Tractor Parade

One of the great things about living in a small town that also has tourism as its primary (ok, only) industry, we have a different festival virtually every weekend.  You can get an idea of how many events by looking at this schedule.  This weekend was the Ole Smoky Tractor Club and they put on a parade down our main road.  Other than the fact that they needed some Siberian Huskies in the parade, we thought it was really good.  Here are a few pictures:

One of the many cool antique tractors.

We were waving back.

A couple of more coming down the road.

Ok, lots more tractors.

    I never see tractors in my town. Mostly because I live in the middle of a big city!

    Sounds nice, but they definitely need some huskies!

    Our nephew would be in heaven! He loves tractors and actually came to our house to see the parade this year because he likes tractors so much, but there were hardly any to be seen this year. A tractor festival sounds like a great time!

    My husband and I both want to leave the city – and this is one of the reasons why. He’s never lived anywhere but the city, but I grew up in a small town the city overtook and I miss it.

    Sounds like home to me. Remember Garrison Keillor who spoke of Toast and Jelly Days in Woebegon? We have, in a nearby town, Potato Days, and in another Turkey Days. There are more too numerous to mention. Our cup runneth over!

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
