Have you ever thought, “What is my most prized personal possession?”

Should you, your many friends and acquaintances compare thoughts on
this subj
ect -- it is doubtful if two of you would come up with identical
thinking, because different people put different values on the same

Some people prize material things and can become attached to any
of a variety of things, ranging from a late model sports car -- a
house filled with antiques -- a special dog -- a wardrobe of
expensive clothing -- to a prized shotgun or coin collection.

spring chores. Lawnmowers, clippers, edgers, and shovels all
have sharp edges that if not handled properly can damage
those priceless possessions.

Keep focused on Safety at work AND at home!
