As you may have seen on Facebook--why you don't follow me there is anyone's guess! That is where you get up-to-the-moment updates, you know-- Tommy has a new toy, a John Deere tractor.
He has been eagerly awaiting this thing for months now!
As you can see it has a bucket plus a fork lift attachment.
In the time Tom receive instructions on its use from the guy who sold it to him--gosh, I don't recall his name...sorry, Mr. John Deere salesman guy!-- three delivery trucks came, so Tom got practice using the forklift straight away!
I wondered that he thought he needed the forklift. He does have a very small yet maneuverable one up at the pole-barn. He said in winter the little one cannot make it down the road to the bottom driveway and then back up again with a heavy load. The poor little guy will only be for indoor use now and this big one will take care of the rough stuff.
Well, it was bright and shiny, brand-spankin' new, but it wasn't going to stay that way for long.
All too soon Tom got it dirty. He picked up a pile of weeds...very tall over five foot weeds, mind you...
And filled up a hole...the hole I dug up because I needed soil in what will soon be the new peony garden.
Of course, I don't leave tracks that huge!
Oh, but it is a messy thing to have Tommy's new toy. Yes, he can knock down weeds with one fell swoop, but oh, the ruts it'll make in the lawn! I don't want to think!
