4 Hours On The Whippy
#1

32°C, no clouds

The closest shade trees are a cruel 200M away

The client says it's humid, I wish it was

Tennis elbow

Trigger finger

Sunburn

Mud pie snot

Grit build up between my shirt collar and neck

Grit build up where the sunglasses sit on my nose

Grit in all my wrinkles

 

Summer has arrived

I am overly optimistic, I am 3/4 full of beer again!

Office life, not contest

 

I will bushy snot until one of my oldies finds me dead on the lawn because the mower noise stopped (ran out of petrol)

No offence meant but as one old f@rt to another were you using a loop handle whipper? - I put my back out in a place I haven't had trouble with before about 10 days ago - the smoking gun is my new toy - the Ego whipper - loop handle - slight stooped posture - crab walk - crooked arms with weight on shoulders, elbows, hands - no shoulder strap 

 

so I went back to my bull horn handle Honda with shoulder strap for a bit while the chiropractor works his magic - chalk and cheese - whipping for almost any length of time is effortless - I remembered why I've used nothing else all the time I've mowed.

 

I'll go back to the Ego soon because it's so damn good but I'll keep the Honda for anything other than a quick edge on a suburban block

 

Can't do much about the summer tho :(  - we're in a dream patch here crisp in the mornings and ~26-27.
