  1. A couple from Florida are traveling through Kannada and needed fuel, the gent gets out to fill up and his lady says "ask where we are" the gent fills up his car and goes inside to pay, as he pays he asks "where are we"?

  3. January 31, 2023 Journal Entry by Emily Leinenbach — 9 minutes ago Solid work today. 8 hours on breathing trial. There also seems to be some subtle shoulder movement. Toward the end of the 8 hours there were signs he was wearing out but wouldn’t let them switch him back until he hit the 8 hour mark. Praying for good rest tonight and continued progress tomorrow. We are thankful for safe travel. We are thankful for today’s progress. We are so thankful for all the help and support from family and friends. We continue to pray for complete healing. We pray for independent breathing, return of “normal” communication, we pray for return of reflexes and muscle movement to protect that progress. We pray for full body nerve regeneration and functional muscle movement - and at sonic speed. We pray that we see improvements that allow time with intense rehab to be optimized. We pray for physical and mental strength. Thank you.

  6. Those people need to realize they're putting themselves at risk too. Takes a real genius to want to blind someone he's getting ready to meet on a two lane.

  7. Eating tools I guess. Found them with the last of my mom's stuff. Belonged to my grandma and I remember eating with them as a small boy. Came over with them when they came over hear from Germany about 1920 so have to be well over a hundred years old.

  8. The problem is once a farmer drove the IH, there was no way in Heck he was going to get on that AC and farm. You might get lucky and find an AC guy that jumped to IH, but odds are they'll never admit they used to farm with an AC!!!!!

  10. I grew up having chickens and ducks, a few geese, and a pair of turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas. They were just always around, it seems. One of my first chores as a boy was gathering eggs and feeding and watering the all birds. Mom always killed a pullet for Sunday dinner, and we always had fresh eggs. I remember selling the excess for $1.00 a dozen, and people were scandalized when we started asking $1.25; of course that was years ago. One thing I do remember, we never regarded any of them as pets. "Never name anything you might have to eat", pawpaw always said. These days, we have about 30 hens; they lay about a dozen eggs a day in the winter time and about two dozen a day in the warm months. My wife loves them, most of them have names and they all get "treats" every time she goes outside. She also understands that they get sick and die, that predators will get them, and that I like fresh chicken in my dumplings. Up until two weeks ago, she had a rooster that she'd raised from a chick. He was her friend if ever a chicken could be; he followed her around outside, "talked" to her, sat in her lap, and came inside each morning and evening for a snack and some cuddles. Until one evening we came home from work, and he didn't come up. A hawk killed him, and I'll admit even my hard heart softened a little to see her so upset. But that's the way of owning farm animals; we get attached to them but in the end, they're not pets and we all have to accept that. I guess that's a long way of saying I agree with you, people are stupid, and most shouldn't be able to own animals of any kind! Mac

  11. I remember years ago Dad tool us up to Saskatchewan tp go fishing. Drove a 1966 Ford up. Dad was casting off of the front of the boat and when the lure didn't come forward he looked back and had hooked Mom in the nose. Well Mom wanted to go to hospital to have it took out. Well Dad cut the line off about 4 inchs from her nose. I never forget it when we walked in Dad reached up and lead her in and said this is the biggest fish I ever caught.

  12. The Farmall Plant In Rock Island, Illinois rolled off the specially painted 1066 as the 5 millionth tractor. Friday February 1st, 1974 at 9:00 AM. The tractor had about every option that could be had. A celebration after coming off the line was done to recognize this industry first achievement. The first Farmall Regular produced at the Farmall Works Plant in October 1926 was also present. The 1066 today is at the Ft. Benton, Montana Ag Museum. IH released a five minute film on this celebration in 1975. The guy here is Stan Lancaster. He was Vice President of North American Farm Equipment Division (I think that’s his correct title). Speaking on the mic is Joseph Hart, I can’t remember his title. The other was Farmall Plant Manager Tom McCallister. This was at the August 26th, 1976 introduction at Chicago’s McCormick Place for the new 86 Series.

  13. I don't want to trash the Allis too much 190-200s are my least favorite. There is a reason they are very cheap but even the 7000- series are. I secretly would like a 7050 maroon belly because it has the big shifter on the floor and I almost have good memories in one this statement was the funniest to me but if a guy believes it I don't want to rain on his parade Heck, the One-Ninety XT diesels were outperforming IH 1206's.

  20. The best truck I've had for reliability is my '86 Dodge D-100 4wd. Bought it with 10,000 miles in Dec of '86. Has 156,000 miles now. Nothing's been rebuilt, including the alternator and starter. The most powerful and best riding was my '01 2500 diesel with 6 spd. Best beater with a heater truck was a '76 F-100 300 with 3 on the tree

  24. My experience with my wife’s auto dim headlights causes me to blame them in part. They take too long to dim and flick back too early, so those bright strobe in the eyes effect when modern cars go by and flick back too soon, I think is auto dim. Doesn’t help you see better or make the situation less worse, just another part of driving being taken away by too much tech in the cockpit.

  26. I’ve spent a little time on a 190XT and a 200. They were decent working machines but always seemed very spartan to me. Of the AC tractors I always liked the look of a D21 but have never run one. There are a couple in the area though.

  28. We bought a new 6080 in '81 , new 8050 MFD PS in '87 . We traded a 656 hydro on the 6080 and a 1066 on the 8050 . You had to be close enough to plug in the AC tractors in cold weather about 50° F warmer than the IH would start in easily. Those pumpkins weren't half the tractor the IH was at least in our experience....

  29. My buddies uncle used to haul into the US, got down into Texas and there had been a recent snowstorm overnight and he was rolling down an interstate and sees a trooper going the other way, about 5 miles further he gets pulled over by a trooper, he comes up and asks what the he !! he's trying to prove, Mike says nothing why, about this time the trooper notices the truck is from Canada and says I guess you guys are used to driving in these conditions, only 6 months every year, he says ok can you knock it back abit you might be fine driving in this stuff but somebody's gonna loop out in front of you and have a wreck

  30. Yeah, I ain't a kool kid, just want to see in the fog.......................... I drive the truck mostly at night and nothing pizzes me off more than the super bright lights of today and people that will not dim early enough. These will be aimed hopefully so they do not cause problems for oncoming drivers.

  44. In 1968 dad purchased a new 68 custom 10 with the 396 V8 and auto trans. 27,000 miles later it showed up with a cracked cylendar and the dealer replaced the engine but 396's were hard to get so they put a 427 car short block in it. That pickup would squeal the tires shifting into 2nd and a time or 2 we wrapped the spedo around to 0. Gosh i do not know why i traded it off now. Probably why i am still alive

  45. January 30, 2023 Journal Entry by Emily Leinenbach — 9 minutes ago 5 1/2 hours of the breathing trial today. It seems like movements he has gotten back are stronger. We continue to be grateful for support, prayers, and messages. We are grateful for those that have and continue to step in- often in ways we don’t even know- to keep things moving in our ‘normal’ life. We pray for complete healing. We pray for independent breathing, return of normal communication and recovery of movement/reflexes to support and maintain this. We pray for nerve regeneration and healing body wide and recovery of functional movement so that we may capitalize on rehab time once we reach independent breathing. We pray for return to home and then back to “life” at sonic speed. We pray for both physical and mental strength and we pray for invested staff. We pray for the ability to get to rehab soon and “get to work” remembering we may be the builders but God is the architect. We are anxious to put things into motion. Thank you.
