Amy Schumer is a minor league menace


She’s not funny.

Her new movie is getting poor reviews.

She promised to leave for Spain if Trump won the WhiteHouse.

I’m still waiting.

be vigilant

Whether window boxes of flowers, 
or your own private, little patch,

Guard our Earth.

in the driver’s seat

Buying a tractor is like buying right into America, y’know?
not my pic but wish it were.
Tractors are the foundation of rural civilization.

They do the work of more than a 100 men.

They are easy to understand.

And they are stoic to their hard use and 
the weather they endure.

With this PTO (power take off), this 1910 model with the 770 bucket can drive everything from a lawnmover to a harvester to a snow blower, without complaint.

It’s a good tractor.

So it was with shock and surprise the other day, and more than a bit of disappointment, 

I learned that our wonderful 1987 FORD “1910 Tractor with Bucket”...

was made in Japan, the year before.

Only the paint job is American.
