Another from the big box of 24 piece educational kids puzzles, I’m learning things I didn’t know before, or perhaps I knew and just forgot! 😉
This time I assembled one side, then scrambled up the pieces again and reassembled the other. I’m giving myself 48 pieces on my count for the year on this one.
My dad used to call the disk ripper something else, but I don’t remember what. We had a John Deere tractor when I was growing up, but we didn’t grow crops. He used the tractor for many things, and we were always glad it was available to pull people out of the ditch in the winter. (We lived on a dirt road, and many people go too fast on back roads in the winter and end up in the ditch).
My sisters and I all knew how to drive the tractor well before we could legally drive; and we used it to mow our giant lawn, help split wood for the woodstove, clear the snow out of the driveway, etc. I loved that tractor, and anytime dad asked if I wanted to go with him when he was doing something with it I would always say yes and end up having fun with him.
Sorry for the trip down memory lane, this puzzle makes me think of my dad and that’s just where my mind went. 🙂

No apologies needed! Thisbis a great story and I am glad you shared. I lived on a 40-acre ranch in northeast CA and we had a big tractor too. Huge garden and lots of snow.
Where were you living during this time period?
