Fall is definitely here, and that's what the rain did all day, with increasing intensity ! The little drainage ditch that is normally dry, became a navigable waterway by this afternoon. for canoes at least. My camera was confined to indoors - outdoors was rather bleak anyway. I decided to go to the large garage and make a few photos of my all-season 'beast of burden'.
It's a David Brown, circa 1965, but it runs very well, and served on a real farm in its previous life. Now it's eased into semi-retirement - I use it to cut (notice I didn't say mow) the tall grass that grows beyond our lawn, and in winter time to keep our driveway clear of snow. Tractors have come a long way since this one was built - notice the lack of air conditioning, or even a cab, and also the lack of upholstery. I have to confess that I recycled an old sofa cushion to act as a shock absorber on that bare metal seat - we all have our limits.
