Hi all,
It's been a long time since I've been around here but i thought I would drop in to say hi and let everyone know I'm still alive!
Between the little one (who isn't so little anymore!) and my new position at work I have very little time for myself! What time I do have has been spent mostly on my other hobby of old iron. I'm restoring a 1928 Stover hit and miss flywheel engine and just recently bought a 1952 John Deere 60 tractor that should keep me in projects for a while. Yolanda and Jason are doing good and we are all busy with the holidays. Well, I'll keep this short but I promise to check in more often!

Hi Steve,

Glad to hear from you also. Is that hit and miss engine the same one that bit you awhile back?

Steve, please, post pictures of the restoration work. There was one of those hit and miss engines that ran the spray rig on my grandfather's apple orchard in Ohio when I was a kid. I learned a lot of four-letter words when they sprayed -- seems the engine had a lot more miss than hit!

Steve!

Great to hear from you (& the family!) Glad things seem to be going good for you folks! We've missed a lot of the old regulars but everyone seems super busy lately.

Have a great holiday!

Hi all,
It's good to be back if only occassionally. I see alot of new names on here which is a good thing!

Tommy, no the engine I'm restoring right now isn't THAT one. This is another one, I haven't done anything to the finger biter yet!

Hey Mikey, yes we'll be at the BTS. Hope you guys are ready for Jason, he's pretty fast now!

Gary, we'll definitely be at the Ranch unless something comes up. Sure hope you guys can make it this next year, it's really getting to be quite an event!

Steve

Hey!!
I think I remember you. Didn’t you work on the Fantasy Corner at fair plex.
I knew a guy named Steve that helped out there. If that is you then I remember you.
It’s great to hear from you.
I will be looking for you and the family at the BTS.
Give “y” and Jason a big hug for me.
