They are alive again

Postby Festus » Fri May 31, 2013 12:29 pm

Hello all. Health concerns and family issues have kept me off this forum and away from all my toys and projects for about four years now. Since I am now healthy and other concerns have been resolved, I got the Cub, Super C and Super H out of hibernation the last few days. I could not believe that after four or more years all they needed was to charge the batteries (had to replace the Cub's battery) and clean the points and all three fired right up and ran as smooth as silk! I had put Sta-Bil in before I parked them, but again, that was four years ago. It's better to be lucky than good. I hope to take some time soon to catch up some on here and to play with the toys! Since the last time the Cub ran, we have added our first grandchild to the fold. She is almost three and absolutely loves any color tractor. She will be here any minute now for her first ride. I can't wait.

Glad to hear your health has improved,four years must have been rough. I have had health problems since May of 2012 and hope to be fit again this December. This past year has been tough on me not being able to do the things I could before my issues.
Enjoy your toys and that new grandchild.

Hey Festus ... was wondering where you got to. Glad all is well and you are better. Med issues can be a huge life changer. Glad you are still able to play with the toys. :D

Darn, it started to rain just as my granddaughter got here this afternoon so we had to postpone the tractor ride. We did take the gator out though as it has a canopy to stop the rain. She is truly the joy of my life right now and she thinks Papo can do no wrong. Boy is she in for a rude awakening at some point in the future!

God bless and I'll be around some to take advantage of the fellowship and the awesome knowledge and ideas that abound here.
