Hi Dee Ho, from coastal Connecticut!

Postby Kit Sumner » Thu Jan 11, 2007 8:27 pm

An enthusiastic hello to all you wonderful Cub lovers! Last Oct. I purchased
a 1959 Farmall Cub (ser.# 213121 J) which came with a York rake and a
belly mower. Shortly after, I had some elective surgery on both hands (I'm
progressing well). While I'm on the mend, your incredible forum has been a
tremendous inspiration.
As a youngster, I lived and worked on a relative's farm for a summer. Later
as a young adult, I operated a tractor and mowed fields for a farmer friend.
It's an awesome experience being connected to the soil, injesting its fra-
grance. I've always admired the vital role of tractors in the 20th century of
our country... yet I NEVER dreamed I'd one day own one! She's a beauty
(and you'd think so too), a bit rough around the ankles & definitely needing a TLC restoration. But she sounds so sweet... and I absolutely love her!
Thanks for being the wonderful sharing resource that you are. It's great to be part of the Farmall Cub family. Best regards to all, Kit

Kit - the dog in the picture belongs to Donny Millar (Donny M) here on the forum. It is indeed a chocolate lab and it has the dubious honor of being named after me.
My dogs are chinese shar pei. We are down to 2 dogs now - a 10 year old black brushcoat male and a 7 year old bearcoat female.

Bigdog, thanks for setting me straight. Dogs are wonderful companions and they never ask for anything but our love. Well, ah, now that I think about it,
our dog Jake has never refused a treat. :D :D :D

Thanks, Bob. Clinton is a lovely town, but I think Southbury is really beautiful. I spent a lot of time there when they built Southbury Village in the 60's - I was trying to earn money as a painter to go to UCONN. The image of your gorgeous rolling hills, woodlands & busy well-kept farms is still fresh in my mind. :D
