Right folkses - our own Spademan (Steve E.) and myself were arranging to hook up for a short ride Saturday, and so had been E-mailing back and forth this week. I didn't hear from him yesterday at all, and there was still no reply today, so, I called his office number..... 'Dave' (?) answered, and said he was off sick, and when I asked him what with, I was told he'd broken his foot in a fall from the bike (I presume the night before last, and that he was at the jumps). I called his home number expecting to find a very pissed off and sore Steve on the other end of the phone, but instead found myself talking with his wife. She informed me he was _still_ in hospital, and that last she heard, he was undergoing surgery. They'd told her to phone back in an hour to see if the surgery had been successful/how successful. This doesn't sound too good to me, but I don't have any more details yet - she sounded as if she may have been quite upset, so I didn't question her as to what exactly had happened/what state his foot appeared to be in, just asked if she'd pass on my best, and left it there for now. I'll post more as I find it out - I might wait until Mon/Tues or even a bit later before I call his home again, give then time to sort themselves out a bit. Here's hoping he'll be alright, and soon able to ride again. Shaun aRe - Heal up soon Diggerboy.
