The paddock got so muddy that the tractor, it got stuck, so Farmer Andy got another tractor and that really was bad luck. “You will never take our Freedom!” cried Andy to the rain, but that tractor, it kept on sliding right down into the drain. The poor little tractor, it pulled and took the strain, however the mud was much too strong and it too was in the drain. Finally, with both tractors now were buried six feet deep Andy went to see Longshanks Stratton, with mud upon his seat. “Sir” said he, “I’m in a bind, my little tractor could’t manage ... I am told you could get me out of this mess before I cause more damage”. So down the road, with a third tractor, our muddy hero went Where he pulled until both tractors were free and his stamina was spent. So all that was left from the drama of this epic Puke tale, is upon our local road, a great big muddy trail.

Farewell Party Postponement We will not be having Rob and family’s farewell on this day, we had a bit of miscommunication and over eagerness by the suborganising committee, any excuse for a party aye? Personally, I blame Andy, no particular reason though I am sure the multiple mud tractor incident had a flow on effect, and because he’s the Chairman of the BOT who admitted that he doesn’t read my newsletters! Shock horror! After all they were nominated for a Pulitzer … weren’t they? ;-) District Christmas Party - Friday 9th December Don’t forget, our District Christmas Party is set, see the flyer on the back of the newsletter.
