Funny things happen. It was mowing day a couple weeks ago; Sharn Jean was gone, so before I climbed on the JD to start mowing, I grabbed one of the telephones and put in in my pocket, just in case. About an hour or so later, I was merrily going about my mowing, when She came out the back door, waving at me. I stopped, and she leaned over and whispered in my ear, asking if I had the phone. I said, "yeah, just in case you called from town." She says "Its on, so please turn it off". I took it out of my pocket, turned it off and gave it to her. She returned to the house.
Now a little back ground. She is involved in a business endeavor that every so often requires a conference call with some other folks all over the country. Unbeknownst to me, she came home while I was mowing and proceeded to make her conference call. Sometime during the middle of the call, I inadvertently turned the phone on, and the participants were greeted with the sound of music created by a 14 horse Kawasaki John Deer engine, at full power, in the process of mowing my lawn. Needless to say, she was greatly embarrassed, but managed to evade responsibility or knowledge, at least up to this point. I, however, was not so lucky. My contrition knows no bounds, and as of this date, me and my John Deere remain anonymous. Let's hope it stays that way.
