When Lloyd was young his family lived in a rural community called Harvey Station, New Brunswick. Their home was surrounded by acres of farm land so his parents invested in cows, an infamous nasty bull, a dog, cats and chickens. Lloyd loved the years spent on the farm in spite of the chores that fell to him to complete. For one thing, almost before he could reach the pedals, he was allowed to drive the tractor. Such freedom and responsibility! He loved it.
When he was 14 his family left the farm for the 'big' city of Fredericton, and he never had the chance to live on a farm again.
When one of our city-raised daughters took her city-raised sons to a farm museum in rural Alberta, her #4 son, Micah, discovered that he too loved 'driving' a tractor.
