Lucille is Rolling Again
Lucille is our beautiful red (she does need a paint job) 1959 Massey Ferguson tractor. One of her tires rotted and would no longer hold air, not even enough for small jobs. So there she sat, out of commission, probably feeling unloved and under appreciated until hubby's birthday.
I told Wayne that he needed to go get his own birthday gift earlier in the month and told him that I wanted him to get a tire for Lucille. Of course he agreed to that, and we do have several Tractor Supply stores in neighboring cities. We just love those stores, don't ya'll? It's so fun just to go in and browse at all the supplies and I like that they also have some indoor/outdoor home decor.
I know there's a lot of bush hogging that's being done now. Things have a way of growing up and looking bad in just a short time. And the next time our dirt road needs grading, Lucille will get the honor of helping with that too. She's got a lot of years behind her and she's got a lot of years ahead of her. She knew she wasn't parked for good, she knew we wouldn't just let her sit there and turn into a rusty skeleton.
