Hello, 45 yrs old, married, 4 kids and a John Deere that has been giving me

a bit of grief, Also got a 93 Craftsman, well built and tough. Getting a Bolens

HT23 shortly, nice machine, big unit. Work for myself as an electrical

contractor, small stuff, no headaches.

I am also a musician, guitarist and singer, totally on back burner, wife is

NOT into it at all. So for now, no playing out. Don't blame her,

alcohol, drunk chicks and married musicians don't mix well . From

Connecticut, and yes, it is very expensive to live here...hahaha

Welcome to MTF David :fing32:

Looks like we have two things in common .. I'm also an electrical contractor ..and I have two HT-23's

Where abouts in CT are you ? I actually have to look at a job in Bridgeport in a few weeks.

Haven't done work up in CT in a LONG time .. last job was in New Haven 7 - 8 years ago.

Thanks for the welcome fellas. Look foward to the site.
I live in East Haven, and don't do much work if any in Bridgeport. I stay within 50 miles or so, no out of state work. Miilford-Meriden-Madison, that is my triangle. Work is decent at best, nothing like it was last year. Sole proprietor with only a few part timers. I still pay dues to IBEW as well.

I am psyched about the Bolens, but for now I have a problem with a 155c John Deere, where should I post my thread fellas?

Be good...

You can ask over in the JD forum. I'm sure there is someone there that can help you out.
