Ow! Stop that!
The pain lasted two days and then there was no pain...and that was not good!

It was between second and third degree nerve damage-- third degree is a severed nerve.

This one was close to severed so the nerve has to tunnel down the sheath to repair itself. It has not reached all the way to my foot and may never make it there.

The nerve to the end of my left thumb got severed in the 80s. It's not been a problem. But if I knock the bit just below the scar where the severance occurred, it feels like it happened to the end of my thumb. It's really weird 🤪

I wish the sciatic nerve could heal like that! It is the longest nerve in the body and nerves regrow at a quarter of an inch a month. The growth slows the further it goes down the nerve.

Since my injury is just out of the spinal column, it has to go down the back of the leg, through the knee and then down the front to the toes
It is a very long way to go

Fence is Freed!
Ready to roll back on TreeClearing day.
In pretty good shape for 20yo wire fencing.
Used the string trimmer to clear the couple inches of dirt/grass from the bottom.


This might be Little Sister's first egg!
She's been getting along pretty well, getting redder, and not running from Willie.
So I was hoping it would be soon, she's 20wks old.
Haven't opened it up yet, but a bit too big for a fart egg.
She's been too skittish to examine at roost time,
will have to go out well after dead dark to check her nethers.
