Typo doesn't ruin field tractor proposal

Dec. 11, 2012 at 1:53 PM

DEER PARK, Wash., Dec. 11 (UPI) -- A Washington state farmer said a typo in the proposal message he wrote using a tractor on his 200-acre field did not stop his girlfriend from saying "yes."

Loren Lentz said he spent an hour and a half plowing the message into his Deer Park field and his 10-year-old daughter was the first to notice he had used a backwards "J" to spell "Jody," KREM-TV, Spokane, Wash., reported Tuesday.

Lentz said he thought his daughter was mistaken, but when he took his girlfriend, Jody Schaefer, up in an airplane to get a look at the proposal he realized the girl had been right.

However, he said Schaefer still accepted his proposal.

"Had the ring in my hand at that point and turned around and handed her the ring and she gave me a great big hug over the seat," he said.
