Really busy, so not much computer time, nor GT time. Been spraying corn, cutting hay, and of course dealing with milking chores.
Too worn out at the end of the day to do anything more. Should have things kind of caught up by the time the LAGT show comes to Evansville. Sure hope so, as I WILL be going regardless!

Meeting me isn't gonna be anything special....just me! LOL Not sure if I'll drive or ride. If I drive, I'll be pulling a trailer with my restored D4-10 in tow.

You may be "Lil ole me" to you, but to us... Well, where do you buy your capes anyways?

Hope to someday have the privilege of meeting you myself. For now, I'll have to settle with asking George to shake you hand once for me.

Alan, I would much like to meet you also. No capes here, determination at times, but sometimes just frustrations. I know plenty of people that work harder, and longer hours than I do. You guys just don't have to listen to them moan like you do me! LOL
Just went out to check on a heifer close to calving. I put her up in the barn to keep a closer eye on her. Tomorrow we put up a small jag of hay for the young calves, and spread more ammonium nitrate on the corn.

Awoke to find the heifer had "just" had her calf. She had a baby heifer and both momma & calf are doing great. Then I raked & baled some hay. Just a few bales for our weaned calves. We'll cut & chop the rest in a couple weeks.

And the following pics are especially for Brian (TD&H). He has a love for the old Massey Super 90.

Thanks Daniel, That is one sweet "SUPER 90". The one I spent hundreds of hours of had 28" rears and yours appears to have 24", also it had the taller front spindles, top of front axle was at the top of the front tire. I didn't know you could get the in your configuration. I wonder if your was some kind of utility model and his was a row crop with adjustable wide front.

Ether way, that is so nice to see a "90" alive and getting a workout. Can't wait to see in person.. Thanks So Much for sharing Daniel!!. :thumbs: :tractor_rocks: :smiley-score010:

When you come up & drive it, you only have a few minutes of half decent steering. The pump is worn out, and once the oil warms & thins, there is zero "power" in the power steering! And a replacement pump is just over $1,000.00! We once had the vo-tech school build up the aluminum body, then machine it down. But their weld didn't penetrate & some of the aluminum weld peeled off. I may end up trying to build it up myself & then milling it down. Can't make it worse than it is, so won't hurt to try.
It steers "ok" when rolling faster, but moving slow & steering is a nightmare!
