Ran across a couple of pictures the other day of me and dad working tractors together. The things we use them for have changed gears a little through the years but we have spent many good days working them together and time I would take nothing for. Maybe thats why when we get older they mean so much to us. Whether it was time spent just fixing one up or working them on the farm there always in the times you remember and stories you talk about as time goes by.

Thanks Betty. I was blessed with two of the best parents anyone could ever have and I'm sure we all feel that way. I think thats whats great about this site is we all share the same feelings about our families and whether its with our children or our parents or both a old tractor or other equipment seems to be a big part of it. I guess thats why our barns and sheds get hard to walk through is because there are just to many good times and memories go along with them.

Thanks for sharing the pics and story. Made me tear up a little though. The first one reminded me so much of some memories of my Dad! Different tractor but same senerio. Thanks



Thanks Mike. I bet I put a million miles on that old cub whether it was running or not. Dad was told it was a 52 when he got it and if I can find one hope to try and fix one up in the next year.

The feeling is mutual Caseman and dad still has the hat and he keeps it in his truck but will wear it when he knows he won't get it dirty.

Gordon, if anybody ever doubted it, this post proves that farming families that work and play together produce a lifetime of wonderful memories. The folks that complained about how hard farmin' is, and how glad they are/were to leave the farm have no idea of what they are missing or have missed :!: :D

Gordon, I must say some good old country cooking must have turned that little fellow in the first picture into that big ol' boy on that John Deere in the last... :lol: :lol: :lol: Good pictures and great memories of a simpler time in our lives, ain't it...Of course, it doesn't seem as though May of '70 was really that long ago...

We grew up on a farm, had the most amazing childhood, and yes...I miss being out there on a farm more than I can say...

You are right my friend. Quite a few Sunday dinners between the two pics but you know looking at the pics I think dad needed to put on a few pounds. :lol: :lol: :lol: :D

You are correct John I was born November 21, 1963 so I guess I was around six and a half.
