    Anyone else ever fallen off the roof while putting up christmas lights?
    My mother bought a bunch of lights today and told me to go up and put them up over the house. Our roof had just been replaced a few months ago and I guess one of the shingles was not tacked down and I'm the lucky one who stepped on it. It was like surfing on the roof. My brother took a picture and caught me in mid air half way down to the gound missing the rose bush by 2-3 feet. Im tring to upload the pic but the wire is not communicating with the computer. I'm ok though.. After hitting the ground I just thought of the old line, "Theres no more yankie in my wankie."

    jeeze, that sucks man, at least you are alright!

    Reminds me of my mom when I was still living there. She would just buy a new electric track light, or some other thing that has to be installed, and tell me to go install it. Mind you, this was how I learned electrical work, and got shocked a few times....

    Man, glad you're OK!
    About six years ago I was trying to get the lights for our Christmas tree untangled and figure out why they wouldn't light.
    I found the answer by sticking my fingers onto one socket that had lost a bulb. Of course, I should have unplugged the strand first.
    "BBZZZZZTT!!" Got a nice little electrical shock outta that one. I yelped like a puppy and my wife just laughed.

    Now I've got this image in my head of the Fett tumbling down a roof and screaming the whole way.

    Surfing down a roof...sounds like a painful, yet fun ride. I agree with FettOfficer...where was your JetPack? Glad you walked away ok. So I met the guy who played Long Duck Dong about a year or so ago where I work, and I swear he didnt look a day older than he did in that movie from like 25 years ago...SO ARE WE GONNA SEE THE PIC PLEASE???

    I need to get a new cable for my camera to connect to the comp. My brother was using the cameras memory instead of the SD card.

    I've never fallen off of a roof, but that sounds kinda painful. that must be at least an 8 foot drop. Did it knock the wind out of ya? I hope ya get that pic up soon, it's what we're all waiting for.

    Glad you are ok. Locally, we had an off duty fire fighter who died of his injuries from a fall putting up lights.
