Friday morning I got up and followed my 73 year old Dad to The Tractor Show put on by the Murray County Antique Tractor and Implement Association. I have always called it the "Sulphur Tractor Show" but apparently I was wrong in the name. It takes place near Highway 177 north of Sulphur. I obviously didn't know where it was because as we left and I followed my Dad I felt like obviously he was lost and had forgot how to get there. He wasn't lost. I wouldn't have found it without him. I would have found it though, if I would have gotten on the website. I spent part of my childhood going to tractor shows and swap meets, so it brings back memories.

Friday at the Tractor Show was filled with school children. The club had people working hard putting on demonstration after demonstration of agricultural history. Events such as this are living history. The kids experienced picking corn and husking it and shucking it to having it ground into meal, they had a threshing machine threshing wheat. Some of the other exhibits were a blacksmith, soap maker, broom maker, and a water wheel.
