To the old farmer

AuntiE Loc: 45th Least Free State
 
To the old farmer driving his tractor down the road today. I saw you waving at me to pass you when it was clear, I saw you tip your hat and wipe the sweat from your forehead and I saw the sweat running down the back of your shirt. Don't worry about me being behind you, I'm just going to follow you with my hazard lights on until you turn off.

When you turned your head back the second time and saw my hazard lights on and waved a thank you to me, it made me smile. I'll keep you safe because I appreciate how hard you work to make a living. I know you're up before me and I know your still working when I'm resting at home. I'm okay driving a little slower and taking in all the fields that you work. They're perfect just like you.
Thank you for slowing me down so I can reflect on the importance of what you do and what you bring to the table.

You just keep driving Sir and I'll just keep following.

For people who complain about farmers: Don’t do it with your mouth full of food.

I always respect farmers -- when in the country people going opposite directions stop to bull shoot . It is proper etiquette to stop a distance back and let them finish their conversation .

I don’t know how much good this does. People today are in a huge hurry. The speed limit is 75 but they go 90. Top speed for most equipment is 18 to 25. Flashing lights and a machine that is obviously using most or all of the road doesn’t slow them down a whole lot.

Tom you are a great man. I think you may be one of five who feels this way. Personally when I encounter this situation I go right up and put my two cents in.
