Hi to all again.

Tue Oct 09, 2007 3:27 am

Hi all. Yeah, I know I'm doing this a little backwards. I kinda skiped this forum and posted about a cub mag.

Anyway, my name is Doug as alot of you know already. We just got our first Cub on Sept 29. It makes it our 5th Farmall and our 13th tractor. I'm 35 and have been a Welder/Fabricator pretty much all my life. I think I struck my first arc when I was about 7 or 8(my old man was a welder). I've been around tractors my whole life also. My wife's name is Loni, and we've been married for a little over 2 years. Our son's name is Clay, and is already showing an interest in tractors. My wife wants a Farmall C. Our smallest tractor is the Cub we got, and the bigest we have is a Farmall MD.

I live in Hatfield PA., which is about 15 minutes south of Quakertown in southeast PA. My old man lives in Pennsburg Pa. which is where all our tractors are. He's got 10 acres, so I usually try to do big gardens every year.

I've gotta say that this IS the best forum on the net. Just the little bit I've been on so far, I can't help but notice how nice everyone is. I belong to another forum that can get downright nasty. But then again, the whole world ain't what it used to be. I wanted to thank everyone again for the great welcome you gave me, and for all the great help so far.

For Rudi, Bigdog, and everyone else involved with this site, KEEP UP THE GREAT FORUM. Thanks for your time. Doug

Welcome Doug! I am new here myself and I sure can't find a bad thing to say about the folks that frequent this site either. I have asked a few questions and it seems as though they all want to help. Makes a guy want to stick around when your treated so well.

Enjoy your Cub.

Glad to have you Doug!!! That picture looks looks like me and my boy cruising around on the Cub! Only I keep a little more hair on top!! I'd trade it all in a minute for those Cub headlights, though!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: I'm real proud of just about everything our son says and does, but he probably says "Track-Toor" a couple hundred times a day and I love it! His momma and the grandma's don't like it quite as much as I do though!!! Again, a big welcome from the Lone Star state!!!!

Mike, Thanks for the compliment, but don't hold your breath.LOL If and when we do move out of state, it's going to be Florida. I just can't take this cold damp PA weather anymore. I'm still young yet, I don't know what I'm gonna do when I get old. Oh, by the way, thanks for the picture posting help yesterday. Doug

Yeah, it's amazing how being treated good wants you to hang around more. I'm still trying to get used to not seeing smart remarks to topics. Doug

It doesn't get any better than kids on old tractors, it makes me smile. Yeah, some people think I've lost my hair. Truth is I have a full head of hair. I shave it every morning. Gets too hot welding. Doug

Well, that happens here too. The only difference is that it is all in good humor and never meant maliciously. The recipient also knows that. Good moderators make a big difference on any forum and they have them here.
