Our annual antique tractor drive was yesterday. It was a bright and beautiful day, although very hot and dusty due to the sun and no rain in weeks. Still, spirits were high as eighteen tractors took off, including one father and son team: Eric and Bryce on a John Deere 730, and Heston who traded off between Dad and Grandpa on a couple of John Deere propane tractors.
We had a great time enjoying fields and pastures, waving at farmers and families enjoying their Sunday, and giving each other a hard time about which is the better tractor manufacturer, of course it is Minneapolis Moline! We chatted over lunch, relaxing and “neighboring.” And then we mounted up for the dusty drive back to the trailers and a cold drink.
After all the goodbyes were said, We made a couple more trips to drive our own tractors back home, clean up, and enjoy that huge full moon ourselves. What a great way to enjoy the Sabbath Day. Many blessings were shared.
You said it!
Go, go, prairie gold!
