMT here, good morning, I hope you're well Sam.
I haven't seen Sandroper post in a long time, and some of the other regulars have disappeared.

Yes Sam, I woke about 7 am to let a cat cat out, keeps me busy :-)

The last time I saw Sandgroper post on here he was mentioning needing an op on his hand.

I hope I'm not hogging his thread  ???
