Frugal Farmer

When  married to a thrifty, frugal (cheap?) farmer, I never know what will happen next. 
Recently, Hubby found a flat on a small 2 wheeled trailer that he uses around the farm, hauling assorted "stuff."   Not wanting to pay for a cheap used tire somewhere, he remembered one that was near the pasture fence, that still held air.
And that brings the interesting aside:  Why was the tire, that still held air. next to the ditch, near the pasture in the first place?  How long had it been there?  Well apparently for a while.
Hubby needed the hydralics to fetch the tire to to barn.  And here is why.
Yes, thats right.  There is a tree growing through  the rim of the tire.
Here is a better angle.
So Hubby cut and pried and pulled.  And finally he got it out.
It didn't fit.

I admit his frugal efforts, it might have paid off :)
