Ham, I am! That’s what I’ve got to say about the following photo!
I happen to know where this tractor is parked. It’s way out on a county road and I always thought it would be fun to take a photo with it. The road is sparsely travelled but occasionally people do drive by. I had about 6.5 seconds to get up there, take a photo, then scramble down. The photo is supposed to show my current muscle development but you can’t control the sun so I’m pretty washed out. You’ll just have to take my word that my program is working and my muscle development is on the upswing.
If you look at this close up, by my foot, you can see a warning sign. It said to stay off unless you had on proper footwear. That’s why my heels are John Deere green. It was a safety issue!
My appreciation for farm equipment runs in the family! My older son had a huge collection of construction and farm vehicles when he was a little guy. We even went to visit the John Deere headquarters in Moline, Illinois when he was very young. It was a great place for a little boy to play. They had all sorts of cool, giant equipment there for the kids to climb on and explore.
My younger son wasn’t as fascinated with construction and farm equipment. He was consumed by letters and words. He taught himself to read when he was 3 years old but he could still appreciate a cool John Deere!
