No one offered anything for pain yet, and I finally said, "If you want to at least give me some Motrin that'd be great, because this really hurts!" "Oh, I'm so sorry!! You poor thing!!" I just replied, "You know, I've given natural childbirth twice, so I can probably handle just about anything"! Haha
    Speaking of child birth... I remember when I went in to have my son, they put me in a room and forgot about me! By the time husband finally decided to look for someone they were like... Oh look... you are 8 cms... Let's go do this thing... NO DRUGS! I didn't make a sound... No screaming, no crying... Nothing like on TV... Men are babies aren't they?

    You know, what's funny about my husband, is that he can take a lot of pain from an injury, but if he comes down with a cold, you never saw such a sulky man!! Husbands are wonderful, though, aren't they? Mine's a keeper :)

    Ladytrails, please don't "should" yourself. I know how you feel - I flunked home-ec 2 years in a row. But I am a fair cook, can't sew a stright line to save my life, and to heck with what people think we "should" do. I was top of my class in agriculture in 3 classes. So we just do what we like or are good at. As far as house keeping? I've never seen a gravestone that read "She was a wonderful housekeeper" or "Her home was imaculate". I've never heard that at a wake or funeral luncheon, either. You're a good person. That is what says it all. Be kind to yourself.

    Farmpony, it sounds like your finger is non-displaced fracture, but with the nuckle not wanting to bend, it could have a chip at the base of the bone. Buddy tape it, and try not to move it. If the chip should cut a blood vessel, you might have a huge bruise in the finger for quite a while.
    The only time they will do surgery on a finger, is if the bone is displaced and won't stay in place, after they manipulate it. Then they'll pin it. Try not to use it too much, with the buddy tape. Put a splint on it, if you're able. At least for a couple of days, depending on how long this happened. It will take 6 weeks for the bone to be to full strength again. Then purposely bend it a lot, making a fist often, so you get range of motion back. It's funny how those hurt almost more than a leg bone break. (I'm an x-ray tech, btw, and I've been in on many surgeries, and take "pictures" of finger fracture progress. This is what I've observed and learned, if you don't want to go to the orthopedic surgeon or family doctor.)

    You are SO not kidding. A couple years ago I ripped my finger nail off but I kept pushing it back against the skin to try to get it to reattache itself. After about a year of it healing and ripping and healing... I finally went in and had it removed. (the entire fingernail all the way to the nail bed) I couldn't take it anymore! It did finally grow back and nearly perfectly... That was SO painful to deal with! And this stupid finger... opening a dang soda cap hurts! Luckily it's my left hand but I still forget and use it!

    This is very similar to a wild plant here - known as Ragged Robin.

    Our dandelions are different.

    I love the thistle in the first group of pictures, The yellow and black daisy like plant is grown here as a garden flower.
    Vetch is very near the same.
    Somewhere on this machine I have pictures of the garden and woods will try to find them
    Thank you for naming them

    I know he is, Country Woman! Just like mine, he's so supportive of your wanting a horse!! I remember your wedding photo too - my husband looks at me like that every day, and he's a blessing :)
