Eric's Day Flashback - Tractors.

The flashback this week comes from August 2007.

This is dad's big red tractor which he drives most days. I go in and make sure everything is safe for him in there.

This is his tractor too and it is very old, in fact it's the same age as my dad and that means they are both antiques. It's called the little grey Fergie.

He usually uses his big red tractor, but he still uses this one sometimes when he wants to get into tight places.I like the red one best because it's got a nice comfy seat, and windows to let the sun in. Checking tractors is another of my mancat jobs.

I bet those tractors aren't half as good without Eric to inspect them!

William said...

Yes, I wonder the same thing as Sparkle!

Tractor snoopervision is an important job. We hope Flynn watches over the tractor too.

We loved looking back at all the things you kept in order around the farm. You were a hard worker!

We hope that Flynn keeps the tractor seat warm for his Dad like Eric did.

Psst !
In Sweden we call old grey Fergie´s
Grålle.
It´s a mix of two words Grå = grey and Pålle = horsey.

XOXO

Eric was very conscientious in his duties.

Madi and Mom said...

Eric was such a good farm hand I bet he could even change the oil if need be. We are enjoying the flashbacks as many were posted before we knew you and your handsome mancats

I can remember when tractors looked like that - no safety cab and didn't move very fast. Nice to see one still in working order.

Katie and Glogirly said...

Very cool!!!
I've never been inside a tractor!
I bet it's fun being up so high. .. though it probably scares the mice away, huh!
; )

meowmeowmans said...

Aw, it's so nice seeing these photos of Eric inspecting the tractors to make sure they were in tip top shape. Does Flynn help out with that now? :)

Brian said...

That was some serious, and darn good inspecting!

Laila and Minchie said...

That tractor seat sure is comfy looking! Just what is needed for long days out in the fields.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Eric I don't know how we missed seeing your post in our Reader but we did. So we are a bit late but still arrived here. We love this you look so handsome up on top of that tractor.

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! You are one rugged mancat! Sigh!

Katie Isabella said...

Eric, you were very good to your Dad keeping him safe like that! Flynn is probably taking over that duty for now. Love you sweet boy. xxoo

Kari said...

We love how comfortable you are around your dad's tractors, Eric. We're sure if you had thumbs you'd be a master tractor driver yourself.

Timmy Tomcat said...

Angle Eric they are some really nice tractors and good job making sure Dad is safe. Our Dad really misses doing work around the house. We still hiss at that hit and run driver who hurt him so bad all those years ago that he cannot enjoy these things.
Thanks fur sharing
Watch over us dear furend
