    My new green and yellow pet

    After all the Deeres, I got a GATOR now.

    The Gator isn't only for me. In former times, when my friends and I drove w/ our tractors to a show or plowday, Doris, my wife, often visited me w/ her car (and her bicycle).
    The weekend after the next, our community has a plowday 40 miles away. I want to drive w/ the 3120 and the tandem hauler and Doris shall drive with the XUV 550 and the caravan.

    I hope she'll enjoy the little journey like I'll do - and maybe in future we'll oftener drive together (btw: this year we're 40 years together).

    Parting is fine, Keith, after all the years... And you're right, it's a fine gift

    The GATOR is my Weekend Freedom Machine and if my wife likes to ride the GATOR, we'll buy her one

    Nice Gator. I'm sure the wife will love it too!

    Congratulations on 40 years!!

    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride!

    There are many benefits to getting the wife interested in these green machines. Sharon really encouraged me to expand the herd when we had the room at the last place, and she was the motivator behind my building the home-made center blade and the landscape rake -- both of which she used more than I did.

    Once I bought her a Johnny Bucket Senior front scoop attachment for our 322 for Valentine's day (had to include some Ruby earrings as well, but you get the idea...)
