Park mower vanishes... Ranger Keith in a quandry.
Ransom Park Muddler News
"If we can't make up a lie we'll muddle the truth!"

Ranger Keith, Head of Park Security, reported the disappearance of the park's thirty thousand pound John Deere 9200 tractor and custom shredder array. "I was mowing the area around Brown Water Springs", says Ranger Keith, "when I felted a slight bump and began to hear a crunching sound.
The bump wasn't anything unusual, but the sound reminded me of when the tarbosurger impeller flied apart last summer. Plus, it was starting to make hearing the TV difficult. I waited for a commercial, then stopped to make sure nothing was becoming seriously bent.
I climbed down and inspectimatized the turbochanger, injetshun frammis, and engine axcessories on the left side, but found nothing going badness that I could see. While walking around to the right side, I noticed something was jammed between the right front dual wheels. Upon closer inspechun, I realized it was one of those Geo Metros. I wented to the tool box at the rear of the trator for a large crowbar to pry that Metro outta there, when the whole rig started moving. I dropped the crowbar and ran for my life just in time to escape the right half of that 42 foot shredder array connectioned to the rear of the trator.
I'd had the hydrastic transmixing in seventh gear whilst mowing, so I must have left it there when I climbed out. Wish I'd of left the shredder going too... I could have tracked the crazy thing lots easier by following the shredded path of deestrutchun. What's worser, I'd just filled the fuel tanks, so it took out with 310 gallons of diesel on board. I haven't seened it since. Ain't found my crowbar, neither."
Ranger Keith warns anyone who sees the park mower not to approach it (especially if you're driving a Geo Metro). Take note of the direction it's headed and call Ranger Headquarters immediately!

to insult Director Faultus
NOTE: Rancid J. Faultus has been director of Ransom Park since 1857. During that time he has made many changes (and catastrophies) in the park. We at Ransom Park invite you to visit often and see these changes evolutionizing. We regret that the director's message is unchanged for a while now, but Director Faultus has been working on the new park exit and hasn't been in his office much of late (or early). As soon as (or soon thereafter) Director Faultus is able to wrote out a new message, I'll see that it's posted here for all to ignore.
Ranger Keith, Head of Park Security (Moped patrol), Ransom Park, Texas.
And now, a message from Director Faultus:
Recent rains have certainly branged out the trees, flowers and gasses. Grasses, too. Ranger Keith held off mowing (or work of any kind) throughout the park so we could all enjoy the wildflowers. Well, most of us. Actually, I find them to be slightly bitter.
With the threat of heavy rains on the way, however, Ranger Keith felt it was time to run the mower. After about ten hours of this, he decided it was time to back it out of the equipment shed and do some actual mowing. Which he done. Did. Which he done did. Good thing, too, because the heavy rains certainly maternalized. Along with some rather large hail. If you visited the park right after it was moweded, I'm sure you noticed the sparsafication of wild flowers. And roadsigns, culvert rails, curbs, hydrants, small wildlife, etc. (Ranger Keith is just a little sloppy with that John Deere 9200 tractor pulling his 42 foot, custom made, ten-shredder array).
This plentifulized rain should once again brang us multitudinal clumpations of flowers. If you've never visited with us before (or even not never before that), come on out and enjoy the leafing trees and thick gasses. Actuality, I meant enjoy the thick grasses. (Stay away from Ranger Headquarters like I do and you'll avoid the thick gasses).
Ranger Keith still hasn't restorationed all the damage done by his 30,000 pound turbo-charged diesel lawn mower (with the phone, stereo, TV, and air conditioned cab), so if you come out any time soon, I'd advise you to print a copy of the park map. Better still, let your printer do it. With so many of the signs down throughout Ransom Park (thanks to Ranger Keith's mower being wider than the roadways), you may end up lost. (You could also end down lost). Or you may not know where you are. Or where you're going. Or want to go. Or want to be other than. Even. Click on the Map Of Ransom Park link for a full color map from the Glob Map Company, and a picture of our Forrest Ranger in action.
As always, when visiting Ransom Park look for our Forrest Ranger, F.J. Leglock (not to be confused with our Park Ranger, Ranger Keith) and make plans to sit in on one of his very infirmitive, extrapolated lecturications. While you're cramping in the park (which means you ate the wild flowers while camping in the park), stop Forrest Ranger Leglock as he zooms by on his Polaris four-wheeler and say "how can you go so fast with the front end all bent up like that?". But don't tell him Director Faultus sent you, or he'll spit in your messkit!
So it shall be wroted, so it shall be did.
