    Stinking thieves

    last Sunday someone broke my wife’s car window and then beat the crap out of the steering column! For their trouble they got a charging cord, handful of change and half a roll of SweetTarts! We got about a $1800-2000 bill. Did I tell I support the death penalty to be done at the soonest time...

One day one of the older guys ask “Kid...

    Do I need a tractor?

    I get more done in one day with my Kubota L225 and brush hog then the rest of the deer camp members doin a week clearing trails and moving firewood. Not bad for a 22hp for a 45 year old tractor and $350 brush hog. Just remember it’s a small tractor not a big bulldozer! Take small bite and go slow!
