An "Alice" moment, doesn't refer to Logan's preoccupation with a girlfriend, but rather to his obsession with an Allis Chalmers WD45 tractor.
Last week, the boys and Uncle Paul, with truck and trailer, ventured to southern Ohio to purchase a project tractor for Logan. His older brothers assured Logan that the tractor was a good deal. It was such a good deal that it was the topic of conversation at the table for several meals. After a few days, the older boys can talk of other matters, but Logan appears hopelessly smitten.
