Dear Tina,

Pa's tractor reminds me an old story when we lived in the countryside.
In the middle of nowhere with plenty of woods and farmland. My father
used to hunt there. Remember Tom Sawayer?
>From time to time, usually in the summer, some city folks parked and
camped on our property. Most of them went away when we politely asked
them to leave.
One day we saw a whole bunch of noisy city folks arriving with a huge
camping car. When we asked them to leave they used more than rough
language and gestures.
In no time the place was filled with al sorts of garbage.

The solution looked simple to me. Guess wat followed next. Instead of
taking one of pa's riffles, I went to one of our friendly neighbours,
a farmer who of course had such machines and who didn't like these
invasions at all. When I asked him to dig a large and deep ditch
cutting off their way to the next road, he agreed with a large smile.
The job was done in no time. I was realy impressed by his job.

A day or so later these campers tried to go home.... and discovered
the problem. They asked us for help. We told them to clean the whole
place and pay the farmer. So they did and never came back.

Don't tell Pa.

Regards Cedric
