  • Slicker,

    You are the sort of HONEST TO GAWD NEIGHBOR every farming community should get from the city.

    Being part of a real farming or ranching community may well be the greatest blessing anyone can have.

    Congratulations, you are now entitled to wear your John Deere cap with the bill tilted up and the High Plains sun on your face.

    Just don't get so wrapped up in the controls of one rig that you try to operate another exactly the same.

    Some of the old timers, or those who attend the antique tractor shows and examine closely will understand a Farmall "pro" getting on a Poppin' Johnny to pull a silage wagon forward and "hitting the clutch" real hard with the left foot.

    Until we changed out that steel pipe wagon tongue, my Kansas uncle had the only wagon tongue in JayHawk Land with a perfect U-shape.

    Never knew before that you can wrap a steel tongue around the left rear wheel of a JD, park the tractor right alongside the wagon with the tongue still attached -- and bring an entire silage harvest crew to their knees laughing.
