    Mini International Tractor spotted

    I have another piece to put in the top of the grill around the lights, a mini '66 light bracket. No rear work lights yet. I have not found anything that I like yet. None of the lights are hooked up yet either - all in time I guess. I figure I will stumble upon the perfect rear lighting someday.

    Yes much better pics than a year ago, you can see 109 and a 149 in this pic. A carport/lean to for the back side of the shed has been discussed. Hail damaged the tarp shed.

    Brinly plow

    Osceola Plow Day was fun! Well they all are or were fun, I am sure I have made my fair share of crooked furrows. I think Osceola was were I planted 4 front suitcase weights, plowed them under and never found them. I think I had 6 on the front, I saw the 5th fall off, and only found 1 of these 5.

    Brinly plow

    Plow depth is approx half the width of the plow. 10" plow approx 5 inches deep. Back in the day on the farm we plowed with 4-16", in some area we did plow 8" deep others maybe deeper, on rocky knolls we maybe scratched the surface.

    Think we have all been there doing something like this - just part of the fun I guess. Every time I change a motor or mess with the coil/condenser I question myself if I have it hooked up correctly.
