    Well last week when changing hedge trimmer blades, cut my best communication finger, and extender tendon, and had to have surgery last Friday.

    Then to make matters worse, today I discovered a bee's nest in the ground the hard way. What a sight as a friend drove by while I was doing my best dance imitations. Only got stung twice, but had 10-20 bees on my pant leg. Thank God for cargo pants!!!!!:blob2: :blob2: :blob2: :dizzy:

    JM--when I started using gas powered hedge clippers I had a series of accidents.

    several times I let the blamed things get ahold of me but never as seriously as what happened to your greeting finger.:waving:

    those things will chew up elbows and knees like one of those little mineature dobermans! :eek:

    the common denominator in getting nipped was always being careless and tired.

    good luck with your recovery.
