Fingers and Fists

Earlier in my life, I would have tried to adapt this contraption to hold my beer.

By the time you have a brace on each hand, well, there's a masturbation joke in there, but I'll leave it alone

The braces help me sleep. Over time, I slowly clench my fingers into a fist. At night, my fists end up by my side. During the course of the night, I get in to some uncomfortable positions. I've actually created a yoga position I call "Fat man sleeping on hand."

The braces keep my fingers from clenching and have definitely improved my quality of sleep.

For anyone interested, the cheapest I could find were here.


  1. Tony!
    I have just looked up the word 'masturbation' in the dictionary and I am most shocked to find its meaning. I had not idea such things went on. :-)
    That said........there could be a business opportunity in this. We could buy in bulk and dye them black and resell as the 'grip master' or possibly the 'grip mistress' :-)

  2. hi Tony
    did you see the game today...?
    I thought the 1st half was well contested with both teams having a right go
    Kriss's goal was typical of him...
    2nd half with the whole team changed was a bit less pleasing and dinamo
    got a lot more physical and the injury to K.C. in the 1st half wasn't good.
    Craig Gordon done well first half ..still 1--1 Ronny undefeated..

    was going to post a masturbation joke...
    but things might get out of hand :-))


  3. By the way i just ordered a chicken and an egg from amazon...
    i'll let you know....

  4. Hey Tony, re your previous post..."Concerto de Aranjuez" was the first piece of classical music I ever voluntarily listened to. I fell in love with it instantly and I still regularly listen to it (even more so than "The Celtic Song")...I have versions by John Williams and Narciso Yepes as well as Miles Davis' jazz adaptation "Sketches of Spain", although, the first time I heard it played was by the Venezuelan guitarist Alirio Diaz who, like John Williams, studied guitar with the great Andres Segovia. It is no surprise therefore, that these two students of El Maestro are often described as 'flawless' guitarists...however, I presume they never wore your wonderful hand brace...keep smiling...weebobbycollins...

  5. There's a few goalies I know who could benefit from this.

    Keep on Truckin'

  6. hi Tony
    hopefully a wee laugh to start your day.....
    ane and Pauline are outside their nursing home, having a drink and a smoke, when it starts to rain.
    Jane pulls out a condom, cuts off the end, puts it over her cigarette, and continues smoking.
    Pauline: What in the hell is that?
    Jane: A condom. This way my cigarette doesn't get wet.
    Pauline: Where did you get it?
    Jane: You can get them at any pharmacy.
    The next day, Pauline hobbles into the local pharmacy and announces to the pharmacist that she wants a packet of condoms.
    The pharmacist, obviously embarrassed, looks at her kind of strangely (she is after all, over 80 years of age), but very delicately asks what brand of condom she prefers.
    ”Doesn't matter Sonny, as long as it fits on a Camel.”
    The pharmacist fainted.
