    Hi, I check your blog daily. Your story-telling style is awesome, keep it up! Like the oldiron stories, you need to tell more. We have a lot of old tractors and equipment in Texas.

    The video of the planting with the #oldiron is pretty cool. How many yeas did they have 290s and through what years. I like to see that you have kept the antique planter and tractor running. Amazing how well they still work. Thanks for being a steward to old equipment.
