John Deere

Backhoe Life

After I quit the highways job I worked Dave Colley’s backhoe for a couple of years. Then I ran Ted Wadland’s machine for quite a while. I began advertising in the First Edition using some skills I’d learned in a former life. Anybody out there remember Letraset?

Ted and I had a good relationship. Each day after I drove into the yard finished work Jean Wadland would fix me a nice gin and Tonic. Ah, those were the days!

  1. Now thats what I’d call a boss with a good understanding of what makes a happy employee,the world needs more of them (:

  2. Ah, Letraset! We had a filing cabinet FULL of it.
    Those were the days when designers needed skill, precision and a good eye for spacing.
    Nice ad, Bob.
