  1. More progress! January 25, 2023 Journal Entry by Emily Leinenbach — 2 minutes ago Over 4 hours of breathing trial today. Will be trying for most of the day tomorrow. Praying for good rest tonight and success tomorrow. Zach’s neck movement is better too. What is so odd is that there are still movements that he doesn’t have back in his face. This process continues to be so confusing but we are so so thankful for forward progress and will take the gains in the order they come. Today was day 2 of 3 in this round of IVIG. We are hopeful for continued progress. Another big win for the day was resolution of an insurance issue that was taking a lot of time to work through and a lot of stress to think about. I was so thankful for that phone call and all the people who allowed me to run things past them, review the issues, and brainstorm ways to work through. I can tell that the breathing easing up has brought a new energy to Zach. I can‘t imagine his relief to not have to work for each breath and know we are getting closer to independent breathing and his ability to communicate better. We pray in thanksgiving for the gains of today, the support of those around us, and the ability to hope for and look to positive progress. We continue to pray for Zach’s full recovery. We pray for success in the breathing trial tomorrow, we pray for continued gains- facial movement, fully independent breathing, reflexes needed, and nerve regeneration/movement body wide. We pray for complete healing with timing that defies the odds, physical and mental strength. Thank you.

  3. They always appeared to a classy family IMHO heres my take on his MIA which may be less than 2 cents worth This forum and all our best wishes may be very hard to handle at this time. Time heals all wounds and everyone deals with tragedy differently. His is a deep wound. Hope fully he comes back but I for one will not bring this topic up to him if he doesn't bring it up first. He knows how we feel , I wish we could help him with the healing

  4. I found one of my Super W4 with a 3 bottom 8c with Ace bottoms. I took the 3 bottom because it was held on sandy tobacco country and that Super is all there

  5. I always liked to plow. Almost never do any anymore though. It was really an art to do it nice and neat. We bought a 720 5-18 auto reset last fall. It was very rusty. The hitch was also rusted solid so it wouldn't turn. After a day in the shop we took it out to shine it up. Oh man was that ground hard! The 42's are not ideal for plowing, nor is a tractor set on 30 inch rows. Should have had the dual on and about five sets of weights. We did end up plowing about 30 acres and got it really shined up though.

  6. I've been working on organizing hardware in the shop. I'm tired of the over packed storage containers and coffee cans full of mixed junk. So I built this. I thought it would be a lot bigger than I needed. It is actually filling up a lot faster than I expected.

  9. Don't know why I overthought the step thing on the 14. They pulled away from the tires real easy. Good clearance now As much as I like bitty's method of putting tire chains on. I don't have a helper monkey so do it by myself. Clean and jerk method like I used to. Body said hey dumbazz, you proved you can still do it now use the fork lift for the other side.........I didn't argue. Chains gained weight since last year.🥺 😄

  13. Mike, I am in awe!!!!! I have three Marlins. An 1893 in 38-55, an 1894 in 38/357, and a 336 in 32-40. Here in the Deep South old Marlins are hard to find. I can't believe the number of 1892s and 1895s you have. Trying to import any one of them now would be prohibitively expensive and probably take longer than I have left. Here is my 1893. It was restored by a friend of mine. Another retired Army Major.

  15. Plowed about 5 acres for a neighbor last fall. SC with 2-14’s on fast hitch. First time in at least 10 since I’ve done any plowing….you never forget how, and even though I was tired at the end of the day it was fun!

  18. The resident 656 D had a head gasket put in by my father once and he didn't believe in putting anything on gaskets... it always bubbled out the right side betwixt the block and head. 25 years ago I replaced the head gasket, didn't machine the head or block, but I used the afore mentioned Permatex* Copper-Coat. didn't re-torque, just put it back to work, and it is still perfect!

  22. Maybe nobody cares if you never went there, but when my wife was in college I drove by here every weekend, bought a number of guns from Bill and Henry, had a few repaired too, used to make me nervous leaving them, each time they would hand me a carbon copy claim ticket, and not let go before saying- “remember, like the Chinese laundry, no tickie, no laundry” i was as afraid they would expire before I got my gun back as i was afraid I would lose that ticket. I can’t imagine the number of peas who passed through the door of that little shop. I am very glad i got to know them.

  25. It was easy to get, but i had to ask. Asked on Wednesday, had 4 12 packs by Thursday. If i take anything to the lake, i try to not have to leave again for the week. If i bring Schlitz or better yet Ranier (which i have to bootleg with people traveling back and forth) nobody drinks all my tasty beverage. Lowers my bar a little but the cost is worth the gain. If I bring PBR everyone who comes in will drink that, because they have heard of it. I cant handle big beer all weekend, just fall asleep, so i keep it lager and 5%or less. Sometimes I bring a 30 of Miller, which I won’t touch, and put that in the big cooler as a bait and switch sort of deal. when i find myself in need of a beer run, it’s either 8 miles by boat and really really really expensive beer or 25 minutes by car and people send me on errands. I prefer to just go prepared, pay the high boat gas prices at the dock and not leave.

