ANTIQUE TRACTOR AND ENGINE SHOW

At the park they are having an antique tractor and engine show for the weekend. So we went, Thursday, it was a great sunny 75 degree day, and our last full day in Florida. Saw a lot of old tractors which reminded me of my grandfather. When I was younger, my parents would pack all us kids up and away we would go, to my grandfathers farm in Pa for a week or two. He had a large farm, and most everything known to man concerning farm equipment. It was neat seeing and hearing all the old ones. The old engines they had we neat too, most I never heard of before. A guy had old big wheel bikes from the late 1800’s, There was also a root beer truck, selling old fashion root beer of course. I had to treat myself twice to some, and Melissa had a root beer float, yum, yum. It was fun talking to all the old timers, but one thing that wasnt’ there, younger people. No one is next in line to carry on after the old timers bite it. Sad to say that is with a lot of things now. I could go on and on, but no.

When this blade is running it cuts through the small log and out comes a cedar shingle. We were not able to see it run, but stand clear.
