Puttin on a show for the kid

Ok guys keep in mind I was greener than I am now, but still very green. My Brother-in-law won a trip nearly 20 years ago so the wife and I stayed with the kids at their place for a week. He had a 10 acre field that he asked me to disk. Telling me to watch out for the fence while I was turning. 13 year old nephew came out and watched. Said he usually helps his Dad disk the fields. Well let me tell you that the first pass was good, second pass took out the corner post and several feet of wire (50-100'). Looked over at the nephew and he was crying he was laughing so hard. Me about 25 at the time...HOLD on: now we take to fixing the fence and he points out a cow pie with a bees coming out of it. Well let me tell you when I bent down to look my hair hit that damned electric fence and you should have heard the popping sounds like and automatic rifle..again he cried laughing. Well we made the best of that day and fixed the fence. Next day I got on the JD riding mower to cut the yard, being lazy I just pushed the nose up to the edge of the pool deck to get close, well I stopped at the edge then my foot came off the clutch and now I am laying flat out over the seat with my nose hitting the floor joists under the deck. Some how managed to get my foot on the clutch to stop but couldn't get my hand on the shifter or key and no room to get off. Thank God I didn't go through the pool..the kid, yep, had to come under and shift it into reverse for me,then slowly easing off the clutch I backed out with my bloody nose. Yep, kid was crying again he was laughing so hard. He must have thought 'what a dumb uncle of mine' hahaha..Well that is just a taste of what I have done but these were the funniest consecutive days I had, so the nephew thinks. We get telling this story now after 20 or so years and the kid still tears up.. hahaha Eric
