New Frost, Old Steel

This vintage 1942 (we think)  International truck cab rests in peace on a neighbor's place. In its day,  it was probably some farmer's pride and joy.

I'm not sure how old this pitchfork is. Its tines are asymmetrical and bend too easily now, but it vies with my special irrigating shovel for the title of Robin's Favorite Tool.

This wheel is off a horse-drawn manure spreader, which actually required a team of horses to pull. Our manure spreader is tractor-drawn, so the wheel is a landscaping piece.

Hubby used these shearing blades to fit his sheep for the fair (see below).

(No frost in this picture, but it's vintage and goes with the shearing blades one.) Hubby won the 4-H showmanship class at the fair with this fat lamb from his Hampshire herd. He says that he'd card out and trim his lambs around 15 times over a two-week period prior to a show. 


"God is the God of 'right now.' He doesn't want you sitting around regretting yesterday. Nor does He want you wringing your hands and worrying about the future. He wants you focusing on what He is saying to you and putting in front of you...right now." ~Priscilla Schirer
