Cranks My Tractor

Published: Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 09:08 AM.

Recently a friend of mine was talking about how proud she was of her son for working and earning the money to buy his first car.  This is a big deal for a 16 or 17 year-old and I would have to agree that it is very commendable.

Having cut grass, cleaned toilets and sweated many a summer day to pay for the gas in my 150 dollar 1968 Mercury Cougar with flies sticking to the hood because it was painted outside – I understand.

If a teenager does this, they are going a long way to understanding how things work.

However, it was the background of the picture of the young man and his earned car that caught my eye.

This friend of mine is a little conniving in my opinion.  After studying the picture for a few minutes, I realized what she was doing.

She was bragging on her husband.

You see the picture was made in their garage, or possibly the garage of an unoccupied house.
