I found this photo of my father the other day. Here he is on the tractor doing a bit of crop spraying with some sort of home made set up by the look of it. Not a mask in sight. Or goggles. I suppose he was doing this before we were all born. Wonder we're not deformed in some hideous ways.
He's had to have a lot of skin cancers burnt off his face lately. Due to all those hours sitting on a tractor many years ago. We did eventually buy a tractor with a cabin when they came on the market. he hated it at first. Said he couldn't see anything. He used to drive along with the door open leaning out looking around. It had a tape deck in it and he knocked the box with all the tapes out the door then ran over it. He got used to it though. I think it had airconditioning. We thought it was pretty luxurious when we first saw it.
