Had a rare day to play a bit, and knock out some shop chores.  I had my little helper with me most of the day...his mother was under the weather, so we got out of her hair and had a ball.  In all, he rode my lap on 7 different tractors today.  We used everything from the mower and vac on the diesel, to the grader blade, york rake, Sweepster, a couple loaders, the 60" flail and mostly just burned fuel on some joy rides!  Had a ball, soaked up some elusive October sun, and got a lot of little, nagging fleet maintanance chores out of the way.  I should have take an few more pics, but you know how it goes when things are happenin.

And Dad's little helper!

We took a drive early, to pick up a York rake at daybreak.  He's a trooper in the truck, when chasing tractor goodies.

The Shop Boss kept a close eye on me...he says I did well today!

Picked this 60" flail up for the Legacy last week.  It's a handful for the 3pt on this machine.  We'll see how it spins it another day.

We had a great day, and tucked them all in for bed...a peek over my shoulder revealed a bunch of happy campers!

Thanks all!  Yeah, he's our first little one, and he certainly changed the 'pace' around home, but I can barely remember what things were like without him.  Who did I talk with non-stop out in ths shop before I had a helper out there!?!  Man, is he fun to hang with!  We celebrate B-day #1 this weekend, and are looking forward to mini-mechanic #2 arriving this coming June :angel:

 

Lots of good times ahead :thumbs:

Looks like you really had a great day.  Your little helper did a great job supervising. :thumbs:   Congratulations on the new arrival in June.  In about 2 years you should be able to have your own pit crew. :smilewink:

I should also mention that I had a visitor yesterday as well.  A fella came over from Ontario for a dozer blade I had, and even brought along a few freebie parts for me.  Super nice gentleman, who may or may not be a member here and elsewhere.  He picked up on one of my classified ads, but I've been unable to locate him in any registries.  Always great to meet fellow collectors, and we could have chewed the fat for hours.  He was suprised to learn that he was not my first international visitor...Canada is about 3 hours from home for me, and customs can be a bit of a roadblock for haulilng tractors and parts.

Im hooked on the blue ones like you Roger! I would love to find a nice T-7 to sit beside the T-16. Dominic will have a ball as he gets old enough to operate them. He has a few in the barn with Dad's ...one of each color! (Serf 525, B-207, Homie CT-10 & Squire 6) The Squire is slated to be a father son restoration....if Dad can stand to wait that long!

At ahows I think the little machines garner more attention than the big ones! I cant wait till he can enjoy shows with me. Took him to Buckley this year and he was in awe the entire day. He loves steam whistles!
