  1. So, I wuz running replacement heifers through the other day and about halfway I discovered I have a propensity towards using foul language. I am actually fairly good at it. ? Although it is common vernacular in these parts amongst my neighbors and me, with grandkids on the horizon, maybe I should try to clean it up a bit. ? After all I don't want mom asking the youngun "where did you learn that kind of language" only to hear "I helped grandpa work heifers". ? Wish me luck. Next time I am trying to push the young dollies up the alleyway and into the chute, maybe I can sound a li

  2. I've found with age that nothing makes a person sound less intelligent than excessive cursing. That being said, yes I to am guilty from time to time but I try to keep it out of regular conversation. I've also been amazed how that part slides on, that heavy tire lines up with the studs, that cow goes where you wanted her to go, after a good cussing.

  3. My employer gave us a small bonus for working through all this covid crap for the past year. I decided to treat myself to the rifle I was going to get before the Covid downturn scared me into saving every penny. I had looked at Ruger, Browning, Savage and CZ in a .17 HMR. I am a fussy and this new CZ 457 really fit the bill. It has very nice wood, the build quality seems very good and it has a real good quality feel to it, shoulders well, and has a 3 way adjustable trigger. I also like that you can buy other caliber barrels for it. I ordered this about two months ago and it just showed

  5. My first boss told me a tale from when had a trucking business. He said he was loading sows for the small church pastor into a straight truck. Those old sows had never seen a loading chute and were not cooperative. A bucket was used to back sows up the chute and it was working until it didn't. Old boss said one of them with a bucket over head charged forward sticking him on top and through a wood fence. He said I cussed and yelled everything I knew. The preacher said I have never heard such language. Boss man said well preacher you never road a sow backwards down and through a loading chute.

  6. It was big fun surprising Tony on Friday , the look on his face when his wife come pulling in the driveway with you know who riding shotgun , very excited to say the least ?‘This car show was something , the quality of cars , trucks , motorcycles (tractor) is something ? I have got another generation started on tractors , this little man just turned 5 years old last week and he thought that tractor was the coolest thing he had ever seen . Got time up there and a started it up and warmed it up for a few min and let him run the foot feet ? That kid was hooked ?, mom and dad doing videos

I greased the U joints, pit cornhead grease in the gearbox and i will give it a whirl (literally) as soon as i can get the Allis Chalmers out. It seems fairly solid except that the corners are all cracked from the agitator flopping around

  14. We have a ongoing issue going on up and down the road my folks live on for the past year but no one has been able to catch the ahole in the act. Little over a year ago did donuts in a 2 year old alfalfa seedling. Brother and a neighbor heard the truck revving up but by the time anybody could get down there the truck was racing away. A couple of weeks later someone went out in the above neighbor's wheat field and did 2 donuts in the field. This field has a pond in it of varying size depending on how wet it is. It was wet when this happened and he cut 8 to 10 inch ruts in the wheat when he

  17. I know what you mean. When I started college in '73 I was exposed for the first time to very consistent use of the F word. Started using it more myself just out of habit. Took a while to break the habit. Then working in an industrial environment put it in front of me again. Takes a conscience effort to keep it halfway clean. Re. the F word - like George Carlin said "that's the one you use for the end of the argument". Too many people use it now as every other word, and the only adjective they know. Takes effort to break a habit.

  19. What would Jesus say? Not saying I don't let a bad one slip now and then, but this helps me some anyway. I have finally disciplined myself to not take the Lord's name in vain. Had to teach a couple of different grandsons by answering their "oh my God" to "do you think God thinks you're talking to Him?" Definitely made them think twice before saying it again.

Needless to say I thought there was a bee in there and yelled out a few choice words. When I got undone and walked outside the boy says did you kill that f'ng bee dad? Didn't know him and momma had walked down to see me. OOPS

Inj pump stolen off 966, missing a few tin pieces but alot of small items still intact. Primo fenders, front mount hyd, 38" rear wheels. 706 is a turd and will be flushed accordingly. Was a both or none deal. Hrs seem right on 966. Picking them up Wed/thur.

