Hurt my thumb with the hammer again!

A recent customer just bought a new home.  We were there cleaning while she was hanging some paintings.  What struck me was she was using a comb to hold the nail while hammering.  I asked her what she was doing and she responded that since recovering from serious illness, her bones are very brittle.  Her quick thinking to do the work herself is a great helpful household hint.  A hair comb is a great tool to hold a nail to avoid getting struck by the hammer.  Give it a try yourself, I have found it to be very useful.
