We have yellow star thistle here - nasty, invasive plant which produces YUGE star 
shaped prickers that will shred you a new a-hole. At my first falconry field meet, the 
folks who took us hunting with them warned us about them. Moral of story: 

NEVER BUY CHEAP CHAPS!

Spanking of bare feet... once when I was real little - maybe about four - I was hanging around my house

steps onto that unassuming patch then froze when I felt that the bottoms of my little feet were totally
covered in the prickly little bastards. I just started wailing. I couldn't move. An nice old gent who lived 
nearby came to my rescue. He picked me up and put me on his knee and brushed all the stickers off my 
trotters. And I can't say I lived happily ever after but I lived. Nasty critters, those stickers. Dumb story
that I will never forget. And what a ballbaby!




Ha, yeah, we had prickles. all over our lawn in summer. Sounds kind of similar. When you got bored at school you could spend some time digging them out with the point of your compass. Worst thing in our garden though was when the magpies were nesting and they'd attack you.

My feet were hard as nails back then. Bare foot was the only way to go. Even my first long-distance runs were all done barefoot till Mum took a trip to Australia and brought back some running shoes. It is amazing what feet can withstand if you give them the chance to toughen up. Bummer about your bike though.
 
lol. Yep. Had to be tough. I never rode barefoot though. lol 
I just hammered it out and kept ripping...
