If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Nothing like a nice snooze in the shade on a hot day.

It's good to have your prioritys straight...
I often fall asleep sitting on tractors thinking of what I will fix on them next lol. (ps: falling asleep sitting up is easy, it's waking up before you land that takes skill lol)

I've fallen asleep under a car more than once...

I was in the home stretch of finishing my first turbo engine build. Started at 8am Saturday worked on it till the wee hours of Sunday morning. All alone. Put the motor in redid the wiring harness installed the transmission clutch hook up linkages tunes the map sensor signal block last step was to put the gas tank back in with the modified fuel canister and pumo. Had the tank on my chest. Scooted under car.

Woke up hours later when dad dragged me out from under the car by ankles screaming his head off. He thought I was dead. Just sleeping.

Just be careful where you fall asleep at.  A good friend of mine some years back when we worked for an Ag-Chem company, was driving a tender truck for a big spray rig.  As it takes about 45 min. for the sprayer to empty its tank, Rod decided to take a nap under his truck in the grass as it was hotter than blazes in the cab.  Woke up when the sprayer pulled up and started the refill job all the while picking ticks off himself.  When the sprayer left the last thing the sprayer operator saw was Rod standing along side his truck in his shorts still picking ticks off himself.  Last time he fell asleep under a truck in the tall grass for sure.  Once the story got out we all had fun picking ticks off Rod when ever we saw him.

Sometimes it takes a child or an innocent animal to point out to us that what we think is important is really just a creation of our own making. The truly important things such as watching a child play, a kitten chase a bug, or the wind blowing through a stand of Black Eyed Susan's, often get lost in the shuffle. As we get older and realize these things, we wish we had more time to do them. ;)

Sleeping under a truck----- harvest of /73, hotter than the hubs of hell, I was hauling grain from the combine with Ol' Kalija, the /53 Ford 3 ton. I lay down in the stubble under the shady side of the truck and promptly fell asleep. Combine pulled up to dump, My Olde Deere a tad irate because I was supposed to have been watching and come to him to dump on the fly.  Can you guess? I stood up quick, cracked my head on the frame of the truck and was out for the count! Woke up about ten minutes later pouring blood, (nothing like a scalp wound to bleed), pulled my cap down tight over the cut, and hauled the load into the yard. MOD completely forgot about being mad-- he'd had time to cool off while I was coming to, lol.
