Tractor mechanic!


“I worked on tractors and my brother worked with our team accountant.

I was about 19. In those days, all the tractors belonged to the local agricultural equipment station. The people would cry, “A tractor mechanic!” And they would stop to watch us. It was certainly a lot better than digging with a spade!”
