The Dunkirk spirit! They don't like it up 'em, etc.

Just to reinforce Terry's "we shall never give in" comment, some here may remember a thread I started around 2 or 3 years ago, recounting how I stepped backwards off a village hall stage while setting up for a ceilidh, fell flat on my back and broke a rib.

Great fun, I don't think - but I got up and played the gig, admittedly sitting down for the first half, but standing for the second half. It hurt more at the next day's gig when I was in too much pain to drive and had to get a couple of the band members to come for me in a space wagon and escort me and my gear to the pub!

But I did the gigs. There's no treatment these days for a broken rib - just accept that it hurts like buggery and get on with what stuff you can!
