I was driving up the driveway the other day when our harvest crew were moving to another paddock some kilometres away. The headers were all moving along in convoy, so I grabbed this photo as they trundled past. Each header tows its 'front' when it moves along. The 'front' is the bit that cuts the crop and feeds it into the machine itself. It is called a 'front' because it is usually attached to the front of the header. And the header is called a header because it cuts the heads off the crop. We love simple nomenclature when it comes to farm machinery.

In other news there has been a change of bedtime routine on The Farm. We have finally coaxed Farmgirl into giving her night time dummy to the dummy fairy. This was a huge adventure but we got there in the end. The problem is that Farmgirl has now formed an attachment to a different sleep prop. She has decided she needs music to go to sleep to. And not just any music, she needs Kenny Rogers. And not just any Kenny Rogers, she needs this song. Over and over and over again.
Sing me a song sweet music man...
