I have a lot of flower beds and I am in the process of relandscaping the back yard. I had it all weeds and things cleared in one section and then my pinched nerves and heart were bothering me. I just got back to digging out more weeds and wam I hit the main sprinkler line with my army shovel. I can not use a little trowel for weeding. It takes too long and I bend and break everyone I use. I love the little fold out army shovels. I have been using them for years for everything. I drive the shovel in under the weeds to losen the roots and the weeds come out very easly. Well I drove the shove point right through the schedule 40 pvc pipe. I have over 60 pounds of pressure. More like 80 pound on that line. Well it blew dirt right up my nose, in my eyes and right into the left ear which I had surgery on not too long a go. I was coverd in mud from head to toe. Had to walk around the house to turn off the line. Then back to the back to strip down and go in and take a shower. I took a bulb suringe and kept washing dirt out of my ear. Now here I sit with an ear that feels like I am going to get another one of my killer ear infections. I had surgery on that ear last summer and it is still tender. I had sinus surgery last year and got out the plactic bottle to wash out my nose and sinus cavity. Did the dirt ever pour out of my nose. I tiped my head forward and more dirt ran out. Now I wounder how much dirt I have up in my head. I flushed until it was clear but **** one never knows. I just had eye surgery on both eyes the first part of the year and my eyes are now sore. All I can say is I am glad I was not sitting on the pipe. I am a crash dummy but this was over the top.:Stop: :Stop: :Stop: No more, I can' take it.:sidelaugh :sidelaugh You got to love stupid days like this.
