  1. Yes! Those are my crutches leaning up against the tailgate of the truck. How else would you expect me to get back to the place where I had to climb up? Think "therapy".
  2. Blunderbuss2, Whenever I even look at bike riders and think about putting my broken, split in half pelvis on one of those seats it gives me a pain u can't imagine! Until they make a stratolonger rec...
  3. Blunderbuss2, U have got that right! My legs are so weak I feel like a rag doll as I slither out of my truck and my feet touch the ground. I always wonder if they will even hold me up. Somehow I sta...

  12. Quantumphisica, Coop was/is a Brand of fuel popular in the Mid West and used by many of the farmers there. It is a farmers COOPERATIVE Company that started back in the 1920s and even had its own ref...
  13. Trey, I should have mentioned that I don't let that slow me down a lot at I continue putting footings in the ground with my Bobcat and hope to stand a few signs later this week. Yes I'm slower but not...
  14. Trey, Thx for the well wishes but you're early as I'm not yet on my feet. Still in the wheelchair but perhaps this week they might let me try crutches for very short walks. We shall see?
  15. Officialfuel Thx for the love it.
  16. Blunderbuss2, The pix I saw of St Martin looked like a trash pile. Very very sad! Glad you're re cooping. I hope to start on crutches later this week. That'll be a huge improvement over the confin...
  17. Trey, You're just like an old Penny, you just keep showing up over and over again!
  18. Blunderbuss2 I'm glad to hear from u as we were worried about u. If you're ready to push my chair u must be out of the hospital and healing? Did your home survive the devastation? I heard that 90% of...
  19. EJW-54 Yep! It still jolts me every time I see the pix! Finding a Frontier in the wild is quite the feat these days.
  20. Blunderbuss2 Yes I can drive, however getting in to my tall truck from a wheelchair takes real creativity. As I lift my body off the wheelchair seat with my arms, my wife slides 5 big slabs of 2x12s...
  21. Trey, Will see the surgeon on Tue and hopefully get the go ahead for physical therapy and eventually learn to walk again. Bone healing is a very slow process for us old folks no matter how hard we tr...
  22. Trey, Not sure She'll ever displayed their 2 piece 6' signs on poles so we built our own from 2 antique poles and some creativity
  23. Coke1234, Than,s for the comment. Glad to hear that u vote! Very very important in a Free Nation to vote! It gives us the RIGHT to complain about anything we want any time we want to, unless it's abo...
  24. Gulf99 Life is getting more and more difficult as people become less honest in their dealings. Since no one makes 6' repro signs and that's what we collect, we don't have to deal with the bad guys as...
  25. Racer4four, Thx. We like it too & it's very different than our other signs
  26. I wanna know what your feisty wife says about them! That's gonna be the sales job of the Century to get her approval to hang them in her space!
  27. Buckethead, 23 hr drive to get to Des Moines and we went 2 days early so nothing could get past us and this was the only sign we bought! Prices were very high. Sellers market place but not good for b...
  28. Valentino97, To keep the record straight; my wife was never in the Collecting. She "tolerates" my collecting. Since my accident she goes with me and "supports" me in my collecting because I literally...
  29. Blunderbuss2 Thx for the love it. Few wives are willing to do this nonsence!
  30. Coke1234, Thx for the observation. This wonderful woman has tolerated me for 53 yrs and is the light of my life! We are at 101 signs in the air and should have another ready to stand tomorrow! Can't...
  31. Akrodog, Thx for the love it
  32. Gulf99 Ha! Try it with an IPad that has a mind of its own and substitutes whatever words it wants for mine! It's "the new world order" ! I'll stick with cars, planes and porcelain and laugh at mysel...
  33. Bobby725, Thx for the well wishes. I feel like I'm getting better a little every day, but the not walking nor putting ANY weight on either foot/leg is getting old after 2 months in the chair. Of cour...
  34. Gulf99, Just a thought: in a day when reading writing and arithmetic was taught along with helping old people across the street, it seems that was easier and made more sense. Now with higher taxes, ...
  35. Bobby725, Agreed. We deserve to get out what we pay in and resent others breaking the system by taking out what they did not pay in. Makes sense to me, but I'm old!
  36. Gulf 99, Yep! U got the picture. Over 60% of Millenials polled were for Socialism as compared to Capitalism when Bernie was trying to get the Democratic bid to run for Pres. Very interesting what ou...
  37. Buckethead, Not sure what's happening to our people in America, I'm old and crippled now and in a wheelchair and it is very rare that anyone offers to help my 75 yr old wife put the wheel chair in th...
  38. Oaktreedude Yep! He's another kind of Collector that's a bit harder to understand, and yet we didn't live in his shoes. We call them hoarders because we ant understand their motivations. I've seen ma...
  39. Wow! I want this sign
  40. OakTreeDude Thx for the love it. Amazing that so few love something soooo cool?
  41. CardinalLady Unfortunately while I was on vacation the owner of the tractors sold them at an auction. I missed everything!
  42. Oaktreedude Since the time that I posted the pix on CW, I actually returned to the old farm and purchased the 37 Dodge truck and it is now located in the Collection at Lakeside Storage Museum
  43. Jcscott0363 Thx for the love it
  44. Caperkid, Thx for the compliment. Pretty hard to find sign and expensive when u finally find one these days
  45. Caperkid I would love to find a 6' White Rose or Magnolia sign but not sure they ever even made them that big. I have never seen one for sale.
  46. Trsparks Thx for the love it
  47. Oroyoroyisthatyourhorse, Thx for the well wishes
  48. Trsparks Thx for the love it
