Many years ago my Dad tryed one last time to farm. When he was a kid they lived on the farm and raised cattle and hogs. I think he wanted that for us kids. (my bro and me) We raised hogs, german sheperds, chickens, rabbits and he was trying to make a go of row cropping and also working in town full time. We were there for a year before he finally wore plum out. I never forgot how much fun it was to live out there where you could do almost anything in your imagination. Years later, when I grew up I bought a small hobbie farm in between two rivers to raise my kids on and play at. I bought a well used old john deere tractor model MT 48' and have since restored it to near new condition.It is used to brush cut, and grade the road, ect. About a month ago my best friend and wife came to me and asked if I had ever thought about buying a back hoe. Ofcourse I had, but didnt want to spend the money. Now we have one and I'm getting it ready to use to dig gate posts, corner posts and water lines ect. Got to push up and burn a big brush pile. Its a ford 4000 with the 723 hoe and 724 loader. Seems like it will be a real work horse. All these years later, living what was only a dream and memory from child hood is only missing one thing... I lost my Dad last year. He taught me almost everything of value that I know. He is sorely missed. Pop, if you can hear me, thanks for all of the good times! What memories we made!! Now I'm making those memories with my kids. I know that like me, they will not forget. I sure miss you Pop.
