Chuckle, well, just as long as you're not from below sea level (I used to fly DC-10s into Schiphol at Amsterdam, still can visualize those diked fields we used to look at on the ground beneath us there).

best, randy

Well, we are below sea level. The church of our village is about 2.5 ft under sea level. It's called the polders. Very good soil. My house is built on a dike.

Hope you had a good time over here in the USA. The toy picture made me smile a little. Neighbor down the road passed away a month ago at 71 from diabetes. He was big IHC guy and ran super Ms with farmhands for snow removal in town.He had a toy with farmhand but was allis chalmers not IH. He mounted it on a toy Super m. My little brother had the real M with farmhand toy from his godfather who was a farmhand parts dealer. Neighbor always wanted to trade his put together toy with allis for the real M toy in box. He had the toy M farmhand on his casket at funeral. Just picture of toys made me think of him and smile a little.
