A Bit of Fun—Saturday, October 26, 2014

We took Saturday off and headed up to the Devris and Olathe Fire Department Punkin Chunkin and Classic and Antique Tractor Pull in Olathe, Colorado.

ChunkingThere were booths of fun things to purchase and activities for the kids to try. The radio and local Television was on hand to report the activities of the Punkin Chunkin,

Pumpkin-drop-1 complete with a helicopter drop of a huge basket of pumpkins at the end of the Punkin Chunkin contest.

The tractors lined up waiting for the pull to begin; allowing people to see and touch the tractors of yester year.  (Although, in our case we still use ours for every day work on the farm.)

Please

Ours turned out to be a fun tractor for families.  Several families asked if it was okay to sit on the tractor “SURE, GO RIGHT AHEAD!”

(Tractor’s LOVE attention!)

Tractor-talesIt was also a chance to visit with old friends and to make new ones.  There were only 21 tractors in the pull.

Your friend on a Western Colorado Farm,

  1. Beautiful day–and it looks like a warm one in Colorado. Congrats to Terry… That was some kind of HEAVY load he was pulling… Amazing…. I’ve never been to a tractor pull before–but would love to go sometime.

    We have been in gorgeous North Carolina this week with friends. Had a great time!!!!

    Hugs,
    Betsy
