Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

Farm Use

When John and I went to Rocky Mount Tuesday morning, we were behind a silver Cadillac for about nine or ten miles. Notice anything odd about that car?

OK, maybe we need to get a little closer. Now, check out the license plate:

It's a farm vehicle! I'll bet some of y'all citified readers of this blog thought farm vehicles were old pick-up trucks. Well, think again.

How many bales of hay you reckon a body could haul in that Caddy? Or sacks of feed? Or hogs—lessee, at least three in the back seat, another one or two in front. . . .

Reckon that Caddy could pull a bush-hog?

Seems to be leaning to the left side....hmmmmmm...possibly some heavy 'farm' cargo filling the trunk left side?

A heavy sack of, uh, grain in the trunk might cause that. Ya think?

You should submit that to the paper.
