That's awesome and I am glad you all had a good time. Daphne is too cute. I like that shirt you are wearing too Daniel :D

I think the Ford found a good home as well. :thumbs:


Yep, changed into the GTT shirt just before they arrived!:thumbs:

He got a free 4 drawer file cabinet too.


FREE file cabinet with the purchase of any tractor! Yesterday only at OLCOWHAND's

It was a good trip. We had a good time. It was great to see Daniel again and to get to drool over his tractors. We were there for 2 hours and I could have eaily spent another 4 just looking over all the details of his tractors and visiting with him.

Here is a shot as we got on our way home.

forgot to mention that as part of the deal for the tractor, I brought Daniel some pulled pork that I smoked saturday night. So we will be waiting on his review of my cooking skills.

Internet & TV has been out since 10pm last night....just back online. Just finished having some pulled pork, and the review.........VERY good! Tender as all get out & a nice smoke flavor!:worshippy2:
We had a nice visit, and yes, time was against spending more time looking/talking. Thanks for the visit Chuck, and come by anytime you're close by. We always have baby calves for the kids.

Got it unloaded last night. And am even more happy with my purchase. It runs so good. I had a blast driving around on it.

here are a few more pictures:

Yep, I figured it was a replacement engine. Just runs too darned good & free of smoke. There was NO wear in the cylinder at all! BTW Chuck...how bad were the storms when they rolled past you? Heading this way.

Heavy Rain and hard wind. I heard reports of 60mph wind.

Wish it would have rained a little more though.

Hey Dan, I think you rusted those spots on the rear fenders just to make them look like cow spots LOL! But seriously, you got a great deal Chuck...and a free filing cabinet to boot! Your daughter is adorable! I'm glad that all had a good time.
