Looking for a tractor looking for a home

On our last day in Ireland our son took us to Avoca which is a collection of boutiques all under one roof but sharing some of the costs. For instance, you can pay for whatever you purchase at any till in the store although each section is a separate entity. Our son gave Vince a lovely cap which he bought in Avoca. Unfortunately it has gone missing. We left it in a church in France but went back and found it again. This time I think it must have got left in a café in New Ross although we’ve checked with every place we can think of. Anyway we went back there and have bought another although obviously we paid for this one ourselves. I liked the tractors out the front and the sign looking for another. It’s a pity the tyres are all flat.

Funny colors for tractors, hats are like umbrellas, they disappear easily.

They are odd colours for sure. We were trying really hard not to lose this cap as it was a gift.

@JudyEv I am sure you tried really hard, but it's so easy to take it down and to forget somewhere.

@LadyDuck This is the third one he's lost. Maybe we just need to get used to it!

@judyev Hats tend to go that way, a bit like cats.

Yes, that's true. This one was a bit special though so it's a shame it's been lost.

@JudyEv Holidays provide an excellent opportunity to lose things.

What colors are tractors usually? These don't look normal. Read a few comments about the unusual colors on them. They don't look like they are the proper color?

They are just there for decoration. You wouldn't normally see tractors that colour.

@JudyEv - Amazing old tractors! I'm sorry Vince lost his cap, but glad you were able to replace it!

I think we probably need to get used to the thought that caps are going to be lost periodically.

Yes you'd think they would have fixed those tires before trying to sell- I like the way you spell tires. Is this you or an Australian way of spelling it?

That's Australian/English(?) spelling. The tractors aren't for sale - just for decoration. I should have made that clearer.

We've left a trail of caps over the years, my husband is also notorious for leaving jackets behind.

This particular one was a gift from our son and relatively expensive so Vince is a bit upset about losing it. We were trying to be so careful with it too.

A cap gets lost very frequently just as a hankie, I could not count the caps that my son lost so I wonder when he would stop buying expensive caps only to have it lost again. Are the tyres not replaceable?

The tyres are replaceable but it would be too expensive to replace tyres just on a decorative tractor.

Its always sad to lose something given as a gift. I am glad you got another one before you left and I hope the person wearing the FOUND cap knows how much love it was lost with.

I like creative signs - much more interesting than 'straight' ones.

They are just for decoration but yes, it is pretty. Might look a bit funny pulling a plough though.

If you keep a cap on your head, it will seldom go missing!

He takes it off inside though, especially in churches. And then puts it down while he takes photos. And then walks off without it!

I never would have noticed that the tires are flat had you not pointed it out. I'm not very observant at times.

I walked right in front of them and first noticed the tyres on the pink one. I had to check the photo before mentioning it.
