No condome

When you are self employed you work thru the pain, the flu, the aches and the cuts. I cut my finger and it was a throwing day at Pinecroft. A Band Aid won't stay on and I didn't have a finger condome in my wallet or my tool box. I usually have a half dozen finger condomes in my tool box for things like dried out split fingers and the odd cut. The ones from my sharp rib are particularly nasty. So the McGiver trick that Bobby Free can send into CM for his free subscription is to use "Crazy Glue". Crazy Glue seals the cut and allows you to keep throwing.

I once temporarily sealed a hole in the oil pan of my VW Rabbit with the foil from a cigarette package and some Crazy Glue. If you can't find em' handsome then find em' handy. WD40, Duct Tape and Crazy Glue are a good emergency package to carry in your car.

OUCH!! The pic scared me! Superglue/Crazyglue was used back in the war for headwounds and even during surgical procedures..but the FDA hasnt approved it basically it will cost too much money to test it. They have dermabond which it costly. I know bowlers which have used a product called liquid bandage you can buy it at your local drug store. Here is a link its only 3 bucks at Walmart. http://www.walmart.com/ip/New-Skin-Liquid-Bandage-First-Aid-Liquid-Antiseptic-1-oz/10316533 I hope you finger heals fast!!

Buon compleanno, Caro! Tanti auguri! Happy Birthday. It was very fun to see you, the little I did anyway, in Seattle.

Horrible! That is one thing I don't like about stainless steel ribs but there seems to be no alternative in some throwing situations.

I use gaffers tape when I can, and duct tape when I can't. However, I'm getting better at not cutting my fingers with the SS ribs.

I've been known to mix concrete with bare hands, so I may be an outlier :)
