Then it's back further to the time of the Indians. I swear this morning when everything is quiet (like that's going to happen) I'll take a quick trip by myself and get some better pictures. It's hard to take pictures and drive a tractor!
Back further and you come to the main attraction. DINOSAURS!! Here's the saber tooth tiger, ready to pounce.
A pterodactyl ready to launch himself off the mountain.
That's a raptor (??) on the right and something with a big fin straight ahead. The kids know the names of every single one. I have no clue.
In case you were wondering, there is no driving straight on the road. You have to make wild and crazy turns in order for the 10th car to remain somewhat in the middle of the road. It's a fun game to see if I can make the trailers follow the exact same track every time.
The brontosaurus is something like 20 feet tall, standing next to a baby in the nest.
At long last we come to the T-Rex, the favorite of all, eliciting screams of excitement from the kids. This is Simon. Remember the old game Simon Says? Well every time he hears the tractor, he blurts out Simon says FREEZE ... and all the dinosaurs freeze for the entire time we are in sight. It's why they never move as I drive around. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Unfortunately for me, it was a twelve hour day yesterday running back and forth, driving both tractors. All the men were taken away to do that back breaking work called harvesting the pumpkins.
The best part of the day was when two guys came up and said I drove that tractor like a pro ... better than their employees. What better compliment could I get??
I got home at 7:30 and fell into bed at 8:30. I'm feeling rather beat up, but with four big schools showing up today, I'll be back at it in a few short hours.
All I need is a gallon of coffee!!!!
