The joys of yard work
In my last post I mentioned I was not the great outdoorsman and today I proved it. We were dragging pieces of a fallen tree to our wood pile when my foot was caught in a vine and down I went, the tree limb skewering my arm. This is what it looked like after I cleaned it up and added an antibacterial ointment. I finished the job before cleaning it so there was blood on the clothes. They were treated with an anti-stain liquid and thrown in the wash. It's memorable to me as being my first yardwork wound after retirement.
