    Every Birthday.

    Lots Is a Relative Term, Lol

    nose, left arm twice, right arm once, both hands, several fingers and one thumb, both legs, collarbone, skull, and sternum.  Never broke any two at the same time - LOTS of time in casts, lol.

    In July 2014 I had a motorcycle accident.

    I broke my forearm in multiple places. The docs pretty much saved the arm using thin plates screwed to my arm but my last visit the x-rays show that 3 screws have broken their heads off allowing the plate to lift off the bone . Chinese screws no doubt bought on eBay
