What have you traded for lately?
This past calendar year I have been "talking with" a guy that wanted my old Oliver (the one I took the loader off of last year due to a crack in its hydraulic pump). Yep, told him the whole story, it had sat for over a year, put jumper cables on it, filed the contact on the rotor and she fired right up. He was impressed.
Well he got a little more anxious about wanting the Oliver AND my '48 Ford farm truck (has a hydraulic dump, flat head V8 and overdrive trans).
Needless to say, even up, my two items for his. 6 cylinder Perkins diesel. Doesn't articulate, both axles are steerable. Approximately a 1969 model, 1470 Case 4 wheel drive. Heat and air, windsheild wipers, pretty deluxe model in that it has a pto, 4 hydraulic remotes and 3 pt. hitch! Yep, traded. What am I going to do with it? Thinking about how funny it will look if I get my young team mowing next summer and mow two strips around the fence then pull out the case with a batwing mower to finish mowing the pasture! Wonder what people would think!
Okay, here is one of my recent trades, what have you traded for lately?
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
