My World Tuesday

My second offering for the new and exciting 'Skywatch' team project - My World Tuesday, focuses on another local industry - Agriculture.

Many visitors to Oklahoma expect our main industry to be agriculture and are surprised to find it's not. Oil and Natural Gas production is our leading industry and has been for many years.

But Agriculture, Ranching and Farming are still high on the list and this is easily spotted on any drive through our State. Many of the people I know here are involved in this industry and the Hubsters business is very much on the fringes of it.

On a recent visit to a Ranch and Farming museum this was demonstrated by the huge range of implements and tools on display. Included amongst them was this wall of tractor seats, but who knew there were so many different designs! I wonder if you were judged by others on the design intracacy of your tractor seat once upon a time? Is there an Armani of the tractor seat world somewhere out there, commanding crazy prices on eBay?

But of course being a girly I was seriously drawn to this wonderful and colourful display of seats. Oh the choices, but I think it would be the sage green with the royal blue 'Bradley' logo for me!

Thanks for visiting my site. This My World meme shows a lot of differences and a lot of similarities. Living in a farming area in souther Indiana I can sure relate to the old tractor seats. Do you have a lot of people restoring old tractors?

Original story :-) about tractor seat. Unfortunately, I haven't seen Croatian tractor seat designers, so I'm impressed to see so many various seats. Thank you for your visit and greetings from Croatia.
