  1. Jeremy Died at 12:05 today, The Result of the Fire Injuries, Thank you for your Support for our Family. Jeremy Droscha "Cooter", My Son, Was Involved in a House Explosion & Fire. There 130 Year old farmhouse, Had Black Pipe LP gas Lines installed around 1930, That Old steel Pipe Rusted at a Threaded Pipe "Tee" and slowly leaked a Plum of LP gas into the lower level of their Home. His Wife Jessica, A school teacher at our local School System took Herself and two of the children, Mason, 10 & Hannah, 7 with her to school that Morning. Jeremy and 4 year old Aubrey were in the farm. Around Noon Jeremy & Aubrey Went to the Farmhouse for Lunch, Aubrey went to Her Bedroom on the Second floor at the front of the House, Jeremy went to His Farm Office also on the Second Floor, (an Old Attic area He Remodeled with Drywall & Wall Decorations). 30 feet & 2 Bedrooms from His Daughter Aubrey's Bedroom door. "Fire Marshal Investigators Opinion is" the LP gas fumes Drifted through the lower level of the House, a Kitchen appliance Motor Ignited the Gas, Resulting in a Tremendous Explosion, The explosion was directly under Jeremy's Office, The Impact Removed the Three Outside walls of the old house, sending the walls 25 feet away. The Office Floor, Contents and Jeremy Fell into the Firey mess below him, One end of the Floor was still attached by the Joist Hangers, Jeremy Crawled up the slanted floor towards his Daughters closed Bedroom door, Jeremy Wrapped his 4 Year old Daughter in a Heavy Blanket, And headed out the front Door. Farming Neighbors across the Road Witnessed the Ball of flames exiting the rear of the Farmhouse. The 75 year old Husband & Wife Ran to Jeremy & Hannah's Aid. The Neighbor Tackled Jeremy to the Ground and Proceed to Extinguish Jeremy's burning Cloths & Body, 4 year old Aubrey was unharmed and stood and watched. Our Eaton Township Hall is 2 miles from Jeremy's Farm, Our Local EMT Ambulance was stationed outside a noon that Day, ERT Driver witnessed the Ball of Flame from the Parking Lot and drove Straight to the Flames, EMT's made the 911 Fire Department Call. Jeremy was treated on the spot. Neighbor's Phoned Me,..I was ahead of the Fire trucks. I was able to Speak a few Short sentences to Him, I Think He Said "I'll Be Fine", When I Last saw Jeremy in the Back of the Ambulance, He was without any Body Hair and Clothes , his skin was dark & bloody, The ambulance Pulled away from me with My Hand still on the rear window, Jeremy was taken to the Burn unit in Lansing Michigan, then shortly Flown to the Burn unit in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Jeremy is in a Drug Induced Coma where he will be for a couple of weeks, he Has a plumbing down his throat, his Lungs are burnt internally, Jeremy's first surgery is today to remove the Fabric that melted into his skin, The Back of his head, Back, Leg's & forearm's have 3rd Degree Burns. Jeremy has 60% of his body in this condition. Jessica Droscha's Facebook Page, Has Most of the Current Health information posted there, If Anyone of you knows how to post this information in an easier way, Please Do, I need to focus my time on Family. We Need your Prayers for Jeremy.
  2. Yes!, The Government Paid any participating Livestock farmer with USDA Money to Fence off our streams that cows were drinking directly from the stream. A USDA engineer Designed a system tailor made for our Pasture & cow Population, all "Free" Money!!! Our Heifer Pasture & Large County maintained stream is About a Mile away from our Main dairy farm. Joined to our main farm by field headland to field headland. We purchased a "Water Wheel" pump that pumped the water in the Creek that the animals had been drinking from, to a Large water tank on the Creek Bank, The Hose was incorporated into the Creek bank, secured by heavy brackets, A Large Cement pad was poured near a fenced corral, where the water tank rested. The slow movement of the water stream turned the "chained to the Ditch bank" Double 3 foot diameter water wheel unit and the water was pumped to the Cow tank...Excellent!! The Next spring,.. 7 inches of Rainfall in 4 hours changed the local Creek bank Landscape, We were busy at the Main Dairy Farm Protecting our Million Gallon Manure Storage pit, trying to Keep all The Liquid slurry from over running it's banks. Two Weeks later a Friend of ours's remarked about a "Two Wheeled Fulton Steamboat" looking thing, floating down the Thornapple River, We hadn't even given the Anchored water pump a thought., Every thing but part of the wooden damn was washed away, USDA Never Returned to Review the project, We never rebuilt any part of the water system, the Heifers enjoyed wading in the water anyway.

