The 3 levels of stamp mess is basically built on the side of a steep cliff, and sherro's recent google drive-by pic of 4 The Tor Walk showed just my letter box, 100 metres downhill from the house. (See the lowest photo below.)
stampboards member A-One Stamps knows all about that driveway after today. Only too well.
He popped by to do some buying and selling, and drove down my driveway on his way home. As he has done 100 times before.
And somehow managed to roll his car onto its roof, with him trapped inside.
His nice car is now a total and complete write off. Both sides, front, bonnet and roof, and most glass.
I stress Marty is fine, with just a few cuts and lacerations from climbing out all over the glass from the smashed driver's window and windscreen, whilst trapped upside down.
Very lucky the car stopped where it did. There is a straight 20 foot drop onto a concrete road, to the side it stopped at. And had it rolled a little further, I'd have needed to phone an ambulance, or a hearse, and not a tow truck.
I was watching him drive off waving goodbye, and it was like a scene from some bad movie unfolding.
And many folks wonder why I prefer mailing goods, than personal pick-up.
