yeah, I thought this about my dogs.We won't have to worry about that. He's too small to do that, and he can't use his rear legs so as long as something's sufficiently tall he's never reaching it.
So, I am really thinking I should retreat myself back to bed this morning.
Got up to do some yard work.
Grab the electric weed eater to cut a path through the tall grass.
Suddenly it sparks and flames up behind me: The extension cord had a damaged spot that arced out in a spectacular fashion
Weed eating done.
So I tidy in the front yard. Stuff that has been neglected over the last few years of illness, lack of time, and more illness.
Ripping the dry rotted fabric of the old popup gazebo and shoving it in the garbage can. it is trash day after all!
So now a couple of black bee things start buzzing about.
Maybe I should move on, do something else?
Nah, it's be Ok.
So one of them does a fly-by.
And stings me in the hand. In the fleshy part below the pinky.
(row of explicits)
So, house remedies, Aspirin, Dermoplast spray and dietary supplements later, this still hurts.
Ok this will have to wait as well.
Let's see what else I can do today.
Maybe nothing on the roof.
No more electricity.
perhaps no fire either....
Ok, I think I will just knit something....then again. I have poked myself with my needles before, too.
Maybe read? Paper cuts are not so horrible.
I'd agree if it wasn't for the "can't use his rear legs" part. He would be unable to hop onto a stepping stool, without us helping.yeah, I thought this about my dogs.
Now I have to make darn sure I am not leaving stepping stools out for them to make it on the counter.
Dog looking at me from the kitchen table:
'What?! The cat does it all the time!'
yeah, pup, I know. Don't like it then either. Get your rump off my table. (it's a hot mess, more like a desk, but you get the drift.
I have a Lot of Ryobi tools. For production work, I recommend Milwaukee.I am happy to report back that as of 4:40 PM local DLST, no further incident has occurred.
The hand is still a wee bit tender, but mostly pain free.
I do need to toss the weed eater in the shed though.
I might buy some battery powered tools here in the nearest future.
I am taking recommendations. I have some Ryobi and Porter Cable. And a couple tools from the Walmart band (I did not buy them, too many different brands for my taste)
People seem confused sometimes as to why no one's engaging with certain questions. When a quick search would show the same question being asked in different way tens or hundreds of time.No what I find amazing on MT, after 17 years of posting here..... that trolls show up and think they are new or something original.....

Trail is called "Tunnel Drive". When I was a kid, we would drive out to where it ends at the Arkansas River, jump in with inner tubes, and float back to tow. These days, you have to park and walk two miles to get to the river.
