You know youre addicted when you leave your curtains open at night so you GT can watchTV with you before bedtime.
Youre beyond help when you let your GT in the livingroom to watch the game with ye.
Youre oficially insane when you pour a beer in your GTs gas tank after a hard days work.
Everybody hides when you avoid looking at other GT so yours dont get jealous.

wheel.jpg I found myself putting a bid on CL last night at 2:00 am (picking it up noon Monday). My wife says I pay more attention to GT's than her.
I have a 30 x 40 shed so full of GT's my car sits out. I have enough projects going for 3 lifetimes. :firejumper: :orangecool:


I dream in lawnmower.........

I knew I was addicted when I passed a young woman mowing the lawn, scantly clad in a skimpy bikini and I found myself staring at her humongous turf tires.

Lost track of the numbering system, not sure if I'm right or not, but here are a couple more:

 

388.You paint the tractors sitting outside, all camo colors, so the neightbors don't see them.

389.Your garage attic floor is about to fall thorough due to the weight of all of the parts and tires you have.

390.You lined all of your tractors around the outside of you shed, just to help keep the walls from blowing out.

391.You have the best burglar alarm that money can buy, wired in your garage or shed, but have nothing wired in the house.

392.Airplanes are landing in your backyard, due to all of the sensor lights going off whenever a rabbit runs past your garage.

393.The town mayor changed the name of your street to "John Deere Road."

394.You need more parking facilities out behind your garage for when the guys come over to work on tractors.

395.Letters start arriving in your mailbox, made out to "Johndeereelfman."

396.You're upset because you can't find a set of bar tires for on the rear of your truck.

397.You try to mount a 20hp Kohler on your walk behind mower.

398.Your push mower has bar tread tires.

399.You mounted a front blade on the front of you push mower, just so you can do the narrow sidewalks between the house and garage.

400.The cutting edge of your front snow blade, is sharper than the blade on your pocket knife.

401.The blades on your mower deck are sharper than your wifes kitchen knives.

402.You have a pan seat cushion cover strapped to your favorite diningroom chair.

403.Your doorbell is actually the sound of you tractor running.

404.When your cell phone rings, it sounds like PA Plow Days.

405.Your Garage or Shed is in better, structurally sound, shape then the house you live in.

406.You have more toys than your three kids combined.

407.You've been waiting to find wall paper in your favorite brand of tractor, so you can remodel the bedroom.

408.You hooked a motor up to your toilet, just so it vibrates like a tractor when you flush it.

409.You changed all of the house entrance locks over to only accepting garden tractor keys.

410.You used LGT magazine to temporarily fix that broken window in the shed.

411.You have a garden tractor key with you, on your key chain, all the time.

412.It takes you two and a half hours to read this and understand all of the little quirts that make us addicts!
