    About 20 minutes ago I was mowing my final yard of the day when something interesting happenned. I was on my final pass with my mower when I ducked under a branch. Some time later I woke up layed out on my back!! Apparently I came up to soon and a branch cleaned my clock. The customer pulled up in the driveway and asked me if I was looking for something. I didn't respond because my head hurt so badly. Now I have a lump and I am a bit dizzy. I told him what I thought happenned and we just laughed about it a bit. Something like this happen to anyone else?

    I hit my head thursday, and it still hurts at times. I heard a crack, like a branch, or maybe a head. It wasnt either, at least not on the outside. Just some torn skin, but feels like a concusion, i think.

    No, but I've fallen off a ledge edging with my trimmer,......... walking backwards, looking down. Atleast it was at the END of the day!

    Last year I was bushhogging when my front loader caught a three inch thick branch and almost slapped me off my tractor. Wish I could have seen it from a specators veiw, must have looked pritty funny. Knocked my hat & sun glasses about ten foot away and pissed me off so bad I went to my truck, got a chain saw and got even with the branch. Nobody was around to see that, thank god! :eek:
