  1. You can’t compare the current state of Affairs to the 70’s. 80’s. And 90’s people back then knew what gender they were , social media hadn't been invented so there was no platform for idiots to hide behind a keyboard, libtards had less of an influence on the meek and undereducated. It’s a whole new world now and new isn’t always better.

  5. Hope every one of my friends on the forum enjoys a Happy Thanksgiving with family. Drive safe! And please take time to remember in your prayers those who can't be with their families, sacrificing to keep us safe so we may enjoy the many blessings that comfort us daily.

  7. Had a little plow day last weekend. Fired up my 1066 and got my 710 5-16 out of the shed and had a blast. Amazing weather and the ground worked great. Wonderful day with friends!

  9. Some time back I was asked about the four valves on one of our 1466's. Said I would share about that project. I had planned on always adding a third valve to this tractor as it used to be our loader tractor. When our restoration of this 14 began, there were several things we wanted to do before we actually started the painting. I got ready to work on the third valve project and jokingly said to the boys maybe we should put on four. I then said four won't fit anyway. That's when my boys started with well it can't be done anyway talk. Whenever I say something isn't doable they start in with the

  10. We had a warmer day yesterday, and the combine got washed off to put away. 2wd, 1983 model, but not sold until 1985. I'm the second family to own it, 12 years here. This is the first time in years that I have been done before Thanksgiving. The cats were all excited, because it was almost suppertime.

  13. For me the worst part of it is having to reset every clock in the house, shop, every truck and tractor around here! Then not remembering which ones were already changed or not because sometimes it takes a week or more to get through them all! For me it doesn’t matter if we were on standard or daylight saving time because pretty much 365 days of the year I see the sun rise and set! The only thing good about the shorter days is I don’t have to get up so early to see the sunrise or go to bed too late after seeing the sunset! LOL The first two pictures are of sunrise and the

  14. To paraphrase the late Ronald Reagan: "I think there is a group of people within our country who have set out with the sole purpose to divide us from within, weaken our spirits so that when the time comes for them to take control, we will be so defeated morally and spiritually from within we will be too tired to fight, and our surrender immenent." I think this group has been working to this end for several decades now, but only recently was able to gain major traction due to the big tech helping to support their agenda. Propoganda has been pushed and a great number have taken the bait. It i

  15. So......I drove over there today after changing a 2nd water heater I swear had 30 gallons of crap in it. I drove to this lady’s house and asked if she had time to talk. I had my work truck and uniform on, but I figured out she didn’t realize who I was. Until I politely asked what was going on. it went well, I explained myself and listened to her side. apparently the whole charges thing was mixed in translation (not being funny there). it took a little bit. We shook hands, wished a happy thanksgiving, and moving on.

  16. Red Tractor Fever and I purchased items on the same online auction (held by Aumann) on election night. We had a strategy to purchase just what would fit on his semi. He had never loaded a full trailer at a sale and wanted to check that off his list! Pickup day arrived and we jumped in his semi and headed to Maquoketa, IA. We had a scheduled load time of 11 AM. Soon, we were parked in the field adjacent to the highway and before we had all the chains and binders laid out, the Aumann staff stopped by and grabbed our load out tickets. Soon, our purchases began to stage near the traile

  17. Time for IH pictures again. I love all the IH stuff that gets used on all our great farms yet. I have a few I haven't shared before. Please feel free to add. Special request from Bill on the Farm to add as well. He tells me he has over 10,000 pictures and we ain't seen em all. Few from me and then let's see that IH stuff again y'all! Lot more fun than, well.......you know, other things in the current state of gloom.

  18. 2020 sure has been a challenge but as I was thinking today it hasn't been all bad...Here are some things that happened to me that were positive. I added another 12' of space to my garage to store my Cub Cadets and have a space to work on things- something I'd wanted to do for the past 9 years. I finally found a 73 that I had been looking for a while. We were still able to take a family vacation camping on the other side of the state. I attended two plow days; one in Alvordton Ohio

After my visit as I was getting in the car and I caught a whiff of it again so like a true addict I followed my nose. Went to the end of the road and found these

  22. I went to my dr yesterday for the follow-up after the er last week. He said my legs are healing good. I need a be sure to stretch it through its range of movement. I can work, etc as I like but to let pain be my guide on what, when and have much. I haven't taken any pain medication other than 3 ibuprofen tablets a day (to reduce swelling). He recommended Tylenol instead. No peg leg and eye patch yet! Thx-Ace

  24. This helps me get through every day. The last request is as least as important as the first two, at least for me. "God, please grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."

  26. During normal times, people don't think about the electric lineman. But during bad times, like tornadoes, thunderstorms, hurricanes and ice storms, they are out there just as quick and sometimes quicker than police, firemen and EMT's. And at times, their job is just as dangerous as the other first responders. lf you don't think so, try climbing a 40 foot pole covered in ice and the wind blowing 40 mph. A few days ago, we had a pretty good sized ice storm. The next day, even though it was still cold and no moisture was falling, the wind picked up. That caused the ice to start falling off t

  27. We were treated to a small local plow day on November 7th. We took the 1950 McCormick W4 and 1938 Farmall F-12. It was my oldest son's first time plowing, and the first time I did any serious plowing in heavy land with the F-12. Cam had fun, and so did I. The W4 always performs, the plow worked great, and the F-12 was very impressive!! I plowed in 2nd gear, 3/4 throttle and kept right up. (of course the F-12 isn't exactly stock on the inside hehe). There was also another nice W4, Cockshutt 35 and 30, MF 165, 35, Farmall H, M, and F-14. The ground was clay with red clover cover. Perfect weather

  29. yesterdays halloween project. found this 560 sitting in an old shed for over 30 years. the younger guy is cleaning up his parents yard site. the tractor is in remarkable condition for being 1959. quite happy with it, and the guy happy its going to a good home. it has only 2600 hrs on it, just amazing. rear rims are nice also due to being dry. all 4 tires were flat and sunk in like that. had to chip away at the frozen ground and jack it out. going to give it a bath today.

  30. I was walking by my M this morning and I got to thinking. Our country is looking a bit rough right now. On my M, many parts are worn, don't fit like they should, looks rough too and city people would say "Scrap it and buy something new and efficient." I won't, and rural folks won't "just scrap it". We will work on it, keep using and improving it, sometimes we will get bloodied and bruised working on it, but it will keep on going. It just needs love from us. It has weathered many storms outdoors, performed incredible amounts of work. It will continue to do so, and be better than bef

  31. Another topic for Uncle TP to vent on..................Sigh She is on the couch...............Your looking for thongs................In the kitchen...................Enough distance there for a zoom meeting So................ If she is on the couch, why are you in the kitchen? What do you need thongs for if your both home alone? Here is some advice from Uncle TP...................Take the thong, run it up the flag pole, join her on the couch, turn off John Goodman so you aren't distracted, and get on the function of solving the issues you had in previous posts.

  39. I don't want to get into a theological discussion because I'm not smart enough for that. But as a Christian who is not Catholic, 1 of my disagreements with the Catholic Church is the Pope, not just this Pope. I don't agree that a man elected by men should be able to decide what I should believe. I have the ability to read scripture and interpret it as the Holy Spirit leads me to do so.

  41. One of the things I discovered I enjoy is moldboard plowing. All arguments aside on conventional tillage vs no till I wish more people did it like 20 years ago when I was a kid. It’s an exciting and fun challenge to set up a field properly to plow it the most efficiently. I don’t have any land locally to till and plow days are few and far between but my family does have 80 acres they contract out about 60 miles from me. Saturday was nice enough I got some seat time doing some plowing with my CC 147 and 10” bring plow. I did just over 1/2 an acre. It was sort of fun to plow the land my gr
