Well, i guess i hesitated long enough, I'll go ahead and post. This is a condensed version, as i have a problem of dragging stuff out with too much detail and such.

I'm from a little fly speck town on the Tennessee river in western TN. I'm a 1980 model, I'm younger than most but older than the rest. I attended college in Champaign,IL and received a A.S degree, then got my butt back to TN and landed a fair job. I am employed in the maintenance department for a local factory. My title now-a-days is "Industrial Maintenance Technician/Lead person", which basically means, i fix machines and make sure the other guys do too.

I enjoy welding and machining, I've built several implements, attachments, and other stuff.

I own a 1950 cub, it belonged to my grandfather, then my dad, and now me. I have a large assortment of implements. I use it mainly for the garden since i purchased a larger diesel tractor, but it still gets used for odd jobs quite a bit. And i think it's more fun to operate.

I married my wife Stephanie in Jan. of 02. She tries to keep me in straight, but i still color out of the lines occasionally. I keep mules and horses, and have started to get into nervous/fainting goats. I enjoy the company of a good dog, but unfortunately I have the company of 3 in the house and 2 in the yard. But they all love me, even tho they are my wifes. And i think thats about it.

Seriously Russel, you will enjoy this board. Everyone is wonderful, each and every one. They all have a special place with me.

Thanks for my morning chuckle, Russell.

Welcome again,
Rick
