Saturday started out great with 8 small projects all in work at the same time and everything was going better than expected until when scraping glue off the the back side of a cutting board glue up I ran the putty knife into the side of my finger. I knew it was close so I had moved my fingers so if the putty knife slipped it would not hit one of them, wrong! I am wearing a really nice bandage now. Continueing with a bandaged finger more progress, another glue up done. I reached to take a gulp of my cold coffee and felt something move in my month so leaped out the shop door to spit it out. Too late, I felt a really sharp pain just before the coffee left my mouth. It was a bee that must have been swimming back strocks in my cup just before I drank. Running into the the house and to a mirror with my tongue hanging out like an old dog I pulled the stinger out of my now swelling tongue. Dang that hurt! The wife made me take an antihistamine to help stop the swelling and because I knew they make me a bit fuzzy in the head I knew that all the power equipment was off limits until tomorrow. What to do… Ok, I have a truck load of salvaged logs to unload so I backed up to the log pile with my finger and and tongue both throbling and began to unload the wood. The biggest log was a real bear to get out of the truck but when it finally came out it landed on my left foot and just to let the whole neighborhood know that the log was out and on my foot I screamed and it did not sound very delightful. Now limping back to the house and with a painfully swollen tongue and a throbing finger I decided that I would just go onto LumberJocks and hide out until its safe!
