Spreadin the Bull

My family did not live on a farm but both my Mother and Father were raised on a farm. This happened 9 years ago and is amusing. Dad had the idea of spreading manure on his garden to help the growing process. He had a old manure spreader and had made arrangements with a neighbor farmer to 'get a load of manure'. This location was app. 1 mile from our house. He took the 285 M/F and the manure spreader down to the farm for a load of 'stuff'. He went and picked up the manure. Something happened on the return trip. The manure spreader was the type where the feeder chains to the rear augers were not operated by the tractor PTO but by the wheels rotating on the spreader. You guessed it. Somehow they were engaged and Dad did not know it. He headed home, right past all our neighbors leaving a nice layer of manure on the blacktop. When he realized what was going on he had 'spread' almost the entire load, right past the neighbors who were having a graduation party at the time. I laugh about it now but back then it was alot of 'bull' that had to be loaded back up on the spreader. Both my parents are gone now but memories like this will keep them forever with me.
