A Question for the Ladies!

Does your husband collect old tractors? If so, did/do you understand or is this just a Guy thing!

You may have figured out by reading this that the Old Iron Bug has bitten me! My wife thinks Iím out of control and out of my mind! She is really upset with me!

I was bitten last fall and have decided that I am going to collect tractors that represent examples of what we had when I was a kid (45 or more years ago) on the farm.

I cannot use any of these tractors (we live in town). I already have 2 and seriously looking at 3-4 more. And I've aquired a trailer to haul them on. I hope I will stop buying before I run out of room in my shop to store them! I may take some of them to local shows or have them in parades. Mostly just putt around with them.

We all know that there are worse things that one can spend money on than spend it on old tractors. As long as I care for them, they will always have value, even if it is in my estate after Iím gone.

Can anyone help me to explain to my wife of 40 years why I have/want to do this? I guess at this point I really donít understand either but it feels good/right.

Thanks for your responses.
