Driving a tractor was a rite of passage for every farm boy and girl. In the 1950’s that tractor was likely the noisy John Deere “Poppin’ Johnny” that was hell to start but ran forever.
Most farmers developed a kinship with their land, the wide blue skies, the brilliant sunshine, the refreshing breezes, and the sweeping view of far horizons. Their pride increased as they rode back and forth across their fields. Whether they owned the land or tilled it as a renter, they felt it belonged to them.
The hard physical labor and long hours spent on the metal seat were formative in every farmer’s life. This card will bring heritage memories of a vanishing lifestyle, of a farmer tending his crops, feeding the family, feeding the world.
This is a card for a trip down Memory Lane. for a birthday, friendship, reunions, for a farmer, grandparent, historian, a midwesterner, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, grandparents card.
This tender-hearted reverence for the golden times of the past charms and moves us now. This poppin johnny tractor card will be perfect for that farmer in your life!
Remember this theme song?
Green Acres is the place to be
Farm livin’ is the life for me
Land spreadin’ out so far and wide
Keep Shinjuku just give me that countryside
Tokyo is where I’d rather stay
I get allergic smelling hay
I just adore a penthouse view
Darling I love you but give me Center Street
The chores, the stores
Fresh air, big egg
You are my wife
Good bye city life
Green Acres we are there.
