   Your tale reminds me of the time I stopped at our local Vet's office and he was cussing a blue streak and scrubbing all the walls. Seems the previous patient was a monkey with diarrhea. whiteflag_smiley smiley_horserider headscratch running-doggy steve_smiley

My dad always carried a transistor radio in his shirt pocket.  He wrapped a couple of rubber bands around it to keep it from sliding out when he'd bend over.

Thanks for the chuckle this morning.

Nebraska at least you got yours back. I went to marina to take boat to the lake property. Always put my phone inside boat before I did anything. This time I was in a hurry to meet someone out there. Started untying boat splosh, there goes my new ( 2 month old ) sonim xp8 phone 50' down to the bottom. They are waterproof for 30 minutes. But for some reason I couldn't find a diver hanging around the marina that day to retrieve it lol. Costly mistakes $700 to replace.

Your phone story reminded me of a couple summers ago, I was adding oil to the hydraulic reservoir on my old combine. Bent over pouring oil up on the platform when my phone took a dive out of my pocket.  Right on the ground and broke the screen in 2 places.  Worked for a while before wiping out my contact list.

Monkey with diarrhea,  oh heaven help me, :o I have three I loosely care for in the practice (along with much deference to a well experienced veterinarian  around Kansas City).  They are a very quick, athletic beyond belief, two year old, un potty trained toddler who will never grow up. Buyer beware....

My turn.  Splitting firewood yesterday had one last piece  biger than the rest.  Rather than tilt the splitter i lifted it up well almost just before i got it on the splitter my hand slipped.  Landed on my big toe.  Now my foot that has the heel that is getting better has a black  big toe. No pic I cant match magicman with gore.

Oh ouch, I hope that toe heals without residual damage....Nothing like lifetime reminders of the sins of your youth.

It turns out my Samsung phone has a pretty good waterproof rating.  I found that out after I fished it out of my pond.  I was taking my goats out to a fenced area for them to graze for the day.  I noticed something splash into the pond and figured it was a frog jumping in.  Later I couldnít find my phone so I called it, but I never heard it.  I started retracing my steps and thought, ďI wonder if that splash was my phone.Ē  Sure enough, I found my phone submerged right under the surface.  It had been in there maybe 10 minutes.  Itís working as if no harm had come to it.  Still, Iíve got a fan blowing on it.  My wife looked it up and itís supposed to be water resistant for 30 minutes.

Caution, the following post contains photos rated at about 6 on the Magicman grossness scale(tm). ;D

Te dumb thing I did toady was not burning my finger as I has done last week while cooking breakfast last week.



 

 Nope, not that. Nor was it that I was working with the newly exposed fresh skin uncovered.


 

Nope not that either. Neither of these were created through my lack of thinking or dumbness (well maybe just a tad). The dumb thing I did today was managing, while pruning just one single pine branch that was in my way, with a pruning saw to land said saw in the middle of all that new very tender skin.


 

 Stung just a little. Now I have a scab in the middle of a healing blister.
 I do note that this thread is on it's 15th page. SO I am not alone, just sayin'  ;D :D

At this point, you might ensure that it's sterile, by rinsing it really well with alcohol!  ;D
