This weeks theme at Funky Junk is rust
So I decided I would introduce you to my lawn ornament
B E S S I E
There was a time that she actually worked this land
but in her retirement years she is resting comfortably in my front yard
I love her rusty beauty.
Okay, do you think I am crazy for having a broken down tractor with a name as a lawn ornament.
Hope you are not laughing to hard at me
The funny thing is how she got to her resting place
A few years ago when I decided I wanted her my dad and hubby set out to bring her to me,
You see she had breathed her last breath about a mile from my front yard and had stayed there until I
invited her home.
So Dad and Hubby drove the BobCat to her and the truck
They attached her to the BobCat
and my Dad drove backwards (visions of the movie Cars are going through my head) with her attached with
my husband in the truck behind him.
The last strech of the road the tires gave way and were flopping in the air,. it was a very funny sight to see.
Since then she rest comfortably under a shade tree.
