Then and now

 Then...they created a cute little photo op.

Now...her feet can reach the pedals...

At Holly Tree Manor, it's always time to have a little tractor fun.  That's me at about two years of age on my grandfather's Allis Chalmers tractor, and me today on my John Deere 1023.

I can still see in my mind's eye, my grandfather in his brown and white plaid CPO jacket on his orange Allis Chalmers. He had that tractor for over 50 years and I wish my mother and my uncle would have given my husband the chance to rebuild the engine. In a perfect world...

At least I come by my appreciation of the tractor as a vital country estate tool honestly.
