thinking of name change

Post by Richard G » Sat Jun 15, 2019 12:54 am

as in all spring time on the farm, time is the one thing -u-cant make more of , and this spring has been a bit on the wet side here in Vermont, there will be no knee high corn by the forth of July. some fields are still mud holes, talked to a logger yesterday he has orders for next years heating season, he has a huge 4x4 tractor that's stuck and he has no idea how he is going to get it out, any way back to what i'm up to,in between mowing washing and rinsing the hay getting my one thousand blu berry bush's ready for the season that's going to be two to three weeks late because of the late spring, the bumble bee's were late in getting started too, i put out heaps of mulch hay in the fall for them to winter, GOD BLESS THEM!! they don't know they cant fly but i love to watch them work . so hope when the sun finds it way here things will catch up. in the mean time my 21 Ford TRAGURTHA, sets in the corner glaring at me when i head to the fridge for cool one, i did rebuild the carbahooter with LANG'S help, may have stop'd one more oil leak,going back to #30 ND,on advice of my good buddy that's had all most as many t's as HENRY,according to him,and never a burn out be cause of oil, he told me the deturgant is not good for the cloth bands, last fall when we took a ride he drove, an said he had to push too hard on the low pedal to get under way, i thought the same too but did know how much pressure it should take, when i drove his 17 tourer it took very little to get under way, so when the mud drys a little hopefully i will see a change ,he did tell me it will take a oil change or two for the grip to get to normal. well when i started this ramble i was going to change my Fords name to patience , because it has been . but now i forgot why . life begins at 80. any one remember the 1938 storm to hit new England? that's the day my FORD was crushed in its shed, September 22 1938, it was already 17 years old when i was born. wiped out our sugar bush but for three trees. i was born that day, mom said i blew in on the wind.

I'm a youngster and didn't come along until 1941, but great to hear your ramblings there in Vermont.
We visited your fine state a number of times back when even looked at a place to buy in a small
town whose name I have long forgotten.
Here in S/W Missouri it has been wet too with a great deal of flooding. The row of green beans
got washed out twice. The third row is now just peaking above the ground but more rain and
storms are promised to come. My 27 TT project sits waiting for a great deal of work.
There are dark clouds off to the west that promises more rain.
Hope things dry out up there and here too soon.

Good to see you're writing again GREG! :)
Ya, we've had a wet and late spring here too again.
When it turns, it'll be 90 and humid in the shade and this Minnesotan will be cryin' and suffering. :lol:
Sadly, right here I'm down to just a couple of Bumbles that gotta do the work. Mulch hay piles you say. :)
Since I lost my mind mind, I feel more liberated
