“That's the great thing about a tractor. You can't really hear the phone ring.”

Jeffrey Marshall "Jeff" Foxworthy (American comedian, television and radio personality and author, b1958)

TIME:  9:45 AM
PLACE:  Beginning of Labor Day Parade
SUBJECT:  Front end of a Farmall tractor

The official end of summer kicked off this morning with the annual Labor Day parade.  HH drove his Corvette along with his union local (Plumbers and Pipefitters), SD rode with him, while MB, DQ , cousin Sophia and I walked alongside it with shopping bags of candy that we threw out to the crowd.  This tractor, which is owned by a former co-worker of HH, was right behind us.  We ended up at the park, where there were rides for the kids and beer for the adults.  It was a gorgeous day…mid 70’s and sunny.  My kind of weather.

I grew up on a farm, and my Dad always used Farmalls. Great shot!
