Greenhorn Advice

NEVER, NEVER, EVER sit on any outside riding implement after it has been sitting in the sun and if any part of your leg is exposed. Voice of experience, I am now branded as a "greenhorn", and it hurts.

I'll tell you another one: When you are down on your hands and knees weeding in the garden, make sure your shirt tail is tucked in your pants. I got the worst sunburn of my life in a saddle pattern over my lower back one time. You could still see the difference in skin color the next year. And I was only out there about 3 hours.

Yup, when you're working around ranching/farming equipment, cattle or horses, it's no time to dress like you're going to the mall. Everyone who works for me wears long pants, leather boots, shirt, hat or cap and gloves. Over the years I've seen a lot of injuries because of improper dress.

Yep, there's little "Gotchas" that hide in metal winter AND summer! After the padding wears off, tractor seats can get pretty warm too. That's why guys drape their old jackets on them. And why aluminum foundry workers spit on billets before touching them. :)

Try Not to Buy a Black Pickup or Car! Unless it
has a darn good air conditioner system! I have a
hard time getting groceries home (or a jug of milk) without spoiling in my black Intrepid. I
usually shop for cold items in the evening, or
pack a chilled cooler.
