Okay, I’ll admit that I just LOVE “Red Rides,” both large and small–old and new!!!




. . . and I’m keeping my head covered.  (More on that later–perhaps!)

My boys (two sons and my dear husband) would be the last ones in the world to call themselves “green.”  But, they’ve just proved they’re as green as can be by recycling and reusing a 53-year-old tractor.  Here they are unloading their wonderful “find” several months ago.  After much work, sweat, and loving toil, including sand-blasting, repainting, and mechanical repairs, they turned this 1955 Ford 960 Workmaster into a real beauty.

This shiny “new,” recycled Ford tractor is a favorite of the children who come to visit our farm, too!
