A Little Thanksgiving Tractoring

Recommended Posts

MPH
After 3368 miles through the plains, over the rivers and around the mountains from grandmothers house, a trip to Fairbanks airport, a flt from Fl and a rented car from anchorage and a flt from Albq to Chyenne, my faimly was all together for Thanksgiving. ^ Wednesday I decided to wash the road trip off the PT while Nick was dragging the driveway with the LL, he got his camera out and caught me in the act. I was tapped into my 350 gal hot water tank8D


then told me to smile


After everone worked together to put on a Thanksgiving Dinner 'that couldn't be beat', We decided to cut down some bettle kill in the yard and have a bon-fire. Tony grabbed the saw.


Melinda worked the hardest pulling them into the yard






As you can tell, she got pretty stressed out from working so hard


This is what was left of the fire after dark, we were all to full yet to roast marshmallows as intended.


Nick took pictures and Elizabeth stayed in the warm house. We finished the nite off with a nice hot saunna. Great day

That looks like a great day of family working and playing together, just the way it should be. I had intentions of a bon-fire for the granddaughters, but we were blessed with cold rain just short of sleet.:(! You made some great family memories that day. All that help and only one tractor being put to work? Must have had a lot of extra energy. :)

Sorry Storm, didn't mean to make you feel bad. Somehow I got a pretty good bunch of kids, and yes Roy, they are related to me, why do you think they do such crazy stuff^^:D The headlite on the LL is dirty from the muffler, this one has the holes in the side, if I set it miss the headlite it blows on the carb. Gonna fix that someday:I

My hot water tank is plumbed into/through my wood stove I heat the house and shop with Peter. Hot water is merely a by-product of staying warm 7 months outta the year.^ Reason for the 350 gallon tank is it was a freebie^^ I do burn bettle kill but I prefer firekill spruce [after a forest fire] as it is basicly killin-dried standing up, very little limbing left to do and rings when you hit 2 pieces together. Alaska's "Prime" firewood.

Hey Marty I figured out how you got your family up there for Thanksgiving LOL THANKSGIVING DIVORCE A man named Marty calls his son in Albequerque and says, "I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough. "Pop, what are you talking about," the son screams. "We can't stand the sight of each other any longer", Marty says."We're sick and tired of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her." And he hangs up. Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like heck they're getting a divorce, she shouts. I'll take care of this." She calls Alaska immediately, and screams at Marty, "You are NOT getting divorced! Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then don't do a thing, Do you hear me?" And she hangs up. Marty hangs up his phone, smiles and turns to his wife..... "They're coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way."

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
