l was digging through some files and found this pic. lnfo said they are cotton seed haulers at a cotton seed oil mill in Slaton, Texas. l recognize one truck as a International, but don't know what the other 3 are.

The two "semi" trucks on the right look like ca. 1937 Chevy trucks? Gary

Glad you are back Gary. Hopefully things smooth out some. Too many other reasons to be gloomy in today’s world. This doesn’t need to add to it.

Professor---

Lots of confusion in your above post referring to Mike and his rank.  But I do remember you  explaining some of that before.

So should I refer to Mike as "Kid" Colonel, Sarge, or Farmall Kid???

Sure am glad he had his utilities on in the picture-------or I would have been really confused as to who wuz who.  (you put your stamp right on his face!!!!!!)😊

*******

Furthermore-------"had dibs" is a past tense phrase.

"My" is as of now (current)!!!! 

I really appreciate Roger taking care of it for me.

********

"Hoe house" and git your favorite "hoe" can be very confusing in itself. 

Did you mean "favorite ho"-------------or hoe (as if for chopping)????

Either one doesn't seem to fit my needs anymore!!!!!!!!!!!

🤐😏🤣🐴

 

Good luck to Mike and his troops on the fire detail.

Hoe is as if for chopping weeds, Anson. I should have known you'd gravitate to the other end of that spectrum? I know Marines and Navy landed in ports and they weren't intent on chopping weeds, but were looking for the hoe house. Actually, I have a couple of old hand pushed garden cultivators. If I sent you one, it may keep you away from the hoe house? When you deliver the watermelons in the 1912 IHC AutoWagon, you can take it with you, put it in the bagage compartment of the airliner, when you fly back to Mississippi!

Be best for you to keep all of those hoes, shovels, rakes, handtools,  etc resting and cool up there in Montana.

Temp was 101° here this afternoon with extremely high humidity.  Heat index musta been in excess of 115.  Too hot to breathe.

Just ran across this old black (congregation) church located in Estill, Mississippi-----note the window A/C and chimney sitting side by side.

I don't know how old it is-----I am 78 and it seems to have looked the same for my lifetime.  I snapped this picture several years ago------was still active as of that time.

Many photographers have photographed this church through the years-------it is definitely an old Mississippi Delta landmark.

"Calm before the storm"???

Its a bright and sunny day here right now--------you would never suspect that hurricane Ida is sneaking up the Mississipi River toward us.

Expecting 30--40 mph winds----and 3--8" of rain.  Should have moved on through come Tuesday.

Hurricanes and Harvest don't mix well.

I spent a couple days at the Half Century of Progress show in Rantoul IL late last week. Here  are a few pics you might like and a video of one hooked to the sled.

Mistuh Hillbilly------

We are not heading for "them that hills" yet.

We are 300+ miles inland-------looks as if the eye is stearing slightly eastward which is leaving us right along the westernmost path.  Rainfall and wind looking lighter for right now.  Keeping fingers crossed-----but that doesn't help folks to the East of us.

Major damage and effects in south Louisiana and Gulf Coast as I type.

Glad your not in the worst of it at moment Anson. Let's hope you escape too much damage. 

    Thoughts and prayer with those who will see more damage.

Glad that this thread is back. Now l can get back to posting pics and asking what is it....lol

Speaking of which......what kind of tractor is this? lnfo on the pic says taken in the '20's. Whatever it is still exist and is parked in the "Y" median of a state highway in a small town near here, Albany, Texas. There is also a old wooden cable tool rig there.

I think that old drilling rig is mounted on a 12-25 Crossmotor Minneapolis tractor.  The narrow front end, the wheel/spoke pattern, and the belt pull on the side in front of the back wheel makes it the nearest match I can think of.  It looks like they remounted the radiator and fuel tank in the front.  I worked on one of those 25 years ago and I found a video of one in operation and the link is below.  Not one of Minneapolis better ideas . . . even for those early years.

Glad your all here. I was going to get some water melon pictures of my 6 or 8 drought stunted plants most even made 2 or 3 melons. But since I was thinking this would be gone longer, never took pics. Turned the heifers in as one calved about 10 to 20 days early. Need them out of the brush so easier to watch. 

 

As most farmers next year will be better.

LARGEST GATHERING Of Early IH Tractors! Albany Pioneer Days September 16-19, 2021 Albany, MN     

I posted information about this on the General Forum a while back when this thread was down but figured it was more in tune with those that follow Gary's thread.  I was not at the show but some friends of mine sent me photos of just some of the early tractors that were there and they are shown below.  I've also attached a video of some of the action.

I didn't know what that tractor was, Roger, but I'd certainly have to agree about it being an altered Crossmotor 12-25 Minneapolis. I haven't seen any of these earlier cross motor Minneapolis tractors before. Actually the only one I've been around was a later model at Belgrade, Montana that they operated at the Barnes Steam and Power Show in the 1980s and 1990s. I know you've tried to teach me the horsepower ratings of these in the past, but my thinker is running low on thinker fluid, Roger. (No, it's not the same as "blinker fluid.")

PS: thanks for calling me this morning and letting me know this has been resurrected back to life, Roger!
