    I do some tractor work every now and then. Our neighbor had a power pole laying in his yard and I ask him if I could have it. He said sure. Took our son with me to get it and didn’t want to drag it home so I drove over it and chained it front and back.

    Our son has been wanting a toy excavator with a thumb for 3 years. Can't find one. Decided to make him a thumb for his. Had my buddy that runs the powdercoat place paint it for him.

    One of the various charity events they do out here is letting kids operate the HEAVY machinery and scoop dirt and such (sitting in lap of a professional of course). Anything like that in your area?

    Not that I'm aware of. We have several friends in the grading business and when we can we take them to watch them work and every now and then they get to ride along. They also love helping me do anything with our tractor and loader, they are both getting almost to big for me to take both at one time though.

    Made some pieces for a guys New Holland loader. Little thicker and added a brace. He mangled the other side. Had the arms burnt out with a laser.

    I almost went down that rabbit hole. Just couldn't justify the cost of training as a civilian and then a couple years of making less $ than i am now.

    Very cool pic!
