    Cliff, you sir, are a man that towers above the herd! Thank you for sharing. I've had a few friends that have had similar experiences and made amazing comebacks. Fuel Altered ace Nasty Dave Benjamin is someone you might want to look up if you want to compare notes with someone who battled the dragon and won.
    Keep pushin hard bro, you're setting standards and inspiring people with everything you accomplish!

    Looks to be duct work issues, my craw space is air conditioned!

    You know pouring gas on a fire out of can is no no... but less fluid and more vapor is the worst. You should just vent the can and store in shade.

    If you dont mind a half naked fat a**, check out i just did a little welding in the video i just posted. lolol
    Thanks for the support! Very much like to meet a fellow dragon slayer. :)

    Well had a fun day today playing around with my youngest girl! A/C works better in the garage, should been in there all week. :)
    My brother has an A/C guy coming over tomorrow to check out the duct work. I'll be glad to see the power bill go down!
    If things were back to normal, i'd have half a mind to drop a dirt bike engine in the old golf cart. lol I feel great doing something...; was my best welding but it will hold.

    Cliff...LESS MEDS!!! HA Ha! At least wear shoes when welding. Don't want to hear next that you were electrocuted. My Lord, you were the kid (like me) "running with sissors".
    I hope your air conditioning gets real cold.

    Met the Therapist, who will be taking on my rehabilitation after each surgery, yesterday.
    Very impressed with this guys knowledge of my type of injury. Turns out its very similar to heart replacement patients. They stretch out the arm during surgery for access and during the process a brachial plexus injury occurs. I was thinking that it took months of being stretched out to cause this injury when actually it may have been just hours!
    My specialist in FL lost my records I sent them 2 weeks ago! I have to resend it. I certainly hope thats not a sign of things to come.

    Certainly keep him in our prayers. What was the source of ignition? Water heater? Just heard of similar accident in this area.

    Thanks TP.
    The source was an open fire pit. This very one.

    Elbow surgery is scheduled for the 16th of August! 2 weeks away! Going to be there for a long stay. 2 weeks of rehab there before I can go home. Long hotel stay that I'm not looking forward to! Going to miss my Mo, something bad!

    Thanks! Terrible thing to happen to a boy! I've contacted the local fire chief and I'm going to be a prop for his talks with fire bug kids... Hoping I can save some from my mistake. ;)

    Surgery has been moved back a few days for scheduling, i'll leave on the 17th, pre op on the 20th, surgery on the 23rd, then rehab every day till the 5th of sept. 1 final visit with the Dr. and I'm heading home on the 6th or 7th. Long trip in a bloody hotel room (they wont give me in-patient) well it is what it is. I think the hardest part of this ordeal is not having work to do. I've had a job since I was 12 and I am having a hard time with not earning my own money. :(

    I really appreciate all of you and I'm biting at the bit to get back to work!

    Again, Thank you all!!