This is not new news, the transaction was official October of 2018, but McLaughlin Body, formerly of Moline with a satelite plant in East Moline was renting space in the old FARMALL Plant in it's Quad-City Industrial Mall stage of existence. But effective October 2018 McLaughlin Body BOUGHT the last 550,000 square feet of remaining manufacturing space. Those familiar with the plant, that's everything left at the west end of the plant. Until I stumbled onto the story yesterday afternoon I had heard nothing about this. McLaughlin makes cabs, they made cabs for FARMALL, I remember truck

  26. I've used both pine and hemlock and certainly would use either again. Hemlock is somewhat stronger but it's not hardwood strength. 25 years ago I had some 12X12 posts replaced in my barn. At the time I was way too busy to do it myself and the price quoted was fair. Anyway, those posts were hemlock that I specified because I'd "heard" that it was more rot and insect resistant than white pine. Flash forward 20 years and I noticed powder post beetle evidence, so that killed the insect resistance theory. I treated those posts and all the other new work I've done with a boron product. The

  31. Like I mentioned and like I did, I made a point of not swearing around my kidz as they grew up, I also never swore when doing stuff with my son, but that all changed when him and I started hanging pipe and rebuilding GD pumps. The only others were my folks, didn’t swear around them either just out of respect, but there was this one time in 1969 happening around 2 in the afternoon and I have to be at work at 4, I put a clutch in the Z and I didn’t take the time to use a pilot shaft, just spin the pressure plate and tighten up when the tranny is in, well it’s hot, I’m on my back with this r

  32. I admittedly cuss alot. I use them all. I am pretty good at keeping it clean at family things or around certain neighbors and customers but when I'm around the regulars it's all out there. Not proud but not ashamed. Never thought of them as much more than words. Most of my corruption came from working with my Uncle and industrial work in the past. It was the constant vocabulary in those situations. Probably should clean it up but I would have to want to first.

My landlord was retired HWY PATROL superintendent. Parents were contacted and wondered if their son had ran thru his fence. He said no why do you ask? They said he ran thru some barbed wire and it tore out all the brake lines, and a bunch of other stuff ( i cant remember ) and cost quite a bit of $$ to fix so they said if

  40. There was very little swearing in my house growing up. The worst I heard as a child was Dad when something went wrong was DAM! And that meant it was pretty bad because it was usually , "aw heck". However..... after I became a bit older say 18 and up I sometimes heard my Father say "aw Sh!t" and it was a revelation when I heard him use the "F" word over the phone to his brother! As I got older, I came to realize that my Father swore like many people, just not in front of kids. I rarely swear in normal conversation, my Wife says I just don't swear much at all unless I am using the word to make

  43. Hey Jeff, my post in your other thread mentioned being by myself on a bus at age 5 to 6, that’s when I started with the blue jargon and it continues to this day, didn’t make a point of using it in front of my kids but things happen. I was told a few times, I’ve been told it shows a lack of intelligence, (maybe) I’ve been told to trade words with blue words ( never) I’ll never change, I don’t want to change. The funny thing is if I meet someone I don’t start out “ duck this and duck that” but more often than not they will start the conversation in that manner, my thinking is the long

  45. Sandhiller, I was in your place once. I picked up the bad habit while in the Army. Every 3rd or 4th word would come out pretty darn blue. Then I actually listened to myself one day and realized how dumb I sounded. Believe it or not, it only took a few days to completely stop cursing. I haven't used anything worse than "fiddle faddle" or "holy crud" in over 20 eyars. Even when the 4# hammer hits my thumb!

My boys are tough, yet respectful and God fearing. They don't take sass. 17 year old just signed up for the Marines. Middle boy at 12 plays outside and never complains. Youngest boy at 5 is a cowboy, carrying his wooden pistol everywhere. My little girl, 10, is everything a girl should be, sweet, loving, caring and still tough.
