Berlin, I think we can safely say that you're tougher than the tractor.

Thanks. Bob and Bernard , It got me good, but I have been very fortunate , had an excellent trauma team , good doctors an the rehab center that I was in is top notch. I got home two weeks ago today and am walking with a cane . I go back twice a week for physical/ ocupational therapy. I consider myself very fortunate to be alive an am very thankful for each new day .

Glad you are up and moving, looks easy to work on the clutch with that big chunk missing from the housing

If that's what a tractor looks like, after it messes with you, I'd hate to see a motorcycle, after trying to get you!

Berlin, I am glad you made it out alive and are recovering. Prayers still being said for you my friend! We lost a very dear friend just over a year ago to a tractor roll over and I witnessed a man get killed by a round baler years ago, neither was a good thing for anyone involved. I am glad you are still with us and I hope you recover to 100%!

Old tractors are a dime a dozen. Good people like you are hard to find. Glad you came out of this mess better than would have been expected.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.
