Well, they say a lot of things but, one of the things they say is:
"Everything has thorns and is trying to hurt you."
We certainly found that to be true the other day. We were clearing brush off a couple of the levies for the up-coming dam inspection.
Mark spent a lot of his time trying to keep the weed wacker and dull pole saw running.
I spent my time loading the brush into the back of the truck and hauling it away and unloading it.
After lunch we stopped by the shop and got a sharpened chain for the pole saw.
Mark decided to go old school and use loppers for some of the brush.
I would like to add something else to “You know what they say about South Texas ...”
“Everything has teeth!”
That lump in the water as an alligator. I kept a close eye on him but he didn’t seem too interested in us.
Eight hours and a lot of scrapes, and puncture wounds later, we completed our project for the day.
