  1. I think it was in a couple of days-----took it out --washed in running water---rubbed it with a small wire brush---put back in for a day ---washed again ---and it came out as you see it
  2. Probably a lot of you know about this----but in case you don't----I will post. My buddy put me on to this----wish I had known about it 50 years ago. First pic is before----- after soaking in common white distilled vinegar. Be sure to wash in water after removing -----then put a primer on quick or it will rust pretty fast. I use phosphoric acid
  3. Southern tier ----Elmira area. That poor old Mc Cormick Deering has been sitting in the hedge row for a long time. Many years ago I used to ride on the fender while dad drove.

  5. They still deliver my coal with a truck like this-
  6. Went through this many years ago with an old house. previous owners had painted over beautiful chestnut wood moulding. Found a shop that refinished furniture and took the moulding to them. They had a large vat that they dipped the moulding in. Worked out very well and it wasn't that expensive.
  7. Thanks to everyone who took these amazing pictures. And a big shout out to all the folks in South Dakota that made this show happen-----even with all of the covid 19 crap going on. A job well done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Many years ago we had a 3 strand barb wire fence [wood post]------lighting hit the top strand and popped the staples off of about 1/2 mile of the fence.
  11. Local news here-----4 guys putting up a metal tree stand in an electrical storm----2 dead other 2 in hospital
  12. I have a coon problem here---I also have bunch of barn cats. I found glazed doughnuts work very well----I crumble them up and put in a small dish in the back of the trap.
  13. Two local mom and pop stores here-----One say no more ground beef avialable-----other priced at $7.49 a pound------------------
  14. What's the story on the Scout?
  15. On the subject dowsing-------My buddy and I were discussing this a while ago. He is a dowser----took a branch off of a willow tree and walked around the yard in a few minuets the branch dove to the ground. He told me to try it-----walked the same place he did nothing happened. He then took my hands and we walked around again-----when we came to the 'spot' I could not keep the branch from diveing to the ground. So it must be something in a persons body that causes the dowsing effect.
  16. We always called them---Sparrow Hawks------but I don't know their proper name
  17. That's a real nice old Chevy truck !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  18. Went to the annual farm toy show in Benten Center NY yesterday-----Notice on the door said they were only allowed to have 90 people in the building at on time because of the Chinese virus. Upon entering we were instructed to wipe on hands with antseptic wipes or put plastic gloves on or we could not come in the building.
  19. Like other have said----this was a neighborhood flock that roamed from farm to farm
  20. I remember that lever-----but don't recall what it was for
  21. Its been a few years-----but I think it goes like this with the lever in towards the center of the tractor------low range is to the front and high to the back to get into standard operating range----put the lever half way between low and high----you should be able to push it to the left----then pull it back in to gear hope this helps ----doing this from memory
  22. Just went through this------couldn't hear all the BS with my buddies at the coffee shop---had to do something-----went to a hearing center in the local hospital-------doctor checked my ears, and gave me hearing test [paid for by medicare]-----explained what the problem is-and what had to be done to correct it------took a wax impression of my ear and ordered a custom fit hearing aid for me---------$2000--love it
