A Whole New Meaning to the word, “Thumb Drive”


We had an interesting Monday.  Honey Do had time off for Martin Luther King Day and spent the day working on our living room.  If you recall, we ripped out our fireplace wall, built that wall back, and we have painted the beams and installed new lighting on the old fireplace wall.  The current project is building and installing the bookshelves and cabinets that will surround our new fireplace.

Honey Do had completed most of the cabinet components over the 3-day weekend when I heard him asking me to come and help. I, naturally assumed, he wanted my help to carry in a cabinet from the garage.  He was so calm.  Boy, was I wrong!   He had shot a nail straight through his thumb with the nail gun!

Fortunately, he was able to get a doctor’s appointment that day for an x-ray and tetanus shot.  He did not shoot the nail through the bone, only a possible grazing.  His thumb is healing nicely and no signs of a bone infection at the present.   Thank the Lord!

Renovation, truly, can require a person’s blood, sweat, and tears, even all in one day.
