Told him yeah, he could have a new tractor, maybe either one of these............
A Lanz Bulldog from the 1920's or the Deutz from 1939. What do you think? We marvelled at the display from the Henty & District Antique Farm Machinery Club.

His dream is one day to convert our van into a mobile home and choof off around the outback, maybe finally teaching at some of the places where people keep asking me to come to. "Have Van, Will Travel" sort of scenario. One day!
Maybe he should buy one of these and see our great land?
I never knew before that the dog wasn't permitted to run through the gates as if he crossed between the "farmer" and the sheep he had points deducted.
For 27 years the same guy has been travelling the Field Days showing his skills with fencing knots. John has watched several times, then returned home still baffled at one particular knot he just didn't remember. So, this year, the dear fellow gave John a sample to take home because he asked him his age and probably felt sorry for him!
There you go, for all the other farmers! Didn't take much to make John's day! Will also add that we came home with Solar Panels for the roof to cut our electricity costs and maybe make a little extra.
I'm so glad Henty Field Days only come once a year but I truly know what you girls feel like when you visit a Craft Show and would prefer to have the Bank of England with you! Keeping the reins on John's fantasies was extremely hard work with all that wonderful new machinery!
