|Running over the kids with a JD |
This is an old story, back around 1952. I was about 4 and my older brother was about 6. It was rainy weather and the ground was wet and mushy in western Kentucky near Arlington,Ky. My parents rented a farm and my mom was driving the John Deere (unknown model but with close front end) through the mush in the lot. My brother ran and jumped on the hitch and grabbed the seat to hold on to. Not an umcommon practice. About that time my mom gave it a little gas to get through and a ditch and up the other side. When the tractor hit bottom in the ditch my brother fell off and screamed. Scared the dickens out of my mother who immedeately pushed the clutch in causing the tractor to roll back down into the ditch right over my brother's back. The ground was so soft that all it did to my brother was to push him down into the mire. All was well except for the fright and the bratty boy lived another 50 some years. That is the way I remember the event.
