Do you keep your tetanus shot up to date. My doctor had advised me about 14 years ago to have a booster every ten years, so I was up to date and didn't have to rush down there for a shot. Meanwhile, my foot is propped up and I'm getting on with some genealogy. Too hot to work outside, anyway.

DON'T DO THIS, PLEASE!
This morning I was very foolish. I was out gardening wearing flip flops. Standing on the rocks in the front garden I was removing columbine seed heads. In order to reach some at the back of the bed I put my foot onto the soil. Yikes! What was that, as a huge pain went through my big toe. As I looked down at my foot I saw blood pouring out. I had trodden on something really sharp which had punctured my shoe and gone right into my foot, almost right through. D helped me into the bathroom where I washed and dressed the wound and he came back into the house with this piece of rusty wire. It was buried in the ground held in by the right angle and sticking up along side the rock. Obviously some piece of construction metal.
