The old girl may not win any tractor beauty pageants but she is smooth running and full of get up and go! Most importantly, Ole Betsy, is ours! We finally have a tractor!
Everyone knows tractors will last forever, so there was no way we were going to spend a fortune on a new one, so we have been waiting to find a good deal on a used one and ,well, Ole Betsy is pretty used!
I don't care,she is a good ole gal and I have lots of plans for her! Betsy and me,were going to be friends!
She is a little rusty,nothing bad, and has a sad eye.A new headlight will give her some sparkle!
She didn't have a seat but, on the way home, Hubby stopped and got her a brand new one!
He and The Boy are out in the shop giving her a few TLC adjustments...
and Hubby is building a hay spear for the back of her. No more rolling those huge bales of hay around! I'm getting too old for that kind of stuff!
We had to drive a long way to get Ole Betsy. One of Hubby's friends,a fellow China worker,gave us a great deal on her so it was worth the drive.He even let us use his trailer to bring her home on because ours was too narrow.
So here's to easier days in our future on Laughing Duck Farm! Welcome Ole Betsy,you've found a home!
