Nephew's formal. Kids were organising old cars like a 55 chev, hq monaro (brother in law has a '73), fairlane and new stuff like mustangs and camaros and family stuff. Everyone had a set arrival time. Old car occupants sweating like crazy in jackets and no ac. Those in the back of the 2 doors getting dresses tangled in seat belts and front seats. Nephew rolled up in the MF3655. He was held back to roll in last with roof and head lights ablaze. Jumped out of the airconditioned cab fresh as a daisy. He won.
Yes it is an old but still decent tractor, about 160 hp though those are big horses. And lots of tyre black. It looked like new yesterday when I saw the tractor, even the scratches in the push bar had been painted over. Very easy to drive with semi auto transmission though from memory there are 32 gears to choose from in forward or reverse.This is a tractor yeah? Google says so. That is fucking rad.
LTIL - got a text today...the passport has been approved and is on the way to me. Fuck yes! Tongue poking out, 5 months worth of ungroomed (off piste?) moustache, hair like devil horns, face with grime on it from dirt jumping prior to photo, and a signature with a subtle dick and balls in it. This is going to be more fun than "you look like Charles Manson..." was.
