A girl was the cause of this mans fate

Way back when they did go out on a first date

They wed but alas the marriage did end

Papers were filed and in the mail she did send

She took the house, she took other things

She kept all she got including the rings

She left him a tractor and the suit that he wore

On their wedding day then showed him the door

But as you can see by the grin on his face

Seat time can help the future embrace

And the next he dates he will bring the tractor to 

And watch her reaction before he again says "I do"

A prize to the first member who can create a short story incorporating a blind man, a wedding, and a kid's pedal tractor.


      Today was Bob’s wedding day and he was very happy.  His bride to be was a beautiful young woman named Wendy whom he had fallen in love with when he was seventeen while they were still in high school.  After Bob graduated from high school at eighteen Bob went to work at his father’s John Deere lawn and garden tractor dealership repairing and selling lawn tractors and equipment.  He enjoyed his job very much and looked forward to the day that he could ask for Wendy’s hand in marriage so they could spend the rest of their life together. 

      After two years Bob had saved enough money to purchase a small older home that had been listed for sale for about a year as the owner, an older gentleman in his late seventies had passed away.  There was a small tool shed out back that Bob had seen when he toured the place and Bob had a quick look inside, saw a rake, shovel, hoe and other assorted garden tools in the dimly lit building and decided that when he could afford it he would either expand or replace the shed with a larger building to accommodate his garden tractor and a few attachments.  Once Bob had finalized the house deal and moved in he asked Wendy to marry him and she said yes but on one condition – Bob had to ride her father’s old pedal tractor down the aisle at the wedding as a tribute to him as her father had passed away several years earlier.   Bob agreed and they set a wedding date for the following spring – Wendy chose April 3 as she said it was her father’s birthday.

      Sadly that winter there was a terrible blizzard and Bob was trying to clear snow from his driveway during the height of the storm while the wind caused the snow to swirl around resulting in very poor visibility.  Bob was shoveling the snow that had accumulated at the end of the driveway and because of the wind howling did not hear the snow plow coming down the street and was struck on the side of the head with the wing of the plow.  Bob fell to the ground unconscious as the plow driver stopped and after giving first aid called for an ambulance and the police.  The ambulance arrived and took Bob to the hospital where he was placed in intensive care and remained unconscious for three days.  Wendy had arrived at the hospital as soon as she could after she was notified of his accident and remained by his side during the three days in a chair where she sometimes slept while holding his hand and talking softly to him telling him how much she loved him.   On the fourth day at 9:03 am Bob woke up and opened his eyes to the sound of her voice and stared at the direction it was coming from but sadly he could not see her – Bob was blind. 

      Bob spent the next few weeks in hospital where specialists ran tests to see if his sight could be restored but was told that he would never see again.  Bob recovered enough to go home with the care of a house keeper and between the house keeper and Wendy Bob learned to cope in a sightless world.  It was hard at first but Bob was determined to get well and work again as well as marry Wendy on the chosen date.  He knew it would be a challenge but he was up to the task and soon began spending a few hours each week at the dealership selling tractors and attachments as well as doing some simple repair jobs – Wendy would drive him to work and then sit by his side explaining where the tools were and helping him as best she could then taking him home again.  She was determined to stick by Bob and remembering the promise he had made to her about riding the pedal tractor down the aisle she had the pedal tractor brought over to Bob’s house and helped him practice riding it around the living room.  At first it was difficult as Bob continually bumped into furniture, knocked over the lamp that stood in the room and sometimes even upset the tractor but perseverance paid off and by March Bob was an accomplished living room driver and could maneuver his way around without hitting objects.  Since the ride down the church aisle would be straight Bob felt he could accomplish the task with ease and dreamed of the day he and Wendy would be man and wife.

          Finally the big day arrived and Bob was up early getting ready – he showered, shaved and dressed himself – he had really come a long way since that cold winters day when he lost his sight.  Since Bob could not see he felt it would not be bad luck for Wendy to pick him up and take him to the church so at 9:00 am she arrived and Bob and her loaded the peddle tractor into the back of her minivan and  headed off to the church.  Once there Bob waited for his best man to arrive while Wendy changed into her wedding dress with the help of her bride’s maid.  Since it was a small wedding scheduled to start at 11:00 am Bob and his best man waited until the guests had all arrived before they placed the pedal tractor in position at the entrance way to the aisle.  Wendy, her bride’s maid and the minister entered from the vestibule and stood at the altar with smiles on their faces as they watched Bob take his seat upon the pedal car to begin his journey down the aisle to where his future bride awaited.  Unfortunately what happened next was an unplanned accident as Bob and Wendy had forgot to factor in the fact that the floor in Bob’s house was level whereas the aisle in the church was not.  Bob started off smoothly enough with Wendy calling his name to give him a reference point to aim the peddle tractor towards but started to pick up speed.  Next Bob’s feet slipped off the pedals effectively negating any braking ability he may have had and his speed increased dramatically.  Unfortunately the pedal tractor’s front wheel was not designed for a high speed ride and it quickly developed a wobble that caused the peddle tractor to veer to the right resulting in Bob crashing head on into one of the church pews and for the second time in his life Bob was rendered unconscious and rushed to the hospital.

         After twenty six hours Bob awoke to find his bride to be again by his side holding his hand and talking softly to him telling him how much she loved him and how sorry she was that she had insisted that Bob ride the pedal tractor down the aisle.  Bob opened his eyes and turned his head to stare directly at her face where she was talking softly to him and said “ Wendy dear, I can see again.  Please call the minister up and get him over here as soon as he can so he can marry us right now.” 

                The morals of this story are that sometimes it takes a snow storm to make us blind so that we can really see how much someone loves us and always check the front end before you take off on the journey of wedded bliss – there may be a problem that is not visible until things start to go by really fast.
