This is the scene of the crime. Peanut decided to do some pruning on this pine tree with a pole saw. He climbed up the tall ladder and when he cut the branch it flipped back on him and knocked the chain saw into his chest, which knocked him off the ladder and about 10 feet to the left. He was there alone, so he had to yell for a neighbor who was passing to stop and help him.
Some things are just too high to reach.
Old people should not be on ladders with pole saws--if it is necessary to break this rule you should take a partner with you.
That limb was just too close to the house.
Take your shirt off before an iv or you will have to keep it on for days.
Pain meds can make some people violently sick to their stomach--stick with those that are not narcotics.
To the hospital staff it is important that they bring a pamphlet about falling and how to quit smoking literature to you at 5:00 a.m. It’s not enough to leave it you must wake up and sign for it. And no the fact that you have never been a smoker does not really matter.
Our kids say that some people have to take the keys from their parents but it looks like they are going to have to take chain saws!
Even when you do something a bit silly, your friends will pray for you and call with concern and the Good Lord will protect you when you are falling off ladders with sharp saws nearby!
