Threshing Fest

Yep, I wondered what the hell too. It was actually called the Moynalty Steam Threshing Festival. Green was in seventh heaven. “Just like Nebraska.” says he. Well, when you’re in rural Ireland at a Festival you got to check out the tractors:

Tractors

The old cars (This is like my first car. Yes, I’m serious.):

Morris Minor 1000

The animals:
Baa

Cluck cluck

and of course, the steam engines:
Puff Puff

which they use to thresh separate the grain from the straw.

Not a sight you see in Tucson.
