Bob’s farm vehicle

My columns tell about our lives on Sunnybook Farm. Today I read one about Bob.

It’s no secret that all our machinery was old. Bob never bought new, except one Ford tractor when he was in Illinois and in a partnership with his dad. Otherwise, everything was used.

Today I share a tale about a family van that was turned into a farm repair van.

Bob much rather work on a tractor than on a car or a van. He preferred big machinery.

Every machine was worked until the end of its natural life. Some were used to fix another, but that didn’t work with cars or vans. They just went to the big junkyard in the sky.

This van was nearing its final days when I wrote this column.

Until next time, that’s it from Sunnybook Farm.
