    ...Mo calls 911. My back is killing me! Sciatica!
    Two officers show up to assess if an ambulance is needed. I'm sitting on the side of my bed just moaning & groaning! One of the officers looks around the room & asks... "You collect kukris?" "Huh?"...says I as I look over to where he's looking...

    He whips out his auto Benchmade & fires it. Then I show him my EDC's & my latest fixed blade purchase. I only regret that I didn't get his name or model of Benchmade he had.

    We both had smiles on our faces as I hobbled in pain out to the living room & the First Aid Squad crew to be taken to the hospital. I just thought it was cool to meet an auto carrying officer of the law.

    After a morphine drip, some blood work, tests, I was sent home. Mo & I got home on 8/1 at about 5am. Got an appointment to see my doc & hopefully get some lidocaine injected in my lumbar region!

    That's a lot of kukri's. Love the story but not the pain you must have been in. Mo is good for you.

    Yep... Mo is very good to me. I'm still in some pain & just hobbled around all day grabbing onto the furniture so I didn't fall flat on my face! Managed to do 2 loads of wash, feed me & the dogs 3 times and let them outside 6 times to do their business. One more time with them outside & we all hit the sack! :shakie:
    I'm very glad I didn't have any autos of my own sitting around in plain sight! I remember saying to the officer that those 3 EDC's were the only knives I actually take out of the house but I forgot about the little SAK on my keychain. I also told him that none of the knives in my collection have any blood on them! I'm pretty sure he told me his auto had 'cut' him a few times.

    It's always cool to meet another collector out in the wild.

    Cool story!

    Seeing Gary with THAT collection is very wild..he appears to be an avid collector of all things sharp.

    Hate to say it but sometimes surgery is necessary, you probably will never be what you used to be but you'll probably be better than without it. Worked for me nut I'm still hurtin but I'm functioning

    Thanks all! Today I visited the orthopedic doctor. I didn't get much sleep last night & had much pain in my back & right leg. Got my outpatient injection surgery of lidocaine coming up soon... but not soon enough! I asked the doctor if I'll be able to play the piano after the surgery. He said... "Definitely!" I said... "Amazing! I've never played the piano in my life!"

    Get betterer G! Backs can be a bitch to heal up. Rest up and take it easy, as if you had a choice.

    Here's a SpongeBob for your pain...

    Here it is Friday the 18th. Had the right side L4 & L5 transforamiani selective nerve root block done! Just means I was shot up with some lidocaine in my painful back vertebrae. Seems to be working... still some achiness present but I sure can tolerate it better & not swearing as much. :shakie: The dogs like me better, too!
