I have been a member of this Great website for almost 3 years now, and with the end of 2013 just around the corner, I took some time to remember some of the things that have stood out to me, or things that had happened this past year. Yes, we all have our different brands of tractors that we collect, yes, we butt heads with each other from time to time, and yes, we ride each other about some of the attachment ideas or brain storms that some of the members come up with. But through it all, we manage to find a way to all join together whenever there is a time of need.

 

We prayed for Brian (Texas Deere & Horse) due to hard times when his folks lost their house. We cried when Dale (dstaggs) was taken from us with cancer. We pray for Daniel's (oldcowhand) father while recovering from surgery. We rejoiced for Scott (sacsr) as he is in the final stages of completing his Bush Hog collection. And Thanked God that Travis (trav1s) finally completed his John Deere 120 refurbishment. (just kidding). And now we are called together again, to join in prayer for Bob (Robert Webb) and his wife Kimme, as they travel a road that nobody wants to venture.

 

I guess what I'm trying to point out is this. That no matter how different we are as individuals, or how far apart we may live from one another, we always seem to be able to join together in unity as brothers and sisters, and come together with a family commitment to each other, that you just won't find anywhere else. This place is like no other, and the members here are so dedicated in looking out for each other, and finding a way to reach out and help each other, that it is really hard to grasp if you really think about it. We really have something very special here, and I am just so honored to be able to say that I am a part of it. 

 

So Thank you guys! Thank you all for taking a few minutes, hours, or even days, out of our busy life styles, to give just enough to make a difference to someone else's lives, mine included. You all are truly inspirational whether you admit or not.

Newbie to the site, but from what I've read thus far, this seems like a very caring bunch.

Hope to help out any place I can in the future.

I've only been a member a short time and can tell their is a lot of people that I'd like to meet. I have no problems asking stupid questions "and often do" and never have been made to feel the fool. Many time's have I had a great laugh, and ever some somber moments. I also have noticed that their isn't any know it all's on here, people like that have shut down and will cease to learn anything new. This by far is the best site to learn,laugh,and get to know people with out actually meeting them and I am proud to be a member  Thank to everyone for making this such a great site. :thank_you:

I agree, special little recipe we have here. Glad to be a part of the community and associate with the likes of you all. (Even tho my wife shakes her head at me from time to time)

I may be George's "fault" that this website exists, but it's the members that make it what it is.
Case and point is the OP of this thread. Currently he has 1579 posts. While that doesn't make it in the top ten for posters, what is really impressive is he has almost a thousand more "thanks" than posts. (2456)

Very well said, Troy.  This is a great site with a bunch of great folks that care.  Being a part of something good is what life should be about , I think.  Our main topic is garden tractors, but our focus is on the people who own them.
