Happy St. Paddy's Day!!

Yesterday I worked ten hours doing tree removal. The first two hours were spent pruning a jungle of bamboo. My arms and face are still recovering. The small, broken stalks sliced my wrists and forearms and the leaves rubbed their rough spikes across bloodshot eyeballs. (Mel Gibson would have been pleased.) Being a soldier in Viet Nam must have really sucked. Gratefully there were no mosquitoes or shrapnel.
