Oh, then there was the time I slid down a side of paneling and got my foot caught under a chain-link fence. I tried to pull my foot back and those barbs just dug right in! I don't know how I got out of that, I think I passed out.

And the time my uncle dropped a sodering iron on me... yep!!!

I amputated the tips of my index, middle, and ring fingers...left hand. This happened right before I was headed to Nashville Tennessee...So I had to cancel out. On the bright side it opened the door for Garth Brooks who would have other wise never been a star. My piano playing days were pretty much ended too!

I have tons! haha

My sister was holding my feet and swinging me around in a circle. She dropped me and I fell into a curtain rod that was laying on the ground. The old style curtains had metal hooks that were rather sharp, and it cut my tounge. My mother took me in to the doctors and told them that I needed my tounge stitched. The nurse said they didnt do that but upon inspection they did.

I have more but will wait tell I have more time.

My husband has enough stories to fill pages! Maybe he will share some of them when he finishes school. Everything from the time he rode his bike downhill and didn't notice he was about to ride under a semi-truck's trailer until it was too late--riding face first into the side of it as his bike went under, to the time he (as an adult) broke a cast off of his arm so he could keep working. How he has lived to age 47, I'll never know! He and I are opposite--he has broken lots of bones but has never had surgery for anything; I have had a few surgeries but have never broken any bones (I think I cracked a toe a month or so ago, but I don't know for sure).

I guess I'm lucky--I just walked into a telephone pole as I read while walking (I was with my mom and sister so was just vaguely following their shapes)!
