GWHoops board denizen, elj, reputedly one of the eldest and wisest ever to post online, was injured recently in a rough-and-tumble wrestling match with a much larger and younger opponent at a local recycling facility, out in western Virginia.


elj broke his shoulder in the encounter, and is resting (a bit) at home. Those who know and respect elj (a cast of thousands), can get in touch and wish him well. (Though, with the lovely mrs. elj to help him out, he is likely just fine, and happy to be in her arms.)


If you don't know elj, well, your loss. He did not actually know George Washington, but he was pals with Bushrod Washington. He also ran track at GW and at a major midwestern university, and gave up his spot on an Olympics team, so as to allow a guy names Jesse Owen to run. A few years later, in a less well known bit of good will, elj allowed Bob Mathias to take his place at another international event.


elj was a well know journalist, who gave more than a few tips of the trade to guys named Woodward & Bernstein back in the 70's, after he introduced them to a high ranking FBI agent in an underground parking garage in DC. (Under a topless gp-go bar on K Street.)


elj is not a glory hound, but a regular joe, and, a great guy. If you know him, get in touch again. If not, say hello.

I see he can take calls, letters, donations & pink roses.

(Sorry. Yellow roses. Wrong guy.)

ELJ, how ya doin'?

Sorry to hear of your injury. Follow the doctor's orders. get better no timetable just get better.

First, excuse typos.  This one-finger righthand typing totally sucks.

Anyway, my friend ziik has a rich and facile imagination.  Since there is a scintilla of truth in his report, it doesn't qualify as fake news.

That said, what really happened if far more dull.  Two days before Thanksgiving I was dunping stuff at our local recycling center, and had forgotten to flatten a cardboard box at home.  As most of you know, for some odd reason those cardboard recycle bins have narrow slots, so I stomped on the carton three times.  The thind time, the damn thing stomped back at me. I lost my balance, went reeling leftward for about fifteen feet, gathering speed along the way, until I pitched over and landed full force on thr left shoulder.

I met the ground; the encounter was brief but spirited.  I lost, and broke two bones at the top of my not-so-funny humerous.  Actually, I was lucky on three counts: the collarbone did not break,  I avoided a faceplant, and best of all, I didn't land on the back of my scull.  So after five hours in the ER, it was home to finish plans for 17 family members and friends to join us for Thanksgiving.

We give thanks for things big and small.

Yes, recycling centers can be hazardous. I like the people here in Nashville, who, when they recycle, like to keep their motors running. They always find their cars 15 miles away in a bad part of town. People are learning here what it means to be in an up and coming city.  Its not all good.

By the way, here in Nashville they have curbside recycling once a month, with handy wheeled bins provided by the city. The only thing they don't take is glass. Too many bottle makers here.

ELJ, take care of yourself. I'm always on the lookout for things that want to put me on the ground like wires, hoses, vegetation etc. that want to trip me up. I also had a cardboard experience. They are tough. 


the other mg12/1/2017 5:36:14 PM

Out here we have recycling trucks come by on the same day as garbage pickups, and we have special bins that we load right at home, and they load the trucks at curbside.  Hope you have a quick and painless recovery, ELJ, and, whatever you were doing with your left hand, do it with your right.  And keep posting!

Have a speedy recovery, ELJ.

elj beats up the exercise machines at the local gym, 4-5 times a week. The notion that a giant cardboard box could sneak up and get the best of him really throws me for a loop.

ELJ, even when injured, your outstanding writing skills shine.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

[url=]Clarks Originals Heren[/url] If you are planning being traveling at great altitudes, make sure to provide chewing gum so that your ear are as cozy as is possible. Stick with a brand name which includes long-lasting taste in order to chew one component of periodontal for many years, particularly on expanded journeys.

Choosing a theme before you even commence your organizing stage can help you save lots of time and effort. Make sure you understand what you're choosing before you start planning it. [img][/img]

Hope you have a speedy recovery, but you might want to take Ziik's story over your own. Like I've said my entire life...I've never met a box that could take me.

Thanks all, for the good wishes, and to ziik, my self-appointed publicist.

Tried twice yesterday, unsuccessfully, to post this response. Anyway, thanks all for the kind comments, and also to ziik, my self-appointed publicist.

The poor guy has a busted shoulder, and hysterical blindness, too.  I had better let him know, he can see, if only he opens his eyes!

(His post was posted!)

I hope he is better, maybe the winning game will provide a cure!


ziik the soothsayer12/4/2017 7:58:55 AM

He will be just fine. He's got a wonderful, lovely, musically inclined wife. Don't freat about him, senile one.

[url=]Jeremy Scott Adidas Wings Glow In The Dark[/url] For individuals that cigarette smoke, the easiest way to correct a apnea situation would be to give up smoking. Cigarette smoking is probably the biggest reasons behind obstructive sleep apnea. When folks give up smoking their probability of apnea is lowered and they also could possibly get a full nighttime sleep at night inside events of laying off.

Additionally, it is possible to smash within the berries to make a mixture and jacket your tooth by using it. Once you are done, clean or clean your the teeth, ensuring that to eliminate every one of the fresh fruits. [img][/img]

I recall good discus men, in the 50's, 60's, often threw the javelin, put the shot, too.

ELJ can do all that, and he is a sprinter. He has a bad hip. but is the fastest man to grab a check that I have met. 

He reminds me of Joe Testa. He entered 5 track&field events per meet, took, inevitably, 3 firsts. Shot put, javelin, discus. He always was Number 1. He would have changed his shoes, come in first or second in the sprints, too.  If tho squad needed a win, he'd run the relays, even run the 440. Our coach had only to maximize Joe's talents to win a two team meet. 

Joe became a cancer researcher. 

I take the clear myself. Skip the cream. I don't need Propecia or Cialis.
