Happy Good Friday! ~ 336
Today’s post has little to do with Photography. I’m showing this Robin because Jeanne reminded me last evening that I had not posted my traditional Spring Robin image yet. So as a celebration of Good Friday I show you this little guy.
Wednesday I said good-by to an old friend. For 16 years we have cut the grass together on side hills, in the rain and wind. Under brutally hot sunshine and bitterly cold, gray autumn days. Though plagued with transfer case leakage, flat tires, bent steering rods, burnt solenoids, broken mower blades and a broken seat it showed up for the job each time I turned the key. I remember the year we bought the little tractor I put the 1998 on the side and Angie said, “Why are you doing that Dad, like you’d forget when you bought it.” Actually if it wasn’t for those numbers I would have forgotten when I bought it. 🙂
Anyway The place where we bought the new tractor would haul this guy away but I got to thinking that this tractor in the right hands still had life in it. I couldn’t fix the transfer case and they wanted half the price of a new tractor to repair it for me but I know there are folks with the needed skills and ingenuity to squeeze more life out of this little tractor. So I started it up Wednesday morning and drove it out to the curb (our trash pick up day) and Jeanne made a sign that read “Runs – Free.”
I drove the tractor out at 6:39 a.m. and by 7:15 a.m. it was gone. 🙂
Thus the adage “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.”
That’s it for today. Enjoy this blessed joyful day. Thank you for stopping by the blog and be careful.
