So he wasn't feeling quite right in the head huh? I know a few folks like that.

Right now I am cursing myself and calling me every name but my own. I was going into the bathroom and took the corner too quickly. Have a very large tear in my fragile skin. I am a walking hazard.

Dreading giving the Boss the bad news.
The hot water heater went again. He's going to have to shell out money for a new one.

Shoot I was going to hit him up for a new dishwasher.

You and me both. How bad is it?

I'm thinking seriously about making my own protective arm and legs pads.
Not the kind that ball players wear. A little lighter with Velcro straps. Just cushy enough to take a bump without bruising myself over nothing.

I just made some pickled red onion; it's resting now. I'm on my way to dinner with friends.

I just checked and changed the dressing. I think I should have gone to the health clinic ER for steri strips. But it is past the golden hour. But I was able to get the skin back in place so it will heal to itself. You can't put sutures in me. My skin is so fragile that you can see right through the piece I tore off.

The wound is ugly looking. A big mark and blue black (childrenese) surrounding the wound. The piece of skin that I ripped off is at lest a half inch long and a quarter inch wide. I really did it up good this time. I did put some Bacitracin on it. I have to keep it covered. When I go to the bathroom I wipe myself with my left hand. And the wound is just above my wrist on my left hand. I can't take the chance of having that wound exposed to that area when I wipe myself. I apologize for the indelicacies of the description.

So if you join in fine, if you read along fine, if you put this thread on your ignore list, well that's fine, too

So tonight I'll be "doing" this.

I found this sucker under the eave of my chicken coop when I went to check on their water. I'm lucky I didn't bump the coop with the lawn mower earlier today It's quite active, but I'm hoping to deactivate it after it gets dark
Looks a bit like a wasps nest - is it?

Beats me. I couldn't tell you the difference between a wasp and a hornet. They were black and yellow striped like yellow jackets or ground bees.

Tasty
It made for some nice sandwiches with lettuce and mayo on soft white bread.
