Goosed.
« on: August 13, 2016, 08:38:39 PM »
This morning I was just headed out the door to go spraying when the phone rang.  Was the neighbor lady from 2 miles East and she were some excited.  Seems there was a fire going outta control in their yard and headed for the new shop.  I'm coming I yelled and ran out screaming at the boys as I went.  Fired up the old KW and started backing outta the yard while holding the air brakes controller until it built up enough air so i didn't need too.  Took off down the road and found out right away my governor works well in all the gears I hit.  Pulled into their yard and Todd

came flying at the truck to attack.  Stupid bird. :confused:  I pulled to a stop as close the fire as possible and the boys had the hose from the trailer pump hooked to the truck and were adding the fire nozzle to the discharge hose too.   :yoyo:  One pull on the rope got 2,500 gallons of water headed in the right direction to slow the fire.  That little blaze was no match for our water and the young couple were happier than pigs in pooh that we came.  After watering down everything so he could control his burn for the day we went to see what the [L] was with Todd.  Crazy bird likes to chaw on ya while you stare in wonder.

Todd's mouth could get him in trouble :eyebrownod:
What do YOU use use a pump truck for beside putting out the occasional neighbors fire with it?
By the sounds of it, the boys knew exactly what to do,  so maybe the neighbors need to move their burn pit  :alscalls:

Pat, I have good neighbors and I just try to keep up.  [L] we even help folks we don't like so as to have someone around to pick on. :innocentwhistle:

I have to say that I was relieved when I saw the picture of the goose.  Thanks for helping put out the fire.  How many hats do you wear:  fireman, crop sprayer, baler, hunter, mechanic, wife harasser, and many more.

Plumber and I don't do house calls.  I don't harass the wife, I just keep her on her toes, a shorter or longer rope would be bad. :innocentwhistle:

  I told you guys about Todd a couple years ago and felt the need to update you after I got a phone call today. He/she spent the first winter in the hen house with the other fowl and last fall he took off with some wild geese. We were all afraid we wouldn't see it again but Linaya called just now to report that Todd came back. Cool as [L] to me. :yoyo:
