who works?

Homer and I love to tease each other about the condition of our hands. Sometimes people tell me my hands are soft. Because they are..


Homer's hands are rough and cracked. By mid-November they are cracked and bleeding. His Christmas and birthday presents always include some salve or ointment, a concoction with the shortest list of ingredients possible, meant to heal his poor hands up.

Evidence, my hands:


Nary a crack or snag. Not even a hang nail.
And now, here are Homer's:


Cuts, cracks, knicks, scars, calluses. Stains and spots.

He says the worst I get is a paper cut. Or a cramp hitting the shift key.

True that!

  2. I'll let you know how it goes. Another chair appeared tonight next to a dumpster as I was leaving the market. Yellow pleather, arm broken off, legs unglued. But all parts there, the padding is fine and some glue, clamps, paint and fabric all will be well!
