    Rattletrap
    (643 items)

    This $200 Barn Hanger was the last sign I bought before becoming "The Village Idiot" on June 19 and climbing bareback on a horse my son was considering buying. He had all the signs of being gentle until I started riding with no one close by. Of course I had no saddle and only a halter so when he started bucking and busting my male parts on his high withers, I bailed off as soon as I could! Unlike the Bull Riders I see on TV, I landed flat on my back and ripped my pelvis 3" apart plus serious internal damage! No more sign pickin for me the Dr says as I can't put weight on either leg for 3 mos. after that no lifting for a very long time!!! At 77 I also got the bad news that I have osteoporosis so my bones are like Sheetrock. Not good! We've got 96 Banjo signs in the air & I dearly want to get the next few found, bought and installed! Stupid Stupid things bring consequences to us old guys!!! :(:(

      It's 4am and you're commenting on my pill collection? I'm a wheelchair dude and it's not easy to roll thru barns etc. sad months ahead!
    3. Caperkid, 3 years ago
      Hey RattleTrap I am sorry you got hurt was only saying I do stupid things myself, knocked my front teeth out last week. The only bright side was the meds. Apologies .

      Caperkid,
      I was just kidding with u because of the early hr. I couldn't sleep so wrote the Note. Very very sorry about your teeth! That is sad and replacements/posts aren't cheap! U can buy a lot of very cool signs for the price of new teeth these days.
      I'm old fashioned and don't do the pain meds. Tylenol for 2 weeks and over it. Yes I can feel that I've got broken parts but I deserve to feel it. Maybe remind me not to do Stupid things at my old age?

      Get well Rattletrap! Take the best of care and mend. Sounds like you'll just be picking smalls for awhile!
    7. valentino97 valentino97, 3 years ago
      Get well Rattletrap! Sorry to hear about your accident and your pain. Yes, it sucks when we realize we aren't bullet-proof anymore. I am sure you have some people you can direct to hang, drag, lift your treasures?

      Sorry about your rodeo accident. Pain sucks! Sleep? Try popcorn with Parmesan on it. Works. Look it up.

      Akrodog,
      No places for small signs. Just do big signs. I need a sign rack on my elect chair I'm told

      Blunderbuss2,
      Thx for the helpful ideas. Accident was a month ago today & ive got 2 more months before I can walk with a shuffler they tell me! Not my idea of fun! I didn't dismount like the guys on Bull Riders! They just walk/limp away! I couldn't move!

      Thx for the well wishes. I'm now sign hunting by phone and Facebook but not much luck so far and a lot less fun than digging through an old barn.

      @ age 77 you are just a kid. I've got a buddy who is 89 and drives his 67 Vette like he did @ 16. I bet you in another 6 months you will be out there picking like before. I will say I really enjoy your post a lot. Love the stuff you pick. You can't keep a good picker down for long.

      I haven't quit picking. It's just very difficult as I'm in a wheelchair and can't put any weight on either leg so need help getting in and out of the car/truck and everything is a real ordeal. Just got back from the Iowa Gas show and a 3000 mi trip with my truck and trailer. Brought home some signs and poles. Haven't quit yet but it's a lot harder
