Anything they own looks like this when one goes to work on it.  Preventive maintenance or just general care are terms they can't even imagine.

 

I see this all the time.  I usually spend the first 30 minutes or so cleaning the equipment up.  Then the next time I see it, it's in the same shape as before. :wallbanging:

Arthritis attack is still here at 3 days, and today my right hand has swelling.  Gonna do the feeding, then go run some errands, giving my hand an easy day.

It was 50F when I went to bed last night, now it's 21 with 20 to 28mph winds with a little snow on the ground.  Gonna be quite cool feeding the heifers!

  Hands still hurting enough I have to use left hand to drink coffee.  Never had pain in hands last this long this bad.

It was -38 C. when I went out to chore at 8:30 a.m. today. Even the Tibetan Mastiffs wanted to come in again when we got back from the yard! At least the sun is out now, so it'll warm up a bit.

Now that is COLD Lorna!  That's why I said "quite cool" in my post, as I know many have brutal cold going on.

  I've been out wiring barn doors tight to prevent wind getting hold of them, and tinkered in the shop a few minutes.

Dan, my dad was having the same issue with him left hand, so bad he couldn't sleep, pharmacist gave him a pill ( over the counter stuff, can't think of the name) and told him to use a bit more salt in his diet, seemed to work, as he is back playing his guitars again and not whining about his hand, if his mom was still around... She would be giving him something to whine about, LOL she was one tough cookie!!

I know how both you guys feel though, my woodsplitter recoul got my right hand a month ago, and my finger has still not recovered.. I hurt something there pretty good...

Keith, those recoils can put a hurtin on ya!  I likely eat more salt than I should.  Ibuprofin always helped a lot when Auther came visiting, but I can't take that anymore due to being on thinners.  No form of anti-inflammatory for me now.  As to guitars, if I were still attempting to play them, you'd ALL be whining!  I tried as a teen, but my big fingers kept killing strings.

My mom would tell you to wrap a towel soak in apple cider vinegar around the area, it supposedly helps take away the pain and swelling. I think it's just one of her back woods Kentucky wife's tale  :poke:  :poke: :D  :D

Tried a heating pad a couple days ago.  Felt good, but didn't really help.  Today my hand is slightly better, so I'm looking forward to it easing off.  Going to town later today to drop papers off at my CPA. 8F this morning.

How long before you get to soak in the hot tub? That may help some!

I think Kenny has the right idea, sounds like "stress related pain" to me, lol. That well deserved holiday could be the perfect prescription, definitely open to renewal.   :rocker2:
