My Saturday started with a visit from member Bolens 1000 (Brian, aka Doc Bolens). ....Brian & his Dad drove 6-1/2 hours each way to pick up some stuff. .....It was an extremely enjoyable visit for me, but our 4 hours together passed too quickly.

Despite my attempts to lure Brian to the Jacktown engine show, they elected to make a quick (??) trip back home.

After Brian and his Dad left, I talked my wife into going to the Jacktown show with me. ....We got there early afternoon, and we ran into two other couples that we know. ....I lost some viewing time then, but I managed to see about 80% of the show & swap areas before things started windng down.

I had the pleasure of meeting 2 GTT members who had tractors on display. ....Alc had two David Bradley's there, and Scott Glover (I didn't think to ask his screen name) had a rare Eclipse Ranger rider that caught my eye, as well as a handful of Bantam tractors on display.

I enjoyed the time I spent talking with these two members, and I would have liked to have spent more time with them, but I felt guilty for leaving my wife sitting alone for such a long time.

To Al and Scott: Thank you for spending your time with me! ....I really enjoyed meeting & talking with you! .....Also, a special "Thanks!" to Al, for some very kind words!

Thank You Brian, Al, & Scott !!!!

It was great to finally meet you Bruce!
Wish we could have stayed longer and went to the show.
I'll post some pictures of the stuff I brought back when I get it unloaded :D

Bruce it was great to meet you in person . Wish I met Scott to interduce myself . I saw Scott's tractor when I was taking pictures but the batteries went dead just before that and when I came back around to finish up picture taking I didn't remember where it was . Old age I guess lol . I'll be posting pictures tonight .
