That's a Knee!

Tom and I were wrestling rocks into a staircase. I had just cut a 3/4" root with my hoe. Several days later he wrote: When I looked at the pants I was wearing . . . they looked like I had gotten careless with black paint. There were a couple of one and a half inch lines of black that are 1/4" wide. In addition, there are half a dozen blotches that look like ink was spilled and splattered. The black penetrated thru to the inside of the blue jeans."
