    The making of a JD fan

    Hey guys. Found some old pics and scanned then in.

    Anyhow, here's how it starts...

    Next thing you know, they are pushing you off the tractor.

    BTW, that's me on my old 240 about 18 years ago in the first pic, and about 15 years ago in the second pic. The little JD fan is my nephew, who now drives my tractor "unassisted". LOL

    You realize your tractor driving days are numbered. Once he learns to drive it you'll not get him off of it.:empathy3:

    Randy,

    He is now 21 years old (I think :D ), and yes, it's tough to keep him off my tractor and the ATV.

    Of course, it's the same way with my son. :D Now that I think about it, I buy these tractors and don't get to run them much myself. I always hear "I'll mow the yard for you "Dad" or "Uncle Dave"... and off they go.

    If this is not a wonderful example of what makes this country great....then I don't know what is!

    Ahh, the freedom to live and bring the youth up properly by;

    1) Give em love (couldn't find a tractor...work with me)

    2) Teach em responsibility and how to work (ok, so they pushed you off the tractor to mow with out much teaching on your part but...)


    The point is, you hooked the next generation on Greene. Well done DaveT

    Thanks OneMarineE5.

    Both my guys (son and nephew) are indeed hard workers, and just good people.

    As for hooking them on JD... they had no choice.

    Dave:

    Good excuse for more tractors.

    The Marine is right. Kids like your son and nephew, that know how to work are the ones that will keep this great country going when we are gone. They will also need to support the ones who have not been taught how to work; usually by parents who do not know either.

    It is a shame that returning veterans, most of which are very young are not able to find jobs. They also know how to work. They work hard. They work long hours.
