Farm Show

We had a good time at the National Farm Machinery Show again this year. Weather was fairly mild and we enjoyed visiting with friends and seeing the latest and greatest in farm equipment. Probably the most notable item I saw were old sewing machines that someone had converted into toy tractors. They were selling for about $150 so I certainly didn't buy one but they were interesting. They also had a child's pedal combine complete with header trailor but I didn't get a picture of that one. It was quite expensive too. We also saw a slide show of tractor tragedies put on by Opti-Crop that was facinating and drawing quite a crowd. It was a compilation of their "picture of the month" from several years. It can be found online at We also attend the tractor pulls but they were pretty calm. Good ole green won most of the classes. We only saw one broken crank shaft and one blown engine that started a small fire but it was out in a few minutes. Other than that it was pretty uneventful.
