Nice, I've only got two that have been there, and two "odd" ones to go lol.
I have given mine one freebie, you get one ticket fender bender that's not gonna cost you(at least out of your pocket), I figure it takes some of the stress that could be on them. That being said every child is different and I'm thinking with my son that allowance may be slightly modified, probably with him putting cash into the til before he even starts driving :envy::lol:.
Hope it goes well with your last odd one :).
in the 'old school daze' it was don't drink and drive, or be sure your space to move over to is clear... but these days... while its still don't drink n drive... its also don't text and drive...

but everyone does. kids and adults alike.

well, other than 'present company'... :D

bottom line in any accident is well-being. good your daughter was not hurt. I will never forget the tale of a friend's daughter and her b/f... smooching as he was driving 65 mph down the FM road... and into the RR bridge they went. both survived, but not a very pretty picture!

That would keep a guy a little warmer.
My son and I were working the other day out in the wind, I thought I was gonna have to take a break, but after throwing about 30 medium size pine branches I was good to go until we left.
I need a real small saw with heated handles :blob2:.
don't think they make any... but the do make heated gloves... :yes:

Good Morning GMci'rs... start of another week.
Monday SE TX - 3 am and 64f out high today about mid-70s.
Precipitation: 60%
Wind: 4 MPH
Humidity: 97%

glad it is warming up here. plenty I could have done outside today, and should have, but I tended to follow RAY and neely's ideal for the day. didn't get no Brussels today, but did manage a nice side of edible pod peas... real tasty, i might add! gave a neighbor a load of fresh bok choy.

time to get on with some of the day's chores... speaking of time, my time proven ol Craftsman saw blade clock seems to have taken a powder. won't tell me the time. :( but I am on the hunt for a suitable replacement clockworks...

:drinkingcoffee:

'over n out!'

I'd probably only be able to do 3 rows, gotta get me a stick :laugh:.
That's nice, I could use it for doing some grading cleanup on certain jobs, it would be great for the job I've been working on the last couple months. They aren't paying for that much work though, they did agree to my price for the last two trees left in the opening I've created by clearing the invasive trees/vines out. One of the trees has an oriental bittersweet with a main vine that's 2" plus, then a few smaller vines as well :eek:.
Have you used it much as a root rake, or doesn't it go deep enough. My tractor doesn't have enough butt to run a root rake digging very deep at all unless the tines are narrow and the bucket is small too(width wise).
it will work pretty good for roots as long as they aren't not to big. once i got the hang of it how to level the bucket at the right angles i can smooth out things pretty good. i can root out 3-4" saplings pretty easy when i need to make a path to a tree in the woods. works pretty good on multiflora rose too.
