This is the only picture I have. I know I don't qualify, since I only have this one picture attached, but I'm not looking to win, or even compete. With Christmas just around the corner, I guess I just needed to share a little bit of Mom's dream with all of you, and to find a little comfort for the season also.


JDE
I would love to see you enter. If you could add another pick of the Patio JD with a ribbon on it you would be good to go.

Guy's,
I'll see what I can do, as far as getting another picture. My nephew (the oldest grand child) ended up getting Mom's patio tractor through the will, and since I haven't seen it in a while, I'm not sure what kind of shape it's in. I appreciate all the kind words and encouragement, but I really don't know if I'll get another picture or not. The picture that I submitted, was taken with an old camera, and was scanned at work for my computer back ground, so adjusting the size to make it bigger, is not going to work. I thought about trying to re-shoot the picture with my own tractors, but the sleigh was sold at Dad's sale, and is long gone, I don't have any patio tractors to represent Rudolph, and it just wouldn't be right to try and recreate that special memory.

As I stated before, I wasn't entering to win, or to really even compete. I was just trying to help out with filling the void for nominations. Thanks again for the kind words!

Well, I found another picture, and hopefully you'll be able to enlarge this one. At least now there are two. Thanks again for the encouragement.

Yep, great to see a bigger pic. Kate needs as large a pic format as possible for whoever wins.

I ended up taking a digital picture of the original picture (2nd picture) and since it seemed to work out for enlargement, I'll try and do the same with the 1st picture, and re-edit it so it can be enlarged as well.
