    Not only did Joe have help from his son but his wife climbed up into the engine bay and helped him tighten down the intake bolts and what not so it was truly a family affair fixing the truck this time.
    And it’s alive….joe

    This is what happens when your little finger gets in a fight with a sawzall with a wood cutting blade in it and loses. Surprisingly enough it doesn’t hurt as bad as it looks. But I definitely was dancing around on my tippy toes when I washed it out. : Yes, it did look like hamburger meat under the flap of skin, who needs finger prints anyway. No I didn’t go to the hospital or urgent care to get stitches. I would’ve use electrical tape, but there was none around so it was gauze and surgical tape….joe

    Super glue works great at sealing up the edges of a cut, not sure if the AMA approves of it or not but it works!

    Super glue was used extensively by battlefield medics in Vietnam Nam to "suture" wounds and to staunch bleeding. It was credited with saving many lives!

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    And it burns like hell too, ask me how I know Yes I have done it before but never on a cut this deep, it went about a 1/2 inch under my finger tip and the cut is about an inch or so long. I know it would burn baddddddd..joe

    If it would’ve been any other cut, I would’ve just wrapped black tape around it. Problem was there was no electrical tape. As far as looking for sympathy or pity, lol never. I just look at it as though I’m just adding to my collection of scars

    Happy Thanksgiving to you also. Mine was going to be spent loading a trailer, it looks like that’s on hold at least for myself. Thank God, Renee’s daughter is going to help.

    And three days later and after I was turned away from an urgent care facility that night because they were closing in 15 minutes.
    The only good thing is, it doesn’t hurt unless I accidentally hit it on something…..joe

    HooBoy! Looks like it should be hurting a bunch! I hope you can get some real medical attention for that.

    Nope, but I am an expert on cuts, scrapes and scars. Just using Neosporin and keeping it cleaned and bandage. Too late for stitches or anything else now. If it gets bad then I’ll go see a doctor
    Oddly it doesn’t hurt unless it gets hit….joe

    Since I grew up on a farm with a few cows our favorite was Bag Balm. Always a container of it here and used on us as well as the cows. 8-)
