when things are going well...

..be careful---shit could be lurking around the next bend

..so, there i was yesterday afternoon, out in the lovely fall afternoon, carefully placing bolt A through lockwasher L and holes P and Q...etc. to assemble legs for new table saw

..and then moving to pick up another part (all parts scattered somewhat randomly on tarp) i chanced to step on the rip-fence which i had not yet attached to the table

..you've seen cartoons of: man steps on rake...

WHACK sharp end of rip-fence leaps into action leaving a mouth-like opening behind my knee


hospital emergency room--12 stitches

no trike riding for a while

i was not designed to be a patient, i make a very bad patient--i don't want to rest and mend--i want to go out and run with the wonder dog

if only i'd had jeans on instead of shorts

if only i'd left parts in the crate until needed

if only i'd looked where i was going

if only...

oh my goodness!

I am soooo sorry.
stitches suck.
hospitals, too.

I send happy thoughts and wish a speedy healing with minimal scarring.


..thanks--things will mend in time
i have no concern about scar
but the whole thing gives me a pain in the ass--stupid, stupid move!

ouch ouch!

i hate emergency rooms...did you have to wait long?

i don't make a good patient either. i'm obstinate, and i just want to get out as soon as i walk in the door. hah.

i hope your stitches heal all right...take care of yourself and be careful.

..thanks for the good wishes, tonya

actually the er went pretty well, since i was bleeding, they whooshed me right in and put on a pressure bandage till the er doc could get around to the sewing job--everybody was quite plesant--it was just another adventure in life to me--"it's just a flesh wound"

sheeit. i'm sorry :( . be a good lad and rest anyway. oh, and make sure to take some zinc to boost healing.

get better!

..i have some old galvanized metal--could i just chew on a piece of that? :)--probably, but not very appitizing

cooking in an iron skillet was a source of iron, but teflon pushed it out of the way

maybe i'll have to start buying multi-v again

btw--the intnl zinc assoc has a fun curson tail at http://www.iza.com/
