Sorry to hear this Ed, Thanks for passing it along.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Very sad. I bought a tractor from him and he was a good man, fair, honest, and a pleasure to deal with. He will be missed by many.

I'm so sorry to hear about Mike. I pray for his family in this time of need.

Mike will be missed by many! His knowledge of not just cubs but all of IH was vast and can not be duplicated easily. IH was a way of life with Mike, from local shows to auctions to the Red Power Roundup. Chapter 18 will miss his effort that helped build a solid club. Mike leaves behind a wife (Jackie) of 41 years two sons a daughter in-law one grand son and another grandchild due in August. As a personal friend I cant say enough of the times we have spent together. RIP Mike
