Artist's Description

This image is part of Erin’s challange here
This is one of my favorite images because it brings back fond memories of my childhood.
When I grew up, I lived in a nice neighborhood, mostly composed of middle to upper middle class families. Just before my teen years, my family bought a farm. From that day forward, we were out on the farm hoeing blue grass, driving either our large tractor (case) or the smaller Ford, driving combine and driving truck. I could barely reach the pedals on most of the equipment (I had to sit way forward in the seat to drive the trucks).
This old Ford tractor was one I spent hundreds of hours on. Discing, plowing, mowing and cultivating among other things. I used to come back from the fields looking like one big dust ball.
That is why this image is so important to me. It helps relive some of my best (and worst) childhood memories.
