If I don't answer--------leave a message and I will get back with you shortly.

We get so many crank sales calls-------I don't always answer.

Ok Will do. I'll be calling from a Louisiana 318 area code cell phone.

Anson, I'm glad to know you don't answer your phone every time it rings either. Between the political, crank and hackers, we give them every opportunity to leave a message and I can get back to them. Other than some hackers, who say my granddaughter is in a prison in Africa and needs $1,500 bail immediately or we may never see her again, they don't leave messages. So I can't call them back. We have cell phones, but I love our land line. They use such tricky names as US Government, IRS, Montana, Missoula, Havre, Billings, Hardin, etc. when my wife's sweet little message comes up, telling them to leave a message, they always hang up. I know most of them are "robocalls." What really ticks me is when one comes through on my cell phone. Unless they are one of my contacts, they don't get answered either. So.... If any of you ever need to contact me, call our land line and leave a message. I'd be more than happy to call you back! 

Not much happening around here. I did go to the shop Thursday and Friday. The most times in one week all winter. Snow and cold are a deterrent for this old guy anymore. My shop buddy, Kaiser Jäger is busy trying to sniff out and catch the Mike and Ike candy I threw into the snowbank by the shop door.

The snow is receding at Mike's snowpile too.

Not a lot on Facebook either. Here are a couple of IHC trucks at a store-bar somewhere. The visible gas pump says they may be delivering and gassing up? One Grain Belt Beer truck and one CocaCola truck.

This is a hammermill demonstration at a McCormick-Deering dealership in 1934.

I've never heard of Sunshine combines, but there are two Farmall tractors pulling them cutting some kind of crop, somehow? I sure don't understand those headers. Maybe one of you will know?

This is a friend's grandfather. They still had the 44" Red River Special threshing machine, but no longer had the steam engine that ran it, so they double belted their 15-30 and 22-36 McCormick Deering tractors to it, since one alone wouldn't turn it amply.

Last, but not least, are these people with an early new IH Farmall cub, likely 1947. Since a Farmall Cub is the first thing I ever got to drive by myself, I've always had a little spot in my heart for them. I've said it a hundred times if I've said it once; after school in the first grade, Dad would have me go nearly a mile round trip, to get the milk cows with the Cub in low gear. That happened on our farm, or it was an IH Tractor on a Montana Farm. I don't know where this one was? Gary😉

I believe those sunshine combines are from austrailia . the headers are called stripper type, if i'm thinking correctly they don't cut the plants, but somehow strip the grain off,with "v " 's cut in a bar, and a round hole in the bar at the bottom of the V.    uh,  maybe better look it up?   I can't help thinking they will choke up..( notice no reel).
