Hey, Posse!!! So… Missy March? She’s Away. And I’m Not. So you get MEEE! for a quickie post.
And quick it’s gonna be, as I have 3 projects nipping at my heels, with deadlines that are making my stomach twist. But I’ll get it done. I always do. Cannot figure out how I do it, though. Eh.
So! WINNERS! I’ll betcha anything you thought I’d forgotten about Frites! I. Did. Not. Here’s the thing: my hand is still healing, so grasping things is challenging (Chef Anne Burrell would have a heart attack, watching me use a chef’s knife with my index finger extended – but it’s the only way to balance it without having the base slide into that sweet spot at the inside of the thumb pad. Training mishap. Yoiks!
Try opening a doorknob with that. It’s finally closed and healing, blessed be (early photos are grossAF and NSFW because you could throw up from the ickiness). For the first 2 weeks I had to wait for my postman to show up if I needed a jar opened (it’s a long way across the street, trust me. He’s the easier choice). It’s getting better but still a bit hurty.
But I digress..
So.. I was worried about how to spritz Frites into a sample vial because it is taking 2 hands to spray anything these days… thinking about the ways I could Rube G the whole process….
Then it occurred to me: I could just take the damb top off and POUR it into the vial. Lordt. You’d think I would CHECK the mechanics!!
Which means I can post the winners!
gmail yer evilauntieanitaAT and remind me what you’ve won (because I’m old and forgetful. Or just old. Whichever)
Mayne! Wish I were on the Away, too! Alas, best I can do is Peoria. Gotta go buy dog food.
Yikes! Glad to read that you’re mending- hard to even drive with that kind of wound, especially if you have a stick.
I’m staying in, more hermit-like than before. Met a friend out and of course was all kissy-huggy-mwah-mwah b/c we hadn’t seen each other in forever only to be told 2 days later they tested pos for Covid. So I’ve been shoving tester q-tips up my nose. So far neg (and I am triple vaxxed) but I am keeping interpersonal to a minimum. Not their fault- I may have given it to them and not known..
Remember those good/bad old days when we only had to worry about unprotected sex?
Lordt, yes. I (really) was just thinking about that a few days ago, as one is wont to do, remembering the days when The Clap was the worst. Then came HIV/AIDS… and all bets were off.
Now? Heck, just air-kissing can kill ya!
And yes! on the hand. It’s motorcycle season – for everyone but me. This is persackly at throttle level. I can’t even turn my bike around to do a shakedown. Eh.
Bless that mail carrier going the extra mile to help out! What a nice guy. Hands…yah. Tough place to heal from. Glad you’re getting better!
He’s a champ! I adore him. But he’s not allowed to stop and chat anymore because… they track those folks now – and one time he was in front of my house for THIRTY-NINE minutes!!! We were talking about the Corps…. and I guess time got away from us. But I am now the stuff of legend at our teeny PO.
That looks like it was/is pretty gnarly. I’m glad that it’s healing and less painful. And, um, don’t do anything like that again. OK? 🙂
LOL! No worries! This sucker hurt so bad that I am now extraEXTRA careful.
Ouch! Glad it’s getting better.
it is, thanks! xoxoxo
So difficult to get hands to heal. Every activity needs hands. Washing, self, laundry, dishes, housework. Frustrating as!
Hope it heals quickly & cleanly
Inorite? and it’s at the perfect sweet spot where you grab stuff. So.. doors, pens, knives… all required more thought than my poor old head could handle.
Hope your hand continues to heal up quickly and well. My step-dad is dealing with a very slow-healing wound on his arm that started with yard work. A sliver of bamboo was the culprit. Had to go to a wound specialist and get the nuclear strength antibiotics. Yikes. Prayers for you both!
YOW! I’m wishing for his speedy healing! I got ahead of this by asking the DVM to ‘lend’ me some amoxy, which he did. A week’s course kept infection at bay and, tbh, the damb thing hurt so bad that I couldn’t use it for much, anyway. Betadine and Neosporin took care of the rest.
The Hand! Owwww! Hope it heals fast.
Hand wounds take so long to heal, and we need to use our hands! No doubt painful because we can’t not use our hands. Wishing you complete healing soon.
Thanks, honey! Now it’s just the internals, the nerves he no doubt tore apart with that little stunt. No infection, just… healing-hurt.
Yow!! Hope that gets better soon, looks oainful.
thanks! It is on the mend, thankfully!
