I accidentally found LJ’s in 2009, but I survived.

I had a couple. But then I started wearing these Depends and it’s no big deal now.

I’ve had my share of slivers, but lost count of how many.

Some miner cuts, & abrasions. Also lost count of them.

Stepped on a loose board in the lumber yard and bruised my shin was the only issue in 2009.

Fortunately only had a couple kick backs and several slivers the size of 2×4’s—very thankful for that.

Splinters, small cuts, nothing I can remember specifically, except for the “slow motion” kickback I had cutting a piece of Homasote on the table saw. That was memorable, just for the weirdness.

Oh, and there’s the big gash on my head, right in the part in my hair, where I stepped up onto a step stool without looking and battering-rammed my head into the corner of a blast gate. People at work were saying insightful things like, “Did you know you’ve got a big gash on your head?”

Me! Me! I had an accident, actually, one small one, and then a BIG one. First one was woodworking related, the second one wasn’t.

Stay safe everyone!

Funny Charlie you don’t look that old but I understand it can happen to younger people too, don’t forget to change it once in a while.

Nothing but an easily removed splinter just last week.

I have to go back to when I built my headboard about 9 years ago when I nicked my thumb on the topside of a router.

Gman, did you have to start this? I cut the tips of my index and ring fingers off of my left hand in Sept. Cutting a piece of molding and it split just as I got to the end of the cut. Lost both finger tips below the fingernail. Now laying around with broken ankle after slipping on ice on the handicap ramp here at the house. I hope 2010 is a much better year.
