Cliff and I have gotten rid of a lot of our tractor collection. Three of the remaining ones are John Deere tractors, and two of those are the most-used on the place.
So Cliff will say something like this: "I'm going to mow with the John Deere."
"Which John Deere?" I'll ask.
And he'll specify.
It happened again this morning, and I said, "Cliff, we have to find names for each tractor so we always know which one we're talking about."
Here's what we came up with:
Recently acquired classic lawn tractor, "Little Johnny".
The old primered-but-unpainted 520. We'll probably just call her "The 520". Cliff is raking hay with this one as I type.
And the current work-horse of the farm...
"The Jap-Deere", because these modern John Deeres are made in Japan... at least in part. I stole this name from the Tractor Tales message board, by the way. There are many other terms I've learned on that forum, some of which I would hesitate to use, most found in the Taler Dictionary.
That picture is over a year old; it makes me rather sad to look at it because, in order to move in with us recently, Arick had to get rid of that pit bull. I know that was hard for him.
