Finagle's corollary to Murphy's Law

Anything that can go wrong, will-at the worst possible moment.

"Anything that can go wrong, will"---In January a trough full of ice slipped and fell on my toe. After three, painful weeks of ice, elevation, Buddy taping and wearing oversized Crocs an x-ray revealed a nasty fracture.

"at the worst possible moment"---One week before lambing is expected to start I had surgery to repair the fracture. My pinned toe is encased in gauze dressing and protected by a stiff soled walking boot. Crutches for support and instructions to only touch down with my heel  limits my usefulness in the barn. Hopefully the ewes will wait until later in March, so my kind family and friends do not need to act as midwives.
