  1. Never Fear!! These good 'ol boys will figure it out!!! And Lorenzo will be famous worldwide!! Well sorta famous..........
  2. Upon hearing that her elderly grandfather had just passed away, Katie went straight to her grandparent's house to visit her 95 year-old grandmother and comfort her. When she asked how her grandfather had died, her grandmother replied, "He had a heart attack while we were making love on Sunday morning." Horrified, Katie told her grandmother that 2 people nearly 100 years old having sex would surely be asking for trouble. "Oh no, my dear," replied granny. "Many years ago, realizing our advanced age, we figured out the best time to do it was when the church bells would start to ring. It was just the right rhythm. Nice and slow and even. Nothing too strenuous, simply in on the Ding and out on the Dong." She paused to wipe away a tear, and continued, "He'd still be alive if that damn ice cream truck hadn't come along."
  3. Here is a pic of a airborne IH DC-3. l might be wrong, but l was thinking IH had two DC-3's along with the earlier B-23....?
  4. Well, after close to 7 years of planning, collecting trucks and pickups and styrene plastic, Booger Creek Gin is starting to take shape. l built a mockup out of 1/4 in. foam board held together with painter's tape for templates when l start cutting corrugated plastic hopefully l won't make many costly mistakes. l'm hoping to build it as a "multi era" gin. That is, things from the 50's and 60's to the present. lt will still have the "suction shed" on the front to empty cotton trailers but also a "module feeder" on the side to take care of the round and rectangle modules.
  5. Gary, l hope you can get things straightened out posting again soon. Like l posted earlier, not too long ago, for several weeks l had trouble posting here on Red Power forums. Seems like it just started over night, lasted a few weeks and then just as quick it started working right and l haven't had any problems since. Anson, same as for Gary l hope you can get things sorted out too. l enjoy Red Power a lot but two of the main reasons l come here every morning is to check IH Tractors on Montana Farm and to see the progress that Tony Ramos is making on his projects. l just hope ya'll can get your computer problems worked out soon and things get back to "normal" here. Here is my e-mail address: twostepn2020@gmail.com
  6. My 5 year old great-granddaughter told me this joke last night. A mexican magician told the audience he will disappear on the count of three. He says "Uno, dos...." *POOF* He disappeared without a tres......
  7. That reminds of a story my Mom used to tell. Right after WW ll, my Dad and Mom came to Texas from Okla. along several other family members to "pull bolls", or pick cotton. They were working for a elderly man named Mr. Ford and his wife. One morning they were by the windmill filling up water jugs when a truck pulled in with a brand new John Deere G on the back. The driver unchained and unloaded it and left. Mr. Ford asked my Dad to pull the flywheel and start it. After a few turns, it started and Mr. Ford climbed in the seat and found a gear to put it in. Then he gave the hand clutch a hard pull and then did a little wheelie and took off. Mr. Ford nearly fell off the seat but hung on to the steering wheel. The tractor started doing zig zags and going in circles. Mr. Ford is hollering "Whoa dammit!! Gee!! Haw!! Stop!! Haw!! Gee!!". My Dad ran over and jumped on the drawbar and reached around Mr. Ford and pushed the clutch handle forward. After the dust settled, come to find out Mr. Ford neglected to tell anyone he didn't know how to drive. While all that was happening, Mrs. Ford was standing on the porch hollering "l told you it was a waste of money!! We don't need no tractor when there is two perfectly good mules over there in the pen!!" Mr. Ford turned to my Dad and said "Son, what did you do in the war?" Dad told him " l was driver and sometimes a gunner on a tank." Mr. Ford replied "l reckon if you could handle a tank, you can drive that damn thing. You want a permanent job working for me?" And that's how they wound up in Texas. Mr. Ford kept the JD G for one year and then traded it on a Farmall M. And my Dad eventually taught Mr. Ford how to drive and he bought a brand new 1953 Ford Crestline.
  8. This has been discussed in a few farm toy groups l'm in on Facebook. Seems like a lot of collectors (especially younger ones) just don't have a lot of interest in the older models of tractors. Another thing that manufacturers like Ertl and SpecCast don't take much interest in is cotton harvesting equipment. They claim there isn't enough interest.
  9. l think he also invented a food chopper didn't he? "slice and dice!!"
  10. And Christmas music on the loud speakers......
  11. So hopefully that means you have some future projects in the works to share with us?? ?
