My original intent was to pack the kids into the van on Sat morning and drive to the Little Guys Show... Then a co worker had two deaths in the family... So much for the show.

Today Karen had to work, so we went up to my parents house for the day. Kaylen helped my Dad plant potatoes, Loran helped Grandma weed the Strawberries, Ryan and I did some cleanup stuff (dragged a frozen hulk of a continental engine to the scrap pile, also the remains of a LT12 Lawn Boy,both with the SS12) and some maintenance issues around the farm.

Some of the play stuff we got done today included getting a few ready for our show since we couldn't get to one ourselves.

The Sickle Mower is now in the 18/6. Logic was that the 18 has no rear lift and the sickle doesn't need one... Also, they're both more or less retired pieces that could be worked if needed.

The dozer blade and the Brinly adapter w/box blade is on the ST16. She is on driveway smoothing patrol, but can be shown this way too.

The 725 is going with the 6" plow

SS12 with the 5 blade discs, maybe boom pole.

GT5000 with Brinly planter

GT19.9 with mower and/or maybe blower

Ryan wants to take the Massey Stuff too... Have to try to help him get ready.

Also got the tins on the tiller on the AC b-112 welded, new battery in the GT19.9, Ryan mowed for two hours with it after a good deck lube job.

Evicted a woodchuck from the lower field and filled in the hole with the ST16.

So,we got lots of stuff done... Most was playtime... And we played hard. :thumbs:

Shoot Alan. Sounds like fun. Not to hijack but I got the garden plowed today and after finishing up I threw a coat of grey primer on the Cub disc plow, which still impresses me lol. But compared to my accomplishment you guys got a lot done today. By the way, I am going to have to work hard to be ready for our show, isn't it in June?
