  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. 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.

  4. 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. 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.

  6. Dad bought a '49 Ford single axle grain truck at an auction in the late '60. When he bid on it for the last time, someone behind him said "Jesus Christ". From then on, the truck was known as J.C.

  7. 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.

  9. Looked at 2 IHs yesterday. F-706 and 966. Both are early production models. 706 originated in southern OK. 966 was probably sold new in area I saw it at. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Exactly. One of the things that always annoyed me was when people would say they don't curse but then use "substitute" words in their place. I'm certain we have all heard people do it or done it ourselves. Yeah, saying "frick" makes it ok.

  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.

  20. I always figured, if a kid hears you cuss, it should be for a specific and good reason. And then explain these words should not be used in general conversation.

  21. 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!

  22. 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

  24. With the problems you list , no lift on a valve and a ticking noise. You probably are better off to just bite the bullet and spend the money on sleeves and pistons , full overhaul kit on engine with new cam. Put the cam in it might run for a bit you are just better of to go through it all.

  27. 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

  30. being from MO I know they type, have had encounters with a few over the years, best thing i ever saw done was my landlord strategically placed some old barbed wire in the weeds where they seemed to like to come/go - saw the truck a couple times after that and got lic number. 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

  31. Didn't grow up around much swearing. Dad would let a few choice words slip every once in awhile and when it did slip it caught your attention and you knew something wasn't right and you better leave. As far i can remember never did him say the F word. I try my best to never swear or curse but it does happen sometimes and when it happens everyone around usually shuts up or leave. Step son is bad about it working on him to clean his act up.

  36. I will confess, I struggled with it more when younger, wanted to be cool with the dudes around. My conviction/moral compass kicked in, trying to clean up and not teach my children the filth from my dad who was an example of every other word all day long. He cleaned it up if he was in church which wasnt that often. I still have demons that come out when I get sideways with something not cooperating when I am struggling to fix it after 19 times of trying to get the nut to start on the threads, im leaning over teh engine, my back is shot, my neck is craming, my arm is raw trying to get it i

  37. 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

  38. 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

  39. That was my attention getter years ago new dad and I was all wadded up changing some pickup teeth on the baler when a horse fly got in the v of my overalls having himself a nice lunch. 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

  43. I wish I still had my first car. 1966 dodge coronet 500 2 door four speed, with 391 posi. The plugs on it were real easy, they went right down through the middle of valve covers. It didn't do real good on gas, but it would get there like right now. Wish I still had it, I could probably retire or get killed.

  47. My first cross USA trip was in 1963 where I took a Greyhound trip from San Diego to Chicago via Nashville and Myrtle Beach SC. Calluses on the butt from 2 weeks or Greyhound but now looking back after a few years it was the greatest trips ever basically because it was before freeways! and you got to see places and things. If the driver was talkative he (all drivers were male) would keep me informed. One of those buses had a stewardess on board, she (all were female) would provide hot and cold drinks and wake me up at a bus stop.

  48. I was born in 73. Boys were raised to be tough, God fearing and protective of women. Good values were taught by my parents and most everyone else around. I do the same thing with my kids. 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. Each of the oldest 3 have corrected their teachers, respectfully, and
