Imagine a sea of vintage tractors traveling 10-12 mph in near 100 degree temperatures. And one brand new shiny John Deere 8330 with a cab and air conditioning traveling with them. That new JD was the tractor I was driving this morning in the WHO Tractor Ride. I missed a few of the rural smells and the relief of the occasional breeze because I was in a cab, but I sure enjoyed getting to drive a modern marvel. It is not quite the same as my tractors at home. It sure wouldn't be hard to get used to!

We had a good discussion at the Courier in Waterloo and a good visit to the Cedar Valley Tech Works.

I got back to Des Moines just in time to hear the Mormon Tabernacle Choir concert.

Every day is interesting. I love my job!
