Hot spiced apple cider.
Green Tea.
Hot Chocolate.
Yerba Mate.

Pretty well....grouping was about 4" at 18m yesterday.
My stab set supposedly ships on the 28th, so should have that sometime late next week?
Still haven't signed up for the 25m shoot, but probably will when I get back from the Redneck Riviera.

Spent the afternoon wrapping things... like axe handles. Makes for a better grip and shock absorption when you are killing zombies.



Working on a leather wrapped handle on one of my knives now...

Just woke up and i'm still fuming about not being able to get my license back yesterday. The $250 reinstatement fee takes up to 5 days to go through for some ridiculous reason. Ugh. I guess I can use the extra time to refinish the lug nuts like i've been meaning to or something. I'd better get it back friday when I go check the dmv, it's halloween party weekend!

Better have a Designated Driver or not drink at all!

Get a brand new tube and put it along the edge of the cut after it has stopped bleeding. Try not to get it down inside the cut. I went to urgent care a couple of years ago after cutting my finger and the doctor used Super Glue.

I cut my thumb with a piece of rusted sheet metal not long ago. Tried butterflying and bandaging it...then bled everywhere. Went to the doc for stitches (and a tetanus shot) and it was down to the tendon. Worth the money since I knew I'd pull it open again and again with the physical work I do.

Yeah, getting it inside the cut is what concerns me the most.

Wow, well this wasn't nearly bad enough to see tendon, but deep enough to bleed a while. I've just been keeping it clean, covered, and Neosporined and it's already improving quite a bit.
