If I had a hammer....

This is what happens when my father hands me a hammer. Not only did I manage to give myself this fabulously painful blood-blister, but I somehow peeled the skin off the back of my thumb, as well. Talk about talent!

However, we did manage to get half of the beds done for my raised bed garden.

OWWWIEEEEEE!!!!! That looks like it hurts!!!! A lot!!!!!!! I hope it heals quickly and doesn't leave any scars.

*sniffle, sniffle, whine* It DOES hurt, and I am never picking up another hammer in all my life. I do much better with power tools.
*evil laugh*

I almost hope there will be a scar, because then no one will think I am a wimp! *wink*

OUCH! Been there...done that.

I put my last set of raised beds together with a drill and screws--took longer, but less trauma to those valuable digits!

LOL Ok. Good point. So, mild scarring wished, since it IS on your hands, after all, and ANY proof that we women are good with our hands as the guys are is great. Ok. So, Non-itchy mild scarring wished. *wink*
