    To give you an update and some more chuckles

    Here are some update photos to the fight... which I don't think I won..

    First picture was about 7 hours after I got smacked by the bowl....

    Second is this morning after I got up...

    We are having lunch with some friends today... will make for some interesting conversation...

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    May be time to call in the leeches! Do you want me to send you some?

    You do look like an older prize fighter! It will make a really good war story!

    Heal fast and get back in the saddle!

    Dang Chuck, that's a nice one. I hope you get better soon.

    I use safety glasses when I turn. I did take a shot to the forehead from a biscuit cutter a few months ago. Left a nice bruise. After seeing Chucks eye, what type of shield does everyone use.

    Ouch...that hurts just looking at it. I guess it's fortunate that it didn't hit your nose...or directly on your eye.

    John, I use a Trend Airshield, but have also used the regular ol' AO Safety faceshield. Either of them would have probably deflected a flying bowl with no more damage than some rattled nerves and a potential change of pants.

    Evidently, I don't use one when I should...

    Ordinarily I have a face shield I got from "The Woodwright" a wood store in Spring Texas when I lived there... it's a head band with a bubble shield over the face... I've since replaced the face shield with a new one from CSUSA... (you know you can't clean the clear plastic with acetone.... it turns very opaque.)