  26. One dark night years ago I was driving through the field to the junkyard to fetch some parts, I can’t remember exactly what I was driving but I think it was a scrap 2000s Chevy Impala/Buick Century type of car, I rounded a bend and there were a few raccoons on the road, seemingly stunned by the headlights I promptly accelerated and took out four of them, most successful vehicular varmint kill I have had

  31. Bet you had the same problem that parked my 982, the little tapered pin that follows the worm gear groove came loose, tightened it best I could on tractor and mowed my 2 acres about one more time and it loosened again. I replaced the bearings, seals, retainers, and reassembled, had to take time off working on the 982 to buy a Zero-turn soon be 8 years ago. Plans this spring are getting it back together and see how long it lasts, if that pin comes loose, pretty sure it's a brand new pin, old pin had flats worn on it, but next repair will be WELDING the pin in place. 982 has a "One of a kind" steering system. MR. PLOW would know for sure what power steering system replaces the stock 982 system. I test drove a 1872 Cub Cadet with PS that was for sale about a week before I bought my 982. The 1872 was kinda rough, lots of hours, and the seller didn't want to negotiate, he pulled the keys and stomped into his house at my first offer. I would not have a problem putting PS on my 982 either.

  32. That’s funny on timing. Hope this isn’t too long, but it’s a funny story that’s related. My brother got his permanent visa some years ago, and had to take German civics, history, and language courses for about 6mo. He’d been there 35yr over three stints and knew it all well, but speaking versus reading/writing/hearing comprehension was different, and he did have to work on that. The class had he alone as American, with Poles, Russians, Ukrainians, southeast Asians, Middle Easterners, etc. Final test was a 30min conversation with two older ladies from the village, and no non German word could be spoken. What a sensible test. At the end, they asked what the son did when not working. “Gamer” he said. Oh, that’s bad they said. Crap, he spoke English he thought. No, they said, it’s ok, you passed, it’s just too bad he’s a gamer. He admires the society a lot for what can be summed up as stewardship to any purpose. You can go in a pub that’s 600+ yrs old, all stone and hewn beams, and it’s been in operation since built. Local beers, meats, and such will be of the village and different from location to location. A person trying to dodge work will be retrained and met with endlessly to fix that broke gear to be put back in the machine. And a master carpenter or mechanic is equal in the respect held to a masters degree holding engineer, as it should be. And to your point, the language is stewardly pragmatic in design. He’ll never leave there, but we talk daily in email. He’s the smarter brother, and a good ‘un, as we say in Bama.

  34. The football picture, the guy in the middle was a "holy shiit" size, good article, did you see what they used to bring the two bucks down? Two lever action, steel sights. Whenever I talked with my old man about his old marlin 44/40 he told me it put more meat on the table in the 20s and 30s than you could count, good article.

  36. Color me jealous! I have a 39a from 1975, with an old 4x jap Tasco scope on it. It shoots just as good (or maybe better) than my CZ 457 does. In other words, ridiculously accurate. Best part is, it only cost me $325 at the local pawn shop; less than half the cost of the cz and leupold scope that's on it. I also have a 1974 Marlin 336 30-30 with a 2x el paso weaver scope that a very good friend refinished for me some years ago. Very accurate as well, moreso than my 1894 winchester as much as it pains me to admit it. I don't get it out much, it's too nice to drag through the brush and briars. Here's a shot of the pair: My apologies for the poor photo. Rather modest against your excellent collection, my friend. Mac

  38. l know this don't have anything to do with IH Tractors On A Montana farm and it probably is in other states too but l thought it is interesting that communities grew up around or on state lines. First pic is of Farwell, Texas in 1943. Half the town is in Texas, the other half in New Mexico. You can see the New Mexico sign in the lower left corner. l don't know what kind of car that is but l bet if you had it now days in the same shape it's in like in the pic it would be worth a few bucks! Also wonder where that smoke is coming from in the background...? This pic is of the E.L. Bowman store on the state line with New Mexico in Gaines county, Texas in 1940. l really like looking at those old signs and other details of old pics. Just wonder where the ice came from to put in that ice house? Or when was the last time you could buy a Oh Henry candy bar for a nickel? And are those cars the same kind just different colors?

  42. Well Bill, I actually have two of them..both in reasonable shape... They are in this picture below..but as my eyes are not as good these days...and today the eyes are full of fine dust from Excavator work...and I am presently 90 miles from the ''Gun room "'...I cannot pick them out..... If you want one ...sort out a FFL and the requisite paper work and I will send one over...... I have to do something with some of my beloved Marlins....before the Socialists do something with them for me...... I have about 40 odd old Marlins... Mike

  43. I like to plow with my old Iron. I still need more practice on filling in the dead furrow and plowing ends. It definatly is a really cool art to know.

  44. I started plowing when I was about 8 or 9 on a John Deere B with 2-16 trip plow. Dad had to activate the trip because I couldn't pull the rope with enough force to activate it. That would have been in 61 or 62. The SMTA had an IH 3-16 little genie plow. The little genie didn't have a lot of clearance for trash. With the 706 came an IH pull type 4-16. What a difference! Lots of clearance and trip bottoms. No more having the plow unhook when you hit a rock. The 966 had an IH 3-point semi-mount 5-16. That was really the bomb! Made plowing dead furrows a breeze. The 966 really needed a 5-18 in our ground. Lot's of changes since I left for the military in 75. Now I plow gardens and food plots. I have moved from plowing with the 332 and the 12" Brinley to plowing with the 244 and the 12" Howse to the 790 and it's John Deere 2-14". Bill
