Our day at a tractor swap-meet

The pictures pretty much tell the tale.  Cliff and I took the fourteen-year-old twins who live next door and went to Adrian, Missouri, to see what sort of old equipment could be found at the annual swap-meet.  On the way home we stopped at Harrisonville and browsed the Family Center, a HUGE farm store.  I found the saddle of my dreams, Tucker brand, for $1,200.  I don't see me getting it any time soon... I have a monitor coming, you know.

I noticed alot of tractors being hauled by today while I was at work. I assumed they were having a tractor pull...which they have a few times a  year here.
I love looking at the old ones!

Not only in my stomping grounds, but my town!
I'd forgotten about the swap meet, but I forget a lot of things anymore!
The Family Center really is kinda amazing; a good selection of tack--as well as just about anything else you'd want. I buy some clothes there--when they're on clearance, and they still have the best price on Levis anywhere around--when they're on sale, anyway!
The used to be Tractor Parts and Farm Supply; half of the population still refer to it as that; I get a kick out of saying, (about some article of clothing someone's commented on) "I got this at Tractor Parts and Farm Supply!"

The first house you lived in looks like it's in good shape. :-) And I can't believe what they want for those old tractors! Wow!
