last week a guy helping me was string trimming and walked over to me with blood running down his leg. he was wearing shorts and it seem he fed out too much line and tached up the trimmer to cut off the excess. when it cut free, it slung a piece about 3" long into his shin. in, under, and back out about an inch and a half later. it was sticking out each end! i've never seen anything like it. i know it hurt, but we laughed awhile. then wed. afternoon, i had the privilege of walking over to him with a piece of mulch stuck in my leg. only the tip though. not too funny on the other side. ouch!! i hope thats the last of that.
