Cranks My Tractor

We will see what she thinks about the little red tractor, but a girl who prefers a toothbrush over a red convertible is one I want to watch grow up.

Rodney Atkins, a fellow who sings country music, has a wonderful song about “A Man on a Tractor.”  In the lyrics, Atkins notes that his wife says, “It’s not about living another man’s life, it’s about seeing your own differently.”

The song is based on seeing a fellow on a tractor and his dog out in the middle of a field and realizing how happy they were.

Before I give this little red tractor away, I’m going to take it out in the yard with my two dogs and see what kind of feeling I get.  If I can find a cardboard box big enough, I also might make myself a fort (if someone around here will let me use a butcher knife).
