Pioneer Days

Row after row after row of tractors.  If there is a tractor model left that didn't get melted down for the war effort, its here.

Printing press.  Wish we could have tried this but a woman was just demonstrating how it worked and gave us a little card with Pioneer Days 2012 printed on it.

Made out of printers blocks.

A steam engine that blew smoke rings.  You don't see that everyday.

1912 - tractors have come a long way in 100 years.  This one had steel tires, and no cab, air conditioning, stereo, GPS, joy stick, t.v. monitor to watch the rows, comfy recliner like seat or pop holder.  This would be considered roughing it now days!
Not everyone was having a good time.

We enjoyed the day with our farmish kind of friends.   The boys went into the jail and we shut the door and said we were going to go get a malt but would be sure to stop back later to let them out.  Didn't go over so well.  Okay, malts all around.
I get the 2nd Hand Lions part but, zipper club?  I don't think I even want to know.
Yep, I can relate.

I want this.
