As some of you may know Wednesday is sort of an unofficial day off for me and my wife.

Well today started out with a much needed rain shower, So We loaded up 2 trailer loads of trash and took them to a spot we have for burning such things, So far great start on the day. Well it was time to take care of some banking so we go to the bank up town that we have been using for the last 25 years,

I made a deposit to cover some bills, My wife steps up to cash a check and the gal says I don't know you and the bank manager isn't here at this moment the teller was new and a bit nervous it seems .... So this prompts a trip to the next town to cash the check.

On the way we stop to see an old friend that has been working on an Empire tractor, They are somewhat rare and were made out of old army jeeps, this one has a generator out of a surplus airplane that was used for welding..
All in all a pretty relaxing day.

That's a nice Empire.  You don't see many of them.  Thanks for sharing!
