  3. More house work... master bath

    But honey, i had to make the doorway wider. Why else would I agree to build a custom shower except to be able to wash tractors in there, The tractors really like the heated floor to!

    Thanks @Achto Your McLean is certainly a nice rare one and quite a restoration project.

  8. Hello All - New to Site

    It's great to hear of Horses that are pasted down through family, and they just keep making memories. Others will be along with some seat recommendations. The C-Series were and are great machines and will run the following decks C-120 42" deck maybe stretching to 48" if well groomed. C-140 48" deck, C160, 48" deck. The C series are great machines and have less safety switches compared to the 300, 400 and 500 Series. But being older can be a little harder to find in good condition, very dependent on where you live. The 300, 400, 500 series are also very good machines, THe later year models had more safety switches, indicator lights, etc which add a possibility of an electrical problem. 300 Series 312, 314, 315 42 to 48" deck 400 Series 417,418 42 or 48 deck 500 Series 42,48 or 60" deck

  13. What's up with that?

    All that sausage does look to a Czech Sausage Maker like me! Also if you want to talk Good Eats, "Czech" out the Kolaches at Weikels Bakery in LaGrange, Tx (where I grew up) or Hruska Store in nearby Ellinger, Tx. Lots of places may sell Kolaches, but these "Czechs know how to bake. My wife has tried numerous Kolacke dough recipes over the years and can't find one take comes close to there's. https://www.google.com/maps/uv?hl=en&pb=!1s0x864388a359aa208d:0x5385f19e957eb1f2!2m22!2m2!1i80!2i80!3m1!2i20!16m16!1b1!2m2!1m1!1e1!2m2!1m1!1e3!2m2!1m1!1e5!2m2!1m1!1e4!2m2!1m1!1e6!3m1!7e115!4shttps://lh5.googleusercontent.com/p/AF1QipNilv1oWUhlKmGQwghf1uBUjo_AFU_Hcrhdythx%3Dw355-h200-k-no!5sweikels+bakery+la+grange+-+Google+Search&imagekey=!1e10!2sAF1QipNilv1oWUhlKmGQwghf1uBUjo_AFU_Hcrhdythx&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiU-8aXwPnbAhUC7qwKHWnAA3wQoioIiwEwEg
