Among the many "irritating things" I do to people - one is requesting they remove their jewelry before a ride. Most of the guys refuse. The gals get it. Watching your love token or bling get cut off with a worn out set of clippers (or slicing into you swollen appendage) certainly can’t be as bad as relinquishing The Bond for a few hours. Also, Grand Ma's pearl earring is very hard to find on the trail.


Photo flinched from PP's blog. I have a similar lawn mowing incident foot shot. Glad I'm not in to toe rings

Dude that Sucks - the Wrist Jack? yikes! how's the collar bone?
Collar bone is a non-issue compared to the wrist. Got to see an X-ray of the repaired clavicle at last weeks appt. 9 screws and a metal plate are holding all the pieces together.:thumbsup:

I brought my bike into the living room this weekend. I'm really starting to jones...This is the longest I've gone without a ride since the mid nineties.

MUM, sorry to wristJACK the thread. You are right about the jewelry thing. I hadn't thought of that.

That's freaking something.
The only thing that would make that acceptable is if it shot lasers.
Stay positive.

I sitting here looking at that wristjack and wondering how many times I'd smack myself in the face trying to scratch! :eek:

Seriously, that looks very bad. Hope you heal well.

And, MUM is right (like who don't know dat?) on removing the trinkets!

A "Livestrong' rubber wristband is the only such item I wear so, I don't have to remember to remove anything! :thumbsup:

Ouch... that looks painful!
I've never seen anything like the wrist jack. I guess it's for stretching the wrist back to length. Sounds like a painful process. I've never worn jewelry, never could get use to it. Makes me glad I don't bother.

Being married saved Donnie Register's life!
He survived a brutal robbery, thanks to his gold wedding band!

"I knew being married was a good thing, I just didn't know it was that good,"
Donnie jokingly tells INSIDE EDITION.

Donnie had just opened his store,
when two men came in and asked to see a coin collection.
Suddenly, one guy pulled a gun and demanded money.
Donnie says, recounting the incident, the other man,
reached over the counter with his pistol.
At that point, Donnie raised his hand to protect his face.
"He shot me, and my wedding band caught most of the impact and deflected the bullet."
Donnie's wedding ring stopped the bullet from going straight into his head!
There is now a dent on the chunky gold band from the bullet's impact.
Fragments from the bullet hit Donnie in the neck and hand.
The two men got away with $6,000 in cash and are still at large.
Darlene, who has been married to Donnie for 38 years,
says there's a lesson to be learned. "It's a good idea to wear that ring."

Whoa! I broke my hand on Pilot two weeks ago, and now have a small plate with 5 screws on the bone. This thread is definitely making me realize how much worse things could be!

I have a friend who is missing the ring finger on his right hand due to a bullet hitting his wedding band and ripping it off! :eek:

I'd say Donnie was dang lucky!

Five tiny screws? Wimp...

What color are your's and Mike R's bikes?

(Took me a long time to locate something special from the last deceased pooter. Thank goodness for Bordershy Pooter Repair Services and them little stick-in thingies.)

Healing (((hugs))) to you too!

speaking of safety...

this article is for you Mum :D

<SCRIPT src="http://www.wsmv.com/js/13260191/script.js" type=***************></SCRIPT><LINK href="http://www.wsmv.com/css/13260803/style.css" type=text/css rel=stylesheet><!--startindex-->A Colorado woman stranded for almost three days in the Alps
was flown to safety by rescuers after she caught the attention of loggers
by using her sports bra.

Jessica Bruinsma, 24, of Colorado Springs,
had fallen and was trapped on a ledge in Germany
near the border with Austria on June 16.
Police in Berchtesgaden, Germany, said Bruinsma,
who was too injured to walk, attached her sports bra to a cable
used to haul timber off the mountains.
The cable was only within reach because it was broken, police said.
When the moving cable was repaired Thursday,
it took the sports bra down the mountain,
where the loggers saw it and notified rescuers.
A team in a helicopter followed the cable line up the mountain,
spotted Bruinsma, and flew her to safety.
"We're going to have a party for her every June 19 (the date she was rescued)
and give her some new bras," her sister, Elana Bruinsma,
told The Rocky Mountain News. She said her sister remains in a German hospital,
having suffered four broken ribs,
a punctured lung and nerve damage to her legs in the fall.

Lets all be safe out there :D
