Painter's tape...

My husband was a contractor.... He did room additions, remodels, decks, etc....and often injured himself...cuts, and scrapes were common... Just part of the job....

Well, he never wanted to take the time to treat a cut properly....do....he would usually slsp some black electrical tape over the wound... I like to think I was carrying on the tradition this morning....

I was cutting something, the rotary cutter slipped, and there it was...a small...but bleeding....cut on my left index finger.

Kneeing I had no band suds in the house, I grabbed a roll of blue painter's type, and wrapped up the little cut.... Earl would have been so proud.... Love you, Honey... Always.

Earl was watching over you for sure.

I think do, too... I miss him more with every passing day.... We knew each other neatly our whole lives... Met at 14/17... He was my anchor..

Hugs, Sandy! He would be proud that you thought to use the tape!!!

Aww Sandy, your Earl and my Terry went to the same medical school. Black tape is a necessity at our house as well. I'm more of a blue tape person, it comes off much more easily!

It touches my heart every single time you talk about Earl and the beautiful love you shared. I feel the same way about my husband and know that we are so blessed to have each other.

You and Earl were very blessed to have each other too and I know he is watching over you. I bet he is getting a chuckle out of you using that painter's tape thinking he taught you well! Lol.
