How to Earn Wife Points

Step #1:  make sure your secret Saturday destination is full of tractors

Like this one

Or this one

Or even this one that I dubbed "the racing tractor".

Step #2: tell your husband he can have the one with all the bells and whistles. (That joke was for you, Dad.)

Step #3: make sure there is good food there, like amazing steamed, butter-dipped corn-on-the-cob.

Step #4: be willing to get dirty.  A tractor show is no place for prissy wives.  Returning home in desperate need of a shower but without complaint earned extra points. 

Step #5: remind The Mister that he is, if only on occasion, a man on a tractor and keep the dream alive that someday he will have his own hay field.
