The healing hand

Do you know how a 3 1/4 inch nail feels on the knuckle when fired from six inches away with a Bostitch pneumatic nailer? That was last week Monday. I missed one day of work because of the bruising which prevented me from straightening or gripping with that finger (my left pointer). After that one day, the swelling was down enough to carefully put on my work gloves and try to use one hand as much as possible.

But that is mostly over--I could type pretty comfortably after 2/3 days of healing. The nail did make a direct hit puncture, but bounced off and hid from my wrath.

He's probably gloating somewhere with the nail that punctured my tire 2 days ago.

Editor's Note (as if the rest isn't): Lady In The Water movie review to come soon hopefully

I'd just like to say that I'm happy I made it successfully through a year at PP without nailing anything into myself. I'm sure it was only a matter of time, given my coordination skills.

Glad you're feeling better.

I hope you write that review soon. I saw the movie and liked it. Kristi kinda freaked out at one part and fell off her chair onto the ground. I think the people sitting near us were having more fun watching her than the movie! (but don't tell her I told you that:)
