The poll is now around long enough that I should move into the next age class (I won't change my gender though).

Bill, You look mighty innocent in that shot. The one with you holding two masses of Opuntia - that one shows your tough streak! 8)

Yeah, what Daiv said :lol:

Moonbeam,
I don't usually wear gloves but when it comes time to thinning out a six foot patch of prickly's gloves do reduce the amount of blood I loose :lol:

Hee Hee! I said I was just kidding...

:hiding:

I still haven't found a pair of gloves that the pokey's can't get through. Mostly the O. Micro. things. When I have to deal with them, I normally wear two pairs of cheap ones, then just through them away when I'm done. Glochids...UGH!!!

The hubby got me a fancy pair for my birthday, I'll have to try them out next weekend.
