    As I was changing my blade on my snapper 21 for I did not want to ruin the what I call good high lift blade my hand slipped gashed my knuckle open... I looked at it and saw that I saw white confirmed it was bone... I contemplated then I wrapped my hand up blew the driveway off and left a not saying I went to get stiches and would be back.... Then I get home and darn near take my toe off on our pool now I am without hand and foot but I can say operating equipment with a damaged hand is harder than I thought.. Yoiu ever have one of those days?

    You know, the other day I was out for a ride on the ATV with the guys. We came across a sand pit and everybody starting going up as high as they would dare before turning and coming down...
    My buddy saw me just sit there and watch. Ten years ago, I'd of waxed all of them. Probably could now too. He comes up to me later and says, "Since when did you grow up?" I smiled and said, "When tomorrow I have to get up, and go to work where I own the company, and I'm the only employee."
    I where gloves, all the time. I where googles whenever the blower, mower or trimmer are being operated. I don't lift anything without a plan. Call me paranoid, but I like what I do. I'll do anything to keep doing it.
