Above.. the photograph was taken the day before our farm machinery auction in April 2007. On the left is the old RD4 Cat, which in its' day it was the biggest tractor on the farm. Beside it, the last tractor Dad owned, a John Deere 8870. I luved operating this tractor and I still kinda miss it.
Below.. farming done the old fashioned way when farm work day was long and hard. I've often thought that if I hadn't been spoiled with air conditioned cabs and everything automated when I was old enough to help Dad in the field, I'm sure I would have learned to cook better. Luckily Dad's passion for the newest technology allows us to work smarter!
