The Debate

As a child growing up I thought my paternal grandpa was IT! He would come up with remarks, as I was a tall skinny kid, 'boy it looks like you traded legs with a grasshopper and got beat out your a'. He always had a quip! When I turned 15 and was dreamin about girls and cars, he said' if it has T#ts or tires, you gonna have trouble with it. As a construction proffesional now, I marvel on how his bean rows were so stright. Almost like he had set up a string line! There was a lot of picket fence stretched along the end by the blacktop, for snow drifts, and I remember him telling me one day while riding on the M pullin the 4 row planter, 'see that grasshopper on the picket post, just keep the tractor pointed at it and we'll be okay' At a quarter mile away I thought he had Supermans vision or there was something wrong with mine. This brings me to the debate. My paternal side was all Farmall and Chevy. The maternal side was Deere and Dodge. My maternal grandpa 'Papy Choate' as I remember him was a big, but gentle and quite man. he had cancer in one eye and was constantly losing his focus to blurred vision with a watery eye. He struggled to plant in a straight row. One day at some gathering, a reunion, wedding, funeral, I really don't remember, I was 6 or 7, it started. The first comments I remember were Dodge versus Chevy and it escalated fairly quickly with civil discourse to farmall versus deere. I remember everone laughing at the two going back and forth. With neither getting the upper hand. Then grandpa Loyd said, ' Choate, why don't you plant them beans in a straight row'. Papy Choate calmly responded, 'Loyd don't you know you can get more beans in a crooked row'! I hope grandma Wilma is making cobbler. And grandma Barbara is ready to play pinocle I will see you in the hereafter. Tracy

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
