well I opened the stove and the burning block of wood fell out. without thinking I grabbed it and threw it back in the stove. my thumb and first finger just about stuck to the burning coals on the outside of this block of white oak.
man did it hurt. kept thinking what a stupid thing I had just done. I got to the freezer and found a bag of green beans. I held onto that from bag of beans for hours till the sun came up and then some. well it worked with some positive thinking and attempt to freeze my burned digits I have minimal damage and no blisters, some dead wrinkled skin, good luck getting finger prints off me.
