So when my Grandpa was about my age he used to drive Farmall Tractors on his farm. Somewhere in the past few years he expressed that he'd love to drive one again and take the grandkids for a hayrack ride.
Well, mom found a guy in town with about 8 Farmall Tractors who was more than willing to show them off. So, on the one day in the whole year that the Deutschs actually come to Channahon, we loaded everyone up and took them to see the tractors. My grandpa even got to drive one. I'm not sure I've ever seen him so happy–he even cried a little. “THe last time I drove one of those was 1949.”
He's a really cool guy.
