Critter, it's a lot of fun to learn to drive a tractor. There are only a couple of levers you really need, plus the brake, LOL.
TJ, that is super news about your lesson! Sounds like you're getting along fabulously! I love how Tommy knew you might be unsure and carefully stopped to make sure you were okay. He's a keeper! I work with therapeutic riding and hippotherapy horses as a volunteer and am always amazed at how sensitive they are to the kids' balance and moods.
I'm still here, haven't even had time to check out the over 50 site, LOL.
