    Broke my finger

    So I broke my middle finger and now have to have surgery on Thursday. I was drilling a hole in an enclosure and the drill bit caught, the drill twisted and my finger caught in the side handle. Crap luck. Spiral break in three places. Even trying to work safe accidents still happen

    OUCH....I feel your pain. I was drilling once and was applying to much force on the bit. Well it broke and the broken bit in the drill went into my opposite holding hand. I will not make that mistake again. Hope all ends up well for you. Ya just never know what's going to happen day to day.

    Yeah and the sad thing is I've already lost part of a finger on the same hand. I told the doctor he had to fix it I already have trouble counting to ten

    Sad to hear that. That's one thing I told a guy I trained out of school was you can do everything right and still end up hurt or worse. Hope everything goes well with the surgery!

    Wonderful! I have a vacation buddy. Best of luck with the surgery. Hopefully you'll be off less time than I will. Not working is making me nuts.

    So what have you been doing? Any good movies on Netflix? I have a list of movies from redbox that I want to see.

    Watching tons of movies and game shows, and the internet. I've got AT&T Uverse with a bunch of movie channels. Started therapy and go 3 times a week. If I go out, I'm good for maybe 2 hours before it gets really annoying. Went to a museum last week with my stepdaughter. Went in the garage the other day to check on my tools LOL I talk to the guys at work every few days on the Nextell to keep up with whats going on.

    If you guys have all that time, you should start watching the tv show Jericho. I got sucked in and had to watch it to the end as fast as possible. Another one that got me was Deadliest Warrior.
