    I wish I could buy everything I need to stitch myself up. I've watched them stitch me up a few times and I'm pretty sure any idiot that can sew a button on could stitch him/herself up on their own. My mom is a RN so maybe I'll ask her to hook me up with the goods and next time there will be no huge bill.

    I understand the fatigue factor but, I just started this hedge job. The way it happened was, I was working my way around the other side of some big boxwoods and stepped backward off a short railroad tie retaining wall. I stepped backward with my right foot and the clippers just met my left knee.
    I'm telling you guys, you need some chaps. I know I'm preaching but, the fix is so simple.

    Yes, safety is a huge matter. I just wanted to use "CHAPS and Azz together at your expense.
