Husband will be missing his umpire gig this week as there is no way that he can get the mask on his face and even if he could . . . if a ball hit him in the face I'd have to cart him off the field.
Sunday, while picking up garden tools, he stepped on the bottom part of a pick-axe and the handle swung up and hit him in the face. It caused a cut one inch below his left eye that screamed STITCH ME so I got him a bag of ice and a towel and carted him off to the emergency room where they did take him immediately though it still took two hours.
He is SO lucky that the handle did not go an inch higher. His face swelling is starting to go down a little but the shiner is something else. He just wishes that he had a better story to go with it!!
