$2.00 for a marriage license 48 yrs ago. You ask "why is that relevant when we're talks about tractors?" Because she doesn't quibble when the count was up to 16, and she found the Case444 and told me https://www.mytractorforum.com/21-ca...eaks-what.html
. Then Fast forward a year or so and I find a two ton lift for sale. That's it holding up the above Case. And once again she says "Get it, cause it'll make working on them easier when you don't have to bend over or lay on a creeper.
Finally, we're on the way to a local harvest fest (2016) and pass a tractor for sale along the highway about eight miles from home. "Look at that!" then "Turn around an check it out!" She said - I did. Wasn't planning to buy one, but always on the lookout. Once again she says "Get it, it's something you've always wanted.
Well it had the particulars plus phone number. Tried to call bud had to leave a message. She says "you're gonna go over there in the morning." No doubt in my mind.
That's me with the big a$$ grin with my new to me Kubota BX25.
Year 2013, hrs on the meter (I kid you not) 66.7 Condition, Kept inside. Paint wasn't even completely worn off the teeth on the backhoe or the sides of the FEL. Guy even lent me his trailer to bring it home. (Note to self - need bigger trailer) Think the price was decent,$14K
Oh yeah, she's also a super cook and great baker.
So I think that $2 was the best money I ever spent and a he!!uva deal.
