Some learn quicker than others. Some learn from others mistakes and some never learn.

The folks in Spencerville do like tractor/truck pulling, in most all of its various forms. I started my teaching Vocational Agriculture career there in 1968. Fond, and some not so fond, memories of the experience.

Broken leg. Probably a damaged ego.
