New member here from Poplarville, Ms. The wife and I have had JD equipment for years. Today we purchased a new X750 for her. Looking forward to many years of use. I am a mechanical engineer several years from retirement so maintenance is something I am very keen on. Also have a 1953 Model 40 waiting to be restored but that’s an altogether different thread. Cheers!

My son just moved to Hattiesburg a couple months ago. He's also a mechanical engineer.

Welcome from SW Ohio!

Mississippi is the one state in the Southeast that I haven't been to but I definitely want to go. I love the South!

Thanks! We don’t have nearly the attractions of some places but there are several pretty good ones. The Natchez Trace is beautiful, the gulf coast is nice, and there are several well preserved Civil War battlefields. We also have a presidential library in Biloxi, Beauvoir. The cost of living is great, the food is good, manners and hospitality are real. And a gal with a Mississippi drawl will just melt you.

Isn't that the truth, on long weekends when I was in the Marines I used to go to Grenada with a buddy of mine, pretty sure I fell in love every time I went. :thumbup1gif::laugh:

I had to look up the Library as I wasn't familiar with it. Hopefully the politically correct crowd doesn't start hollering to shut it down. Looks beautiful!! :good2:

Ain't that the truth!! I spent a lot of time in the South and the "native born GRITS" (Girls Raised In The South :laugh:) will just draw you in. :flag_of_truce: But I think that Sweetie might have a little something to say about me being "melted by a drawl" these days! :laugh:

I was headed to ATL many years ago and the woman next to me on the plane was a columnist for the "Hattiesburg American". She ended up writing a column about sitting next to me on the plane and the conversation we had - part of which revolved around accents/drawls and dialect. I tried to find a link to her column, but all of them appear to be pay sites.
