My post about my tragic finger injury got a lot of attention; it probably ranks as my most-commented post of all time. It seems that most of us can relate to the damage caused by an errant blade. My finger is healing, although even now the wound is pretty deep. It will be interesting to see if I have a divot in my finger even after it's completely healed. The finger went through several phases of discoloration and irregular periods of numbness that led me to believe I had suffered nerve damage of some sort, but that seems to have gone away. All in all a rather exciting event that I hope not to repeat.

I spent the weekend with the National Guard throwing grenades. It was rather hot outside. That pretty much sums it up. I must have been tired because I got home, went straight to bed and didn't wake up really until rather late the next morning.

I think I have found the replacement for my fallen motorcycle. The purchase isn't entirely in the bag yet, but it should be confirmed tomorrow. I didn't get a huge bike this time, and if everything goes as planned this bike will cost about $80/month less than the last one. It also rates about 10 miles per gallon higher on fuel economy. I will just have to get used to the cruiser seating position. It's got a bright yellow stripe so hopefully people will be able to see it when they're backing up and avoid knocking it over. Here's what it looks like:

I've already begun thinking about customizing it. Nothing extreme, but I do want some blacked-out aftermarket pipes. Not much to talk about aside from what I've covered. Between school and the Army it looks like the next year or two is going to be pretty busy, so I may not have much to post about when it comes to painting or playing with miniatures.
