    It's the last week, the flowers were way past their prime but it was a nice trip and a nice win at the local native casino where we stopped for lunch.
    I loved the Steam Tractors.

    Sweet trip!

    My Dad and Uncles, used to work on old steam tractors when I was a Pup.
    Even then, it was a blast climbing up on those huge machines and pretend we were actually driving it.
    Have no idea what ever happened to it.

    On the farm, we had diesel tractors and combines.

    One of my big plans for "after retirement", was to build and sell these smaller steam engines, but time and health, got in the way.
    I still have enough equipment left to do it, but the lungs won't allow it::

    I drove through western Holland last week and couldn't find a single tulip field. :(

    Not if you're not married to Miss Vickie.
