That can get really noisy and exciting if for some reason you turn the PTO on. So I've heard. I personally never have had a manure spreader some unhooked from the drawbar while unloading. Except once. When I was young.

I have had many dumb things (actually everything) to happen when I was younger, but of course I was younger yesterday than I am today.  ffcheesy

I have been that distracted before too.

Sorry, but hilarious! I hope your back is ok!

I have a swing like that that folds down into a bed kinda thing. It usually sits on a gentle downhill slope and I'll get to rocking so the back legs will lift off a bit, maybe I shouldn't do that.

Good on ya Boss. Guys our age don't bounce real well, but we do know how to roll. I'll just bet your were laughing before you hit the ground. I have done things similar a 'time or two' and I laughed at my blunder the instant I realized my mis-calculation Someplace I have a video clip of myself getting my feet tripped up whhn I was bucking logs. I was in the woods and the game camera happened to have me in sight. I will say that I did the roll well and even did a "tad-daa" move when I got back up. I felt stupid, but it was funny..... I think.

Glad you are OK.  That could have been bad.

At first I thought it was the opening scene of a horror movie where you were trying to get away from the flesh eating, land walking, piranha bream in your pond and you tripped over the swing as they were coming for you!

If it won't roll, its not a log; it's still a tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not trees.

Another day, another stupid thing. I resurrected my celling fan wirly-gig today, and when putting it back up, didnt grab gloves and pinched the cheek of my right hand between a pipe and a sliding coupling..

Being pinched hard enough that the pinched area evaporates, was once again, unexpected. I was standing on the edge of my logrite trailer side rails hugging a 10 ft pipe when I did it.

It'll fill in.   :usa:   Throw a band aid across it and try to pull the edges together and it may heal faster.

She'll heal up, might look like a watery callas that lost it's skin covering for awhile though. Keep the dirt out, no grease guns or mud ball handling for a few days. Have a vinyl glove handy for the dishes.  ffcheesy ffcheesy ffcheesy

Sorry Jeff, those things hurt like the dickens and I don't know if it worse when the blister pops or when it doesn't and it builds pressure. Either way it's really sensitive.

Tim, be very careful what you ask for here, you might get a bit more than you bargained for. ffcheesy
