    Well Guys , when I bought the 1206 in 2017 , I ask Carol if she was going to divorce me if I bought it . Her response was ill always love you but you'll owe me a home remodel Our floors need replaced , counter tops, and a bathroom upstairs . Well here we are they started today and we have spent the last week packing all we can into a container and shop. We are living in the Motor home perhaps 5-6 months till finished . If we last that long in close quarters . This was my morning view this morning having my coffee. Ill post more pics as we go along Tony

    2018 pictures

    Looks like 2018 was an active fun year! Thank you for sharing . Really enjoyable to see things done across the country from me . Hope your enjoying retirement, although I see you talking of heifers and chopping corn ,hope your not like me ,thought it be nice to keep 20 acres of Almonds to farm so I could adjust to retirement . WELL , I might as well be farming a section for as busy as I am . I will say the milking parlor pic took me back to 1963 when Dad sold the dairy . It loved seeing the spider webs after , because I hated the cows growing up Was good seeing you in Alabama ,hope to see you again soon. Tony

    Heres you a shot of some red eye candy today

    Thank You , I cannot take credit for restoring it. I bought it from Rick Van Zant, Iowa. He restored it basically new again. The pan is a M&W oil pan . It is in its natural condition . Some have suggested that I polish it out but I think it would be overkill . I think the tractor does NOT need more bling . I have never been a Narrow front guy ,other then single wheel fronts on the older Farmalls, but I have to say this thing is pleasure to handle. Tony

    Thank you ! I am flattered with that first pic. Fell in love at first sight at the De Moines RPRU and its former owner let me have Her after I gave him a little piece of paper with my signature on it there is something uplifting about shinny Red paint. Tony

    Auction sales starting.

    In 1967 when I started farming on my own ,Good flood irrigated cotton land was renting for 75-85 per ac. Open land was selling 750.00- 1000.00 p/ac. By the late 70's that same good cotton land with good water increased to 5000.00 -9000.00 p/ac. Cotton land rents were 125-250 The eighties open land prices were hit hard . I had bought good cotton land in late 70's for 7000.00 and in 1984 it appraised at 2500.00 tops. Rents 125-175. I had dinner with a Real Estate agent friend from 60 miles South of me and He had just sold an average 160 ac. open land farm with adequate water for 24,000.00,P/Ac. Have no idea what that would rent for in cotton because today cotton prices are basically at or less then they were in the 70' 80's. That land will probably go into ;Almonds, walnuts, Pistachios or wine grapes, with rents running 20-30 % of crop. Its my opinion that a farmer makes his living and incremental growth during his working years and his retirement is in his land's appreciation , whether its leasing it or selling it. Tony

    My year in pictures...

    Thank You for posting . So interesting to see how things are done 3000 miles East. As for the Gleaner , In the 70's I converted a Gleaner combine to harvest Black Eye beans , She was slow but held up very well . Harvesting Black eyes was a tough and dirty job for the combine ,plants are like rope when dry . Wish you a good year in 2019 Tony

    5 year honey do project

    Congrats ! Today we started packing stuff to move out so we can replace all the floor covering in house. Going to chip out all this Exposed aggregate & Rug flooring we have down stairs and replace with Wood looking tile , While at it paint all inside & Cabinets & replace old kitchen tile. Then build a bathroom upstairs. The aggregate is rough on old timers feet and when my daughter and kids come to visit and stay awhile hate having her using the stairs at night for bathroom . Since her accident few years back she has not been the same with use of one leg. Point I trying to make Dale560 is they are scheduling 6 months and I am dreading it . We are planning to live in Motor home in back yard till floor and paint and tile is back then move back in while they do bathroom. Hope its less then 6 mo's The good part is we are going to get rid of junk taking up space in drawers and at same time I am going to be going through shop and clearing junk ! Tony
