Wayne, I understand!
You were purposely hooking (or slicing) to the side with the gators.
This was used for an advantage!!
I salute you!!!!!
I always knew you had balls, I just didn’t know you utilized them so efficiently.

Lol being a redneck I said, hmmmm. Bet my son could.. and yes he can, but after thinking it through…. I do not want to take up art storage space with a gator head… what the heck was I even thinking….. pictures will suffice…

On a bit of a lighter note, today was Bucky‘s inauguration day. I can see this is going to be a much more intense learning process than I originally imagined. Surprisingly, the thing I can do most efficiently is walk him from one place to another. That's good because the turn radius is so short I couldn’t manage to back him with the pickup, Ranger.

I'm considering adding a tow ball to Ranger's front bumper so that I can push Bucky into place. I've recently realized that I have terrible depth perception because my post cataract lens implants are adjusted for monovision.

Oh Lord, I hope it is a real 'gator head and not your imitation mirror reflection.

Carl I had a student doing a rotation with me from a small town in KS. He told us how at their prom arriving in your dad’s new combine was the cool thing to do.

There was no Limos nearby and everyone drove a flashy truck daily. The girls were as farm raised as the boys were so they were all for it.

Out of the blue he contacted me on FB and thanked me for being a part of his training.

You have jumping trees in your crop fields?

Hard to miss them with a combine I bet.

I've ran 'em. That is satellite driven at a set diagonal degree across the field.....the head is pre-set on height too. You just have to watch for rocks, turn it around at the headlands, and dump when the grain tank is full.
