    Stories from the garage...

    Well. It finally happened. If you play with fire long enough, you WILL get burned.

    December 14th, I got in a hurry. Got complacent. Got lazy. And it happened. I had an angle grinder get away from me. 4-1/2 x 1/8 cutoff disc...sawed thru my thumb in about a tenth of a second.

    Still healing...got some nerve damage and numbness but, I should be back to 100% by summer.

    Enjoy...





    Be careful. It only takes a split second.

    I have five stitch scars in each thumb- buried a box cutter in one and wrestled a band saw with the other. Both 20+ years ago and that photo still makes me cringe, uncomfortable, and grateful I still have all mine and you have that one too. Hope it heals and rehabs quick. Thank you for the reminder!

    Just rub some dirt on it and you will be ok in no time.



    Glad it did not take that digit completely off.

    Did you enjoy your last hospital stay so much that you had to go back?
