Glad to see, you guys down south, are finally getting that much needed rain.

Rainy days means shop time. Get those projects lined up in the shop, before the
rain starts.


Myself, I'll be working. I might get some seat time, and cut the lawns tomorrow.

Funny you should ask... as we're doing something a little different. Moonlight tour of a wolf reserve. While there going to have dinner with a guy I worked with 15 years ago at Ford New Holland. Going to be a weird day.

I'm starting 2 weeks vacation tomorrow Will. :dancingbanana: Among other things I have a bunch of GT related stuff to work at while i'm off and who knows how much I'll get accomplished. I hope to get some red paint on my MF8 and maybe get an engine into it. No real plans for this weekend though. Got to catch up on my rest a bit. I've been driving it hard all week. Staying up til 11pm and getting up at 4:45 is taking it's toll on me.

I am helping Harry move out, some personall issues arrose and he has to be out this weekend. It is going to be a 3 day thing, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. I wanted to go pick up a few "things" but can't. So, until I go get them, you guys can wonder what they are.

That sounds interesting, just hope they don't have one sneaking around loose in the dark. In ten years of living a couple miles away, I haven't seen it yet and you are coming from the other side of the state to see it. Have fun.

Closest tractor shows are three hours away this weekend. There are two not far from each other and I just did a show right in between them three weeks ago so I'm setting these two out.
The MRS. is begging for some mini golf so we will likely play that and do some serious relaxing the rest of the time. There is a bunch of "stuff" around here I need to be working on. I think my medicine is out of whack because lately I have a lot of quit in me. :(

Ryan, are you trying to drive us nuts wondering what you are going to get? We have to wait all weekend to find out and it is an extra long one too! Parts or a new tractor?

Saturday is one of the volunteer days at the Wheatland Festival Site. Going to take my A/C 919, front blade and tiller, there was lots of wind damage in the Pines and much clean up to be done. Saturday evening and Sunday morning will be spent getting the house and yard spiffed up for Kathys end of summer music party. The band and several others will be over 2:00 Sunday for some good old music, good food and lots of chat, maybe even a boat ride if the weathers decent. Monday is undecided yet but will most likely be spent on stuff around here, we hate to travel on the holiday weekends.

Everyone have fun and be safe!!
