Retired and loving it. If I'd have known about retirement befor I started my 40 year career with the government of Manitoba I'd have retired first. :)

I made another trip to the ER yesterday. While working on a flag for the Queen's lighthouse I was using a Vicegrip. The thing slipped and either hit my thumb or caught it between the handle. One mark was on the nail and the other in the quick. I think i have a new pain to compare when the doc's ask me compared to your worset pain how does this conmpare. I soaked the thumb in ice water which gave temporary relief but when out with the Queen the heat made the pain unbearable. I asked her to take me to the ER where they used a rather crude meathod to release the preasure. A paper clip heated over a lighter to pierce the thumbnail and blood came rushing out. The ER fdoctor examined the humb and said I was kucky I didn't burst a vien leading to the thumb. I still have to give the thumb an occasional squeeze to stop the blood buildup under it. I guess the rat poison is working.
I've promised the Queen no projects today. :)
I'll have my family doctor check it out tomorrow when I visit him again.
