You what? And you didn't tell me? I could have saved you all that trouble and whipped it off for you quick as you like, and replaced it with a nice new whalebone one. A quick course of leeches and you'd be fine!

Hey Kinley, yup my first Inversion of hopefully many :):):) certainly made my day.

Hey morag, i think it may be the closest i ever get to heaven aswell :lol: thanks for the comment :)

Hey Mband, it should be fine, if in doubt just walk on it more i say :)

and i should have expected as much from yourself Caberfeidh :), i'll save any scurvy sea dog remedies until its black, green, smells like 7 year old cheese and almost falling off on its own :)

Glad to see you had a good day, Ross. Inversions are brilliant and always make the day special.

Got to admit you're a very brave man. Do you seriously eat at McDonalds? ... :wtf: :wink:
