(Who couldn't love that face! She's with me all the time.)

What do you do to earn a living?

Foreign Missionary. Wonder if I'm the only one here? Unusual work, but it's like everything else I've ever done for a living - work! Been doing it over 35 years now. Retirement is a'coming... Watch out dirt - I'm gonna be rearranging ye!

How old are you?

65

Military service?

Vietnam, '67-'71

How did you come to join MTF?

Searching to find out how to connect my rear finishing mower!

What are your favorite forums and why?

Well, MTF! It is indeed the Friendliest and Most Respectful forum I've been on! Great people here! Also, truck forums.

What do you like most about MTF?

Respectful people.

Please list your tractors and/or equipment:

JD 2210, Ariens Zero Turn, Ariens OLD rididng mower, Troy Bilt self propelled, OLD Homelite chain saw, OLD Craftsman chain saw, OLD Echo weed eater - everything's like me - OLD.

What is your favorite tractor or piece of equipment and why?

Me JD 2210. That thing just does what I need it to do. Very versatile!

Is there a tractor or piece of equipment you'd love to own someday?

Front end loader!! Wow, man could me old back use that! Some day, some day.

Tell us some of the tasks you use your tractors and/or equipment for?

Grading drive, about 500'. Plowing garden, cutting grass, pulling home made trailer for leaf removal, log, brush removal, just pulling and pushing stuff around with rear blade.

Could you describe your property for us?

4.5 acres of WOODS! If I ever buy land again, I want pasture! Then, I can plant trees I want, where I want them! I've learned, hey, trees, I love them, but you can't do anything with them but cut them down!

Is there something you'd love to build or restore someday? Pole barn (a man can never have enough roofs to put his junque under), resore a very old tractor. Hey, doesn't hurt to dream!

Most memorable tractor moment?

Bush hogging one of my old man mentor's pasture when I was a teenager using his Farmall hand cranked tractor! Back in the '60s.

Earliest tractor memories? See above. I loved doing his bush hog work! I'd about pay somebody to let me do that again!

Do you have any other hobbies or interests that you'd like to share with us?

Hunting, fishing, camping, and my all time favorite - just piddlin'.

What do the other people in your life think of your "tractor" hobby?

Heheehee, they's envious! Except the ones who have more tractors than me!


Congratulations, MacLawn! Some of the rewards you will be enjoying:

Congratulations Jim!

Always enjoy your posts :D

"Just piddlin" covers A LOT of other hobbies... I engage in piddlin a good amount and always seem to get in trouble with Mrs. Beef in the process :ROF

Thanks a lot boys!! I don't like being in spotlight, but reckon in me life I've been kinda thrust there a few times. But, here, I'm among friends! Like minded folks who just seem to squeeze life! Hehehehee, Well boys, let's keep'er between the ditches!

Oh, I'm spending a bit of time finally reading again some of the MOM threads (wonder why??), and I probably won't get to them all, but I still say a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to all my fellow MyTractor Forum members!! The best!
