#284 When your wife is gone, you use her dishwasher for a parts cleaner.

I'll agree with Troy that is a good one! I've not thought of that either.yahoo.gif




Oh, oh, oh Greg I've gotta couple! Man, narrowing this list to the top 10 would be tough.

Here's a couple:

#304: If you use your tractor and dump cart to take out the trash, get the Sunday paper or "walk" the dog.
#305: If your child's first word is Kohler, Onan or Briggs.
#306: If you have turf tire tracks in your dining room carpet.
#307: If you offer to restore the neighbor’s LGT for nothin'.
#308: If you give old rear rims as flower pots or used valve wind chimes as gifts.
#309: If you use GPS to mow your lawn.
#310: If the stereo on your mower tractor is better than the one in your truck.
#311: If you have a stack of new LGT tires next to your recliner because you like the smell.
#312: If you've ever given your wife a pair of ear rings you made from that pile of used spark plugs.
#313: If you start signing your checks with your GTtalk user name.
#314: If you endlessly try tire combinations until you find the one that makes your tractor look cool.
#315: If your wife waves a checkered flag when you finish mowing the lawn.
#316: If, in the shop/garage, you have a revolving display platform with focused spotlights for your favorite tractor.
#317: If the UPS or FedEx driver has ever had dinner at your home more than five times.
#318: If your shop/garage floor is a patchwork color of all the major LGT brands.
#319: If you've ever eaten cereal out of an Onan oil pan or used 1/4" fuel line as a straw.
#320: If you have more than two cup holders on your tractors.
#321: If you have to take your used mower blades to the scrap yard by the pickup truck load.
#322: If you've ever heated your lunch in your tractor's engine compartment.

Don't tell me you haven't tried #322 before. fed.gif
