If our old equipment could talk this would be the common story. I really enjoyed reading this thanks for sharing Alan.

This was my Grandpa's tractor.
I used to love to go on rides through the woods and around the farm in the trailer behind it.
Now I get to drive it some... It always makes me think of Grandpa.
It used to make me a little sad, but now I smile as I remember the rides and seeing him drive it around.

Ever since i remember stepping foot on that farm, that rust bucket of a tractor has been there. (I say Rust bucket with love!) She's stuck with us through thick and thin too! Kinda sorta one of the last remaining parts of grandpa i have left. i've spent more time on that tractor with him than actually at home! We'd go to the woods, we'd go to the fields and walk for arrow heads on it, heck we'd even go to the fishing pond down the road. That tractor certainly has a place in my mind, and heart, and i'll do anything to keep it alive and kicking!
