Growing up in the 50s and 60s,and coming from a blue collar union family, my dad always made sure whatever we bought was made in the USA.Some of my friends will ask me Hank what are you going to do with all these things,Ive even had people say what is that thing. I tell them there windows back in time when things were built to last and a testament to the companys and the men and women who built them.Sometimes I go to my garage and just look at them and marvel at the quality and craftmanship.When I go to tractor supply for something, and see the new cub cadets and others I smile to myself knowingly.

Knowing that things will never be built like they used to be, to last longer and work better.

I know what you mean. I always use something old and ugly, but i never seem to break down if i service it when i am supposed to.Although i seem to have quite a few people bring their shiney new thin metal expensive big box store lawnmower or snowblower garden tractor etc around because something is wrong with it. that's when i get a big smile on my face when they try to make light of my DEPENDABLE  " JUNK "

But who do they ask for help when their shiny plastic lawnmower blows up?  What do they want to borrow?
