Personal projects that every one has?

Jan 10, 2021 | 18:06 31 We are lucky to have a certified aircraft mechanic that was a partner in our project. The stack of paperwork and documentation is unbelievable. If it was a “owner maintained” or an “experimental” is allot more flexible. Reply With Quote

    Started a quick paintjob on my dads old truck and it has snowballed a bit. No work off-farm this year and there's only so much beer to drink. Reply With Quote

  • Jan 10, 2021 | 20:43 36 I fixed up my dads 1976 ford when I was 16. Sold it and made a few bucks, wishing i would of kept it looking at yours. It looks like a great project. They don’t make them like that any more. Reply With Quote

  • Jan 10, 2021 | 21:27 38 I didnt think it would go quite this far. It was in decent shape when he parked it in the 80's and it fired right up for his funeral, looked pretty good but once I started sanding I didn't know when to stop. (That's him in the back) Reply With Quote

    That looks like quite the personalized casket. Is there a story that goes with it? I hope I’m not being too nosy............. Reply With Quote

    Looks like 2001 was a special year at the farm. House has a unique style.

    Jan 11, 2021 | 09:01 44 Woodland. In his younger days dad was a seismic driller, red seal motor mechanic, heavy duty mechanic, water well driller and worked winters up north till the mid 70's. He told me he wanted the cheapest coffin they had and don't pay a penny extra for decorations. We found his decal collection for farm and HD equipment, places he had been, oil companies he had worked for, his favorite football and hockey teams and whatever else we thought had a place in his life and decorated his casket with it.
    The truck was supposed to be for my brother and I to drive to the cemetery but when the funeral director saw it parked at the church he asked if we wanted to use it instead of the hearse. We stopped at the farm for dad to take a last look at his grandfathers Eaton house and barn while the pallbearers had a quick refreshment. Reply With Quote

    Very cool when people personalize those special days. I bet everyone there won’t forget about it.

    Thanks for the story🍀 Reply With Quote

  • Jan 11, 2021 | 12:27 47 This is a great thread. I really enjoy looking at the projects. Its very interesting to see the diverse skills and knowledge some famers have or will learn to accomplish a task.
    Nothing as interesting here. I spend a lot of time in the shop fixing the wife and kids’ cars to be on the road full time. A wheel bearing here, oil change there, new ball joints on farm truck, egr valve on car. Its like the vehicle codes are synchronized to give me 2 days grace and then a new drama sets in.
    I have been doing house upgrades in winters. Changed out all the plumbing to pex. Sewer from cast iron to pvc. Now I can install subfloor and nice flooring in the final phase in the basement.
    I fantasize about going into “housecat” mode. I will compare the comfort levels of the upstairs couch vs. the downstairs couch depending on the sunshine in the window. The household members can leave some food around and let me outside to pee twice a day.🙂
    Best line yet, Ronski, “there’s only so much beer to drink.”

    And just think of the possibilities, Bin could apply glyphosate with his new toy, and no one would suspect anything.
    And of course, since I am on ignore, he doesn't even need to defend himself. Reply With Quote

    Do we have any Billings Gazette's in western Canada?


    Leachman was way up here doing Piedmontese embrios in co-operators cows back in thier hay day.
    Big part of thier production came from co-operator herds.
    I don't think that worked out for everone invoved.
    Leachman could have been great reality tv! Reply With Quote

    This one was by our home in Florida, I should have bought it a took it home for a project.

    Very reasonable even in USA dollars.

    Some you win some you lose.

    Like a 7520 for 9500 dollars. Reply With Quote

    That had to be early mid 90’s. Don’t hear much if any of that breed anymore. When I was in 4h in those days I remember one or two of them. Reply With Quote
    SASKFARMER's Avatar Jan 13, 2021 | 08:28 54 O I remember the double muscle animals.

    They say 3 more seasons of Yellowstone will be produced can't go any further.

    Well, that's good since we're done three and four are already shot. Reply With Quote

    There was a period of time where virtually every cow breed was tried here. Double muscled had a bad rap for hard calving. Belgian Blue were the Pekingese of the cow world with caesareans more the norm than the exception. Reply With Quote

    My dad raised purebred Aberdeen angus in his early days and stuck with them his whole career. I have some video of him from the 1950’s. Those blacks then were sure a short legged, stocky beast. Blunt faced things. They were cute, even the old cows... Reply With Quote

    We got pictures from dad as a kid in 4H and they weren’t much taller than your belt buckle. Finished out at 923 lbs too.

    Back on topic.............


    Best personal (and future “personnel”) project anyone could have. She’s been coming out every day for feeding without complaining.
