Merry Christmas all. Last night i am sitting around unwinding from a busy day cleaning up the house, have the wifes side coming over today, oh goodie!!!!
well she comments that she is surprised that I didnt want anything for christmas. I tell her all i want is another tractor. now i listen and get the look everytime i talk or bringing home another tractor, so i just bring them home when shes not around and hide them, ha ha ha, (or should that be ho ho ho at this time of the year).
so i tell her all i want is a tractor and she says ok, where is it, how much, at this point im dumb founded because i dont have one in mind right now, so i think she's messing with my mind but you can be sure i will be calling her bluff in the next day or so. now i just have to find an rj or surburban within a few hundred miles, road trip!!!!!!!

Merry Christmas. Give her some credit for being smart enough to realize that being a tractorholic isn't bad. By comparison to what TV shows and some of her friends husbands are probably doing, we are angels. We generally are home alot more and compared to what greens fees cost we are a lot cheaper than golf, car racing, or a dozen other hobbies.

If I were you, I'd reward her with her own fixed up tractor. Pick one that is simple to operate, easy on and off, and has a box attached for carrying things. My wife loves hers. The box is just a milk crate on two angle irons. My wife has mobility problems so it has also allowed her more access to our lower yard.

If you have a tractor with a plow, let her try plowing 4" when it isn't too cold. Get her involved and you will have more freedom. Good Luck, Rick

ha ha ha !!!  miracle is right, as for getting her her own tractor she has one, a mint bolens gt 2000 hydro 20hp kohler mag, deck and blower, i dont think its moved in 2 yrs, its the only bolens in the herd and i'd get rid of it if it were mine and get another horse, but the moment i touch it she'll notice it gone, sort of like selling your kids toys at a garage sale, they never played with them until your getting rid of them, go figure

Were you planning on taking the car that's completely iced over and inaccessible, or something else and sliding off the driveway into the skidsteer shaped indent in the snowbank?

They weren't playing with them so as to save them! 40+ years ago my mother got rid of all my stuff after I left for the Army. They were well cared for and carefully boxed up. I still am pissed about it. My son did not get to enjoy them. Don't do it to your kids and grandkids. Good Luck, Rick
