Most of you have known me for quite a while, but I thought I would put this for the benefit of the newbies. According to the kids, I am a geezer, since I was born in 1948. I was raised on a farm in the Mo. hills, and drove Farmall H tractors from the time I was able to slide off the seat and hit the brakes, till I left the farm when i got married. Thanks to the work and generosity of some of the members of this forum, Dad's H that he bought used in 1947 has returned to me, in beautiful condition.
I bought my first cub a little over 20 years ago when I needed something sturdier than a riding lawnmower for the ground where I lived. I still own it, plus a second one with several implements. I still live in the Mo. hills, on a small piece of ground that came off our family farm. I am no longer able to work for a living, or to do more than minor maintenance on my tractors, but I really enjoy this forum and the cub get togethers, as well as about any antique tractor gathering. I am a prime example of the saying, "If you can't do it, talk about it."
