He is an old guy that "drives" an ancient seed planter type mini tractor and Tikki hears him coming from up the road. She seems to know that he will go past to go across the road to put mail in the mailboxes, and hears him when he has done and will be going home. Maybe a few houses up the road from me. But as soon as she hears him on the way back she gets so excited, hoping that he will stop outside if he has parcels or packets for me. She adores him but the tragedy is that he just ignores her and will not pet her, and it is not that he does not like dogs because he has four of his own. And poor little Tikki looks so unhappy because she is desperately in love with him!
