Ah, a leisurely Sunday afternoon and then phone rings and it’s Lana saying “the neighbor called and the green tractor’s on fire!”

Sure enough, it was.

Well Done

We had had the block heater plugged in because we were planning on using it tomorrow. It must of shorted out and started the fire.

Thanks to our neighbor calling the fire department, and the light winds today it didn’t spread to the shop where our service truck, semi, and big tractor were all parked. In this picture you can see how close it was parked to the shop.

These Deere tractors are rugged. Tom tried to take it for a spin.

Start 'er up!

Start ‘er up!

Surprisingly, even though we found the key in a melted pile of rubble, it wouldn’t start.

Coincidentally I just paid the insurance bill this morning and I’d been muttering about how expensive the doggone insurance was. Seems like a pretty good deal now!


  1. Tom says:

    Many thanks to trusty hunter Cliff for calling the fire department!

  2. Missy says:

    Oh man, that is WAY close to the shed. Cliff deserves one of your pies!

    wow, pretty charred, will you replace with the same thing?

  4. Lana says:

    I don’t think the next one will be green.
