Good things happens when a refrigerator fall's on you?

Well back in June of 2010, I just got done with FFG3 Spitting Image and was thinking of what to do next. My land lord ( who just passed away last Nov.) just went out and bought brand new double door refrigerator for the apartment I live in. Her handy man ( her 65 year old uncle) and I had to take both doors off to get this monster up the stairs.
 Half way up the stairs he lost his grip and, well....the fridge rolled right over me. After going to the hospital and finding out I now have 2 herniated disk's and a dislocated one. Thank goodness for my work has short term disability so I was able to get a pay check each week.
 With nothing to do for the foreseeable future, might as well start on my next project. One of my friends said why don't you try and sell one of your stories. I thought " not a bad idea, but just about everything has been done" as in location wise.
 So after 2 weeks of drug induced numbness, one of my favorite movies came on TV "Force 10 from Navarone" A world war 2 movie with a great cast ( Robert Shaw and Harrison Ford just to name a few). Then it clicked, A DAM! Dont think it's ever been done. Then it was all down hill. Everthing just rolled for the story, the plot's, the map's and so on. But then who to offer it too?
 My first thought was the nice people at Expeditious Retreat Press. So I sent a email off to Joseph Browning about my module. A couple days later they agreeded to buy my adventure.
 So I would like to thank Joseph Browning and Suzi Yee for publishing my idea. Here is my first published module, I hope you enjoy it!
