Tractor Pull?!?!!

Okay, a short note. We did go to the Fall Harvest Days Celebration at the Western North Carolina Agriculture Center today. We were going to see the tractor pull, right? Well, as I had mentioned in a previous post, I have never been to a tractor pull. And I'm not going to another one, either!!

I thought a tractor pull was a competition. And, it is. But, not the way I had anticipated it.
I thought the competition would be against others in a race of sorts. Boy, was I wrong. The tractors just pull this weighted "sled" as far as they can and then it's done. Yes, that's it. One at a time, each tractor pulls this sled and then it's over. Big deal. Sorry, I'm sure for those tractor enthusiasts out there, this is big. It was obvious because folks were lined up alone the fence and had their chairs and they were there for the duration. These people take their tractors very seriously!

Needless to say, we didn't stay long. One cool thing - there was a woman competing in the tractor pull on a pink Allis-Chalmers tractor. It was great. Here's a picture.

Now I can say I've been to a tractor pull. BOOOOOOOOORRRRRRING!!!
