My Cub is a Chick Magnet

Postby goldencub » Tue Aug 13, 2013 4:03 pm

This past weekend, I was hauling the last of the split firewood from a spot near the road. It's a popular route for horseback riders. On TWO separate occasions, attractive young lady riders paused to say "Hi" and to say what a nice day it was. Then, one gal said "Oh, what a cute tractor that is!", smiled and rode away. The other rider said "That's a really nice-looking tractor you have" and rode away. I had no idea that my Cub was a Chick Magnet!!! I only wish I had known about that fact 50 or so years ago!!!!

It would have been a lot better if they didn't ride away! :lol:

Seems "Rode Away" is the operative phrase....Perhaps they prefer if you took them for a "Ride on Your Big Green Tractor". This post gave me a good laugh in the Marriott in lovely Paramus, NJ this evening.

It was either that or a pic or two of the horses. Quite frankly, I'd rather see the wood than the horses. :lol:

It's like bringing your little Bro to the beach when he is around 8. All the ladies like it, but don't expect to take one home. Just get the phone number. :0

The only bad thing is the gal who liked my Cub moved in and married me.
Tractors are like watermelons: the RED is good and you throw away the GREEN.
