Just got back, and had a great time. Saw a lot of IH equipment, and renewed some old acquaintenances, as well as makeing some new ones. Next time I have to go a day earlier.
Unfortunately, just as I was heading to get Missy for the Parade of Power, I got a call from my daughter. My Mother in law had been taken to the hospital in serious condition.
With the help of a list member, and another cub fan I had just met, we got everything loaded and strapped down. I headed back to the motel to collect my belongings and hit the road for home. got home about 8:30 and unhitched the trailer, unloaded the truck, and started reloading for a trip south.
I left Missy and the cart strapped to the trailer, I thought that would make it handier for Bigdog. Yes it is legal to bait tractor thieves in Mo., and their disposal is left to the discretion of the trapper.
We are heading for Arkansas tomorrow (Sunday) morning, but due to age (87) and various health problems, the outlook for Joann's mother is not good. I'll be off the list for a few days, and will let you know when I get back. Joann and I as well as her family would very much appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers.
