A slight accident. WARNING, IMAGE OF STITCHES
« on: December 08, 2017, 06:05:39 AM »
So, a ladder dropped me onto a stack of metal and I gashed my arm and hand:



That was Friday. I had a three hour op on Sunday including having a tendon put back together. So I'm out of action for some time.

I'm hanging around the MO's door pestering him to allow me to resume duties

I wonder if I can pass this off as a duelling scar?

Right, I got a local company to sort my hand for me. They're a pretty small operation, just one man and his dog in an A35 van. They had a bit of stuff left over from a previous job:
