In a Rut

Singing at county fairs is always a treat -- and adventure! Last night we set up at the large grandstand in Oskaloosa, Iowa, We were just following the horse show and school bus races. Yes, I did say 'school bus' races. I really should have captured a picture of the brightly painted buses sitting on the large racetrack!

But last night we ended up with a bit more 'adventure' than we'd planned. With all the rain lately, our bus literally sank into the soft grass.

Pulling a bus is a bit more complicated than your typical vehicle. But thankfully, we were at a county fair -- where help is available for most towing issues:

Problem solved!

"Oh, give thanks to the LORD! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples!"
Psalm 105:1

Oh no! I'm glad that you were able to have some help getting out of the situation! And I have never heard of school bus racing! Interesting...

Of course it was a red tractor! Oh Loren, if only it had been green,

Arnie... they were going to use a green tractor, but it just happen to be BROKE DOWN!!! :-)

LorenW-
I'm surprised the red tractor could manage that without breaking down! The green one didn't want to embarras the red one.

Problem solved - no kidding! That tractor looks like it could pull a couple busses together! :)

God bless,
Daniel
