    Foods you ate growing up that most folks don't eat today

    I'm guessing this was long enough ago that canned dog food was still made from wild mustangs and you could get a case for like 2 bucks or 20 cents a can individually. So ... either she liked organic horse meat or she liked the price. Canned meat for humans isn't much different, only has more...

    Groan part quatre

    You'd need the "Clockwork Orange" set-up to keep them from turning away ... then some defense attorney would sue the US based on cruel and unusual punishment & taxpayers would be on the hook for the PTSD claim.

    I need some input on roll around tool boxes

    I've got a few of the US Generals. (56 bottom/3 of the 5 drawer carts (one as a top box together with a 26" top)/an old-style single bank top & bottom) Replaced the fixed wheels with casters on initial assembly so I didn't have to deal with the back & forth to move it where I wanted. Agree...

    Tractors and wood! Show your pics

Is the butt still attached to the root ball? if not, can you trim the top & one side then roll it onto that side with the winch? At least she should drop some to where you could walk out without being too high...

    Tractors and wood! Show your pics

    How high up is the trunk where it crosses onto your property? I might try getting on top there (ladder or FEL) with a chain & limber & walking up towards tip as far as I could while it still felt stable. At least you're cutting "in the way branches" that aren't holding it up & you'll get a...

    Cowboy boot care

    Had some tony lamas elephant skin I wore for close to 30 years. Shafts never gave me an issue & the uppers were (almost) indestructible ... resoled them 5 or 6 times/reheeled probably twice that. Finally, the elephant uppers split across the top of my toes right where the shift pedal on my...

    Looking for the right Rake Grapple

    Check out American Attachments. I got a root grapple & pallet forks from them 3 or so years ago, & they do everything I need. @ 50 hp, I use the economy root grapple for its lighter weight/better load capacity. They have an economy grapple rake 60" & 66" ... the Heavy & Super duties are 72" &...
