Don't remember what his tractor was but I know it was ancient. He used to
say it was older than he was and I think he was old when Homer was a pup!
The thing sunk those holes like he was going through sand! An impressive
site to see.
When he died his kids gave it away! They sold all his cows under that
federal program and got pennies for what they were worth. I'd have given a
lot of $$ to have one of his Jerseys. Wish we'd been living by him then.
We'd moved a couple of months before that.
