Home Hazards


My husband loves doing noisy things.  Like riding my motorcycle, Doing yard work, Watching my team, Working on the house, Going to the range.  I already have some hearing loss.  I’m always reminding him—

—She’s always reminding me to wear hearing protection.  Wear hearing protection.  When I was active duty, I worked in some really noisy places.  And it can be pretty noisy here too just doing the things we love to do.

Feels like I’m still in the Army.  She’s like a drill sergeant.  You bet I am, better listen up!
