Dad's Old Red Case Leaving the Farm

I was raised on a hill side farm in eastern kentucky. I have four brothers and six sisters, my Father was a tobacco farmer and we were share croppers in tobacco. My father owned and old fifty case with the front wheels that are close together. that old case had been there as long as I can recall in fact I dont rember dad getting the tractor, we sort of grew up with that faithful old case and ever two or three years dad would have to ring it for futher use.. boys back then money was as scarce as hens teeth and we worked hard in the tobacco fields as familys did in those days..that old tractor served us well and it was in the late seventys when dad got a hold of a little extra money and bought a ford 2000 and then I thought we was rich having a tractor with a wide front end, Dad sold the old case to a man in hazzard kentucky, he was going to use in to pull saw logs to his sawmill, and I rember well the day the old hazzard man come with a truck to load and haul the old case away to another country, dad helped him laod that old red case as us kids all watched in curiousity, well to make a long story a little shorter, when the man was heading off down the one lane road that lead off our steep farm land. I rember looking at dad face and guess what I seen for my first time I seen tears in my poor old ragged daddies eyes. it stuned me for pap wasnt,t not a man to show his emotions like most old time farmer are even today they are a different breed of men.. I guess all those faithful years of useing that old hunk of a red case and how faithful it had been to him as a poor tobacco farmer was the reason I guess that I seen the first time tears boil out of my daddy wrinkled face .. im fifty five now and I can still hear that old faithful case in my memories turning the tobacco grown that our family live on and depended on, I hope you injoyed my story which is the truth and to say this in honor of my dear departed dad that I have new a lot of swell men in my life but none comes close to my hard working father who used the old case 1950 to raise us all and to him and all farmer I say thank to the men of the fields and tractors, comment would be oblidged mcqueen@mail.com
