    Since I'm I can't really place the skunk the story in my favorite things catagory. I will have to go with the bowling ball through the garage wall story as my favorite.

    Since we seem to be getting a little off track I thought I would share an incident my brother in laws parents had to deal with. First off they use to own a john deere dealer ship. Secondly they had several of some of the larger model Deeres sitting on the lot. Thirdly they USE to leave the keys in them. As you probably know if you have a deere the keys will probably fit everybody elses deere. Anyways my brother-in-law got woke up early one morning asking him to come get his tractor. You can imagine his amazement at 3 in the morning when he found not 1 but 2 of his tractors had been used in an attempt to destroy an ATM. Well the ATM was knocked of its foundation but everything was still in tact. It's not a mower story but I thought it was worth telling.

    Fascinating! How did the tractors fare? Lots of damage? Hardly a scratch?

    There was nothing wrong with either one. One of them had a FEL and I think the other was a very large 4 wheel drive.

    I have another turtle story, but this one doesn't have a nice ending. I hit a box turtle with my finish mower. It cut it right in half. Poor thing was still alive and trying to crawl off with it's 2 front feet while it's back half was just laying there. Gross. I ran up to the garage and grabbed my crowbar and clobbered it to put it out of it's misery. Unfortunately for me, blood and guts squirted all over me, including my face! I felt worse about the poor turtle than the mess on my face though [img]/w3tcompact/icons/sad.gif[/img].

    This is what happens when you hit a stump at full speed wile mowing.....



    My wife hit it last year. We have mowed over that place a ton of times, just one time, the stump jumped up.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img] After about $100, and a big hammer, I got it all fixed.

    I have two mowing stories. Both times I was mowing hay with a 9' New Holland Discbine on a JD 4020.

    The farm had a old Ford 8N. Somewhere along the line the left tire went flat and was replaced with a larger tire and rim. Wellll... I was mowing along in fifth gear when I hear this horrible banging. I stop the PTO and back up. Sure enough in 4' of grass is the old 8N tire. The discbine cut through the tire and steel rim completely.

    The second incident was a deer. I do not think it was alive when I hit it but will never know for sure. I was mowing along and heard this awful clunking noise. Thought it was a woodchuck mound. Next pass there was a semi flattened mangled dear carcass in the hay windrow.

    Not a mowing story but later that year I baled up a dead skunk.
