Love Tractor

September 14, 2009

My head is spinning from the busyness (somehow that phrase is conjuring up a mash-up between The Exorcist and Richard Scarry). A little too much to do today. And, for that matter, the entire month of September.

And my trip to the grocery store this morning was significantly lengthened by my getting stuck behind a man driving an antique tractor down the middle of the road for the last five miles. I would have been grumpy about it, but it’s a beautiful day and he was beautiful to look at, his white hair shining in the sun, the fire engine red tractor polished within an inch of its life, it’s giant wheels so delicate, almost skeletal looking. I wished I’d had a camera. I wonder where he was going. It reminded me of that movie with the actor who played Matthew Cuthbert in Anne of Green Gables. I can never remember the name of either of them. Straight Story and Richard Farnsworth. Thank you, internet!

I did manage to post a round up of websites over atAJ’s Clubhouse, so head over there and see what’s new and throw in your two cents.

Perhaps I’ll be back later, but perhaps not. Tonight is a meeting of our school district’s finance committee where we may hear about the school closing, which seems imminent. I feel like I should go, although I really don’t want to. But first, the library.

    I thought of that immediately — I liked that movie, although I always think its name is Tractor Man, which I actually think is the name of another movie. (No, apparently not.)
