Funniest thing that happened to you

Postby HAY MAKER » Thu Aug 11, 2005 8:31 am

I was reading a post below about a hog running out of a dead cow carcass,reminded me of the time we had thirteen inches of snow and a hard winter in Wilson county. Cattle a round here are'nt used to that kinda weather and I had an old cow die,Im down there looking her over one morning after running all the buzzards and varmints off I had my back turned to her and was wondering where to drag her,all of a sudden a big black buzzard flys outta her behind,scairt the HELL outta me :shock: ...............good luck

I don't think this is the funniest thing that has happened to me, but it was kinda about the cows and was funny.

To afford to do the cow thing, I have to work in town. A couple of years back we couldn't afford our own land and had to lease some corrals for the bulls. The corrals were on the way to and from work, so we'd stop on our way to feed. I was already dressed for work when we fed. I had a skirt on and high heels, it was a site. I wonder if I'm the only one to feed in high heels, anyway. I decided to spoil myself one day and went to get my nails done at lunch. When I the lady was doing her thing, she come in close real close to me and looked around to make sure no one could hear her. Then real quite like she told me that I had Marijiuana under my nails :shock: :shock: . I'm a good girl :roll: , there is no way that was under my nails. It was alfafa. :D I busted up laughing. I thought it was funny anyway.

A woman who bought a pony from a neighbour of ours was taking the horse through the border. The border people (your side) saw alfalfa on her jacket, and ripped the truck, trailer and everything in it apart while making her stand outside in minus 20 weather for over three hours.

Gotta watch those alfalfa dealers....
Always drive the truck so you don't have to get out and open the gate.

Along the alfalfa lines, I was just readin this to hubby.

He said when he was a kid a man in town had a few horses and hauled alfalfa hay to make "extra" money. One day he stopped with his truck and flatbed trailer loaded down with hay at the lil local mom n pop store...when the K-9 unit of the sheriff's department pulled up, at which time the dog in the backseat went nuts barking. Come to find out..he wasn't haulin hay...it was bales of marajiuana (sp).....

This isn't really that funny, but it happened to me last night. I locked my keys in my pick-up at the grocery store. This wasn't your typical grocery store...its on the south side and has about 348% minority customers....well anyway here is this little white boy standing out there at night being stared at while I waited for POP-A-LOCK to come undo my pickup. Some hispanics pulled up beside me and some guy bailed out and starting puking in the spot next to my pick-up....i just sorta slipped around on the other side and thought good lord. It made me so mad cause i had two sets of keys and both of them were locked inside. Anyway they got it unlocked and I got home, but sure made me uncomfortable. Big City livin, not everyone is your friend here.......

Find a good hiding spot under your pickup and tie a key on with a plastic tie. Worst you'll have to do is slide underneath it and cut the tie with your pocket knife.

ok this is prolly ONE of the most embarassin moments, (there's many lol)

My best friend from Idaho came down to take the weeklong A-I course with me in college station. He dont ever lock his truck but I told him since it was a big town he should. So the second day or so he locked his truck and then we went out at lunch to go git somethin to eat, uh oh...keys hangin in the ignition and the doors were locked. Course he said it was my fault..."ya said lock it, ya didnt tell me to take the keys out"
there was NO spare set....so he says..."I think I can jimmy the slidin back glass"....he got it open without much trouble. Had a big huge tool box in the bed of his truck right up under the winder. Then he says, "since this is yer fault, I nominate you to shimmy thru the winder" He made me go head first...so there I be shimmyin...n all them guys from class all standin around pointin n snickerin. Right along with him. But by golly I got to the door lock switch n got it open!!!! Kept right on crawlin n sat down in my seat.

Hey Tibbs I bet most of those guys hanging around that store could have unlocked your truck faster then POP A LOCK. :o :kid: :help:
