Old Farmhouse Hazard

My daughter took this with her cell phone while waiting in the ER with me yesterday. "HOW did you DO that?" every medical person asked me when they saw it. They were all pretty impressed. I was vigorously scrubbing cupboards (very old wood cupboards) and pierced my thumb with a splinter. Big splinters are a hazard of old farmhouses. Nasty, eh?


  1. ew ew ew! I am sorry. Glad someone was home to drive you!

  2. Ouch! I hope you are okay by now.

  3. Thanks for the sympathy. I'm keeping it clean, so no cleaning or gardening, and no spinning, knitting or quilting for a couple of days. Now THAT is really painful!
