PostSubject: Who'd have thought??   Fri Apr 25, 2008 11:55 am

I've been spending a lot of time clearing brush from my backyard this week. Last year, I really didn't do much brush clearing, because I was still in shock, and at this time of the year, I wasn't even eating, let alone caring what the back yard looked like. SO, this year, there was more than usual to do. The neighbor's Rose of Sharon bushes have swarmed into the back, and we had two-year-old saplings growing where they definitely shouldn't be.........

Well, this morning, I was trying to dig out a particularly large sapling (about six feet tall) and was wrestling that stupid thing while I tried to dig it out. I pulled it waaaaaaaaay back to try and dig it out better - and that wretched thing slipped from my hands, came flying back up and slapped me across the face! OhMy :Hahaha:
Who'd have thought that a tree could be such a brute?? I have a feeling that he felt that he was defending himself against my attack. Well, bucko......he paid for THAT. grinsmiley The sapling is now chipper-fodder.


Larry, you just remember this story the next time you tell me to lean into my monitor. batEyes :haha:

I'm sorry to hear that, Savannah! I hope you are o.k.!

Reminds me back a few years ago when I was clearing out weeds, brush & limbs out of our back yard. I was using a pair of trimmers that I was tackling a particularly big branch with.

Stupid me; I had one end in my hands and the other end against the side of my chest. I was going at it and felt a pop.

Needless to say, it hurt to breathe too deeply, cough or laugh for a week or so. I think I cracked something. I hope your face O.K. grinsmiley

I'm glad you showed that tree who's in charge by finally getting it chopped, after how it attacked you! ROTFL I hope your face is okay now and the tree didn't hurt it too badly.

What are we going to do with you Savannah? Every time you turn around some strange thing is happening to you. I am never going to visit you. I'm afraid it might rub off. Laughing

Seriously though, I hope you're okay. And I'm glad the tree got the worst of it.

:Hahaha: Cheryl!!

PAM! Thanks for the warning! I jumped back just in time!!

Rhonda....... :Hahaha: I'd usually be glad to, but I think I should leaf it alone for now.

My face is okay now. I must have jumped back faster than I realized, because it barely left a mark - and that faded pretty quickly. Stung like fire at first, though!

Maybe next time I take out a tree, I should wear hazard gear.... batEyes


Oh.........Did I mention that I have to repair the siding on the house? It's about twenty-five feet up. THAT should be an interesting story. :Hahaha:

I'll come up and do it when I get there. Don't you be going up 25 feet with your track record. Just have that cake ready, lol.

Or at least get one of those big net type things you see at the circus. ROTFL

Oh yes! Even though I was just lumbering along last night, I rooted out that pun! You're no sap when it comes to comedy. grinsmiley
I guess Larry thinks we're barking up the wrong tree, though.


He thinks we're nuts? Huh? What a joak. batEyes
