Optimists think the glass is half full.
Pessimists think the glass is half empty.
Engineers realize it's twice as big as it needs to be.

...actually #2, which the owner converted from horse drawn
to the 3 point hitch for the tractor, the horses were sold before
I started working from him as a kid....

...my first BIG job was loading the cow manure and spreading
in the fields during high winds, he thought that was funny...


...come on Ivan that was your go-kart, I see the stick shift on
the side.....
