    Yeah I hit a news paper once.... never again. But my worst is dog/kid toys laying in the lawn every week. I guess part of lawn care is picking up after people to some degree.

    The most painful part for me is getting through my head that we are really at the mercy of the weather. It could be drought, cold, wind, heat, rain, whatever. Now that I'm doing chemical apps, it seems like the wind never stops blowing :dizzy:

    I hit a baseball one time and shattered half of the deck! It was a Exmark 21". Needless to say I have to chase the baseball and parts of the deck!!
