Yes,I do think that,but I have been known to be wrong at times.


Did Simplicity have a plant in Germany? It says "It was produced in Germany - from where came the giant Hanomag line of equipment acquired by Massey".

I do agree though, it looks a lot like the Simplicity machines.

I'm not much of a Christmas person, and the wife knows it. Yesterday morning, she asked, why I kept saying "Elf" in my sleep.
I guess, I must be working on getting one.


Time to fire off a letter to Santa, with a copy to the CFO.

Well, it makes sense, that you have Elfs in Finland. You've got all the raindeer.:smile1:
Maybe you could talk Kristkindle into dropping one of those Elfs into
Northern Ontario. We need one over here.:smile1:

Welcome, MF Elf! Glad you joined this crazy place. Now we can get Will some first hand info on your tractor, might keep him calmed a bit. He's already making room for one in his shed.
