With more snow on the ground than I have ever seen at this time in March we are all going crazy waiting to get out and do the spring, summer and fall things like run with the collies all day, work om and drive the tractors and work in the garden.  So, today after fixing the garage door that tried to fall off its rails I took out all three tractors. 🙂 Old Allis ran like a champ like always.   Here she is showing off with Annie my Case SC.


Old Allis has had a decent rest the past couple of weeks……


Here is Molly my Allis Chalmers WC…. she sputtered a bit today and I figure she needs some spark plug wires and some new spark plugs…. then she will run perfect again.. she is due for a tune-up….


Here is Annie, the Case SC running…. if you look at the left front tire and the axle post up to the turning arm you will see it is all new paint.  What color is it?  She started up today and ran really good. So, I snuck her out of the garage and drove her into the snow.  She ran great and this was her first spin out of the garage since her tune-up.  She is a lot more lively than before and she did something to day she never did before … she took off in 4th gear … before she never had enough power to do so.  So, I put the throttle down to just above idle and tried fourth gear and she took off even then!  We spun around for a bit and had a bit of fun before I put her back.



Dad.. can we go play now?  Yes!! YAY!!!!


YAY!!! We are having lots of fun….. all together now let run and bark uncontrollably…. muwahahahaha

A song about Allis Chalmers…. its history and as it says the first tractors with rubber tires were Allis’…. the same year they became Persian Orange…. thanks for reading! 🙂

Here in the dead of winter the collies and I try to play the best we can in the cold and snow. It used to be easy but this winter is exceptionally icy, slippery, cold and nasty.   But, we have our fun.  As we go through this winter I am working hard at my new job and other new developments might be coming  in this area. 🙂

But, it is that time we begin to look towards the spring.  As old Allis snorts and growls through the snow I am busy plotting the coming garden, (which I will be working in this year since I wont have college!) and I am gearing up on more tractor work.  Spark Plug wires came today in the mail and I bought some old fashioned Auto Lite non-resistor spark plugs the other day so she can get a tune up.  Then, if need be work will be done on the magneto.  Then, if that takes care of the remaining problems on running the old Case will pull the plow and drag this year before the rest of the seal work gets done and I begin repainting her…..


As you can see Old Allis, my 1944 Allis Chalmers B is on your left and on the right is is Molly my old 1941 Allis Chalmers WC.  Dead center is Annie the old 1949 Case SC whom I will be working on this weekend and getting ready for spring plowing and dragging. 🙂

Also on the agenda is getting the collies ready for the spring breeding season.  We are hoping for either a Ginger/Lad mating or a special mating with our Laddie and a grand daughter of Hallie’s.  We shall see what happens.  We are hoping to meet some of our blogging friends this year also and to make the rounds to the tractor shows and since I now have a normal job to be able to take my tractors to some parades and shows also…..

Of course, I am looking forward to time with the collies.  The hammock wars with Ginger, playing in the sunshine and just having fun. We are also looking to go to Edsel Ford’s home and perhaps a few other Ford historical sites.

But, mainly I am looking forward to spending time with my collies….


I Ginger am looking forward to battling for the Hammock and world domination as usual!  Wait till the old guy sees what I have cooked up over the winter!  After all, I have 24/7 to work on my dreams.. MUWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Will the old guy survive? Will he lose  his sanity?  Will he run away….  we shall see!




Dream on Old Guy…..  soon I Ginger will show you my hopes and dreams…
