Attack of the Pine Tree

This isn't s tractor story, but one about my riding mower. I have a Snapper rider mower, 6 speed, 12 h. p., under mower deck, clutch, etc. (I must tell you, I have an artificial left foot, which usually doesn't give me any trouble, as I have it trained fairly good now!) So, there I am one day, riding my Snapper around the yard, cutting the grass. As I tried to cut around that pine, it reached out and grabbed the rider and just pulled the whole thing into the tree! Well, I couldn't get my foot free to push in the clutch, the gear shift was stuck in gear with forward pressure on it, the engine at near full throttle, and I couldn't get my hand free to shut it off! Finally, the engine stalled, but there I was, entwined in pine branches, unable to get out! Finally, I decided the only way to get loose was to remove my artificial leg. Now, being that I was out in the front yard with neighbors all around and a good looking dame not 30 ft. away, that became a 'ticklish situation!', since I had to remove my trousers to do that! Well, I finally did the contortionist act, got out of my artificial leg and pants, crawled out of that danged tree, got my leg out and back on, my pants pulled on, and nobody saw a thing! The tree is still there, but the grass can grow up over the top of it, I won't get near it any more! I finally had to unstick the rider by pulling it out with my pickup! A word of advice: Those machines will get ya' down and trounce ya' if yer not careful! Rusty J.
