    I have been doing this for 16 seasons and I've never been hit yet and I'm really surprised since we have so many Purple Martins following us all day in the warm months. Are these birds all over the United States? It seems like they are all in the Windy City since there are so many of them.

    Seagulls are the worst from the air. Hidden landmines with the string trimmer still rate baddest of all.

    Nope but go peed on by a squirel. I pulled up to the lawn and parked under an oak tree, stepped out of the truck and saw a stream of what I first thought was water splashing on the roof about a foot from my head and comming toward me. I looked up to see what it was and got it right in the face. I thought my partner would die laughing!
