It might be eight long months before Memorial Day weekend rolls round, but we’re starting to talk tractors around here. Just got word from the boss man that the Antique Caterpillar Machinery Owners Club will be hosting their national show at Best of the West 2017. Should be fun.
*Sigh* … while there are a few stragglers still down in the pasture, almost all our tractor friends have gone back home. Thank goodness we have these beautiful photos and video to give us our “equipment fix” until 2017. Endless thanks to Another Rick Evans Photo and Vector Life for allowing us to share their talent!

Whew! We’re dusty and our feet are tired, our lips chapped and faces sunburnt; but we think this year’s show was a big success! Thank you to everyone who helped us put it all together and for those of you who took the time to travel out to our little ranch. Happy Memorial Day from our family to yours.
Yee-haw! Are you ready to get your tractor on?
