    cursed tractor

    Went to use my garden tractor yesterday. I last used it only a few weeks ago.
    Three tires flat.
    Tire on garden trailer flat.
    Took off trailer and flat tire.
    Inflated tractor tires.
    Went to start tractor. Wouldn't start.
    Jumped battery.
    Drove up to garage and lifted with chain hoist.
    Removed flat tires.
    Took tires to town and had tubes installed. Except trailer tire, shop had to order tube.
    Came back and put tires back on.
    Tractor wouldn't start.
    Jumped battery again. Ran good.
    Put in gear. Wouldn't go.
    I said naughty things.
    Got so mad I came back and shot trailer ded.

    Some days you just shoulda stood in bed, huh?

    May your tomorrow be filled with fully inflated tires and engines that run at the mere thought of turning the key.

    Are you going to cut it into steaks and roast or just grind it all.
    I'd have it tenderized no mater which you chose..

    An acid marinade will help that trailer. LOML's aunt used to marinade steaks in coke (acid) and brown sugar overnight before grilling them--made them tough as shoe leather. Just might tenderize that trailer steak.

    That was hilarious!
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Sorry for your troubles, thanks for giving us a laugh

    I don't think you shot that trailer, I bet you just scared it real bad and it is playing dead...... cause if you had shot it dead, with your locker of guns, there would be a LOT more holes in it

    I was greasing equipment one day, dang gone grease gun wasn't working right, all that seemed to happen was I got grease on me, around the zerk but not in the zerk. So, throw it out in the barn yard, 12 gauge pump, four or five shots to the body, throw what is left in the trash and go to town to buy a new grease gun. Man I felt good!!!

    You should fill it full of machine gun holes. BRITISH machine gun holes. Because after all, a hole is a hole is a hole.

    Too easy. Where eagles dare. But my question is still unanswered. If Frank shot it, where's the evidence? How many holes were there? We really should count them. Because someday, someone may write a song:

    "Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Fusco haul..."

    Ouch!

    Thanks,
