  2. Wheel centers are already swapped out. Took all afternoon to break one side of front axle loose. Rat piss just seems to weld these together. One side always takes all day and other side is loose and out in and hr.

  5. Welder---- I've got neighbors who just returned from a guided bear hunt in Alaska. (stayed at Stephan Lake Lodge northeast of Talkeetna). But flew out elsewhere to hunt. So unique to hear their story-------they hunted from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM (saying it never really got dark). Just the opposite from our legal hunting hrs down this way. Were bow hunting for Grizzly. Didn't get the grizzly------ but got a nice black bear. They are already scheduled for going back next year. (gotta get the grizzly ?) Before going-----I suggested they mix some doe in heat scent with honey and apply liberally to their feet. But-------- don't think the wife let him try it!!!? DD

  6. DD, years ago l had 2 IH planter hoppers similar to that. l put them on the front porch and filled them with potting soil. then my wife transplanted some flower plants in them. Then one year just for kicks we planted some cotton seeds in them. lt did pretty good and got quite a few comments when folks came to our house. They were just like these in the pic.

  8. Looks like it’s stretching up quite nicely. There’s one field of silage corn here I’ve been meaning to take a pic of. Looks pretty pathetic in comparison lol. It’s coming along nicely but it’s only about a foot tall now.

  9. Did the F-12 have a 3 speed or 4 speed transmission?? ***** In the picture of the F-12 moldboard plowing---------the Armstrong power lift lever looks to be in an awkward position (so far forward for operator to reach)??? Sure is some good looking dirt he is plowing (not a clod in the picture). ******* Glad to see your oats looking good Gary. Need an oat report from Montana Matt. DD

  10. That six hole cast has to go! I don't even like those on my 86's. Plan on putting on 5088 cast someday on my 86's.

  12. These were on Facebook. These three F-12's on rubber might even be cultivating cotton? I sure wouldn't know. And this F-12 on steel wheels is plowing. Moldboard plows weren't popular here either. Speaking of Farmall F-12's, I was at Silver Creek today and meant to take a picture of our F-12. Farmall Kid had it out of the shed and prepared to use it to cut hay around the creek. I knew I wanted to take a picture of something, and I'll be darned if I could remember what. That was it! This is an old picture of it and its mower. Oh, yeah... It is an IH Tractor on a Montana Farm though! I did remember to take a couple photos of the oats crop. They're heading out. They are the best looking oats we've had, that I remember anyway. They just got 3/4 Inch of rain in the past two days. Gary ?

  13. Another find from the old shop last week: Massey-Harris No. 8 Cotton and Corn planter hopper. Went with the 1936/37 model M-H Challengers. I knew the hoppers were here------just didn't remember where. I have a picture (somewhere) of one if the Challengers planting-------most likely with this old hopper in use. Gotta see if I can pull it up. DD

  14. Professor------- I don't figure my dad sold that electric chair. He always "corrected" me with a wide strap leather belt!!!!? (he thought it would correct anything-------and it pretty much did so-----my butt is still smoking!!!!!)?? You mention Tallahatchie County (in Mississippi Delta). I recognize the courthouse at Sumner in the background-------looks like the picture was made on the square in front of the courthouse. Parchman (the state penitentiary) is just a few miles south of Sumner. From the looks on a couple of those boys faces------it looks like they may have gotten a "lasting impression". It's a damm shame------but looks to me that "ol Sparky" and that "wide strap leather belt" needs to be reintroduced to the younger generation. I am going to send this picture to a couple of my friends up in Tallahatchie County------by chance; they may know someone in the picture. DD

  15. Couple more inches of rain over the weekend so the bit of hay I cut is taking a beating and more showery weather for today. I took this shot of the Brandon wheat by my driveway July 8. Its not bad but seems short even for Brandon. Some is headed at barely knee high .

  17. I was thinking about that the other day Mike. Just manage it. Our hasnt showed again for 18m. But we keep getting low staph aureus count since April and cant figure it out. Tested hi scc cows, always test fresh cows and clinical cows. I sample every fresh then to save $ we only bring in samples from hfrs and the cows wed bought. Freeze the standard cows samples. I am afraid I tossed all of the April ones(when we started seeing staph) like a ouf. Vet is finally saying sample everyone again. Sighhh...3k poof. Rains coming wed...started mowing at 330 this morning. Got all down by 530p. Forgot i started 2 hr earlier than normal....mx170 took 89.4 gallons. Holds 92. Last swath i swore it fluttered a little! But grass looks great! 36 days though since we waited since weather wasnt very good. Got done in time for bankers dinner thing about milk markets. Girls...swim, put on boots lead calfs, swim again. So silly Wasnt expecting this at bbq we went to with church friends. Little cab fwd jeep truck. Savable. Rough though. Ran 3 years ago the owners brother said. He was squirting fuel in carb with mustard bottle and his brother was driving. Awesome!

  21. "Eagle Eye" Fred--- Don't know about the pump Jack-----had never noticed either. But------I definitely like your Magnolia Petroleum Co. sign. That oil would be acceptable over here in Mississippi----------being that the magnolia is our state flower. And-------in the old days; we used to see a few women (actually ladies loaded with southern charm) named Magnolia.?? DD

  28. Went camping for few days up to the frozen tundra of Penticton BC. Lots of history stuff. Such open country...took 2 hr to take the 1 back road we found with me and the dads. Pretty area for sure. We really should of fought for 54*40".. Never seen one of these. Like a old Scrambler but 56k!! Play area..just behind me was main highway. Kinda loud but decent place. Next time we'll have to ask for spot farther back. But we went during Peach city cruise. 450 cars plus...very high quality rigs in land there. This 57 was just right, blown big block power. The Impala was from WA (1.5 hr...for us it was 4.5) full chassis on air. He wanted 50k but not sure it was there. Froots by the lake...must be feral kids.. Seen this neat old chev van. Dont see em often. For some reason I've wanted a van last few months. 0 sense..never owned one in my life. Wash up takes as much time as trip i swear. Rained some so grimmie. And if you take decent care of a rv it last. Dont do much they dont last much. Realized i have not washed my car for over 20 years! Runs pretty good finally. Needs Alt though. And floors. And rust repair. And tires. And headliner. And new posi. And new rear bumper. And polished frt bumper. And shocks. And frame bushings. ............

  30. Just curious, has anyone heard about the Alaska wild fires.? We we have had some subdivisions evacuate, over 1 million acres burn, and the smoke is so thick you can’t see in Fairbanks. Most of us are in no danger, but there have been some neighborhoods where they were told to leave. The Hess Creek fire, along the Dalton is almost 150,000 acres, and growing https://www.reuters.com/article/us-alaska-wildfires/air-quality-plummets-as-wildfire-smoke-hits-alaskas-most-populous-cities-idUSKCN1U505P
