Tractors on Parade

There was a tractor ride through K-Town yesterday.
A tractor ride is much like a bicycle ride, only less work and a lot like a motorcyle ride, only slower.
And these folks don't drink as much beer.

I like these too.  Growing up, this is the tractor we owned, a John Deere 60.  We'd drag fallen trees from the woods with it and split them with a log splitter my dad fashioned from a dump truck cylinder plugged into the hydraulic disconnects on the rear of the tractor.  That's how we heated the house.

There's more to tell you about the tractor, but I'll bore you in person with those details some fine day.

I'm still thinking about it.

Read this out loud and remenisce with me as you gently advance the clutch lever: plub bub bub bub bub PLUB PLUB bub bub Plub bub bub bub PLUB PLUB bub plub bub bub bub bub bub bub bub bub plup Plub PLUB PULLUB PUULLUB PUULLUB PUULLUB PLUB PLUB Plub Plub plub plub plub plub plub plub plub

(manage a deep hollow sound, flap your lips and cheeks a little, and don't try to read it too fast, or it won't be authentic enough)

Carry on.
