|The old Fordson|
Years ago, in the 1930's, my Grandfather rented a farm near Evan's City. Pa. The farm had an old barn, in which sat an old Fordson tractor, down in the lower part of the barn. Us kids--all cousins, of various ages--would like to sit on the old tractor and pretend that we were driving it. Of course, it hadn't run for quite a while before Grandad moved in. I can still remember sitting there on the seat, shouting orders to my brother to hook up the plow, or hay wagon! Well, the old folks gave up farming and moved to the city, and the farm went back to the owner. The stuff was sold off at an auction. I suppose the tractor went to the scrap man, but I like to think that some local bought it and got it running! I know the man that owns the farm now, but he said the tractor wasn't there when he bought the place. I'm now 77 yrs. of age, and repairing lawn tractors and mowers, but I can still see that old Fordson sitting there, just waiting for us kids to take her out to plow a field! (In her dreams, of course!) Rusty Jones, Pittsburgh, Pa.
