    The JD "M"......Moving Day!

    Well I finally got my trailer up here to move 'Her"[50miles] And, I wasn't as hair raising, as I thought! Ya see, I've got that 16' Triton Aluminum trailer with the brake system, and I have the brake controller, but never got it wired! So thus, no trailer brakes. It was a pretty easy ride, I know the "M" doesn't weigh that much, but the tires are 'loaded', so I do have some weight. Well at 53-55 mph, she's at her new home! Now to finish the barn with doors and a concrete floor, and 'voila', a work shop! As few know at my workplace, After 47 yrs, I've put in my retirement papers. I've only told a few close friend, of which, I consider you guys in that bunch! So, now to get the barn weather-tite and some power run, I should be in business! It's with mixed emotions that I leave my employer after such a long 'ride'! But I think it's time! Took 'her' over to neighbors, to let them 'fawn' over it! I think I made the right move with the "M" purchase, and the retirement decision............We'll see..~~Scotty
