This is the view from my bedroom window this morning. It's an annual ploughing match, run by 'MVMA', the Malpas Vintage Machinery Association. Sometimes the match is just across the road, but today it's across one field.

You might think there'd be plenty of material here, but most things to be seen aren't dilapidated enough for us, and I had to hunt with binoculars before setting out across the field.

This was the only suitable entrant I could spot immediately, so I interrupted Sunday lunch preparation and rushed over. I think this one is a bit dilapidated (just like me)and the tractor's seen better days as well.

Yeah, I thought about posting a pic of my knees as an example of dilapidation, but then I remembered the term "graceful" in the challenge descriptor.

Nice tractor shot.

Alan,

I bit iffish but with the collection of tools just hanging off the body of the tractor it is obvious this one is growing old, don't know about gracefully. I'd say more like reluctantly.

Aloha
