    3 of a kind...

    I'm building a new addition on my dad's barn. Between the two of us we have 15 tractors (mostly his) so I needed to get these three out of the barn to begin work. Had them all lined up and snapped this picture...Can ya tell we need rain BAD



    Two days work and I am ready to get the roof sheething on.



    And the crew that helped me set the trusses,

    Steve Ash Jr, Tom Taylor, Chris Ash, and my dad Clare....I think dad is pretty happy with the progress.

    Learn something new everyday. Looking a the first tractor on the left, didn't know they offered them with bird houses on the hood.

    Ducking, dodging and running
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    One could look at that 2 ways....

    Deere has gone to the birds....

    ....or Deere in their infinite wisdom has come up with many options to keep their customers happy...

    Okay, first choice might be the better option...

    It is a Minneapolis Moline "R". There are 4 Molines in the barn. Here is a better picture of the "R"
