At our local tractor show, our feature was Massey-Harris-Ferguson
We decided to take Dad's TO35

Attached is a picture of it and a Ferguson (Bell City) pull behind picker that was in the fencerow.
Also, there is a picture of the known history of the tractor.
I had a lady come up and tell me that I shouldn't have done that...she didn't come to the tractor show prepared to cry.

Good thing she didn't read it here ....hard to cry with your head turned sideways.

 

 

 

Very cute greeting for the tractor thanks for sharing.

Our tools and machines are old friends. We have memories together. Successes and frustrations. Busted knuckles and purring engines. Most people don't understand the relationship with tools. It always boils down to what our fathers taught us: take care of them and they will take care of you. Good Luck, Rick
