This one people joked: Is it coming or going?
Most humans have a scar or two. I have met people who have scars and cannot remember the cause. I can look at the pinky on my right hand and see a diagonal scar across one joint. That is one of my earliest memories. It was caught in the door of dad’s 1941 Chevrolet. I think my sister slammed the door. I remember I sure cried as mama taped it back together.
I have two small scar points on the same hand from a water moccasin bite when I was 13. A scar on my knee from 14 when falling on a bike trying to jump a ditch like Roger Slack. I have an adult scar on my upper leg. I was on a roof cutting a shingle and the razor knife slipped. No stitches were ever applied to any cuts and only one could have used some, but just taping it closed, allowed a good scar, ;-).
Funny thing about boys, they are usually proud of scars no matter how visible they are. Girls not so much. Most girls want them danged things covered up with clothes or makeup. Sherry is hoping she has no scar on her pretty leg from the last surgery.
Boys also were never concerned about patches or tears in pants or shirts, girls cared a lot. Well until the style of torn pants came about anyway. Now it is cool. Hey even friend Lisa of http://www.lifeawayfromtheofficechair.com/ has a great shot of her in torn jeans. She is pretty cute too. I see no scars though!
That reminds me, we met ‘Alligator Ed’ once at Lake Manatee in Florida. He was selling ‘Shot-gunned Levis’ for $85. He bought them new ($15) hung them up and shot them with ‘00’ buck shot ($.25). I am sure anyone could do their own much cheaper (as long as they weren’t wearing them at the time of the shot.)