  3. "Good Lord" That pretty Much "Sums" up any Knowledge I have about our 45 years of Marriage, "I" also Watched how to role a Cigar!! Thanks, I Haven't ever seen this Movie Clip, Jim Droscha
  4. We are from the Center Michigan, a 4 Hour drive to the east, Is an area of Ontario Canada that has many acres in tobacco. Visited with Relatives Near Orangeville, several years ago, the Topic came up, the next Day we saw the "Drying Barns" and Guarded, Fenced properties with fields of tobacco, "Organic Tobacco" Production, The Signage of Organic Tobacco, "No Spraying" sign's on the roadsides for the Local Road Commision to obey. My 2 Cents, Jim Droscha
  5. "Cooter" on this site has had several Dampeners rebuilt, I think an Individual in Washington State rebuilds them. I will find some information. If I find the correct address, I think One of you fellas Gave this information to Us. My 2 cents, Jim Droscha
  6. This Arena is a comfortable place to be, A few other sites I have viewed can elevate a persons Blood Pressure, I Have distanced Myself from most of that Nonsense. Life is full of Changes, I have Never felt Controlled at this "Red Power" site, Rules are rules. My 2-22-22 cents, Jim Droscha
  7. I think It could be restored to resemble an International Wagon Box, IH didn't Stamp it's own steel for the Wagon's. Our Dairy Farm had Used IH self unloading wagons in the Early 1960's, I think those wagon's Lasted only 2 years of every day use. "State Wide" A Agriculture Wagon Manufacture & Distributer located in Leslie Michigan, Had Acres & Acres of Unassembled wagon Parts. This company "Painted" assembled rolling wagon frames & Boxes any color that was needed. "State Wide" had it's own paint color's, Many of these wagon running gears can be found under flat rack wagon's at auction sales in Michigan. The "State Wide" colors were 1960 Case tractor Paint colors, Orange on the axle hub's & tongue, Cream paint on most of the rest of the wagon frame. This same Wagon you are looking at was also in Agriculture "Ford Blue"!!, My 2 cents, Jim Droscha
  8. You have got My curiosity up, When the Transfer cases were removed, was it the same gear failure in each transfer case?? Every spring the fluid levels are checked on all of our Equipment, the site glass on the transfer case is a no brainer, Thanks, Jim Droscha
  9. Interesting about Transfer case out, I can only imagine if a seal on a spinning shaft failed the oil would leak out. I don't have any knowledge of a 2+2 case failing, Other parts may contribute to the chance of the front axle not driving, I'm a Real fan of 2+2's, Several of our Neighbors have Farmed with 3388, 3588 & 3788's, Interestingly All the Tractors were tuned to the same Horsepower!! The Average Person couldn't distinguish the difference between a 3388 from a 3788. If you could own this 3588 for 3 Grand, You will have received equal to the "Golden Ring" at the local Fair this spring!! Send a few pictures if you can. Jim Droscha
  10. Excellent Pictures Neighbors!! I was at a Church Board Meeting today, Sunday Afternoon, I was Good for about quarter of an hour before I had to take a break for "The Committee chairman" began his, Slow...Long...Winded...Talk about Property management problems,.. yes,... Snow removal Punctuality of the guy with 4X4 ford pickup & Front Blade in the Church Parking Lot during our Snowy season. **Summer Day's,**.. With "Red tractors" is Just what I needed, I was able to share some screen time with the other fella's setting near Me!! We Lied in Church today!! Our little group told the speaker we were looking at the Church budget Items that were posted on the Church website, from My cellphone.!! The Number of My Close Friends on this Property Management team that Appreciated, Loved & remarked about the Large Number of farm Activity's posted in Pictures!! Thanks Again Neighbors,...By the Way, ..this Written statement will count as... "Professing My Sin's" in public..."I Lied to another Christian".... I love that "God" loves Me!!😁 Have a Blessed Day!! Jim Droscha
  11. There was A Thread on this site Last Fall, I couldn't locate It. In your Photo you have pictured the Vacuum Brake booster, The front Half is Painted white. My 1600 load star was leaking under Braking conditions, a Simple test was if we found Brake fluid in our New Vacuum Boster. We sent our unit to a Rebuilder, Made a Complete Difference!! We also thought we Had replaced or Rebuilt everything Possible,....But Brake fluid was Slipping past that Shaft in real world Braking Conditions. The folks that rebuilt my unit were in Chicago, IL, I can find there address if you need me to. My 2 Cents, Jim Droscha
  12. A Few of Us Farm Boys Purchased our Dream Cars, We Purchased this 1970 Hemi Roadrunner in 1977, 488 miles on the speedometer. We have this Plymouth in our Car trailer, Mostly Raced at special race events, "Family History" are fun Stories. Jim Droscha
  13. Being "A Mopar Guy" I Love seeing original Paint on Chrysler Built Vehicles,😂 What a Terrible paint Program! Nice looking Truck, I wouldn't Worry about the Speed of the Truck Just Yet. The rear end in a original 318 powered truck won't take much acceleration grief, This Little truck probably weigh's 3600 pounds, I would be hunting for a 8 3/4 with 4.10 gears, a lot of those units available at Swap Meet's, You Might find a Chrysler 518 Transmission to help with Fuel economy. A little amount of work and a 518 will perform and be reliable behind a 440. A Truly "Fun Family" Project, Good Job!! Jim Droscha
  14. Nice Display of your Family's farm. Top Picture Has the shadow of a "Old Aeronca Champ" flying the camara man from farm to farm. Diversified Farming Enterprize in the top Photo, Evenly spaced row's in the Garden, Makes a Person wonder what the Future Generations will say about the Pictures we take today of our Farming Operations. Thanks Neighbor, Jim Droscha
  15. Michigan Farm Bureau Also Had tours of this part of the Hawaiian Islands, My wife said "We could Farm here!!!" While touring that Rural part of the Islands during the 1990's, Obviously we Missed that Opportunity!! I wouldn't have blended into that community. Did any of you Folks Visit the "Dole" Pineapple Farm's in Hawaii??, I understand that those farms are vacant. Nice Group of Islands to Visit, I wouldn't live there. Jim Droscha
