New Cub Story!

Postby Dennis » Tue Jan 05, 2010 1:48 pm

A refreshing update to our Cub Storied collection by your friend and mine, Barnyard Bill:

It All Started with a Yardsale

I'm sure many more of you have some hidden talent that is just waiting to be unleashed, especially during this COLD weather. It's a great time to spend at the keyboard writing about your favorite tractor and all the wonderful people that you've met.

Thanks Bill for the nice surprise in my email and who knows, you may be the next one published like our dear friend 'Country' Elliott and his "Reflection of the 50's" story -- (yes 'Country's story is being published in a soon to be released book.)

Good story Bill!

Thanks for all the compliments fellas. I really enjoy the fun this forum brings. Rosie and I are thankful for the friendships we have made and always look forward to meeting more of the members. It is truly amazing that strangers can come together in this type venue and feel as though they have known each other for ages.

Thanks for posting my story Dennis!
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.
