As you can see from the picture its not a serious wound... this time. If you look just below the blood gushing from my finger (I'm melodramatic, sue me) you can just about see the scar from a real accident I had a couple of decades ago. As I recall I was trimming a model down to size, the blade slipped and before I realised what I had done the knife was embedded in the bone of my finger. To say that it hurt a lot would be an understatement. Worse still the cut was so deep I must have severed some nerves which resulted in a permanent loss of feeling in the tip of my index finger. Needless to say the moral of the story is be careful when handling knives... a lesson I clearly haven't learnt myself!
Anyway, on to other matters.
My posting schedule will probably drop off a bit next week as I have a very busy few days planned. I'm actually on holiday although we aren't planning on going away. I've got a couple of days earmarked for gaming though. The rejects are gathering this Saturday for a final run through of our Broadside Demo Game and then the following weekend is the show itself. Of course taking two days out of the half-term holidays to play games has left me in debt to Mrs BigLee (I have expended my supply of Brownie Points, and then some!) so I'll have to make it up to her and the kids. This means I'll probably have to endure several shopping trips and a few days on the beach. If I'm lucky I may get to a museum or two as well , but that might be pushing my luck!
The end result of all this frenetic activity will be less time either at my painting desk or at my computer blogging. I've scheduled a couple of posts for next week so BLMA won't go completely quiet. Hopefully the plus side will be that I end up with shed-loads of photo's to share with you the following week.
