You'd find everything from watermelons in apile of straw to dead animal carcasses. The worst thing I actually hit though is, the truckers were too lazy to walk up to the building to pee, so they'd use a 1gallon, plastic milk bottle and just throw it out the window, we'd come by w/ the bush hog, after it cooked in the sun for a few weeks and splat-what a stink!
Had to be the truck stop on Hwy 20 by I94

Another employee hit me from behind with a toro walk behind as I was turning around and my steel toe boot saved my feet .

Got 3rd degree burns on my wrists from the muffler and a busted foot but I survived and finished the work day.

Hmm, I've hit a stump, wrecked the hydraulic lift on the tractor, I didn't see the stump, it was one of those little ones.
I hit a toilet seat (don't ask)
Last week I ran over a coiled up THICK dog chain, wrapped around 2 of the 3 blades, stopped the engine right away, that was fun.
Some baby bunnies.

Mow around a few apple trees and you will have plenty of apple sauce.
Getting borred while mowing a 20 acre lot, I decided to go to the middle and mow in a circle to the right. Made around 50-60 passes with a 60" kept me entertained a little longer.
Stay away from stirofoam with a weed eater, they are everywhere in a cemetery.
Boss hit a dog chain, guy lets his dogs crap all over a lot that is next to his. He didn't want to help pay for repairs. Now Boss blows the chit all back to the guys car and home.
I never hit many things, I am sure ditch mowing would be a good time with all that may be out there.
You all keep me laughing, THANK YOU !!
The full diaper would suck !!
The school window is a very scary story.
I will keep my eyes open !!!
