The old John Deere
J.D. Hatley and I were married in 1949. He and his father, Ida Gaston Hatley, purchased this tractor in 1950. Our children — David, Glenn and Mary Ann — grew up loving the tractor. Pictured here is our son Glenn and his grandson Silas Almond plowing Granny's garden. The tractor is older than Silas, his mama, his Paw Paw, uncles and aunts, but it isn't as old as Granny.
