#687 Tractor Pride

You already know that Kelly is proud of his new (1987) Wheel Horse tractor.

Tractor pride must run in the family, because 3-year-old Sam also loves his tractor.
Yesterday, yet another picture-perfect fall day, Kelly sent Sam running for his tractor when he drove the Wheel Horse out of the garage.
And that's when the tractor competitions begin.
 Some of the competitions are head-to-head.
Some are transitory.
 Some are conversational.
 It is always important to keep an eye on the other tractor at all times.
As with all happy endings, a compromise is eventually found.

Yours in loving these red tractors and their drivers, big and small,
