hotfoot wrote:and maybe garden and tractor showyou are probably gonna get a laff out of this hotfoot but this board is so quiet gonna do it anyway.I wrote in my answer to JABoa that I did volunteer work on a railroad, and I have done that for like the last 4-5 years.Now my working life was white collar, computers, and and office. The work on the railroad was laying ties and gravel and hitting spikes with 4 pound hammers.We had to lay a lot of gravel and I learned very quick that shoveling gravel INTO a truck is not conducive to long life for a 50 some year old.Anyway, and to the point if there even is one, out of self preservation I learned how to drive a small John Deere tractor (and if you saw it you would probably think it was a lawn mower) that had like a 600lbs front end loader attachment.Now I learned to love driving that thing.Something about a 10 speed (ok 2X5) gear box's and 4 wheel drive.I mean in the lowest range the engine would redline at less than a walking speed.Anyhow for a City fellow, that was (and still is) a blast.Because of all the lack of rain for a long time and then this year rain way into the summer I have missed the oppertunity to get our lawn back in shape for this year (at least I think so), made some progress but not enough.Now making plans on leasing one of them little jewels of a tractors with a rotor tiller for next spring and the front end loader to start building up a base for my garden railroad.So there are some more things that can occupy time for us retired folks.oldred22
