JD I never took what you were posting as bragging. But more as having something big happening in your life and needing/wanting to share, like you would to a good friend.
In 2010 just before Memorial Day I was burnt in a barn fire, spent 10 days in Ann Arbor hospital burn unit, and the rest of the year recovering. With no other income and my stay at home wife taking care of me, I would not have made it financially. But I have a BTO in the neighborhood who came over and planned out my fields with me and planted them. He a few months later harvested my wheat and took it in. By fall I was able to do my own harvesting.
Without people like him and you we would be much worse off. Keep on, keeping on and like the updates.
