Pip to his friend at school: I cut down a huge tree in the backyard on the weekend. When I was doing it I hacksawed my leg.
Pip’s friend: Seriously? Did you cut your leg off?
Pip to his friend: No dude, I still have two legs.
Pip’s friend: Did you have to get stitches?
Pip to his friend: No…
but I did have to get a really big band-aid.

I love the big band aid. What a man!
It looks like he may regret it when he has to pull it off his hairy legs!
ouch ! 😦
But yeah, I agree – you’ve gotta milk these things !
Only the MOST serious of injuries require a BIG bandaid.
did you cut your leg off? that’s priceless…
i think it would be MORE manly, though, if he had used duct tape to tape a wad of cotton to his leg…my husband has been known to do that…
Boys talk such rubbish when they are together.
You know what they say: really big bandaid, really big…
…hacksaw injury, obviously.
He wants you to know that only the big bandaid would have covered his…
I had an LOL at Stomper’s comment. Really. No slapping.
Pip obviously gets his brilliant sense of humor from you! Or Ashleigh.
Ashy would never have had this ridiculous discussion with her friends at high school.
Funny! Very nice that he was doing yardwork!
He loves to saw stuff up. LOVES it!
Oh, we have that kind of manliness around here too! It strikes terror into my heart every time I hear the chainsaw…….Good it was treatable with only a band-aid, albeit a man-sized one!
Nothing of mechanical means allowed, just a handsaw.
Ooh, poor Pip! His leg looks painful. On a good note, his hair has grown in (out?) nicely. He’s a good-looking guy.
He is looking very hirsute.
Yikes! Glad it wasn’t too serious x
Nothing the big bandaid couldn’t fix.
Owww. My FIL had two gardening types using chainsaws in the front of the house yesterday and it filled me with fear every time I looked out of the window.
The sound of a handsaw is much less terrifying.
I’m loving his friend’s idea that somehow anyone would slice into their leg and not notice long enough to chop the leg off …..with a hacksaw ??
Teenaged boys are not known for their good sense!
Oh, Pip! Could we go through one year without blood and gore? Take care of yourself, please! I get queasy looking at photos on the internet!
This was barely a blip on Pip’s list of injuries.
Ow! Kindly take more care of that boy.
Your backyard looks so different from my garden! Could it be something to do with your 24 degree winters???
It’s sunny again today! I think that’s 4 days running. Just boasting…
Winter is our dry season. We haven’t had rain for months now. Everything is a bit brown in the backyard right now.
looks like he could do with a whittling kit! Glad his leg is ok! x
