Hey everyone! I have some news about a new cub collector! At 9:45 am on Dec. 30, we had an 8lb 7oz boy! We named him James Tanner West (J.T.). Ann was in labor for about 15 hours, so as soon as we get rested up, I can start teaching him about tractors! Hope everyone had a happy new year. Brannon

I gave my oldest son a baby rattler shaped like a Cresent Wrench when he was less than a week old. So why is he not a mechanic now. I don't think he could put his spare tire on. But he makes enough to have it done.

Hey Brannon,


We, too, have a new cubbie in our family; Landon Wayne, born November 5. As I sit here typing this, he sits in his carrier fast asleep dreaming of Farmall cubs. :roll:

Congrats on the the arrival of your new son to you and the wife. Hope all is doing well.

Almost made it to being a 2005 baby, but at least you will be able to claim him on your 2004 taxes :lol:

Again congratulations,

Hey Brannon...CONGRATULATIONS to you and your wife! The arrival of J.T. insures you both that 2005 (and all the years after) will be filled with joy and wonderment!

If you're like've probably all ready got your eye on a pedal tractor for J.T. (I bought a 1978 John Deere pedal tractor for my son Chris, shortly after he was born...I had a John Deere 112 at that time).

I still have Chris' pedal tractor downstairs in our lower level...waiting for his "son" when he's ready!

They grow up so soon and too fast so be sure to take PLENTY OF PICTURES!

Brannon: Congratulations to you and Ann on the arrival of the new member of your family. Is he named after grandparents? I am glad to hear that he has arrived and that mother, baby and father are doing fine. Dan
