Out of Service, In Service

 Out of service

This rusty, old tractor is sitting in front a building in the Holland Marsh, a former marsh that was drained about a century ago for growing vegetables. A small portion of this growing area is in East Gwillimbury. This tractor looks like it may have been one of the earliest tractors to work the surrounding fields, dontcha think?

In Service

I'm not sure how old this Santa actually is (his voice sounded kinda young) but he sure does LOOK old!
In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I  am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.

White Christmas?

 A week ago

Until a few days ago, it looked like we might have a white Christmas this year.

We'd had a snowfall deep enough to shovel but since then much of the snow has melted away. And now the weather forecasters are calling for rain. The good news is no one has to shovel rain. I'm just hoping it doesn't turn out to be freeing rain!

Yesterday a  dad and his son were feeding chickadees when a hairy woodpecker decided it was brave enough to eat out of dad's hand too!
