Thanks for all the well wishes, they are appreciated! A jig I built years ago for making panels on my table saw was worn and failed so my hand went down on the blade. No tendon, ligament or bone damage. Took off a bunch of hide and cut deep in the muscle. It was deep enough that I could see my thumb bone. This was the first and only accident I've ever had at work out of 25 yrs. I am incredibly lucky . I'll be back on the bikes in a month or so. Ya'll have no excuse not to ride so get out there then tell me some stories while I'm waiting!


And Spikes...shit dude... that foot?!?

I've lived in various parts of Murfreesboro for the past 16 years and like it. I stay away from shopping areas on the weekends where traffic is worse. Lived on the newer developing north side of town ( Siegel high school) for the past 8 moths and like it best for peace and quiet.
