Tractor Poor

Tue Sep 16, 2008 10:14 am


A little about myself, my name is Jim and I live in a small town in Mid Michigan. I have a beautiful and very understanding wife and two lovely, but crazy little girls. I am a full time employee for the Michigan Army National Guards, which takes a lot of time away from home, a part time Firefighter and I would have to say a part time Hobby Farmer with all the animals we own, I needed something to keep my kids busy.

I am new to these things they call tractors. I was looking for a trailer in March of this year and found one that came with a 1946 "A". The deal was so good I could not turn it down. Since then I have aquired another 1946 "A" and a 1948 Cub. Well I would have to say that my wife aquired the Cub, she drove by it one day and the next day we owned our first Cub. So I would have to guess that the Red Fever bug has bite us hard. We have purchased 3 tractors in less than 5 months. I have my hands full.

Thanks for the forum, I am looking forward to the good times.
