John Deere Man

There is a man at church named Roger who is, as my Dad would say, "Superfantastic!" He's in charge of maintenance, including property, church buses, etc. My son Hagan has been working for the church this summer (as has his buddy in the photo below), in a role that amounts to an apprenticeship under Roger's tutelage. Anyway, Roger, who says he doesn't trust too many others with his John Deere, taught the boys how to drive it and use the implements on it. In his words, they are now "certified" on it! And since Roger is an Iowa man, his seal of approval means something!
