    It wasn't six feet but felt like it.
    The unluckiest guy at Steamport was Dave H who managed to ride his bike under a Southport Corporation bus , and was walking down the shed one day when a shard of 6mm glass fell from the roof and stabbed him in the back.

    I went off the roof twice onto the coal heap in the yard next door.
    Dave was always doing something to himself.

    Yeah! ...and it was me who took you to A&E. I still remember what you said to the doctor but I'd better not repeat it here LOL! Keep safe.
    Cheers,

    The starting handle of that f...ing old cement mixer took out my front teeth when it 'kicked back'. The real pi$$er was that I was starting it for someone else!
