old buzzard did his thing and brought rain to our Florida Flywheelers show.He showed uo enough before the last parade of the show that it stopped raining so we could have our parade.lol. We talked and found out we both have lived in Cincinnati and have worked for the same co at different times. I got to take him for a ride on 1 of my carts that I pull with a GT through the mud from the rain. That was fun.I followed my grandson on as GT pulling a cart with his wife a 2 of my great-grandchildern through the parade.Sorry I was having to much fun to take pictures.

That is one of the things that I like best about attending tractor shows.

My wife and I have made a lot of new friends and have met several of the members from here at GT Talk at some of our local shows.

Like Al said, it was a great visit. :thumbs:


That show is HUGE, and it would take a couple of days and something to ride on the see it all.


The HMS Rainmaker lived up to her name, as when we got to about 3 miles from the show grounds, the sky opened up and the deluge began :D


It did eventually stop, and we made our way to where Al said that he was setup.  When we got there, Al was nowhere to be found, but his neighbor said that he was over getting ready to drive in the parade.


Fortunately that parade was very close to Al's spot so when it began I went over to watch it.


I had a good description of him, and knew that he was driving his Sears, so I waited patiently until he showed up.


Here he is on the Sears:

You can see just what the Rainmaker brought with her in the ditch behind him :D :D :D
I took a few more pics of some of the more interesting tractors.  I really liked the hit and miss powered GT:
