  1. Euphemism? Those jeans I wore in high school?
  2. I've never seen a timber rattler or a copperhead, which the DEC says are both present here, but in my part of the state there are massasauga rattlers. They are fairly docile. Honestly, as a kid I think I had a better chance of getting bitten by the nothern water snakes. THEY are a-holes. They'll strike at anything. I've been bitten playing with little milk snakes, garters, etc. I'm really glad we don't have any truly dangerous snakes around. Did you go to U or State? When were you there?
  3. I used to live weekdays in the hotel next to there, when I was working on a project in PA. Was a Holiday Inn at the time. I'd go through the yard just to deal with the cabin fever. I really like them. I buy parts for pickup when I know I'm going through, as an excuse to stop in. They have the best website in the business and the physical facility is top notch as well.
  4. I apply the same theory to auctions. Pay bills the night before, go broke, and I won't buy anything stupid!
  5. Nah. Get one of those bright colored feathers on a string, attached to a stick!
  6. I've said this before and none of you listen. There's no way an oil change is all it needs. For sure the points and condenser will need replacing too!
  7. Also, if you like the tractor and aren't married to the idea of it having the original engine, replacements are out there relatively inexpensively if needed
  8. That's what I was referring to. So if the serials are combined for A and B, then I have nothing further to suggest. However, there are later records for C that are C only, while here shows SA and C combined, so go figure.
  9. Depending on the model, this *is* available in the records on the Wisconsin historical society website. I'd look it up for the OP and share, but I'm on my phone right now and searching that site is tough on the phone
  10. Not I. I went to Bloomsburg and loved it. Really want to get back to one!
  11. I sure hope this forum stays viable. I gave up fb almost ten years ago and don't miss it. Don't trust them, won't use it. This is an IH platform for IH enthusiasts, *by IH enthusiasts*. I trust the platform not to be shady for that reason. It's not like others that are one of several, all owned by a big data company.
  12. Looong time coming. There's a major difference between disagreeing, or debating even, and just being a jerk.
  13. Geez I could use it. Stupid rotten day, mad at the world, and would like to just read it
  14. Problem is, if people remain anonymous on here, they may just disappear into the ether. I don't know virtually any of you all personally, and I KNOW my wife doesn't. If I get hit by a bus tomorrow, the few of you that know my name or have my number, will still be in the dark. It's the downside of having internet friends I guess. I wonder what happened to @Atilathehun99
  15. If he had interest in bringing to RPRU, and set up a table, I would do that. Doesn't necessarily have to man it the whole time either. Alternatively, id try to find an NOS vendor (Roys Red Iron, etc.) and either sell to him or consign. Other option is to consign to either the IHCC annual action, or winter conference auction. That would probably yield the best return. Don't know where you are, but if the dealership had anything at all related to orchards he's looking to part with, I may be interested and would pay fair.
  16. Yankees fleeing, no doubt. I've got tons of family in Carolina, Florida, Texas. Coincidentally, I have always heard they're real big on tanker ops down there. Even some of the huge towns have giant semi trucks for tanker/tender operations
  17. I was a swimmer for a long time. I feel very confident saying this. Don't blow off a shoulder injury. Shoulders are not meant to do a lot of the things we do with them, including swimming. Further, they're a complex collection of many, many tiny, delicate muscles and other little parts. They often don't fix themselves, and the injury will follow you for life if unaddressed, whereas repairs are usually pretty simple.
  18. What about milk? Not to hijack, but I know they've been beat up the last few years. I'm curious to know if things are looking up.
  19. All our dry hydrants are going the way of the corn crib. Someday it'll be, "what are those old pipe things by the ponds and cricks?". Someone looking out for us poor rural folks decided we need hydrants and government run water on all our roads. So, they spent zillions and are putting them in all over here. Because yay! Chlorine!! And hydrants for miles where there's nothing to burn!! You can't see it but my eyes roll so hard they about do a lap when people talk about city water here.
  20. Lucky you. I Google image searched Lamachine and it's a bunch of Tim-Burton-meets-Jurassic-Park french monsters!
  21. You forgot "cruelty free, imitation" latte. Unless that's what the soy is. Idfk. The only soy I've ever consumed was soy sauce, and lots and lots of pounds of presumably soy-fed critters
  22. Lamachine! That's priceless!!! I come in on both sides of this. I am not a coffee snob. I can drink anything EXCEPT Maxwell House. That isn't coffee. But, like a steak, is you take it without any embellishments (steak sauce, fancy creamer, etc.), then quality counts. I really really like good (usually expensive) coffee. Too tight wadded to buy it for home use myself, but not all coffee is created equal and premium coffee IS premium coffee. For the record, Starbucks ain't it, either. I tend to appreciate an independent coffee shop's coffee. But, if we are tracking points. MTO wins purely due to Lamachine!
  23. Dry barrel hydrants. Not to be confused with a dry hydrant. Dry barrel hydrants are pressurized and work like any other regular hydrant. The difference is that the valve is below the frost line and they drain out through holes below the frost line when closed, as opposed to remaining filled with water to freeze. A dry hydrant is a non pressurized hydrant that requires suction to draft water through it.
  24. There's Fort Boonesborough Living History Museum in Kentucky that my daughter loved when she was ten or eleven. https://www.fortboonesboroughlivinghistory.org/ I can't remember what interstate it was, but driving from Baltimore to Morgantown was gorgeous. Don't know if it's on your way. If you think you'd like to see the Air Museum in Dayton, budget at least a whole day. Otherwise, you're running through to make it all before close.
