The Farmer’s Frosty Morning Friend!


Jump LeadsYesterday morning was one of the coldest so far this winter. The tractor that was parked in the barn, blocking all other machines, refused to start. I felt the same and was tempted to attach the jump leads to my terminals to kick-start my day! However it looked somewhat painful so I connected them to the tractor battery and prayed…

The tractor won’t start and I feel sick.
The frost outside is hard and white,
Should have charged the battery overnight.
I attach the leads and cross my fingers,
and rue the doubt that still lingers.
Up into the cab and turn the key,
The engine roars that’ll suit me!
A good set of jump leads – the farmer’s friend,
If only life’s problems were as easy to mend!
