I could not Believe I would ever see one of these again. My Dad had one of these when I was a kid. Remember walking behind that old girl when the handle bars were over my shoulders. Dad built a sullcy behind it because we had a lot of lawn to cut and he still needed us full of P and V when it came time to milk the cows. Even used it when the old girls wanted to stay at the farthest end of the pasture when it was time milk. It was power for a hammer mill I built out of an old generator. Ran it with 200 inch belt from the combine off the rope start pulley of the motor. Looking back I am not sure how Dad could afford me for all the stuff we invented with stuff on the farm.
Did not do the college thing because we pretty much learned everything we needed to know on the farm and in the service (Army 538th Const. Eng. - Thailand 68-70).

Well we will quit boring you and get to bed.
