I have to agree with HRL about having to rely on crutches. It’s like all the new-fangled stuff on cars that’s dumbing down America’s driving skills (if they weren’t bad enough already 🙄).
But then again having a little fun with language isn’t a bad thing.

Reading this thread reminds me of the joke:

Well Jerry, I tain't been round for a while, first I heard about your ailment. I can sympathize with you
as I slipped on the ice two years ago and broke the end off the big bone at the wrist. Shifted the
whole right (the good one) over about 3/4 of an inch to the outside. The saw bones gave me
three choices as to what to do with it and the best one seems to be just let it heal where it was.
Took about a year before I could really start to use it all the time., I don't have 1/2 the
strength I did have in it, I'm restricted to the movement by about's only gotta
last another 23 years.

Well, I'm faced with a bit of a dilemma- - - -do the flexing exercises the doc wants me to, which involves forcing the finger joints way past what's comfortable, or bandage it in a way that prevents flexion of the middle joint and minimizes the pain. If I flex, which keeps that joint from stiffening up, I have to take some pretty potent pain medication (opiods). Sort of like choosing to get beat to death with a stick or a chain! Plus, that amount of movement keeps breaking the incision open around the stitches! It's hard to heal up that way.

After the cast came off with my wrist Jerry, they scheduled me for 6 weeks of PT. And....I went
for a couple of weeks, cuz the insurance was footing the bill....and, my therapist was a really
cute 30 something young lady.
All I got out of the sessions though, were a lot of pain and none of it seems to be getting my
hand working again.
So......I quit!!! And went back to what has always worked for me when I'd had an injury in the past.
Work!!!!! I started cranking handles on the milling machine and lathe and doing some light hammering
and twisting wrenches. Never thought I be able to turn my gimp wrist around enough to finger the
guitar, which I've beat on ever since I was a kid. But every day got a little bit better and now....I'm
up to about 70% or what I was, and don't expect to get much because of the way this quack left the
bones positioned.
But what the's good enough to last me those next 23 years.

HHR is correct but now older people can have a secret code, it is called cursive writing.
