You are bugging me!!!In a nutshell, you know Hubby is not working at a paying job, has had four surgeries within four months, and is still having problems. AND, you also know I have said there are certain terms or phrases we use to begin a tall tale...and one is WELL, LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING!
Well, let me tell you something...I am working (since someone has to) and call to check on poor Hubby since he is so sickly. No answer, well, you know what I thought. Don't panic, call his cell phone. Hubby answers, I inquire politely about his health. He's feeling better and is out on the tractor.
Then he tells me he's kinda stuck...in the edge of the pond. I say, okay, I have lived with this man long enough to not ask questions. I said, wait til I get home and I will help. Nope, he says, I am jacking it up with rocks and I can get it out. I let him try and I continue to work.
Phone call twenty minutes later, Uh, I need a tow truck...
I am in the pond.
You're kidding me, right?
So call a tow truck. Don't call me! Is it under water?
The deep end?
Is the engine under water???
Then call a tow truck!!!!!!!!!!
This the very tractor I dropped the insurance on because it was paid for!!! I wait and get no call. I call again and ask if the tow truck is there and is the tractor out? We're working on it, he calmly says.
No calls again, I mean, lay an egg like that and leave me? So, I give him time to do what ever it takes to get a tractor out of a pond with a tow truck and I call again. I ask, how bad is it? He says no water in the oil. We drained that and left the plugs out. There was water in the injector thingies (my words, not his) but we drained that and the tow guy said, stay away from the tractor for a few days (no kidding!!) and it should be alright.
Okay, I'm not asking what he was doing nor how it happened. I know I will hear it all in his own time. He said, I did the stupidest thing I've ever done today...no kidding?
Hubby said, I checked the cattle, trimmed some posts, and was sitting, watching for snakes and coyotes, started the tractor and drove into the pond!!!! Here's your sign!!!!
