Earlier today I was out moving/consolidating stuff with the 1886 forklift, and a young lady riding a bike stopped and asked if she could take some pictures of my tractors.
She is from China, a student here at Oberlin College, and one of her classes is in Photography.
She asked which was the oldest tractor I had so I showed here my Bolens EK7 and moved it to where she could get a good picture.
After a bit more talking and picture taking, she asked if it would be OK for her to drive it, and of course I said yes.
After she tooled around on if for a bit, she had a grin from ear to ear. She said that was the first time she had driven anything like that and that she didn't even have a license to drive car.
After the EK7, I fired up the HT20D, and turned her loose. As she was coming back I said to my self, "Self, you big dummy, why don't you get your camera and take a couple of pics of her driving so she can have those too?". So I made a quick dash to grab the camera and got two pics of her on the HT20D.
Her name is Jiayi Shou, but she said that her 'English' first name is Anastasia. She's only 20 yrs. old, no bigger than a minute, and as cute as can be. We talked for quite awhile, and I was very impressed with her. She seems to be much more mature and serious than the tytpcal 20 yr. old college girl, and can hold her own in conversation.
Anyway here the two pics I took and then emailed to her.
