Rural Traffic Jam

One of the things I love about living in the rural Midwest is lack of traffic even at the busiest times of day. But last Sunday, a bunch of local farmers found a way to have a traffic jam when one of their convoy broke down.

It was a Ford of course that was holding up progress.

They fretted over that thing at least half and hour.

Best book title ever: Love, Sex, and Tractors
Cover has a farmer hugging his tractor.

We do love our tractors. Maybe a little too much.

It was too perfect to pass up. I was driving by and saw them and had to stop and shoot it. They were oblivious to me. I suppose they were going to a parade or something.

Fabulous! May I snag this for my desktop? It makes me giggle so...

Sure, anytime. Any of my photos are your doll face.

Wow. I needed that.

On another note, the tractors are so brightly-colored, they look like toys.

In the midwest I've found vintage tractors are like vintage cars. Ther was an age where people really appreciated these useful beasts. I have a 1948 Ford tractor like the very last one in line. It still sees regular use on my farm. Not near as pretty as these but very useful. On Labor Day weekend, I belong to a tractor club that hosts a gathering and competition for all this early rolling iron. Tractor parades every day and every competition you can think of from pulling to slow tractor races.
