Later Sunday at the end of the show everyone was packing up and heading home. Uncle Vic’s traction engine still needed to get loaded up but the fire was long out, so I hooked the Selene to it and pulled it over to the parking area for the trucks and proceeded to push it onto the trailer, Holy Crap those things are heavy!, There was no way the Selene was going to get that thing pushed up the ramps, I had to go grab the Super Six and I still had all four tires scratching, The boys told me after it was loaded that the thing weighs 15 ton.

Hundreds of hours of labor, thousands of dollars invested, taking three little girls down the lane to pic flower for their grandma…..priceless.

Hi Pat
Nice looking tractor and I'm sure Grandma was thrilled with the flowers :)
Statement of the day an American saying how much money he used to have in the bank before restoring tractors,
" Priceless" :lol: :eyes: :run: .
on a serious note I guess it don't really matter what you spent as long as you enjoyed doing it, and the cost was worth it to you :) .
Regards Robert
A Fordson is for life not just for Christmas !.

Well, at least the selene managed to pull it, I always think that no other tractor in there that was in the same size as the fordson could pull that engine! :mrgreen:

Thanks Pavel!
The next morning several fiends and family were sitting down having breakfast on the grounds, one of them was my Aunt Sue that happens to have a good humor. During the mornings conversation Granny complained that her back hurt the night before so she went downstairs to sleep in her recliner, Aunty Sue asked her if The sore back was from having to sleep with my trophy in the bed!!

Always pleasant to have family and friends with a sense of humour. But who were the 'fiends'?

The friends in the pic, Lary, a year or two behind me in school, my oldest sister almost married one of his brothers of a big family that we have always been fairly close with. The young lady with the beer in her hand is Jen, my cousins fiancé. I will have to get a better pic of her with one of the tractors as she is a cutie.
