    Yesterday our local Purdue Ag Center Farm celebrated 100 years of operation. Many displays of things done there over the last 100 years were on display. I was in charge of putting on a tractor display, so I rounded up 25 tractors from that timeline of all colors to display. Turned out really nice. The interesting thing to me was the fact that that I was able to secure a 1918 Mogal and a 2020 CIH 340 prototype half track. There are only 6 of them and they are all hand made and were first shown at Louisville last February. Just so happened our local dealer got their hands on one for the next week to play with and they brought it up for me. My buddy that owns the Mogal thought it would be neat to get some photos of the old vs. the new. jerry

    I just finished this project and thought I would post some pictures of it. It had spun #4 rod bearing and had some pretty severe scoring. Ended up grinding the crank bore and sleeving #4 and #6 holes in the block due to cavitation and completely redoing the head. Got to be a big project but it turned out really well. This is the first 66 series that I have had that the a/c blows cold and the factory radio works. It’s even got an 8 track player. Enjoy.

    She went away, again, to visit her family for 3 or 4 days. Forget. Guess she expected balloons and noisemakers upon her return. I was watching Pulp Fiction dvd, never saw it before, weird movie. We exchanged "hellos" as she began her examination of the house to see what I did/didn`t do, what I ate/didn`t eat etc. She opened a bottle of water and I asked why she didn`t get water from the Culligan dispenser. That started it. After the "discussions" calmed, I asked her if she was going to the basement for anything and she replied "Why?" I said because there were 2 baskets of dirty clothes to do and I wanted to wear a particular shirt on Monday that was dirty. She stood up and stepped between me and the TV and just stared. Scary stuff for sure, scarier than the blood and gore of the movie! When I came in from the barn this am she was coming up from the basement. "What dirty clothes?" she asked. Oh, I was just kidding you, I replied. Came to work today with no lunch packed... No sense of humor....sigh.

    Was helping a friend with first crop. His 886 with M&W turbo on the blower and my 856 with M&w turbo on the copper box. Yeild wasn't that good for first crop. 8 loads off of 20 Acer's that didn't completely have winter kill.

    Here I go lighting fires from ashes. I think alot of the problems with todays "modern mindset" is that people are so oblivious/arrogant/caught in self promotion to think back to the (not so long ago) worldly struggles that made it possible for us to be who we are and where we are today. Take the example of tossing the America flag to the ground, only 2/3 generations ago we (WWII) were carrying that same flag into the dragons den (occupied europe). Why did we? We could have watched and done nothing, Many nations couldn't. We acted for whats morally right not whats "politically correct" or what was easy or even practical. We carried the flag because there were whole nations, whole populations who couldn't sand alone in the face of evil. TO THIS DAY we continue to to back those in need, domestic and abroad we one nation under god are there. THE FLAG IS THERE!!! Many have given all for the flag, and for the right to be free. THE LEAST we can do to respect our fallen,wounded,active,retired peace keepers (not just limited to the military) is RESPECT THE FLAG AND ALL IT STANDS FOR. That is why we stand for our national anthem and fly our flag high. I apologize for the long scrambled rant. Call me what you will its my beliefs and its who I am. I wish we could step back from todays garbage and games and look at the big picture. Im really scared to see where my generation will be in another decade... Look out world. So in conclusion to my thoughts about the flag. Fly it with honor. Hang it with respect. Or fold it with integrity.

    So this wasn't a surprise to Mrs. Shooter and myself, because the young man came to ask our blessing. But (not so) little shooter #1 is going to be getting married! Best part is neither one of them are extravagant people. She is actually thinking about doing a machine shed wedding! Going to be an interesting next year. One getting married, the last one graduating high school, and me retiring from the Army! Now I really need to get the new shed built!

    My new barn that we’ve built over the last year. There are still some final touches that need done (finishing wiring, last minute trim work, etc.). It’s 44x60 with a 20x60 second story. It was built to be able to park up to 6 loaded hay wagons in the center section; hence the full size doors with big strap hinges.

