Just in time for Christmas in CT

Postby gbrucejr » Mon Jan 09, 2012 12:26 pm

My '51 cub, My Fiance' and Me on the last weekend before Christmas. We figured it was time to get a tree since we're both busy. So rather than strap a tree to the top of my car, we decided to take my Cub to the local tree farm. I am not at liberty to say whether or not she rode on the back the whole way there, but we both got cold. The Prospect Flower Farm owner was in amazement when i parked the tractor in a very photogenic spot. He was thrilled for the photo opportunity. The tree wasn't in the best of shape, (last weekend before Christmas) but the story makes up for it. I proposed to her the Christmas night next to that tree. The story is great and I wanted to share it with you guys. I'll post about my cub restoration story some other time, but for the Christmas of 2011, it was one to remember! :D

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
