Then going out to breakfast the morning after I got back (Sept. 4), I was bitten by a German Shepard on a leash passing me on the left. (Fortunately I'm right handed. ) I was talking to a friend and didn't even see the dog until it happened. The folks in the emergency room were great.
There is _no_ permanent damage but it took a small piece out of my wrist and I'm going to be very limited in my use of my left hand for at least two more weeks.
I was pretty badly shaken up at the time but that's passed off.
Among other things this means that metal work I have to do from Worldcon will be in later in October then I told people. Working in metal will be the last thing I'll be able to do as this continues to heal.
Next post will have a photo of a commission I brought to Worldcon and some other news.
