  1. After losing my border collie Harvey back in February (13 yrs.) I wasn’t sure if I should get another dog that could probably outlive me.  It was kind of a lonely Spring without a dog though and when I found a litter of red border collie/Australian shepherd puppies nearby on Craigslist, I decided to take the chance.  Been a week now and seems to be going ok so far.  Wish me luck with the whole “puppy” thing!  This is Molly60D699D6-9FB9-4018-A6C3-D0284BACA011.thumb.jpeg.04eb7557aee6937ad26f519175f82418.jpeg

  2. Heard him live at the National FFA convention in the late 90’s.  I have a number of his books also.  One of my favorites of his poems was the legend of the cow attack.  He will be missed.

  3. We have the same problem with them on the edge of a field next to a pasture.  I have started scattering handfuls of shelled corn on the edge hoping they will fill up on that and leave the planted corn alone.  Mixed results so far.  Your solution is more permanent!

  4. It could have ended up at Basler Aviation in Wisconsin for a turbine conversion…that is where they found “That’s all brother”, the first c47 to carry paratroopers over the English Channel before D Day.  The C47 was the military version of the DC3.  Anyway, the N number could clear up what became of the International airplane.

  5. I have a late 750 that I pull with a mx120 using a closed center adapter I got from my case new holland dealer years ago.  I did run it with a 1086 by using a Deere open center kit on the drill, but I think depth pressure in no till conditions was better with the adapter.  Will try to get a picture of the adapter later…pretty simple.

    Guys...."Groseth vs. Case/Tenneco" was a lawsuit that endured for what seemed like an eternity.

    IIRC, Case finally settled out of court with Groseth....in the mid 1990s. The lawsuit went back and forth for nearly a decade. Seems like Case settled for nearly $3 million. Its been a long time ago, so I might be off on the dollar amount.

    As for Groseth, he turned around and opened up a car dealership....I thought it was a Chevrolet dealership at one time.

     

    Groseth did become a gm dealership selling Chevrolet, Buick and Cadillac for several years.  The location of his dealership is now a strip mall.  Marks machinery, the Case dealer that was awarded the caseih franchise just sent us a letter this past week announcing a merger with the Titan machinery group.  

  7. We bought one new in 2013.  Has around 130,000 miles on it now.  Ours is the XLT model with 3.5 engine and six speed.  Averages 22-23 mpg. Probably the most comfortable car I have ever owned with infinitely adjustable driving positions and room to haul seven if you want to utilize the third seat.  You can fold the second row of seats down too for even more cargo area.   It has been trouble free so far too and is only on the third set of tires.  We really like ours!  Good luck.

  8. I am pretty sure the pickup can handle the weight, but the size of the wheel/tire combination means that they would have to lean on or rest on the sides of the box and could damage them.  Do you have a friend or neighbor who has a flatbed trailer you could borrow?  That would be the safest way to transport them.  Good luck.

  9. I am sorry for your loss Sandhiller.  This is a sad coincidence…..my border collie Harvey passed the same day as Gus and he was born 31 March 2009.  The only fault that dogs have is that they don’t live long enough.647B52B1-A529-4B27-B8BB-0740ECB39C92.thumb.jpeg.58fb24f5cb597ad61417785b0ce2d8b3.jpeg

    There are so many options for this one. The best one that comes to my mind is this

    "... And tell those lazy fruit farmers NOT TO CUT THE DAMN SHEET METAL on their orchard tractors"

     

    And don’t cut air filter holes in the hoods on 66 and 86 series!
