If you were wondering why i have not posted much the past week and a half here's the reason why,
Spent the past couple weeks at our county fair setting up then hauling stuff home, since its fairly close to me I haul all the restored stuff I have and really try and put on a unique and different display of Bolens each year Finally got got everything hauled home and now they are in need of a good washing! Those old oil pull tractors we ran really blew some soot all over everything
Was a pretty good fair and lots of people stopped by to see the antique equipment people brought, I even had the previous owner of my ridemaster come to see the machine finished, it was his wife's fathers and I started it up for them and she took pics and a video of it running, it made both our days.
It seems the parents and their kids get more bold every year though as I just about blew a gasket when a mother and one of her kids decided to go into my roped off area and sit on my tractors! The kid knocked my freshly restored saw on the ground and scratched it pretty good , I was pissed! mother thought nothing of it of course and didnt apologize at all when I came over asking if they seen the cones around the display.
Parenting skills are lacking for many it seems but thats a whole other topic, you can definitely tell which kids are brought up right though as the ones who were came to the tent and asked first if they could sit on any.
For those looking for the complete set of pics other than the Bolens you can find them here: http://gardentractor...actor-pictures/
