  1. I still can't figure out if Hammer is the youngest old man; or oldest young man on RedPower.😂 And------here I am having only collected up some dust, cobwebs and empty medicine bottles over the past year.😰 DD
  2. 👍 and Amen------to Gary's Thanksgiving card. I don't have anything to compete with that card. The missus and myself are planning a slow and quiet day here at home. Got a turkey in the oven now------won't be smoked but still should be good. Have a happy Thanksgiving to eyeryone!!!! DD
  3. Who is shaking the jar?? Definitely a serious matter not to be joking about but; I was thinking about how much "the jar has been shaken" in recent times. Made me wonder if Jerry Lee Lewis might not be shaking it to the tune of Whole Lot of Shaking Going On? The right ants and the left ants are definitely in a turmoil------and the general public is caught amongst it all. HELP!!!!!!! DD
  4. Big hawk was admiring my scrap yard this afternoon------first atop the Loadstar then atop the old steel wheel Adam's grader. Anybody able to identify the species of hawk. DD
  5. 4/26/51------my 8th birthday A friend sent this to me yesterday. We wuz probably getting ready for a big ball game out in the front yard. Picture is sorta faded and tattered-----but I believe it has survived better than myself 🤔 DD
  6. Dear Professor Yaeger: Sign me up for whatever procedure Elizabeth Taylor is administering!!!! She was a hot number during my Marine Corps days--------seems like there were several "Marine Corps discussions" of how good Elizabeth Taylor looked at a couple of our summer camps. (early 60's) She probably lost count also------I am thinking 6---8 husbands?????? DD
  7. Picturesque toy truck. Avon Gin----Avon, Mississippi Made me wonder how the ginning season is coming along out at the Booger Creek Gin? DD
  8. V-12 Lincoln Seems like my dad had a 1946 Lincoln with the V-12 for a short period of time. I was only 3 at the time------he bought it in Memphis. New vehicles were a rare find immediately after WW II------you bought whatever you could. I didn't know much about engines/cars-------but loved the big Lincoln. Huge car running primarily on gravel roads wasn't very practical. Seems like he traded it for a 1948 Buick Super??? DD
  9. We don't see rocks that size down here in the Delta. It is thought that our labor force (Willie B and the brothers) have played with and rolled them around to the point of having made crushed gravel out of them.😰 Those are the same boys that warped a cannon ball in one day's time. I will try to remember and send you a bus load of rock crushers for Christmas!!! (Lots of calendars represented in your Rock---------thanks for posting). It is impressive. DD
  10. Bit of non tractor/truck knowledge I picked up on last night: After watching a couple of good Gunsmoke TV shows tonight-----my curosity caused me to Google alcoholic content of old west whiskey. Its true that the whiskey from the wild west days was approximately 1/3 strength of today's whiskeys-----so the old boys could in reality choke down considerably more drinks (or bottles). BUT------ alcohol was somewhat of a preferred drink of the times due to the frequent contamination aspects of water at the time, in addition to it being commonly accepted for medicinal use. I had neve
  11. Meanwhile back at the Ranch in the Mississippi Delta--------winter is coming this way (along with tropical storms) and the board of directors held a meeting discussing the situation. Left: Thomas T Tom-Cat Middle: Marvin the Goose (belongs to our neighbor----but is a frequent visitor with us) Wrangler Horse (always chairman of the board) All have special personalities. Sure tends to settle an old codgers mind in a world that otherwise makes little sense.🤐 Thank God for his critters. DD
  12. That picture had kicked my mind back to the 60's when we would meet a load of Loadstar's being delivered------and most of the trucks had already shed most of their factory paint. What was the cause of the paint flaw-------why did it take so long for IH to cure their problem???? Funny------but I don't remember any other brands being delivered that way???? Who's got pictures?? DD

  14. Matt-----that group of plowing pictures sure are showing off some scenic countryside in the backgrounds. We are just beginning to note early tinges of the fall season coming this way here in the Mississippi Delta. DD
