This weekend we had some rough weather in our area. We were not effected but the county beside us was. My wife works for an insurance company so she was called in Sunday and has been putting in 10 hour days since then. She just got the news that she may possibly have to work through Easter. She is not complaining about it but as we all know working through a holiday suxs. She has had trouble sleeping the last few nights even though she is exhuasted, just too much on the brain. When she got home we ate supper then tool the kids outside to play. I had intended to disc the garden anyway so I gave her the keys to the tractor. She almost fell out right there! We hooked up the disc and i gave her a quick lessen. She took off while I played with the kids. I grabbed the video camera to get some "action" footage for all yall. She worked until dark. She was just as happy as she could be when she finally got off the tractor. She came and sat on the deck and had a cup of coffe with me and she was a different person than when she came in from work. :blush2: The most amazing thing did not happen until this morning, she asked if I would save her some tractor work for when she got home!

Anyway enjoy the vids.

There is something real relaxing about the time spent working the land. Glad you wife enjoyed her therapy! Thanks for the videos.

It is always great to see shared family time. In the day and age of nothing but dirty laundry in the media, It is very refreshing to see a family working together:thumbs:. Hard work is the best stress relief,seat time is a plus too. Thanks for the video, Shawn

Thanks for the vids coldone! Great therapy indeed! Looks like the discs make the tractor a little light in the front when lifted, but it's doing a great job in the dirt! Congrats on the new addict LOL!

Nothing sexier than a woman who likes driving a tractor. That is awesome.

Yes it is light, but I can do wheelies now :D. I am going to load the front tires and see what that does, when I get the time. I would like to have some suit case weights on the front but I am cheap.
