WOW Mike!!!! That must have really rung your bell. Here is one of the many joys of being a sheet metal worker. Just happened this morning. Six stitches and a tetanus booster for good measure. I'll be back on the job in the morning. Be careful out there gang.

Nice one Trav! That sheet metal is like working with razor blades! Keep it clean my friend!

This happened to me yesterday. I was cleaning out my garage. I am trying to convert my garage into a workspace/ shop/ studio where I can work. I was moving a shelf without cleaning it off first. Apparently I had stored some saws on top of the shelf and when I moved it all the saws fell on me. I was lucky. No stitches and no shots required.

Geez Louise - Be careful, you guys!

Every time I have to take anything off the shelf in our hall closet I duck & cover because I know there's a hammer up there somewhere. This is a good reminder to go move it!

Happy healing to all.

Here's another left wrist injury.

Today ebtiki is having a surgery to place a metal strip in his left wrist after a fall. I had that done a few years ago while doing a painting for Tiki Oasis. He is in the midst of building his tiki room. What is it with projects?

We need to cheer him on. He still has his right hand working. Go go go Eric.

Best Wishes for a speedy recovery, Wendy

Wendy, I think you are collecting surgical scars with the same passion that you collect tikis!

What good are friends if you can't count on them to laugh at you during life's embarrassing moments? Celebrated my first anniversary this past weekend with a jacuzzi suite in San Diego. At 56, my equipment all still works, but sometime you just want to kick in the turbo I picked up a packet of "Sexual Enhancement" herbal supplement at 7-11. It had Horny Goat Weed & a handful of other herbs and it was all natural, what harm could it do? So I took it Saturday night and it did keep me up all night, but not in a good way. About an hour later I started shaking like a dog passing a peach pit, nausea and diarrhea followed and I slept for a total of about 2 hours that night. No more Horny Goat Week for me

That's weird - I don't think I did that?
Hmmm... also weird that it says edited by maddogmike instead of MadDogMike. Is something freaky going on?

OMG...that is hysterical MDM. I am wondering if you have any after affects like a desire to jump up on tops of cars, or eat tin cans?

I have no pictures but in my golden years I am slowly turning into a zombie. My skin is like tissue paper. I went to the bathroom and then went to wash my hands...I turn the water on and look down and blood is dripping off my hand...somehow I had pulled a piece of skin off. The other day I was at a drive through and went to hand the girl my money and there was blood dripping all off my hand...so frikken embarrassing...ZOMBIE!!!

VampiressRN so sorry you are falling apart like a zombie.

I did this trying to conserve water. I was throwing a bucket of used water to a bush and hit a newly pruned limb. Hey guys can I join your club?


We need to be more careful. Wendy
