Thank You.

I have finally accepted that I wasn't dreaming, and Dad's Farmall H is really home, and to stay. Cub-Bud sent me a list of those involved, but I have no way to get in touch with all of you except here, so Thank You, from the bottom of my heart. I still can't understand why the bunch of you picked me to do this for, but I am sure glad you did. If anyone was missed on this list, please forgive me, it was not intetional.

Your welcome John! :D I think the number of posts you have says something about how much you contribute to this forum! Also everynight in the chat. 8) Glad to see it work out so well. :P

Well, John....

One could say many things......

Like:

It couldn't happen to a nicer guy.....But that wouldn't be accurate.... :D :D

or...

No one is more deserving......But, umm....hey, what about me...?? :D :D

In the end, John.....the truth is, like all of us, you are full of wonderful qualities, and we love you, just the way you are.

Enjoy it in good health!!!

Thanks to Bud and everyone else for allowing me the opportunity to help, and to show my appreciation to you!!!!

John:

May as well get in here too....

You should know why my friend :!: You are one of the reasons why we have such a wonderful family here. You inspire, support, help, encourage, enable and provide the daily chuckle to so many people.. you make being part of this family truly great.

And your posts are always humourous, helpful, informative and genuine...

Thanks for being who you are, and Larry, thanks for letting me help and somewhat repay John for all the friendship he has offered freely... to all of us :!:

Actually that just means I talk a lot.

For those who didn't see it in earlier psots, this picture is of me with the tractor, before I knew anything about it being given to me. The smile is because I was so glad to see Dad's old tractor looking so good.

WoW John'' I didn't know a thing about it, and of course I wouldn't have bean able to contribute this far away anyway. This couldn't have happened to a greater guy. Congrats---------Jack_---------------

John, my friend

The pleasure was all ours. And I can't thank Bud enough for allowing us the opportunity to share in this wonderful celebration.

Jack,

The great thing about this project is that people contributed from New Brunswick (Northeast of Maine) to Mississippi.....from Maryland to Texas, and maybe even further west, I'm not sure of the geography of everyone on the list.

Bud and his Dad did a lot of the Gruntwork, and some of the people local to them helped a lot with that. Those of us who were too far away sent parts, or the money to pay for parts, as needed.

Don't feel bad about missing an opportunity to help.....another will come along. There have been other projects where help was needed. Just like cubfests, if you have an idea to help another member, send out the word and others will help, in one way or another........

As Rudi says, we are a family of sorts.......and family helps, when the call goes out.

This sort of thing merely underlines what I already know. We are all people of good heart here. That's what sets us apart. The fact that we all are interested in a small red tractor is dwarfed by that fact alone.

Bud Fisher Senior/Junior and Russ Leggitt are the hero’s in my opinion. They were the ones who did the Gruntwork, as Tom said. I know first hand what it takes to work on those big tractors.

When I first inspected the tractor, I looked at Bud and said “how did you do this”. He said “it was nothing to it…I couldn’t have done it without the support of you guy’s”.

John, the first time I met you, you didn’t know me from “Adam”. You asked me my name, smiled,shook my hand and said “it’s a pleasure to meet you” and gave me one of your Cub hats. That type of quality by today’s standard is very hard to find. That day you introduced me to a very fine group of people. (The Farmallcub.com family)
:D

Amanda wrote something on one of her post a while back. I could not say it better, she said; “I wish we all lived closer together”. Well, I guess until then, we are only a mouse click away!!!.
