I have told my dad I would like the tractor since we did have so many good times together with it. His answer is just it costs too much to pull anymore you don't need that expense. Told him not the pulling so much as having the tractor. He says you really have no use for it you have your own tractor, told him I could still use it to plow my driveway and I could make a few close pulls every year till work picked up. He is just not the sentimental type at all. Get a feeling he thinks that way of thinking is stupid. My parents are fairly well off, not rich but comfortable, sold the farm about 15 years ago. I think it all comes down to the way he was raised, had a hard early life, his father died before I was born, and dad has never said nothing much about him but nothing good. Dad has done the best he could for his family but nobody gave him nothing, we are going to work for what we want and being sentimental has no place in life. Seems to be tougher in that way of thinking the older he gets. I know he loves his kids, still sharp in his thinking but no sentimental feelings about things. Don't remember or let on he remembers telling me the tractor would be mine someday. Maybe doesn't want any of the other kids mad, who knows. Just the tough old farmer type and guess I have to accept the way he is, or could be whatever is wrong with him medically has him in a bad mood most of the time, he won't say much for sure. He has a will but won't tell anybody whats in it, and mom won't say, they private like that. Will have to have a chat about it again, hopefully on a day he is in a good mood. Thanks for the advice and I will take all I can. Well time to head to work, have an afternoon shift today, hope the economy soon picks up.
