Those women in that bucket are wonderful people. As is the man driving his tractor who used his personal time to ensure, along with many others, that the people of this wonderful little town were safe. You need to be special to fit in here.

The picture of those three in the bucket of that tractor is TYPICAL Chelsea mentality. It's exactly why I left years ago.
