Sullied and Sizzling Tractors

Muck Boot Diva HeadshotOn my late night rides to Central New York, I often hear songs asking women if they think their man’s tractor is sexy. 

Let me tell you — I don’t know of ANY woman alive who dreams about sitting on their man’s lap, in a dusty field, and sweating profusely in the sun on top a tractor that is sullied and sizzling.  Sorry guys, but that’s just the plain honest truth of it – she doesn’t think your tractor’s sexy.  Try Tahiti – that’s sexy!

And what about those tractors – do THEY think they're sexy?

They ride through the mud and snow, haul sweaty farmers on their backs – endure tobacco drool, coffee spills, and diesel drips.  They have a real close relationship with dirt and manure.  They are jealous of horses.   No one gives them treats, or baths, unless they happen to be the star of the local tractor pull. 

Nevertheless, all MWMs (Men with Muscles) think tractors are very sexy, and believe me if you're driving past a tractor on the road it will turn their heads every time!

This brings me to my escapade.  I was roaming the hills of Lebanon, New York, in my big, black, pick-up truck happily singing “Two Sleepy People” to my windshield – the wipers applauded.  This arrangement works quite well for me.

I think my tractor is sexy but that's, probably, because I love the colors - green and yellow -smile-.

"The MWM has his Tractor – and I’m sure he thinks it’s sexy." That reminds me of that old Tie-Rod Stewart song: "If you think it's sexy, and you want my tractor, come on, baby, let me know...." No? Ah, well...I am always messing up lyrics to songs. Great post, Diva; your humor makes me smile. Cindy

Diva the only thing missing is a front end loader. I had a small Yanmar w/o a loader for years. When I decided I really needed a front end loader, I was talked out of it since it wasn't a 4WD. I looked at a used one, but a couple of the manufactures had zero % financing & I did the math & it decided new was in the budget and ordered it. Plus it was made in Georgia. I went shopping & decided on a JD 31 HP with the loader,tiller & finishing mower. It is so handy. When I weed, the tractor is there, I fill the shovel & off to the compost pile, pick up mulch or bagged goods and back to the flower beds and dig in/up everything. Oh and it comes in handy for cutting grass.
