Bill has a Farmall A in original condition with mouldboard plough. He drove off on the miserable weather morning it was to attend the Bendigo event with his Farmall entry - toys for boys as some may say. (Forgive me Bill)
His pride and joy though is his 1927 John Deere with Genius plough.
Bill also has a Bullarto Vintage Tractor Pull.
Aren't these all incredible?
Jill and Bill grow spuds, oats, rape and other such crops.
In fact, Bill was featured on an ABC program recently with his spuds.
I most certainly appreciate their permission to share these photos with you.
So, I got thinking about all the old stuff laying around our God's Little Acre, some of which John does use, others allowing the grass to grow around them. So, just for fun, I thought I'd take a few photos today of John's Vintage Farm Machinery - tongue in cheek, of course. Note what a beautiful sunny, blue sky day it was today, even though it is winter.

Now, do you think he may qualify for the next
Heritage Vintage Display?
AS LONG AS IT MAKES HIM HAPPY.
Now, just because TODAY is the 50th Anniversary of the BEATLES visit to Australia in 1964 when Beatlemania took over fiercely, plus the fact that they were remembered also for their hair as well as their music, thought I would share this with you as my Beatle Memorabilia.
Taken by Melinda when she visited this weekend, a genuine (no photoshop here) photo of our own BEATLE EMU with a bad hair day. Note the emu in the background - this is how their head should look. HILARIOUS.
