Thats right, she suggested I sell my toy tractor collection! (What did you think I meant? lol!)
What am I going to do with her? She obviously doesn't share the collecting bug with me...

No, I'm not selling. I do have the unenviable task of getting them all packed up, along with most of the rest of the house. Yup, we're moving! Not going anywhere, but still have to pack everything. This old 14x70 is pretty much shot, so in comes a nice shiny new 16x80!

So now i'm (carefully!) packing all my toys, 100+ tractors plus 20+ implements and getting them stashed safely in the cattle trailer. That trailer is going to be full by the time we get everything piled in there!

ughh, excited and overwhelmed...all at the same time!


ps, the above was in jest, but she did suggest I sell 'em!

Chad, I got my older brothers only tractor he ever had. Its a toy Regular, with ARC on the left rear axle, and ADE on the right. It has McCormick Deering Farmall written on the frame rails. Im either gonna giove it to my boy IF he goes to farming when Im through with it, or givve it to my Nephew who is set to get dads place. But you couldnt buy it now

Thanks. Birds are doing good, them buggers can eat! I've been lurking every 3-4 days at the Easy, but I haven't been posting 'cuz I been keeping busy.

Dale Anne,
Ain't nobody playing with my toys...shame on you for suggesting it! lol! besides, we'd have to have kids to have grandkids. And we aren't in any hurry to do that. (Aren't neices and nephews enough?) :>)

8^D I figured since you went thru all the trouble of making them mobile, and I never seem to have enough toys, and your wife wants rid of them, that that would be a nice solution! 8^D

yu got it made my friend! it's paid for right? why make waves? since she isn't particularly fond of them, once you get all the toys out, she can have the old 14x70! heh heh
