    In the mid 80s I hit my left thumb nail with uncanny precision with a framing hammer, twice in less than a week. Second time was just a ‘splat’ As I typically drive a chair at a desk I had no experience with drilling to get relief.
    I went to work the next day and was talking with one of my friends that ran equipment for a living. He told me about using a small drill bit to get relief but offered no sympathy. He had previously drilled, countersunk, and riveted the web between his thumb and forefinger of his left hand. They had to take his machine apart to get his hand out. Fortunately I didn’t get to witness that first hand.

    Just north of my house. That afternoon I was in nearby Ernboland though.

    I took some images from the Euharlee Bridge and Mill back in the early 1980's:

    Not sure which tape that one is. My wife has a few. I still have most of a Kenwood home component system I bought in 1994 while stationed in Korea. Light night strike took out the tuner, but a friend gave me an old JVC tuner which sadly isn’t compatible with the EQ..... but yea. The dual cassette tape deck still works.

    As do the antique Polk Audio towers, although I need to replace the tweeters.... again.

    I look forward to replacing the foam surrounds on my JBLs every 10 years or so. Keeps them fresh! :lol3

    Wife sold my KLR yesterday for cash. Which enabled this early Father’s Day present:
