The Autism horse is for the cause that has become near and dear to me since being diagnosed on the spectrum myself.  There are so few support services for adults on the higher functioning side of the spectrum.  Everything is mostly geared towards kids, which is also very important.  But the disorder does not just vanish when you turn 18, or for the adults missed as kids and diagnosed later in life that need supports to live on their own.  My tractor also serves as a path to get me out of the house and talking to real people instead of staying home on the computer.  And of coarse, I really enjoy using it to mow yards!   Having it bring back memories for you, makes me smile.    Mike

]Weather finally moderated where I could dig the Autism horse out of the garage for some nice pictures.   To late to edit my original post, but here they are none the less.    Mike the Aspie

 Dear Mike, I had helped a friend with many Cancer For A Cause events. She would host many karaoke events where ever she could in the winter and hold karaoke car shows (car shows with a karaoke contest after dark.) in the summer. Volunteering and supporting to know that it helps others is rewarding within itself. She would give out prize money and never once did anyone not donate it back. When you stand back and look at all the the people who would come to the events, it is a powerful moment to realize that every one person present is one more to help. I lost my mother to cancer and smaller support events do help those who need. I thank you for your strong personal drive to make it aware to others, If I could help in any way, let me know.

Only stuff I want right now are some more decals for it, small Autism Awarness ribbons for each side of the grill uprights on each side.  A large decal to put on the hood between the hood latch and the lettering in the main decal, then the rest are attachments.  I want to get hub caps with the embossed lettering, and the mid and rear cultivators for it.  Lack of $$ is the only hold up right now.  Always open to any help, and credit is always given to those who help me on projects.    Mike

One final picture to add to my entry, if a mod would please add it to my original post please.  One of my custom decals finally showed up in todays mail, but the weather totally stinks for any outdoor pics again.  Raining like crazy most of today.    Mike the Aspie

All the nominations should be missing from this post. I'm working on the voting thread. I added the pic for him.
