Your story convinced me to tell our finger story. My husband cut all the fingers off of his right hand in a little incident with a table saw about thirty years ago. The doctor got all of them reattached, except for his ring finger, which was too mangled to save. But save it he did…. in a jar of formaldehyde. Doc sent the amputated finger home with hubby and it has since made six trips to school for “show and tell” with our kids and now the grand kids are starting to display it for their classmates. After all these years, it looks pretty groady, but is still a big hit with the kindergarten kids!
