    Santa came today!

    In addition to an awesome day on the job today (Sunday), Santa came by the church and left this in the back of my car.

    Darren will remember that green machine in the back of my truck last spring.

    This spring it gets a few accessories. Like a front end loader and a backhoe! Stay tuned.

    Yes, I know Santa's gift is light duty, but my tractor guy said tack it up and then bring it by for some heavy duty welding.

    Way to go Carol. Just out of interest do you need a plow where you at or plan on the new home?
    cheers

    The plow I guess can be used to move the mud slides.

    No plow! The lot is barely big enough for a house! Need the tractor to BUILD the house. Then it becomes a toting tool to help keep things tidy. No mud slides either (I hope!). Not enough slope, but I do need to put some short retaining walls/planter beds in to help level things out. I also plan an earth tube system, so lots of digging there. And a water collection system. More digging.

    You might know the big guy would bring you something to "Work" with.
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.
