  1. Young helper sent me this a few minutes ago said he's finally got his decorating done. Lol! Looks pretty cool. I use to own that tractor for 22 years till he bought it 2 years ago.

  2. My nephew called me Saturday and asked if I was interested in an Oliver with a loader. So I looked at it Sunday and bought it. The guy was moving out of state, can't blame him for that!!, and wasn't taking it with him. So here are the pictures!!! The tach and hour meter work.

  3. Doctor was pleased with what he saw. Nothing major in her digestive system. His theory is that She has an infection or decreased pancreatic function. Both diagnosis can be treated. Test results in a couple days should confirm the situation. I will keep you posted. Thanks for your prayers and thoughts!

  4. Ever since I was a kid I could not make it through a hard candy without biting it. Now that I have dentures, when I put them in the barn for the night and get a hankering for a hard candy, I suck till it is gone. Took me 64 years to suck. That is not too bad.

  5. I could write a book on the things we did. Just do not feel like typing that much. My kids joked, if their mother died, J.R. was gonna be their new stepmom. I love that man. Even when he is not here, he is here. And did you notice, even though we were on the coast, no short pants for us.

  6. I was looking around and came across these old jd rice field tractors. The first one is a jd R with big old rice tires. It's on Craigslist in Memphis. The second is a 5020 setup with big rice and canes in back and single ribs up front. Those single rib steer tires work great in mud. Before we had mud hogs we ran single ribs on combine steering axles. The 5020 is on auctiontime down in cajun country. Thx-Ace

  11. A few photos, mostly from Facebook. This first photo is of an IHC machinery dealership somewhere with a 25 and a 45 IHC Mogul out front, where the locals are getting their photo taken with them. This 45 IHC Mogul is having some bad luck in the field. I'm only guessing. With both driver wheels removed, and the bull gear missing from the other side, I'm wondering if it broke an axle on the right rear, and if it broke, it may have broken the bull gear in that action? They're mechanicing in the "Big Sky Shop." It appears the man in the middle is holding a 22" Monkey Wrench. I have two of those 22" Monche wrenches. When working on steam engines, they are the handiest wrenches on Silver Creek! My Canadian friend Randy Kvill is shown on an IHC 1911 "Reliance" Tractor, as he calls it. Here is a picture of a 20-40 Case gas tractor pulling a deep root plow in Texas. Here is a Waterloo Boy tractor pulling a Deering combine. This North Dakota farmer has stopped his John Deere tractor pulling a (?)Gleaner(?) combine. He's showing how tall his wheat crop would be without the drought. Taken in 1936. I think the combine might be a Gleaner, because early ones used a Model A Ford engine, which this one has. This is one of those Allis Chalmers All Crop 100 cross mounted combines that is harvesting corn, they say. I can't explain this operation. This is a Jelbart gas tractor, a new one for me! This is a MacDonald Imperial tractor in Australia. This is a "wow" tractor. A Hart Parr 40-80 gas (oil-kerosene) tractor. This larger Avery tractor is showing its ability to twist through coulees and ditches. This farm has a Square Turn tractor. The plows are mounted on the tractor. My late steam friend Carl Mehmke had this Square Turn tractor. It now belongs to his daughter Charlotte and the tractor now lives at Crosby, North Dakota. I had to post this photo of these men using a horse powered windlass for pulling stumps. It would seem that for every stump you were going to pull, you'd want to find a bigger one to cable tie this one too? This is a ca. 1925 Chevrolet "motor home!" A Ford dump truck is being loaded by a steam shovel in a pit and the International Harvester truck awaits its turn. Here is a Ford pickup with a fruit seller along a highway in 1938. I remember a couple of stop signs like this in central Montana. As I remember they were yellow and black. Did any of your states use this style? I never knew the model of this IH truck on the trailer. They were ahead of the Loadstar though, I'm pretty sure? This one was listed as a V-200. I figured I may as well throw in this picture, so I'd have an IH Tractor on a Montana Farm! Gary?

