I am absolutely delighted with the article in the Ozarks Mountaineer. Watching Daddy Pull is an article about my dad and his tractor, Lonesome George. Yes, the tractor has a name. The article also tells a little of the history of tractor pulling.
I hope you enjoy reading the story as much as I did writing it.
The story was written as a contest entry for the Ozarks Creative Writers conference last fall. (2010) Although it didn't win anything at the conference, I sent it to the Ozarks Mountaineer and the editor asked me to add a little of the history to it.
So never be discouraged if you don't win. Your story might still be a winner. This is not the first time my contest entries have gone on to be published, and I'm not through by a long shot.
