Farmall Bad Day

Farmall Bad Day
I learned how to drive on a Farmall A culitavtor tractor when I was about 12 years old. When I was about 14 my dad and I were cleaning corals he was running the Farmall M with the loader and I was pulling the spreader with the Farmall MD. I had to cross a brige to get to the pasture. The bridge was built out of lodge pole pine with stringers for the trucks to run on, the MD was the tricycle type so the front tires didn't have a stringer to run on, (guess you know where this is going. ) Well I'd run that route all day long, hitting the bridge, I think in about 4th gear. Getting late in the day I noticed the poles were getting pretty chewed-up in the center. So coming back in I slowed way down and as soon as the front tires hit the bridge it looked like a stick of dynamite went off under the tractor, boards and giant slivers were fling every where. they peppered my left hand, right side of my face and down my right side. the worst one was in my left index finger, it was the size of a kitchen match, it went in on top of the first joint and came out the side of my finger nail. I shut the tractor down, pee'd down one leg and wiped it back up the other and went and told dad what had happened. He took me to the house and he had to take a shower before he took me to the doctor and give my heck all the way there, said I was probably driving like a wild man. two doctors couldn't pull the sliver out one with big tweezers pulling the other pushing from the other end, until they cut 3/4 of the way down to get the pressure off. I've had a lot of broken bones cuts and bruises but nothing hurt like that! P. S. that fall dad rolled his M in the silage pit, got it to close to the bank. I didn't have the nerve to give him a bad time about driving like a wild man.
