  1. When I lost my leg, I had to invest in sweatpants. I did not own any and my family insisted that thermal underwear were not appropriate in public!
  2. Congratulations, Sir! Enjoy your life after your career. Dad says retirement days are far too short, so take advantage! I am sure you have wonderful memories and have seen some fabulous views from the cockpit. I have never flown, so I can only imagine.
  3. I hauled in big round bales with my 856 with duals once. Three point bale carrier. Just hours after it was baled. Smooth ride and negligible damage to the stubble. It was just after I purchased the tractor and drove it home. Never did it again.
  4. I have served twice on jury duty. The second time. I served on a 3 day trial. We convicted the gentleman to 30 years. We were handed the case mid afternoon. Could not come to a unanimous decision. They put us up into a motel with no TV. The next morning over donuts and juice we finally came to the guilty verdict.
  5. If you look at her head, the brown markings on the LH side of Her head have faded over time. The ones on Her body and tail have not.
  6. Full blooded Rat Terrier. Dad was black, brown and white. Mom was brown and white. Littermates all had black markings but her.
  7. M is bigger. Will not fit the belly of the H.
  8. January 29th is the day I celebrate Feisty's 🥳 birthday. She was born in mid December of 2009. I snapped a photo on Jan. 29, so that is the day I use to keep track of her age. Just over a month old. 2015 2017 2019 2024. Holding up well at 15!
  9. There was one around the Colfax/ Mingo area a few years ago. Don't know if it is still around anymore...
  10. 99 in my graduating class. Just small enough to know everyone. I was never popular, but I treated everyone with respect. Now, everyone in my class seems to appreciate me. If I ever build my shop, would consider hosting a class reunion.
  11. Have these on the F150. Worked well in the deep snow we just had. BF Goodrich
  12. Check out 406 Garage on U Tube. He finds and sells lots of IH pickups and Scouts. Out in Oregon I believe.
  13. I know of at least one. It is a verified gold demo. Will be a the Roundup in Spencer this June.
  14. I made decent money in my late teens and early 20's custom round baleing. However, you almost had to visit certain customers carrying a Louisville Slugger to get paid! They would not answer the phone or respond to a bill in the mail. Finally had to demand payment before I went to work with some of them. Don't get me wrong, some of them met me in the driveway with a check and a cold drink. They were a joy to work for.
  15. They did not have the white stripes. That was a hydro 70/ hydro 100 design.
  16. The quiet, shy ones that nobody noticed in high school are the ones that become the best wives. Hard working, affectionate and loyal.
  17. My toolbox in the shop is an old Waterloo. Has the 2 shelf cabinet on the RH third. Handy for my welding helmet, and larger cases of sockets, pullers, etc. 6 drawers on the left 2/3. One rear drawer. Came out of the tool and die department of a local factory. Heavy duty! Have 2 Craftsman 3 drawer mid boxes and top box on top. Have a vice mounted on the end above the cabinet.
  18. "Hey, you guys!......" Some of you are old enough to remember what movie that came from....
  19. We had a party line when I was young. The neighbor lady was a busy body. I remember Dad on a call with his landlord. He could hear noises in the background and stopped mid sentence: "Peggy, you can hang up now!" A click occurred shortly afterwards.