  12. "Dummy"-----well that is good to know. I thought maybe Dummy was just a slang term for our area. Guessing at 500+/_ lbs per bale-----he is probably pulling 20---25,000 lbs of cotton. The trucker hauling out of Avon hauls 100 bales per load (roughly twice of what the little train is carrying). Don't look like alot by today's standards-----but far ahead of the mule and wagon. I see Sunnyside Plantation lettering on the railcars. Sunnyside is approximately 10 miles north west of me----just on the west side of the Greenville bridge (crossing the Big River). DD

  13. With the Booger Creek Gin knocking out near 65,000 bales of Cotton------ was thinking that TwoStep and the Double Clutch Trucking Co. might be running behind on their hauling??? I found this picture of the little train in Chicot County Arkansas today. Everybody needs to own a railroad TwoStep and you could "step" up a notch with your freight movements. Maybe Roger or Gary can fill us in on the little engine. I never saw any hauling cotton------but there were a hand full used for logging back in my early years. The old timers referred to them as "dummy line or narrow gauge". Of course they were growing cotton on a large scale back then. I counted 18 rows in this one pass------and we don't know how many mules got cut out of the picture. The last large scale mule farming I saw was on Cummings Prison Farm (Arkansas state prison) up near Dumas. Luckily-----I never spent any time there; but could see the mules working in the fields from the highway. I snapped these pictures off of an Arkansas tourism poster. DD

  14. Used to (ok, still do) love to throw the back end out and control a power slide for as long as I can. Got pretty good at controlled 360's when I went around a corner, (still am?) although wife has never got used to me doing it. ?? Once when I was 16 or 17 and had both parents in my pickup. Driving down the highway probably at about 55 when the rear end started coming around. Mom let out a very womanly sound, dad grabbed the dash and I let off the stupid pedal just enough to bring the back end slowly in line again, in time to miss the oncoming traffic. They both turned and looked at me with their mouths open. Without missing a beat I told them the next time the town cop complains about me spinning around town you just tell him I'm practicing my defensive driving?

  17. My sister is an immunologist, how she described it to me is that there are no baby fetus’ used in making vaccines. In the development of the vaccine there are a cell line that was derived from aborted fetuses that goes back to the 60-70’s that they use, but those physical cells are not in the vaccine. Those fetuses probably were donated to research due to some complications causing the fetus to be aborted naturally most likely and not from a clinic since it was an illegal act at that time.

  18. No thank you. Said it before and will say it again, I have no interest in the vaccine. I don’t believe that baby stuff either.

  24. Got the allison AT545 I inquired about a few weeks ago all fixed up, running and delivered a few loads of potatoes. First auto I've ever done, and finally shed the "hands off" worry. New converter, Transtar seal and clutch kit, bushings and new pump ran about $700 with fluid and filters too Enjoyable job really but holy heck the metal that was in everything and the amount of cleaning. Kinda wonder why it's even bothered to put filters in autos as the valve body was packed with "glitter" Feels good to fix things though instead of the unbolt and bolt back in culture we have now.

  26. Anson, I'd call that little steam locomotive a "dummy" as that size was referred to back then. I've never seen a cotton train like that one. This has to be rare for an old cotton grower like you, who likes strippers. I personally am a picker. When I have either the banjo, mandolin or guitar out. Or when I pluck that little puff of cotton out of my navel. Plus, I use Q Tip cotton swabs in my ears every night. This is a little Dummy that used to operate in Helena. (nothing to do with this dummy!) I understand the local downtown folks didn't care for the smoke this dummy put out. Gary?

  31. My nickname to most friends is "Wheels" Last name is Wheeler Dad's nickname was given to him as a baby "Jolly Boy" shortened to Jolly as he got older and stuck for life . Uncle George had his first job as a paper boy at 9 years old in 1920 , at the end of his first week the boss man took a big handful of shiny quarters out of his pocket and dropped them on the lunchroom counter to pay all the boys for the week , Uncle George had never seen that much money before and his eyes lit up like a 100 watt light bulb , Boss man saw him and said he looked just like "Ponzi" a famous greedy schemer from the era. The nickname stuck for a lifetime and all of us just knew him as "Uncle Ponzi" Dad's helmet with Jolly painted on it By the way my Mom is responsible for the racy artwork

  37. No problem, Rick. This is going to be going for a while. I never paid attention to those points coming out of the ship. I was down there with a guy that served on the enterprise and could have asked him. He might know??‍♂️ Beginning of May was pretty nice and planted all of my corn and did a little custom planting also. rototilled my garden, came out ok even with the spring plowing. We normally didn’t see porcupines around, this year I saw 3-4 and this one up in a tree near our house. worked up a field I plowed a couple years ago and got the old case stuck a little, she came out on her own but looked a little messy.
