Extreme Gardening

Ah the blog has been neglected. It seems when I'm up to my eyeballs at work with technical documentation, I run out of words by the time I get home. Well, I don't think I'm in any danger of publishing a novel.

I did want to share a funny thing that went around a mailing list I'm on. One of our members wanted to show off her new gardening duds:

"This year I have some new duds. The netting suit from Cabelas which fits over even winter jackets has given me great peace of mind after being bitten twice this year by ticks. The suit also covers the head.

The Harley helmet (my husband's) is to soften the blows of the red shouldered hawks - once they finish their nest and until the chicks fledge the parents will attack if we are within 200 feet of their tree. I was whacked twice last year - just think of where those talons have been."

The things we do just to get out in the garden! :-))

That outfit is WILD... and probably quite effective! I love it. The helmet is hilarious. ;-)
