As usual for a Saturday, we took the TT to breakfast this morning. Afterwards, we made a couple of stops including the local nursery. My wife wanted to buy some trees. We picked out the ones she wanted and as we're loading them on the truck, the lady was giving us the usual instructions for planting, watering and fertilizing. She finished up with a word of caution, "Don't go too fast on the way home. You'll burn the buds."
I assured her that wouldn't be a problem.
AAHAHAAA! That is a hoot.Dont burn the budz!
At 18 mph aint nothing going to burn but your nose from the cold wind!
Did you tell her the truth, or just thank her and go on your way? Man, I can't wait for warmer weather so I can blow some minds around town like some of the fellas posting on here picking up stuff in their TT's. I wanna grow about 5 days beard, put on my ragged overalls and a straw hat and see how many folks feel sorry fer me!
I use my 1925 C CAB for all my heavy hauling. I went to the local building supply store and loaded over 2500 lbs of blocks, cement, rebar and lumber. The store owner said I couldnt haul that kind of weight. So as I left I started out in low and shifted three times on the way out of his yard. His yard man just laughed at him.
Ray, I wonder how many old TT's were used in the back woods to haul supplies to the "still"? ...Michael Pawelek

I hear that up in Kentucky they're still (no pun intended) put'n out some agreeable corn squeeze?
