Poor Kim

Kim had an accident in his workshop day before yesterday. The heavy lid of a large smoker he's building fell on his head while he was welding. It knocked him out, pinned his arm, and he came to on the concrete floor with the welder still running. When he finally got his arm free, he called the house on his cell phone. Fortunately, a friend was here helping me hang pictures, since I can barely walk, and don't drive. He ran out and found Kim all bloody, cleaned him up a little, and got him to the E.R. where they put 7 staples in his head.

Fortunately, he didn't have a concussion. I always told him he had a hard head.

The risks we take for pleasure are amazing. The fact that we somehow survive through them is even more astounding.

I am so gladd he's ok, with just a bump on his head and a new scar to brag about (in the future of course).

And Kim, I gotta see that smoker when it's done. I applaud your efforts.

Yikes! Kim, I'm sure you had one nasty headache after that, but you sure were lucky!

Glad you weren't hurt worse! It sounds like you will need to smoke up some mean meals in that smoker to teach it who is the real boss!!!lol

I'm surprised you didn't say:
