I was trying to trim my hedge with my lawn mower a few days ago. The lawn mower slipped and I had both my hands cut off. Nice clean cuts, right at the wrist. I'm learning to type now by holding a pencil in my mouth. It really is quite challenging.

I didn't want to start a whole new thread concerning my severed hands, so I picked one at random.

I hope I didn't interrupt anything important.

Carry on.

Here's one of my hands. (the other one is in the refrigerator)

As you can see, the damage isn't too bad and I can probably have it reattached. The other one is a little more tore up, but not so bad as it couldn't be used.

I'm going to keep them both on ice until I can come up with a couple hundred dollars. That's how much Doc Jeeter wants for the operation.

Until then.... the pencil will have to do.

i must applaud you -- whoops! -- congratulate you, on your pencil-in-the-mouth typing technique. well done, stumpy! well done...

especially nice job capitalizing the proper letters. i myself am in possession of two functioning hands (both attached i might add), yet my capitalization skills are woefully lacking.

We have a thing this weekend with Marycat's return to the area. But, we don't have any set fetes planned right now. I think there's a BBQ at the Sealpoets' place this summer.

Eek Virgo gone wild all right.

Okay, the fish 'n chips place near Faneuil Hall is called (is this right?) Kitty O'Shea's?

Is that acceptable to all? If so, which day is better? Friday will be (per the Weather Channel) rain-free but prolly kinda cloudy. Saturday is less likely to be rain-free. Dunno if that makes a difference to anyone but just in case it does, I'm throwin' it out there.

Anything else to be concerned with?
