Smacked a rock off one of my teeth today while weed whacking...hurt like a son of a gun for a bit but luckily it didn't break. I have to remember not to smile while trimming... :D

Also shot part of a pop can out of my Z today and as it flew up into the air it went into a near-by road and hit a cop car on the fly... :blush:. I thought I was far enough away from the road and flying debris wouldn't be an issue but this piece of aluminum kind of acted like a frisbee for a bit then as it got out there a ways it kind turned up and then started fluttering down just as the cop drove under it...doink!! I stopped but he just kept on going. I kept my eye out for him as I was sure he was going to come back but he never did. I even called the restuarant and told them about it so that if he called they could direct him towards me.

One of those days I guess... :dizzy:

Sounds like you had a good day.LOL I launched a rock off of my face mowing my own lawn when I got home. I just picked up a stick edger and it cuts down the amount of crap flying around while trying to use a string trimmer. And i think I sent a snake for a ride Friday, it wasn't very big but it flew out of the shut like a champ and landed on the side of this house.

I hate to laugh but that is funny. I have had rocks smack me in the face leaving a nice sharp pain and a line of sweaty blood but thank god nothing in the teeth.

You might want to consider going out there tomorrow equipped with these.......

Took a rock off the side of my temple two weeks ago. Just below my eye glasses. That hurt. :cry:

atleast once a season I get a rock off the tip of my nose and then a tear runs down my face from the shooting pain. :D

LOL! Yeah Nate, I need both of those. Protect my choppers and the coppers... :D

I forgot about the rock up the nose deal...haven't had that happen this season yet but I'm sure it will. Broke the crystal on my watch last year while trimming. :angry:

I've had to remind myself numerous time this season already to shut my mouth while I'm trimming. My customers must wonder what the heck I'm doing coughing and spitting like a fool to get the rock, mud, grass or whatever out of my mouth.
Glad I had my mouth shut when I hit that snake the other day!

Yeah turned out okay I guess. Kind of funny now when I think back on it...watching that aluminum fly out there and I'm thinking "uh oh" then of all things it drops on a cop car. Seemed like it happened in slow motion as well... :dizzy:

Hey Adam,
What's shaking buddy? Happy go lucky...that's me. Plus it's hard not to smile when I'm thinking about getting home to my two boys! But now I know why I have green speckled teeth...I'll have to think about something I don't like while I trim. :D

Man, what's wrong with the Yanks?!?! Twins are playing great ball so far but the dang White Sux are having a career start...go figure.
