Picture of the Day
yesterday | today tomorrow

January 13, 2004


I was down in the basement,
folding up the table saw legs,
when Arne came down and
mentioned in a very under-
stated way that he had just
shot a 2-inch finishing nail
thru the meat of his thumb.

"Mind if I take a picture?"

(Not the first time a friend's injury
became fodder for photography

Then came the pulling, the nail
coated with alcohol and iodine.
I handed him the pliers. First
attempt didn't work, but slow
and steady pressure the second
time got it out. See for yourself.

No drama. OK, back to work.
