Glad to see that BJ is doing better, and hopefully will be fully recovered soon. Too bad your so busy, but it is like that on the farm. I know what you are saying about the equipment woes, sometimes even the best built equipment has problems. I had an accident with a deer the morning of the 11th. I was headed to work at 2:45 AM and was exiting off of a metropolitan interstate onto a city street when the deer ran out in front of me. The accident damaged the front bumper cover, the hood, the grill, a fog lamp, and pushed the top radiator support bracket back into the engine. The body shop estimated the damage at $3700.00, the insurance company estimated the car at $2260.00. The body shop said they also thought that the intake manifold had been cracked because the car wouldn't restart after they got it into the shop, so it was a total loss. I am trying to work out a deal with one of my neighbors to buy a car that they have. It is older, but it has been very well taken care of and looks almost new. My brother sold one of his acreages and decided to sell his tractor and equipment. He said the equipment brought what he thought it should have, but the tractor wound up being a "no sale". The top bid was $1800.00. (It is a Massey Ferguson 135, 1963 model.) It is a good sized tractor for a small acreage, or for utility tractor to use for light work. Unfortunately everyone seems to want one with power steering and a loader, or they want a newer tractor with 4wd. Well, I've got some errands to run before I go to work this afternoon. Take care, and try to enjoy life! Kevin Hi Joel, and everyone!

The one I just got is in the Oct. diaries. Did you end up being put in there or taken out? Wow, life is rough, scary, and busy. Nice to see you guys are still pulling through. More speedy recovery to BJ. Take care! Kyle How come I never saw your diary in Farm&Ranch? The one I just got is in the Oct. diaries. Did you end up being put in there or taken out?
