tractors!!!!....and happy 70th Fergie

 Little Grey Fergies doing all sorts of things. Well it is the Ferguson Grey tractor's 70th birthday this year!

 not just pulling....

and tractors of many hues-

 one from Denmark,originally...

 and one like he learned to drive on....age nine....
 one of the three remaining 1930 Fergies

 and the original tractor...a Clydesdale Horse!

There were all sorts of cars, a few bikes, many stationary engines and implements to follow tractors or horses. All sorts of stalls, food tents and a craft tent.The lorries were in the car park of the mart as it was so muddy.

They included this of just over 130 tank transporters, ten of which the 5 year old Pirate saw lined up ready to go to France in the orchard in Kent where he was born.

Plenty of inspiration....some pictures....a poorly Pirate..tooth abcess, and I don't think  the ABs have he has developed a cough and sneezy runny nose cold....he WILL do too much when he can do,then has to recharge...

Plenty of things I ought to be doing...including getting out on the bike, more gardening, drawing, putting work online to sell, updating the blurb on my website........inertia/worry has won so far.....

 Not just a Dwarf Bread Discus...the latest edition is better, after buying an oven thermometer...the oven needs a new thermostat
 Ayr present

A Thought

To sit and watch unmoving, to listen silently.

How often do we do that?

A walk in Bouth, Cumbria, last weekend
