    Scars are simple reminders that we should be careful next time. Accidents could happen both in home and work, and anywhere that is why we should keep our safety measures handy at all times. :)

    I'm glad i'm not the only one. My last one was a drill bit into the side of my hand. Knew it was a bad idea to push down the 20v drill with only a 1/8" drill bit, snapped and hand slams down into it. Thought I lucked out as I felt nothing initially, then look at the hand to see the bit into it. No stitches so nothing too bad.

    Probably my worst habit at home is not wearing safety glasses for some things that I should.

    HA, got me a fresh one, although over OLD scars.
    Set fence post a while back to move a fence line and set up a animal transfer lane from another farm to ours and vs a vs alongside a Brome hay field we have. The renters tried hot wire, calves would just walk through those as spots were low and wire high. The other end is along a drainage creek, fence on pasture to other side of that drain is trash so decided to move the fence as when on the neighbors place they bust the fence to get to hay field.

    Set the double strand four barb 12 1/2 ga today, A little blood letting occurred.

    If I had wanted to live a 100% risk free life I would have stayed in my mothers womb. Scars build character! Git er done!
