Here's a shot of the rear (no not my rear)...The parade kicked off when it was dark. My little 6 volt front and rear lights did a great job of helping to light my way (along with the street lights). If you recognize the Merry Christmas flag...it's a $3.00 Wal-Mart gift bag that I improvised with some red duct tape and a wooden dowel. You can't seem to find much of anything that says "Merry Christmas" these day :( ...'Country'

Looking great 'Country'! It looks like you had a good turnout and a lot of fun showing off that shiny plow :)

Your Cub looks very Christmasy, Country! Sure you had fun.

Never thought of putting a license plate on a Cub. Great idea!

I thought that looked like it, but with my crappy eyesight these days it'd have to be right in front of me to see it. :lol: That was a Memphis,TN. find and I knew when I saw it, it had a home with you -- I'm glad it's a good conversation starter.

Happiness is a shining disc! Looking good Country. I wish I could get my old disc's to shine like that, too many years outside.

Hey guys...THANKS SO MUCH for all the nice comments :{_}: I guess that Mayfield Farm's Tennessee soil was the reason for the shine. But I'd be remiss if I didn't tell y'all that I sprayed some KROIL on it to keep it shiny and rust-free until the next plow day :wink: It was such a kick for old 'Country' to drive in that parade and see all the young kids turn out to watch. Several of them shouted out "There's Santa" so I told them that my beard would grow back by Christmas Eve, and that "When there's no snow...Santa has to drive a tractor" :D I really envy you folks who have youngsters...the excitement and joy that they radiate from seeing the simple joys of Christmas really touches my heart :wink: ...'Country'

Hello Country, I don’t get on Farmall.com as much as I like to, but it’s good to see your early morning post again! I know you probably don’t remember me but George Willer introduced me to you back in Missouri at the first Cub-Arama. I sure miss those posts from years back after the all night possum huntin’ adventures and especially those Sunday dinner possum fixin’s recipes.

I’m a little further west now and the music is just a bit more western than country, but I still hear that fiddle player in the back ground.
I’m really good at doing nothing…With that said…I’m really, really good at doing nothing
