I lost my oldest cousin, Sgt Billy Herron  from mama's side this week, he was 93. It hurts to think of it, but he lost his love Sweet Jerri just a little while ago, I know they are celebrating....

I have no parts book and none I can find on the net, so my old tractor filter was ordered from the advice of 3 sites. It came in and was not the right one. I cannot return something That I ordered wrong. Had they sent what I didn't order I would return it.

Anyway I pulled the weeds, Ivy and vines off the tractor and used the Old filter, I finally got the dude started.

Sherry came over and followed me with the flashers on as I drove the mile or so back over here.

I was fortunate to get the road cleared and then it happened, a large bang, and I was covered with hydraulic fluid, A main line burst, (Knowing soon it could not be moved with no hydraulics) I drove it as fast as I could down to the house barely making it before all hydraulics died and the loader blade and Box scrape were both dragging on the ground. I had to sweep and clean about a 100 yards of road and driveway.... I have a very nice oil track from above Jim's houses down to the RV area of ours. LOL

Anyway I am beat and dreaming of our drive down to Florida soon. LOL

As always cats and kitties are around here...

Sorry for your family's loss, Jack. He lived a nice long life, but always hard to loss someone we love. Wow with the tractor and the problems with it! I bet you will be glad to head to Florida so you can get some rest!

So sorry for the loss of your cousin, although you can't argue that he lived a nice long life, some don't get that chance. Now he is reunited with his wife and I'm sure that brings the family some comfort.

I'm sorry to learn of Sgt. Billy's passing, but you're right. I'm sure there's a celebration going on 'upstairs.'

What an unpleasant turn of events with that tractor! Thank goodness you were able to get it home and didn't have to abandon it on the side of the road. I hope your clothes are salvageable!
