    If you ever want to visit a handful of them, take a ride to Syracuse and we'll have a reunion, Gary. ;)

    Stripping wire with an electrician knife. I usually end up with a bunch of small slices on my thumb, but I rarely draw blood.

    I'm a carver and have nicked myself several times. Only once that needed stitches. That was a learning incident. About half of my T shirts have little nicks or cuts on the front of them from holding a project too close and a tip got the shirt. Lately I'm more careful and wear one of the cut proof gloves. The longer I carve the more respect I get for the blades. Maybe because I'm getting better at sharpening them. Carve safely guys.

    I got my thumb pretty good at lunch a while back when I was wiping off my knife before I cut a sandwich. I wasn't close to my first aid kit, so I made a field-expedient bandage with a napkin and some clear wrap. It worked so well, that I might get a roll of Saran Wrap to keep in the truck.
