Cool Beans Pitchy !!....If We lived closer to each other I would give You one of My Gravely two wheel tractors to work on. I have a snow blower, sickle bar , snow plow , a 30" rotary mower , and a 42" rotary deck . You would have a blast with it. Darn. !!

I think that green is closer to Oliver but still a little too something. Anyway it's lovely. It does look like a streamliner doesn't it?
You and Norma have wonderful turkey day tomorrow. Eat way too much like I will and then nap through a ball game. May God Bless your house as you give thanks.

That's really nice Lenn. I'll bet that thing would make hay in some hard to get to places.
