New toy coming. . . .

Soon enough. Well, it won't be a Ford and that blasted orange color should infiltrate me once again. Years ago, when mom moved to heaven, I inherited a Kubota B7500 685 Lb FEL and backhoe. I stretched it a bit further than that at times. The new toy might be a Kubota LX2610 with a 1100 Lb FEL, Backhoe, Grapple, Pallet Forks and eventually a front snow blade. The yards are soaking wet currently from the last snow melt and nothing is going on out there. I recently picked up a 48/50 8N with the head removed and I suspect I will part it after I pull the tires off. The wife is telling me that I should not be leaving her a giant mess to clean up and while she is the odds on favorite to move first, the cancer I went through 3 years back has diminished those odds. Guess this new toy, while being financed for 84 months, might see me losing the bet as to who goes first. Soon the question is going to arise as to my desires for the rest of my machines. Hmm. . . .

You dont have an expiration date tattooed on your butt. Only God knows when your time is up.
Enjoy that Bota. I bought an MX 5200 a year ago. It has 160 hrs on it now!

Can never have too many toys. Congrats. I recently convinced the better half to build a new garage/shop. It is always a good day when you wake up and you are still able to get out of bed!

Bruce, don't give up. My family history, including me, was blessed with the medical sciences that we have, sometimes totally experimental as a last resort.
My mother had a aortal restriction at age 42, in 1956. Thoracic surgery was experimental at the University of Michigan. They entered through her side by removing 2 ribs, removed the blockage by cutting out about 2" of the aorta and stitching the two ends back together. They gave her a very short time to live, 7 to 10 days. My baby sister was 3. She died in 2001 at age 85.
My wife was diagnosed with tumors the size of softballs on her ovaries in 1993. Radical surgery saved her. I did not like her physical therapy. She can still get her foot as high as my butt.
I was diagnosed in 2013 with lymphoma. I am scheduled for a CT scan in August and to see my Oncologist in September.
Also, a good friend had basically a death sentence with cancer. His wife researched, pushed, cajoled, and yanked on doctors across the country for help. A procedure was found requiring them to travel out of state. That was 20 odd years ago. He is now 75 and doing well. Later, she then went through a double mastectomy and is doing very well at 70.
I believe!
