    Let me start.

    1. Had a grinder with a wire brush attachment that caught my left knee (still healing) that was a month ago
    2. Burn on left forearm from muffler from mower
    3. Poison ivy on right arm all healed up. I don't know how I got it.
    4. Currently have Poison ivy above right ankle still wondering how I got it this time.
    5. Small burn from weed whacker (weed eater, line trimmer or whatever you call them depending which side of the mason Dixon line you on ) under my right arm.
    6. Several scratches from prickers and thorns.

    Come on guys admit it what have you gotten this year???

    So far I've been lucky, only got burned real bad on my leg from the muffler on my mower. I think that scar will be there for a while.

    No injuries yet to report, knock on wood. Just normal aches and pains.

    I was standing on the tongue of the trailer and slipped off....on the way down,my shin hit the edge of the trailer which hurt like hell. It didn't even cut my pants but when i pulled my pants up to look at the leg,there was a half inch cut and i could see the bone! I put a piece of paper towel over the cut with string tied around it to hold it in place.I was going to go to the hospital at night or sooner it it swelled up and got worse,but ,I think the Lord was with me.At night,i cleaned it out with peroxide,applied some medicine and a butterfly band aid,and it has healed up nicely.
