Spending too much time on here, reading the same stuff over and over to see if I missed things! Starting to get into my "Nasty" mode in my postings I think! I get this way when it's cold and I can't get out and work on my stuff. Been buying too much on epay now and stuff still coming in! Wife wants to cancel my membership on epay, heh!  Haven't told her about the latest tractor I bought and have to retreive out of State yet!  Pulling my own reins in now, gotta be paying the piper for awhile.  Garage is so full of stuff, can barey work in there. Need to strip and paint many things, too cold for that. Have to make a priority list for things to do. I'll never finish  alot of stuff this year, I'm sure. Tractors all set-up for snow, then none comes! Just gets colder!  Man, I wish it was at least March!  Maybe I should start bringing things into the kitchen to work on......yeah......that's a work station!  Sink is parts washer....oven for heating things.......Naw!  Wife wouldn't appreciate that probly.  hmmm.......she works long hours in day when I'm still home............. :tmi:  :smilewink:

March will be here before you know it.  Have you thought about insulating your shop and heating it?

It IS already! Just to be able to work I have to remove a tractor or two and shuffle stuff around to do that. Then when all tired and dirty, gotta cram it all back in!  Get's old Quick!  Gotta get rid of some stuff this year, stick to what I have and finish something!  I have four big Molines in a three car garage and all run/drive, just take up space. Really need a gravel floored addition on garage just to keep finished ones in. Another 24 x 24 on back would work for Me!  Even without windows and just a sliding door. Wife says NO, better to Loose some of the stuff than to accomadate!  She threatens to call junk man if I die or get sick in future!  I can't decide to move the tractors on, or her!! :mad2:  :rolling:

I've been lucky to work outside so far. Got a few more things for the trailer to do. But the coldest part is yet to come. Then I'll be setting here staring at the screen.

Would have to be a monkey (small too) to get into that "phone booth" tractor! Wonder what you can SEE from in there! Weight and rope on door to close it??  Patio on roof for sunning! Looks like something from Oriental country!  Can we say "FLEX" when you drive?

Happy to join the "grump-off" proceedings!  I hear ya on that "surly cabin fever" feeling.  I was already bummed out after losing that 4 acre "farm" deal and "spring-like" winter weather here wasn't helping much...  After fighting the last 2 3.5" "blizzards" I started to come out of it a little.  I finally kicked myself in the a$$ and decided to clear out the back of the shop to make room for a drillpress and some other fabbing stuff...  Now I need more 5# bags for all the10# bags worth of "stuff".  There's just never enough room and no matter how much room you have, like the tide it all seems to fill in the corners and overheads... 

 

I WANT SNOW!