    Even though I am no cowboy-----there are other alternatives. Way back in the early '70s-----one of my men on the farm called early one morning saying he was going to be a few minutes late to work. His steer had been out most of the night------but he had just caught him. I commented thats good Billy------how did you finally catch him?? Answer was: "with my 30.06-----I just need some time to get the baztard cut-up and in the freezer!!!!"😂 DD

    Because of my exceptional hand eye coordination 🙄 I somehow managed to click on the "online users" button by accident. I noticed there were 5 registered users (including myself) and 25 guests perusing the forums. I would like to invite you guests to take a minute and register / sign up for the RPF. You probably have something to add to this site and we always like new members and the stories and pictures you bring. It's a real good family here and we would like to hear from you. 😀 Besides everyone here is getting tired of my sh......tuff.🤪 So climb on up, get on board and lets hear from you. 😄

    Years ago, a young Navy Pilot was injured while ejecting from his A-4 Skyhawk due to engine failure during a catapult shot from the carrier. Due to the heroics of rescue helicopter crew and the ship's hospital staff, the only permanent injury was the loss of one ear. He remained on flight status and eventually became an Admiral. However, during his career he was always sensitive about his appearance. One day the Admiral was interviewing two Navy Master Chiefs and a Marine Sergeant Major for his personal staff. The first Master Chief was a Surface Navy type and it was a great interview. At the end of the interview the Admiral asked him, "Do you notice anything different about me?" The Master Chief answered, "Why, yes, Admiral. I couldn't help but notice that you are missing your starboard ear, so I don't know whether this impacts your hearing on that side." The Admiral got very angry at this lack of tact and threw him out of his office. The next candidate, an Aviation Master Chief, when asked this same question,answered, "Well yes, Sir, you seem to be short one ear." The Admiral threw him out as well. The third interview was with the Marine Sergeant Major. He was articulate, extremely sharp, and seemed to know more than the two Navy Master Chiefs put together. The Admiral wanted this guy but went ahead with the same question. "Do you notice anything different about me?" To his surprise, the Sergeant Major said, "Yes Sir. You wear contact lenses." The Admiral, impressed thought to himself, what an incredibly tactful Marine. "And how would you know that?" the Admiral asked. The Sergeant Major replied: "Well, sir, it's pretty hard to wear glasses with only one ear. "

    Hi all, I've been reading as much as I can on here over the past couple of years, and have found this to be the best place to go for any info I need. I've always had a weak spot for the 66 series and 86 series for some reason, even though I mostly grew up around Deere's as a kid. I figured I would tell a little bit about myself. After the original farmstead (1919) was sold out of the family in 1998, I finally had the chance to buy it back in 2018 after 20 years of neglect. We have 26 acres and dad own's the rest of the half section which we pasture and make hay on. We just started running sheep last year and have grown the flock to 200 this spring with 120 set to start lambing in about 2 weeks. Last family member to farm full time was Grandpa, but I'm lucky enough to be getting into it. First tractor I bought was a 766 with a Hinson cab on it, I use it everyday for chores and feeding. I'll try and upload any pics of the operation for those that might be interested. Thanks!

    Borrowed the neighbor’s loader tractor to move some hay since mine is getting worked on. Snapped a few pics in his shed. He sold two this year, he used to have a full set of 56’s.

    Someone had to film the boy running the tractor. He was NOT unsupervised. That said, you can't sit there and say this is dangerous and bad, and in the same breath, complain about kids not wanting to take over the farm, or sitting in the house playing video games all day, or being worthless adults that don't know how to do anything. Being allowed to do something cool like this at a young age is what sparks interest. Sure they will get a bump or a scrape here and there, and screw up from time to time, but that's how you LEARN. Keep them cooped up in the house until they're 16, then plunk them in the seat of a tractor and expect perfection, then yell at them when they don't know what they're doing right off the bat... That seems to be the prevailing attitude of the day, and you wonder why the average age of farmers is 60-something...
