Conversation overheard between two twenty something southern men as I snapped this photo at the Praters Mill Country Fair in Dalton, Georgia:
“No idea, what a waste” his bubba replied, shaking his head in disgust.
“Because it belongs to a woman,” I interjected cheerfully. “See, her name is on it, Terri.”
“No way”, they both chimed, incredulous that it could belong to a female. They seemed clueless.
Professor Bill came to the rescue, trying to help their understanding. “A man painted it pink so he can put his wife to work.”
“Ridiculous” was their parting thought as they muttered under their breath.
Oh my, chauvinism is alive and thriving in rural America, sadly. Maybe Miss Terri is a breast cancer survivor or just a woman who loves pink and enjoys asserting her femininity. That there is one mighty fine pink tractor, Terri!
