    In general I don't post pictures of my family on the open Internet out of respect for them.
    I don't post pictures of myself out of respect for everyone else ;)

    I was slightly surprised by how many I had on Flickr that loosely fit the theme.

    I predict there will be a rash of "cameraface" reflection selfies in this month's competition.
    Still it's a challenge isn't it - take a picture of yourself you can bear to share :thumbsup: ?

    :D...and I can now confirm they bloody hurt if you happen to even brush past one! Just clipped a bud and my shirt picked up loads of splinter-like thorns. Without thinking, I tried to brush them off with my hand - resulting in a handful of splinters - which hurt, and forcing a whole bunch of the little blighters through my shirt and into my shoulder! Which hurt some more!

    Two showers and a swim have failed to shift them - they seem to be barbed - pulling at them has no effect! :rolleyes::(

    Still everyday’s a school day!:)

    Thanks! Cacti thorns aside, it’s been a cracking day ‘at work’!

    Thanks for that. Pretty much confirms what I’ve discovered myself! I’m going to have to live with these little blighters for a while, as getting them out is practically impossible!

    Just a final update on ‘cactus-gate’.

    My wife had a fun morning, ‘waxing’ my shoulder with duct tape!

    A great improvement, with most of the protruding bits of splinters removed - though it has still left what was below the surface there. At least now, my shirts don’t ‘catch’ on the blighters, so an improvement in overall comfort.

    You can stop sniggering at the back now!:p

    I must say, I haven't sniggered even once! I can just imagine the bother :( If I was your wife, I'd probably tie you down on a chair and dig the rest out! However, if it starts showing signs of redness and swelling of the skin around the place where the rest are buried, go and see a doc. They might cause an infection.

    Thanks Marika. I’m in good hands, my wife is a doc - sympathy is in short supply though! Typical medic!:rolleyes:

    After nearly 30 years together though, I’m used to it! :D
