My father-in-law and his old John Deere bulldozer

Posted By on July 17, 2012

I enjoyed a little back and forth reminiscing this morning on Twitter with a friend of mine who shared a photo of his dad on his old 1951 Ford 8N. It brought back a few memories of my Ford 800 (searching for an old pre-digital photo) when we lived in Hudson, Ohio … and before Brafferton Ave and all the housing was developed.

The tractor talk also had me thinking about my father-in-law when he had better mobility; Oh how he loved clearing brush and building fire piles with his John Deere bulldozer!
