Not a good day for me yesterday. While mowing with my ZTR, ran into a metal pipe sticking vertical out of the ground, bent the rod that turns my blade, that's going to cost me about $485.00. Later while weed eating, I notice the grass was moving, at a closer look I was surrounded by 4 Copperheads, one I was standing on. The one I was standing on took a bite at my pants, luckily I was wearing loose pants. On the way home listening to the radio, I heard the weather man saying it's getting to be summer and expect hot tempatures. Get home and read the newspaper, gas prices steadily rising, average price about $1.36 and expecting to climb to $2.00 or more this summer. Man, I love having my own business, never a dull moment !
