        I'm here too! Busy fixing big tractors...

        But, it is warming up and the grass is getting green. Going to help Lance next weekend move stuff to Illinois for storage. Then have to get yard and garden equipment ready to go for the season. Plan to mow with the 1650 Lance picked up for me last year. So, I will do a thread on that when I get to it.

        I ain't scared of a mutated flu virus, but apparently the governor of our lousy state is! Shut down all schools for two weeks!!! So now we need food to feed all these kids lunch, but oh yeah, the stores are bare because of the idiots who think the world is going to end. Every freaking store is going bare! Rrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

              Schools down for 3 weeks here, the biggest part of our business is for a few airlines, worried that they will quit spending money on silly things like signs.
              3 weeks with no school, we're too old to have kids but what are all those parents going to do, need somebody to watch them if they are young, lunch for them, etc. I feel sorry for those people. Just don't quite get it...

                My brother works for a hospital in the (northern, nicer) Chicago suburbs- they just got tests and started testing this morning- they are in full pandemic mode and are isolating floors of the hospital already. Said lots of contagious people coming in. I'll talk to him tonight after work but the situation doesn't sound good. This is not the suburban hospital that had positive patients earlier this week.

                I don't get the hoarding of the cleaning products....everything I've seen is it's a 2-3 week run. How much do you really need?

                Work had been slow, but dramatically slowed down even more towards the end of the week. Next few weeks should be interesting.

                On a good note, last Sunday I had the 1050 out and moldboarded the rest of my garden. I should get some pics up.

                  Oh, I'm around. Been sitting tight.
                  Same in our neck of the woods. Governor "dipshit" closed scrools for three weeks. Stores are out of TP, and I'm hearing folks are all in a freak out over the virus. I really don't know what to think. I do know, I don't "need" it...
                  I'm doing my normal, staying around the home front. I like it better that way.
                  They can't all be turn key.
                  Make the best of each and every day.

                    All I know is I have 4 rolls left and theres none to be found in my town. Good thing my mom lives next door! Including spring break, school is out for 4 weeks here. My son is in a half day work program and is beyond excited that hes gonna make some good money working full time hours for a month. I see Walmart has started closing stores at 11 to restock instead of being open 24 hours. I just hope this crap passes soon and we cant return to our normal lives.

                      Fall was real wet so I never got a chance to plow.....weather had been good and ground looked dry enough to work so i went for it. Really like this tractor.

                        Same here, too wet to plow in the fall. I also really like my 1050. Especially after adding the creeper, sleeve hitch, spring assist and going to skinny front snd 8.50 rear tires. Now if I can get the front grille shell fixed so I can put lights on it, switch to a CI rear so I can put one of my rear PTO's on it and get a 14hp (or a 16 if I can find one) in it, I think it will be the perfect garden tractor. Hydraulics would be nice too, lol.

                          Hydraulic lift would be nice on one of these! Can be tough to lift even with the spring assist.

                        Ran out of TP at work on Friday, barely made it out of the Dollar General with the last pack of Angel Soft. Boss makes a dollar, I make a dime, that's why I poop on company time. That's coming back to burn me, though. I work in an industry that caters to bars and restaurants, which were also shut down by my asshat governor.

                        About to put the cub on a trailer and start roto tilling gardens. I figure it shouldn't be hard to scare up 4-5 jobs a day and quadruple my current salary while I'm laid off, in cash.

                        Had a special election in PA yesterday, it was definitely strange working the polls and not shaking hands with people.

                        Other than that, I'm a crazy Libertarian prepper, so I've been ready for this my whole life. Let the boogaloo begin.

                          Well Illinois is officially on lockdown tomorrow. I'm an auto mechanic and repair is considered an essential service....so I'm working through it. A lot of people losing their jobs. Service has been very slow lately, so I don't anticipate being too busy. Just come in and wait for a breakdown to show up.....

                            South east Pennsylvania mostly shut down by the governor.

                            Son is a musician on cruise ships. Obviously not now. With bars, restaurants and clubs shut down, no small income from gigs. He bought his first house in December, small house. Daughter works in a medical lab. Workload is 1/3 normal due to elimination of elective procedures. She is anticipating a lay off.

                            No snow this winter. So I plowed the leaf compost pile. Found the crankshaft seal behind the PTO (Kohler CH18) weeping slightly. Original seal from ~ 1993. Never had PTO off engine. Replaced seal along with exhaust gaskets.

                            Watching grass turn green. Hanging out, staying home.
