  5. So much said in so few words. Coupled with your photo you said all there was to say! Bravo! I learned to drive on a tractor much like this. It WAS a time of straight and true.

  6. Yes. I think we all long for those days of straight and true. So nicely said.

  7. Yes, when farms were family affairs and not run by corporations,. We will need those small farms again, I believe.
