So why would a butterfly farmer collect old toy rubber tractors?
Years ago, my sister Anne and I spent many an hour playing in the sand and dust at the farm. We played a game we call "state park" with old rubber animals, people, cars, trucks and tractors. The tractors were my favorites even though they were all missing wheels, drivers’ heads, etc.
Now I look at my collection and think of those days and count my blessings.
