At 4:10 this morning I reached another station in the road of life, a baby girl born to my second daughter Jodi, the first grandchild , Gretchen Mary.I know many of you through this forum and have e-mailed many of you and I wanted to share this moment. From your Farmall friend Mike in Exeter Ontario.( I'll be needing a Farmall pedal tractor...does anyone know where I can get one?)

Congratulations! Ain't it fun? We have 3 grands. Our oldest son has 2 boys, 7 and 6. Our youngest son has a girl, 3. The boys like to ride, anything, anytime. Andrea is still scared of tractors except when grandma asks her to count them. Last week she counted to 20 (I WISH). I'm safe, for now.
I don't have a pedal tractor but I do have a wood rocking horse and a wood chair that were mine when I was 2 or 3. They are center pieces in our living room.

Hi Michael, Congratulations to you and Jodi.
Enjoy your grandchild every chance that you get, cause they seem to grow up very quickley. Spoil her rotten, and don't forget to teach her to drive Grand PA's tractors, ya need somebody to keep them going.

Sorry I don't have a pedal tractor, but I got a "C" that I took away from my nephew for making some post here using my handel a while back.

If he gets his act together I might give it back to him, if not maybe to his sister.

I wish little "Gretchen Mary" all the best that life has to offer.

"Little Bubba"

Mike, Congratulations. I can,t relate to being a grandfather. I'm old enough,(57), My kids are old enough,(30 and 28) but both real normal but no liveins or plans in that area. They both like my tractors and that's a start. Spoil them rotten.

Congradulations!!!!!!!! I have 2 grandsons so I know how you are feeling now. One is 18 months & the other is 5 months. Both like to wear bibs & boots & go out to look at the tractors. I already have 2 pedal tractors waiting, a "98" farm progress show M & a green A (I know, wrong color). Both came from Bossen Impliment Inc. Great company to deal with.

Michael, Congratulations! Just learn to spoil him rotten and send him home to his parents. Sprinkle in some tractor noises from time to time and get him a pair of bib overalls with an IH patch on the bib pocket.

Have 7 ourselves, with the 8th coming at Christmas time. 5 boys, 3 girls. Enjoy every moment you can with them. I never knew either of my Grandpas. One died of Cancer at 45, the other was killed in a haying accident. Feel I really missed out.//FB

Congratulations! I became a grandpa when I was 39, and I now have one grandson and one granddaughter. I am sure she will bring you much joy and you will impart much wisdom to her.

Helpful hint. Her parents probably won't go out of their way to teach her to make tractor sounds. That's Grandpa's job. And it's never to early to start with the old "Pull my finger" routine. ;o)

Being a grandfather is even more fun that being a father! I've got 4, from 3 months to 4.5 years. Don't miss a chance to form 3-way bonds between you, a grandchild, and a Farmall!

Congratulations to both you and your daughter and family. Being a grandparent is a real privilege and I have 4 grandchildren with the fifth one due in November. The two oldest like to ride with Grandpa on his "red tractor".

I have a 706 pedal tractor they enjoy. I bought it at a flea market, then rebuilt what needed it and repainted it. Looks like a million bucks now and most of all, the kids think all tractors should be red!

Congratulations! My youngest son & his wife blessed us with our first grandchild (a boy) on the third of this month. Can't wait till he's old enough for his first tractor ride.

Congratulations, Mike, and welcome to this very special club: whatever good energies and efforts we invest in these children is not wasted! My grandson is almost two,... and my daughter's got another one due in November. I've got my son's pedal tractor in the loft of the barn (gift from his grandmother -- who handled the parts counter for the local IH dealer years ago) now for his nephews to play with when they come to visit grandad Ted in Missouri. Life is good. RedTed/MO.

Congratulations! It's the greatest, isn't it?

Got nine of 'em myself, from 18 months to 16. Three boys, 18 months, 3-1/2 and 10. Wind 'em up and send 'em home is my motto!

Congrats! I am currently looking for two Farmall pedal tractors. I think I will get my nephew a Super M and an F-Series model for my grandson (my wife is 11 years older than me so I am a 29 year old grandpa, wild). When my grandson comes over, he points at my tractors and starts going 'pop pop!'. -BTD

Hi. I was blessed with grandparents that live to there ninteys.My grandfather baled hay for us at the age of ninty one years old. We all learned what life was all about, and they both keep my dad in check. Pretty cool I think, but back to yours. Any grandfather that is goning to buy a pedal tractor for a grand child is great. I hope they can enjoy you like we did our. Congragulation and God bless you and your family

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Implements and Their Use - by Curtis Von Fange. Dad was raised during the depression years of the thirties. As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'. My dad dreamed that some day he would have his own tractor with every implement he could get. When he reached his early sixties ... [Read Article]
