Detour

"So, Mr Black is removing garage doors a part of your daily work routine?" the doctor asks.



"No sir, I'm a plumber" the patient replies.



Five stitches later, hubby was back home finishing up the task at hand.



He is okay, but it could have been MUCH worse than it actually was. He was taking down the garage door and forgot to release the tension springs. The door snapped and came back on him cutting about an inch strip less than a half inch from his right eye.



The addition to the house is coming along rather quickly. The floor in the garage is almost complete making it level with the rest of the house. Baby sister just might have a completed bedroom before she makes her much anticipated arrival! :)
