Time for the 30th annual Tractor Parade in one of our most quaint local communities - the Victorian village of Ferndale. (Yes, it is probably true that each town in our county tries to "outdo" the others with unique - and sometimes bazar - Christmas events but it is pure pleasure to see what they come up with each year.) Farmers and ranchers all over the Valley decorate tractors and horse-drawn carts and floats in local themes to ride down Main Street. It is quite a sight!
So it was obvious that Pat would use the Tractor Parade as the inspiration to this week's Christmas table....
