    just wondering if any of you for fun put a mask on or anything around 10/31...assuming of course good visibility has to be maintained for safety reasons...it may be a bit hokey but I get a kick out of Halloween and was thinkng about it...but as ugly as some of you are, putting a mask on would reduce the fright factor instead of enhancing it!!....lol

    It would be kind of hot mowing with a pumpkin on your head all day:pumpkin:
    Actually Halloween isn't celebrated down this way,no tricks or treats here.

    the idea sounds fun but remember some people attach great significance to HALLOWEEN as a religous day.

    and what you make of it depends on what side of Christianity you identify.

    of course I am generally refering to the extreme sides of the issue.

    most people would probably get a kick ot of seeing guys riding ZTRs with their capes blowing in the breeze.

    post pics if you do it....

    I wear a big gorilla suit while mowing :eek: .............

    Just kidding......I will be wearing normal work attire.
    Pants, company sweatshirt and probably five layers underneath because of the cool temps :(

    I think that if the temp's are cool enough, I'll let the guys try that out. It could be fun.

    i think it would be pretty funny. if i saw a guy mowing a lawn on a rider all dressed up i would laugh my ***** off. Maybe dress up as superman with a cape on. when your mowing the cape could be flapping in the wind like your flying. just watch out for the muffer and other moving parts.

    All the full time guys can dress up as day laborers from South o the border.

    The Superman costume on a rider would be histerical.

    I usually buy lunch for the guys that dress up. Only a few guys do it, had the gorilla suit, prisoner, and I think a pirate with a few other cheesy ones..
