Saturday Coffee

PostBy: Freddy On: Sat May 09, 2009 5:14 am

Another week slips behind us. Coffee is hot, donuts & muffins on the counter. Help your self, last one here does the dishes.

Rain almost all week, but yesterday the sun came out just long enough so the grass grew a foot. Blackflies are here, misquitoes can't be far behind. Hope you all have a smooth weekend!

Good morning Freddy...
The coffee is good but can't stay long. The Boys at the TOY store have a new check book magnet.

Did you get the 8N?????? Or has it made it's rounds to your dealer? Its SOOOOO purty and shiney! Would I like to have it? SURE! Can I justify it? Nope, my TC33DH is running just fine.

Morning Freddy, I had to settle for Instant DECAFF :woot: All out of the High-Test :mad:
But at least its nice and quiet right now, everyone is still sleeping. :D

It is fun to dream...

Morning all, trying to clear my eyes before I go play in a 3 man scramble. Hey PC, that looks a lot like the old NAA setting in my yard. So they made a retro model for dreamers? Whats this cloud and shower crap Freddie? It was supposed to be nice today!

First time I've seen or heard of the new one, nice! I'll stick with my relic for now, though.

I could use one of those! :idea:

My tractor is a Polaris Sportsman 800 ( it's more fun to play on than a tractor, but I can't dig with it :lol: ) & a John Deere G110 with a 54" cut for mowing. Took the J/D out for the first time this season & it died on me! :mad: Spent the rest of the daylight getting it running again & now everything is wet! I guess the dandilion patch will have to wait ( already a foot high ). :|

Yeah Freddy, we have both mosquitos & blackflies ................ they're heading your way now! :lol: I got annihilated by them last night trying to get the J/D running in the yard. Plus, I pulled a tick out of the back of my thigh. I thought it was a pimple or something -- was bugging me for days! That left a nice mark. Then to top it off, I yanked a deer tick out of my lower back this morning! Lyme disease is just what I need.... :sick:

I suppose those fellers are heading your way also! :lol:

Small Kubota -how small? Been dreaming about a 24-BX sized machine for a while now. Belly mower too.... There's a dealer just down the road and my eyes wander every time I drive by. I'd go w/any 4x TLB.

Chris keeps a noisy gaurd dawg on his TLB :)

Hi VigIIPB, The Kubota is a small "B" series (B 7500) 4x4 21 hp. with a 4' loader. We have a 60" rear finish mower and a 4' bush hog. This is the next larger tractor than the BX.
To do it over I would buy a larger tractor!!!! The Kubota has been very good.
The L4240 is on my list to buy with 44 hp. :D
