Dan noticed the tractor first yesterday around 5:30 when we were making dinner...of course it was running at the time so the noise was fairly significant...sure enough to accompany the tractor there was a farmer on the porch along with...TA-DA...My Sign....
George, our neighbour spent all day yesterday aboard said tractor cutting corn in the field across from our house. At some point during the day the tractor and my sign had a close encounter of the third kind...contact... well actually the tractor ran over the sign...but then who would expect to find a sign in the among the corn??? Anyway neither sign nor tractor seem to have suffered from the encounter and I am just delighted to get my sign back! It is a little bit dirty and does have a suspicious tractor tire sort of crease in it but all in all it survived its ordeal remarkably well. I do see a case of beer in George's future, courtesy of K & N.
Obviously the addle-brained little thieves just cut down the sign, transported it , oh about 20 yards and then chucked the thing into the cornfield. The corn of course was high and dense, rendering the sign invisible from the road...They must be very proud of themselves!
Anyway, Dan says we will afix the sign this time around with chain rather than tie wraps. Chain will require bolt cutters for removal, not an apparatus most people carry around in the back of their cars or pick-ups on a regular basis!
Other good news...
