We didn’t need to go anywhere. Yes, that’s our house behind the parade of orange, red, tan, silver and green tractors. They drove past the house for three hours, in groups of a couple of hundred or so. The largest number that I saw was #732.
Most drivers waved at us, a few honked or tweeted their horns and a couple even threw wrapped candy at me.
Most of these tractors were old restored but reliable antiques which didn’t have enclosures. It was a good thing that the day is cool. The rain didn’t start until after the parade was over at our house but I don’t know where the tractors were located when it stormed.
We have done many family things while in Iowa. My grandson, Joshua graduated from high school. My niece, Mc Kensie graduated from college. Our son from Alaska visited for a couple of days and helped Terry. Our son, Richard and daughter-in-law, Shelly and grandson, Marcus helped us tape and “mud” walls and take off wallpaper and thick paint. Then they took time to shoot Rich’s bow and arrows in the back yard.
Yes, we are living in the house but still have a lot of work to do before it is organized. Yes, we still are planning on RVing so that means we need two of most things for activities of daily living. We are visiting the thrift centers and buying new and used things.
To those of you who have asked about my niece who is expecting triplets, Mindy and babies are doing okay but Mindy is in the hospital on bed rest. She is in her 23rd week of pregnancy.
