Default Got to go to the E.R. last night

I was carrying a mattress through my garage last night and bumped against a Scottish Claymore (a big a$$ sword) which then pulled out of its mount and fell towards my head. So, I blocked it with my arm... 11 stitches and a tetnus shot later I was back at my house pouring a pint. Felt a bit foolish but still had fun explaining to the nurses and doc how I was sliced with a sword. Made it fun for them at least. Since it was on Thanksgiving they saw a lot of lacerations from bean cans, carving knives, etc... But, I was the only sword wound! Who fricken does that? This guy...

Man, glad you didn't get hit in the head.

I've got a large sword hanging over my workbench on two nails. Now you've got me thinking....

It's like the legend of the Sword of Damocles.

Yeah, you should add a third nail.

Glad the injury wasn't more serious, cracked1.
Did you get any turkey?

That's going to be a bad a$$ story in time.

Hope all is well,

Cheers and glad you're ok,

A Claymore will MESS you UP. My friend did get cracked in the head. I won't hang any of my swords (real, sharp) unless they are over 8ft up, in studs, with those padded curved hangers. They are heavy duty and the sword sets down into them making it very sturdy.

Cheaper then the ER bill

Whew! Thank the brewing gods for that one!

I have a rapier hanging, but I left it in the case as a precaution. Now you got me wanting to check the nails holding it up!
