    New scar on knee. Had just taken off my chaps and decided to make one more cut. I was tired by that point. Mistake!!!

    Think of it as a valuable lesson learned, ole chap!

    I can't wear chaps climbing, but I do keep kevlar n carbon fiber n stuff over my shins, knees n thighs, just in case.

    That's why it takes half an hour to put my boots n stuff on!

    That'll be a 25 dollar surcharge billed to you in addition to any actual work done today Mr Jones.

    Wanna retire?

    Keep raisin your rates till the phone stops ringin!

    Kinda pricey chainsaw protection though!

    But gettin stitched these days costs way over 1500 bucks!

    I got 4 chainsaw cuts, two were nasty, never went to a doc or got stitches,
    kept it clean and wrapped in gauze and duct tape,
    the scars are less visible than if I went to a doc,
    also my last tetanus shot was in 1979.
