No Gnomes Here

I am very fortunate to work with a team of people at John Deere, who are tight-knit and also very good friends. It affords us the opportunity to really have a lot of fun when we are together, and we look forward to meetings and events as a result. I don't think we have anything truly special. It's always the people that make the difference. I heard quoted once; "I won't miss the zoo, but I'll miss the animals." We have great animals.

Speaking of animals, we recently welcomed a new animal to our team, literally.

'Gainer' the gopher, is known to most flat-landers as the mascot for the Saskatchewan Roughriders football team. Like Santa Claus, he has many helpers all over the country, including this Gainer, who grew up in our Canadian manager's golf bag. Last week, Gainer decided to venture out into the world on his own, checking out of the hotel and leaving life in the golf bag behind.

Thus, begins the adventures of Gainer...
