We had a cleanup job to do today that I really didn't want to mess with, but my brother was bent on doing the job. This job was mentioned in my thread "Recurring Cleanup". Well, we went out to do it, and nothing good became of it. End result: A trip to the ER for me, and now my mower is busted all to hell. First issue: We decided to knock down the whole thing with a couple line trimmers, blow the debris into rows, rake it up, and mow the remainder down. At some point in all that, I realized a foxtail managed to get caught inside my ear canal, couldn't get it to come out, so I had to go to the emergency room to get it removed. They checked me in, and got it taken care of in less than a hour. After the ER visit, we went back to the jobsite to try and finish up. Well, I went to run the mower back there for the 2nd time, and ran over a pry-bar. Bent up the blade and busted the engine pretty bad. I suppose it would've been in my best interest to just take the rest of the day off after the first incident, but I wasn't ready to throw in the towel. Now I've been forced to. By the end of the day, I'm just glad I didn't damage my ear any worse, and at least I have another mower so I can resume work on Monday.
