Last week was a sad one for me as my mother passed away, she would have been 89 the 1st of May. One memory I will always have is the last time She was at our place She wanted to look at my tractors, VAC, S, DC, 500 and some other brands. She had a twinkle in her eye when She said, "you always gave Dad a bad time because He ran them Case tractors, and you wanted John Deere. I guess Dad knew what he was doing." Well, I guess Dad did know what He was doing. We had Case tractors from the DC through the 30 series and then the 70 series. Now that both of my parents our gone I guess I will stay with their wishes and stay away from them John Deeres.

Yes they would (eat venison) if they came upon it. I've had them drop down on a pile of rabbit guts not 100 yds from my house (I had put the guts out after a good day's rabbit hunting, thinking that the vultures would have a good time). Marsh hawk stopped by for a chew too.

Don't think there's a tractor named after rabbit guts, but who knows.

The passing of a parent is hard on everyone, just some of us don't know how we feel about until later. Even a bad parent's passing is a loss, much more so a good parent.

 My Father in reply to Gary from Iowa, 04-17-2006 09:30:17  
My sympathies to you for your loss...

I'm kind of in the same boat with you. My father passed away on April 9. He started collecting Case tractors back in the '70s, when he worked for the local Case dealership as their serviceman. I remember the days when I'd ride with him in the parades on the Model "C" he restored while working there. As I grew up, we spent a lot of time bending wrenches over whatever the latest project was. I miss him deeply, and this summer will have a lot more meaning when I'm out at the shows with one of the tractors we restored together.

Keep your chin up, Gary...

Sorry for your loss Most of us know what it is to loose a parant or two. You just seem to be all alone for sometime then all of a sudden you realize that they have just passed the banner on to you to wave.

We call them Ugly Green Things out here in Oregon. giggle

That's not green paint on those tractors... that's fungus... A little bleach will clear it up.

I've always wondered if Eagles would eat venison... :)

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
