Memories of an Old Tractor

When I think of country living, I think of farms and tractors. What comes to your mind? I grew up on a farm and we had a John Deer tractor similar to the one below. 

My Dad use to give us rides on it when we were little and as we got older, we were taught how to drive it. We thought it was the best thing to do and use to beg our Dad to let us drive the tractor.

Someone's Trash is Another Person's Treasure

Have you found a "trash" item that became a treasure to you? I have found many trash items, although I did not keep all of them. However, when I found these vintage wooden chairs just sitting there waiting for garbage pickup, I had to save and keep them.

Garbage pickup is like dumpster diving without having to climb into a dumpster.
