Always wear something on your head and safety glasses.  Why you ask?
Well,
I was trimming back a large overgrown privet up on a step ladder, large
limb
cut loose where I wanted it to, but hit the edge of jerkboy's roof on
his
shack and flipped back and coldcocked me in the head.  The do rag I
always
wear kept it from tearing the skin and all my glasses are safety glasses
(I
get them through work) and that saved the left eye.  Happened so fast I
couldn't jump off the ladder.  Just dressed it w/ lemon verbena/witch
hazel
toner.  It's turning sriously purple already.  That ought to start some
rumors at work tomorrow - LOL.  Oh well.   So if you're gonna do any
heavy trimming over your head - words to the wise my friends!   Be safe
-
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays & like that....
