  1. Hi Scott!
    Thanks for being a part of this great nation. I have an undated, we think late 60’s Ford Diesel tractor.
    Also a collection of very old generators.
    You worry about falling in the water while trying to catch an ice fish. Are they pre-frozen?
    We have to watch out for gator slides and especially momma gator when she has a mess of babies.
    Get close then and she will gobble ya right up.
    God bless ya brother..
