-the tops of your fingers are white and the rest of your hands are tan. (tops of your fingers are griping the handles of the mowers and facing down....no sun)


Are you sure that's not white finger disorder from vibration??

Something will help that! Have you guys hear of OXY-CLEAN? Try it with dish soap and an old tooth brush! Works great! Just let it soak first.

When you come home and finely take a shower only to discover the bottom of the floor is now green.

No matter how many q-tips you use, dirt always still comes out of your ears.
