When I first moved to the country I was in awe of the big machinery on the road, then I'd get frustrated because I could never overtake, now the shoe's on the other foot and I love it, I move over to give the Header enough room, I sit patiently behind until I am able to overtake and think how lucky we are to live where we live and be a part of something as exciting as harvest (I will NOT be saying this in the next drought, or if it rains and floods like last year, but for now it's all good).
The other thing that's important (especially if you ask a 4 year old) is what colour is your header? Do you have a Green header, a Red header or a Yellow header or another colour entirely. For Us, we're Green - John Deere, and trust me, it takes a lot to change colour, especially if you've had a green one for as long as Muddy Hubby can remember! As we start to get geared up for harvest there's an excitement in the air, it really is a great time of year! (Ask me again in 2 weeks and I will probably have a totally different response)
