Reynard Gilbert mows his neighbor’s field Wednesday with his 1958 Massey Ferguson tractor in Turner. “It gives me a chance to play with my old antique tractor,” Gilbert said about helping out his neighbor. “I haven’t had it out all winter and it isn’t running so good. I need to do some tinkering with it.” Other than the six months that Gilbert spend at Fort Dix for basic training while in the U.S. Army, the 76-year-old has lived in Turner his entire life. “I drove a truck for 41 years and retired eight years ago. Just dubbing around now,” said Gilbert. Daryn Slover/Sun Journal Buy this Photo
