It is hard to buy a small tractor...

It is hard to buy a small tractor now days...within a small budget.

First off you are wondering why does he need a tractor.

The first is I plow snow with it.

I also pull out the occasional traveler that had a bad time navigating our slippery roads.

I cut fire wood.

I can prepare my garden with it.

I grade and level off my non-paved driveway.

I haul things in the bucket.

I lift heavy items.

and so on.

 

I don't use it every day but it comes in very handy.

 

So there are a lot of tractors out there.

Yes, but I don't need to spend $20,000 for one that is smaller than mine.

I can find them on my price range but they are very large and not in as big of a need.

It used to be that every small town had 1 or 2 farm stores, now there is one in every 4-5 towns

and the inventory is limited in the small tractors I want.

 

Tonight, I looked at 6,000+ listings on craigs list and found nothing.

But, I know one day one will show up, and I will be there right away with my cash!

It was a great day. Vikings won 24 to 7 over the Rams. But, that is not the best part. I got 3 very well known Vikings to sign my football today. I had free tickets (I won't pay the high prices) so I went to the game. It did not take me long to… more

It was a very sad day. I had a funeral for a family friend. It was unexpected. Talking with the husband he told me that it all hurts. But if he could do just one more thing it would be to tell his wife that he loved her. Death is very seldom on… more
Thanksgiving is coming ( Humor )

Well, it is almost turkey time. And like all seasons there is humor to see. I believe we need to start with the turkey itself. WE need to get the bird ready for the pan. My dad always got a live one and butchered it and had it ready for mom to… more

Yes, I do long for the days of old. Things were slower. Things were much simpler. My life was my life and not the worlds. I didn't have to worry about some nut attacking my family. I know that some things today are much better. But, I will stay… more
Sometimes silence is suspicious.

We have all seen this. Someone talking fast like they are trying to hide something. Or they are trying to divert the blame. Sometimes it is just the opposite. It is many times best to stay quiet and just listen. It also depends on who you are. Are… more
