Tractor Collector “10” Commandments

July 25th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Thou shalt not store thy tractor out of doors, except for thy modern iron.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors tractor, nor his shop, nor his battery charger.
Thou shalt not love thy tractor more than the wife and children; as much, but not more.
Thou shalt not read Antique Power on company time, for thy employer makes it possible to continue thy tool payments.
Thou shalt not despise thy neighbor’s Farmall, nor his John Deere, nor even his 2N on steel.
Thou shalt not allow thy daughters nor thy sons to get married during the holy days of the national tractor convention.
Thou shalt not deceive thy wife into thinking that thou art taking her for a romantic Sunday drive when indeed, thou art going to look at another tractor.
Thou shalt not promise thy wife a new addition to thy house then use it to store tractors.
Thou shalt not tell thy spouse the entire cost of the restoration, at least not at the same time.
Thou shalt not buy the wife a floor jack for Christmas.

    This reminds me of the commandment, “Thou shall not tell thy wife that you are taking her to Paris for a romantic weekend when really you are going to the Paris Agricultural Show!”
    This really did happen to me, we went to Paris the most romantic city in the world and eneded up at the Agricultural show.
