If you are near noTTafarm any time over the next three weeks and you smell diesel in the air, you can thank my dad. He agreed that Scott could borrow his New Holland Boomer 35 for some noTTafarm maintenance! Dad towed it to Omaha last night and won't retrieve it til the last week of the month. Scott could barely wait for 5 o'clock to get here today (Tuesday) so he could get home and start driving.
Bibbers watched (of course) as Scott backed the Boomer out of its temporary home.
Looking at Scott's happy smile, I can hear my big brother telling me, "You'd better get your checkbook ready because he's going to want a tractor now." You're probably right, Mark!
Scott decided to do a quick practice with the front loader controls, scooping up one little chunk of sand.
He moved the bucket of sand to behind the barn, then off-loaded the sand into a waiting trash can for storage. With that little exercise, the Boomer was put back in the corn crib for the night. Something tells me it won't be long until the smell of diesel wafts through the beautiful August noTTafarm air once again.
