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
