John *.?-!.* cub owner

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."

Far as I concerned you 1948 babies aren't even dry behind the ears yet much less geezers. That is reserved for us 1932 babies.

1948 was a good year to be born. I will not enter geezerdom until I am driving through Florida with my left turn signal on...or through a DMV.
Best,
Mike

Wow, I didn't think anything could be as old as my snow plow Cub :shock: :D

It's been my pleasure to know you John. When it comes to Cubs, you haven't been setting at your desk making paper airplanes :D , you've been studying and have all the correct answers.

Your friend,
Rick
