Re: Barns


Hey, OK!!! Ms Beans will cure him of that barn-wrecking habit in no time. She cured me, and I only wrecked one before I met her. [Tried to find a picture of it--the barn--but didn't.]

I'll bet if it had been Shamus, the 80-pound enforcer, that hit the
barn, it would have crumbled. Just crumbled.

Re > Hows the job going? Well, I guess it is time to come clean.

I began work at Arbor Farms Mon, Mar 15. It snowed Tues so we didn't
work. On my 3rd day, Thurs, little Ms. Motormouth picked up a large
stack of pots, went the wrong direction and came directly at me with
them. I took a step back to get out of her way and went down a long
slope. I managed to stay on my feet the whole way down but ran out of
room and smacked my left shoulder into the side of the barn.


I finished the day in a fair amount of pain. I worked Friday, but
just
wasn't able to keep up since I couldn't use my left arm. So March
19th
was my last day. I had my reasons for not accepting their offer of a
workman's comp claim. This arm was already in bad shape last fall,
including the 2 ruptured neck disks; this incident just aggravated a
problem I already had, but which I had thought was 'fixed'. It's 3
weeks later and I am able to use the arm, but I can only lift it just
so
far and in limited direction. But it is getting better, though I can't
sleep through the night.


I now realize that I'm not going to be able to work in a tree nursery
as
my left arm just is not strong. I also realize I need a job that
provides insurance. So I'm back on unemployment for awhile and will
look for something to which I am better suited. Meanwhile, I am
enjoying working my own garden at a slow pace while my arm heals.


Sorry I didn't say anything sooner, but you were all so supportive, I
sort of felt like I was letting you down. The job was fun while it
lasted.


There is no need to reply, but if you do, let's confine this topic to
just one day, ok?


Kitty, who IS able to hit the broad side of a barn.

Kitty, after the discussion on spring planted Peonies I diid ask the
GH
owner
if she had rcd complaints on the peonies and passed on the
discussion.
She
said she has never had complaints but would assume most gardeners
purchase
them
thinking they would not get bloom the first season but we have had
some
bloom
in the GH.
Hows the job going? Have you worked with any new shrubs or trees
we should know about?
