Two Week Vacation Was Well Enjoyed With The Exception Of Nail Gun Accident
I would like to apologize to everyone for missing my column last week. I was caught up in all of the post-Christmas family stuff and just forgot to write my article. Unlike my coworkers, I did not send my articles in early before we went on the Christmas vacation. I must confess that most every week I usually don’t write my article til late Monday morning and the deadline is Monday at lunch.
I would like to wish everyone a happy New Year and also hope that everyone had a special Christmas holiday. I have two young boys at my house so we had a really big Christmas, but I think everyone is ready for school and work to start back.
The Extension service gives us two weeks off of work around Christmas so I had plenty of free time, or so I thought. I had big plans of deer hunting some, working on a school project with my son and just helping around the house. Instead I found myself working on a shed for my mother-in-law, which I didn’t mind at all.
Last Tuesday while working on this shed I managed to shoot a 3.25 inch framing nail into my wrist with a framing nail gun. Being the tough country boy that I am, I pulled it out, went and got a tetanus shot and went back to work. Later in the day around 4 o’clock after the shock had worn off I found myself back at the clinic looking for some pain medicine. I am fine now but I definitely will not be shooting myself with a nail gun again.
