  1. Brad lived in California and was a lifelong environmentalist. He was sick of the world; of Covid-19, Brexit, Russian belligerence, China, global warming, ethnic tensions, and the rest of the disturbing stories that occupy media headlines. Brad drove his car into his garage and then sealed every doorway and window as best he could. He got back into his car and wound down all the windows, selected his favorite radio station, started the car and revved it to a slow idle. Two days later, a worried neighbor peered through his garage window and saw him in the car. She notified the emergenc

  2. On December 28th, 2019, I finally was able to bring back a 1256 to the farm. The 1256 that dad had was sold in 1986 and is currently being used locally. Lots of memories on the fender of a 1256. Dad knew of this 1256 so after a few years was able to get it bought. I am now the 3rd owner. The tractor sat for a long time - some figure 25 years+. Most would say it was not worth saving but a 1256 was on my bucket list and this made it even more of a challenge, yet appreciate the final project even more. Every piece of tin and parts were removed and glass beaded. Dad ppp(glass beading) and

  5. I can't remember the last time I needed you. Six months, a year? Gave you some love or a fresh tank of gas. Even longer? You are sitting behind an old pickup and another tractor. I see you have no hyd fluid left (not really your fault, it's the leaky old campaigner DuAl loader that is the culprit there). You let some of the air out of one of your back tires. And somebody robbed your battery for a more important project I'm sure. Every time I bring something new home I tell the missus "maybe better let the old girl go on Big Iron to help with the new purchase". She always says she sh

  9. I bought this in October and believe I'm the third owner from what I've learned. Sold new in St John, Washington at St John Hardware & Implement, which i see is still open today. I was told it lived its working life in Alberta pulling a 60' harrow. A jockey got hold of it in 2017 and sent it through a Mecum auction after which it briefly ended up in Wisconsin. It is atypical of rigs around here having a swinging drawbar, Coleman, and long axles. It's in fairly good shape as it sits. 7240 hours on original working tach, Solar turbo, believed to be factory AWD. Front axle is tight

  10. I think I'm about done with the wall in the shop. Still have Surge and Farm Credit clocks to hang somewhere, but the choices are getting slim. Maybe over the bottom end of the CIH tower. I have had the signs and stuff for a long time, just never got it all arranged. I put the shelves up in the last few weeks.

  12. Today, Dad and I dug out from that last winter storm. 9" of heavy, wet snow. I made it home yesterday, only to bury the car in my driveway. The wind blew from the southeast, so my windbreak on the west and north did no good! 2 Farmall tractors, 2 263 gas engines, 2 heathousers, 2 Westendorf WL-21 loaders, 2 3 point blades. Could not resist a photo of the 2 machines together. This is the first winter since I have owned that 656 and loader that I had not loaned it to my friend.

  16. Old Aladdin No. 11 Kerosene lamp I found in Grandpas house a while back. I’m sure it had been sitting in the attic longer than I have been alive so I decided to get it running and clean it up. Talked to the son of an old time local lamp store owner who is still around and he sold me a NOS mantle for it. We spent the better part of the morning cleaning up Christmas stuff and then I decided to get some OOO steel wool out and a little chrome polish (this is nickel plated). Didn’t turn out too bad for an amateur who likes to hit things with hammers.... Last pic is the lamp lit sitting at “idle”. I

  18. After a real ugly storm yesterday and night, we are going to have a white Christmas after all! From my family to each one of you, my friends, on the RPF, here's wishing a happy, enjoyable, very Merry Christmas. For those of you who are traveling or have family or friends traveling to your place. My prayers are for safe travels both to and from. Getting ready to go in to Christmas Eve Services with our youngest and his new bride. Take care everyone. God Bless.

  20. Here are some pictures of ours. It is very modest and was built in the 60's as a machine shed. We dug a couple feet of dirt out, poured a new foundation and put in a cement floor the second year we were here. It has been a work in progress for almost 20 years now and we have extremely outgrown it. It is 40 x 48 x 14 tall in the high part. We are designing a new one, but that is a ways off yet. Don't laugh at our messes, a lot goes on in there. Everything from sitting in the chairs by the stove eating cookies to any repair, simply a polish and complete restorations. It has served us well so far

  23. I agree! There is a time and a place. A young Chinese student was in the US. She seen our people watching the news and it was dividing us even more. Either side of the aisle didn't matter. She then asked, "Why do you watch this?" The person said, "Because it is our news." Chinese girl said, "In China it is propaganda, we know it is propaganda, so we do not watch it." I thought this was one of the most profound statements I had ever heard. Why do we watch it?

  25. There are more Catholic churches in Las Vegas than Casinos! Not surprisingly, a not insignificant portion of each Sunday's collection comes in the form of casino chips from the various gambling establishments around town. In order to facilitate their collection and redemption for cash the various churches have enlisted the services of a Franciscan Monastery which each Sunday sends members of the order around collecting the chips from the various churches. During the week they sort the chips, cash them in at the various casinos and then redistribute the appropriate money to the various churc

  27. If people do not draw a line in the sand to stand up at some point against tyranny then soon there will be nothing left for anyone but the elite at the top. This is not Democrat and Republican. This is the very real possibility of having your constitutional rights taken away. I’m not crying about elections or anything else. All the election did was prove how people are willing follow blindly into an abyss of nothing. So, if things aren’t looking in a downward direction, then tell me @gearheadmb, just where are they looking? Honest question. How will industry thrive? How will personal

  31. Best I could do. Merry Christmas to all! with 2020 being a gut punch to most, May we all enter 2021 with an open mind, a true moral compass, a good sense of humor, and a full cooler. (That’s why I put sense of humor first for all you with your undies in a twist now!)

  35. Okay. My wife has 2 separate issues. She has an underactive pancreas, so poorly digested food is is passing through her intestines and irratating her colon. A pill before eating will cure that. A second condition with a million dollar name is causing issues with her esophagus. Thus, the acid reflux and bile taste in her mouth. I guess some of the cells in her esophagus think they are intestinal cells. There is a medication for that as well. So, we are confident that healing will be forthcoming! Merry Christmas, everyone!
