Hi Richard. I don't know about driving a tractor to Canada but remember George Jones drove his lawnmower to the liquor store to buy booze because his wife hid the keys to all the cars. I also heard he stopped and mowed a couple of yards on the way to get beer money. But I can't prove that one. That was mentioned in the Vince Gill song "One More Last Time". I used to play in a band and one of Georges guitar players used to sit in with us ever once in a while. Heck of a country picker too. He said he was with George in the bus when George accidentally shot his pistol off in the bus. He mentioned "it was loud". If I ever make up near the far north again I will get in touch with you. Thanks a bunch.
