Cranks My Tractor

Then again, I think about what my son “does” to music and still calls it music and I must say it is pretty imaginative.

Oh well.  

The other day I was in one of these places that sell farm goods, feed and stuff for horses.  I saw this little red tractor that caught my eye.  It wasn’t a fancy tractor that you pedal or anything; it was one that you “scoot” around on using your feet.

It was appropriate for a very small child.  My nephew’s daughter needed it in my opinion.  Girls need tractors, dogs and BB guns just as much or more than little boys.

Your nephew’s daughter is one of those relationships that they have invented a name for.  They say she is your “great-niece.”  It does not make sense to me.  A great grandchild is “three levels” down.  “Grand-niece” would make a lot more sense.

Anyway, she needed that tractor.

A few days before Christmas, my nephew’s wife shared some pictures of another gathering they had been to with her family.  You know how the holidays are; you divide the weekends up and celebrate for two or three weeks.
