Looks like this has slowed down so here goes....#259 Although you don't want to admit it....Christmas shopping puts a very uneasy feeling in your stomach because it is depleting your tractor fund alot faster than expected!

But i got an addiction... not to any drugs or anything. But something that burns more time and money. It is called Garden tractors. And I have some ways to tell if u got the bug. And be sure to add ur own.

1. every time u see a gt u get all excited
2. if ur wife said it is either her or the tractors and u pick the tractors
3. u start caring 100 dollar bills around with u. Just in case
4. u spend more than 2 hours a day on Gttalk
5. u will do anything for free as long as u can take ur tractor.

anything else guys


6. You park the wife's $45,000.00 car outside so you can put your $400.00 garden tractor in the garage
