Hey all, the colors are created on the photo using adobe photoshop. I taught it while teaching computer classes at a CC
a few years ago when living in Fla. It's not the cheapest graphics program out there but there are variants, and a free version clone "GIMP". Check it out if you have an artistic side. As far as the tractor goes, this started out as a joke. I have one neighbor who is a (shudder) Cubs fan, and another a Cardinals fan. (AZ is a lot like Fla; everyone is from somewhere, the only "natives" are the Navajo.) Anyway, I thought I'd have some fun with them, emailing the doctored photo. Then I figured you guy's would get a kick out of it too. I don't have to worry about Casey, I'll let the "Mountaineer" deal with that
. The tractor colors were being worked out, when "she who must be obeyed" decided that's the way she wants it. I wanted to paint it orange and call it the "Kubota wannabe". During the lessor cold spells (I swear my garage is 20 deg colder than outside) I put together a receiver hitch to attach to the sleave hitch, and found a 1600 lb cart on the local craigslist. I have a swisher trail mower I pulled around the place ( no need for finish mowing out here) and have a fabricated "water wagon" for her to pull around and water trees, hence the need to switch hitch types. I guess I could have made them all the same, but I built a drawbar for the Kubota a while ago with a receiver, and just followed that path. As it warms up progress should get better, and right now my attention has been diverted to 2 generators I picked up and are working on. You guys are a lot of fun and inspiration so I hope I have something worth contributing to the forum. Cheers.
