    a wrist brace.  I've had problems over the years with compressed nerves in my hands and arms and have had a pair of wrist braces for a long time.  They're totally worth it!  In fact, I'm going to wear one of them to bed tonight so I can get through one more work day this week.  ;-)

      What fragile corporeal shells we all have.  Well, except J, stud that he is.  But who knows - maybe he wears a brace on something he's just not fessing up to.

      I'll put wrist brace on my shopping list right now.

      Thanks welso.

        No secret brace-wearing here. When it comes to the heavy lifting in the garden I've always made sure to think it through and not get in a rush. I simply cannot afford an injury.

        That being said, Tuesday found me climbing up the side of a building being framed. I made a site visit to the winery addition and the stairs to the second floor haven't been constructed yet. The only way up was to climb. It didn't help that there were three other people watching me as I scrambled up through the framing. One slip and I would have been sprawled out on concrete 20' below. Talk about pressure! But fortunately I made it up and back down in one piece.
