I was putting up a fence in my backyard today, in the rain, in the mud, in the cold, in Oregon. They should change the State Flower here to "mud." I cut my left index finger open on a bracket -- really sliced it up pretty good. At the end of the day, with the toddler put to bed, I happily picked up my bass, and realized that I can't play with my screwed up finger. On a positive note, this is my first foray into using a nail gun, and they ROCK. It would have taken me 3-4 days to do what I did in a few hours. Tomorrow, it's back out into the mud and rain, but this time, I'm going to be more careful, because not being able to play stinks BIG TIME.
