You all know how the old guy loves Liverpool. Well, I Ginger have taken over this blog because I have something to say. As you all know I am sort of twisted and bitter at times but I am proud.  I am sick of being in the shadows as the plotting world dictator wannabe.  I am that, but I am much more. You see, I keep this place hopping and active and if it werent for me this place would be boring.

My ideas and plots are fantastic and yet that old guy blunders along and survives it all and somehow comes out on top….

Well, I am upping the ante now… IO am going to increase my activity and even add one more activity to my long lists of annoying the old guy!  You see, I am bitter, twisted and proud.  You know what that all means.  I have had it!  I am going to root on Everton from now on!  After all, we have a lot in common!  They live next to this stinking winner that overshadows them all the time as they do all the hard work and heavy lifting.   They get ignored, pushed around and stopped at every turn.  Somehow their best plots and plans go up in smoke.  Better yet, they were the home of David Moyes… muwahahahahaha  Did the old guy ever tell you all how he despises David Moyes?

So, I Ginger come out of the  closet and declare I Ginger am a Everton Toffees fan. The BLues are also nicknamed the Dogs of War…. sort of fitting isn’t it?  hehehehe  Watch as this dog of war takes it to the old guy….

dscf4795-His truck is blue so naturally I painted Everton on the door…. mmuwahahahahahahah

4-22_surrounded_by_collies-Notice the color of the wall?  Well naturally it needed Everton painted on it… snicker…

dscf8699-notice the new hammock is blue so naturally I had to dump him out of it and write Everton on it…. muwahahahahaha

dscf8693-wait… what is this?  What do you mean my blankie is a Red one with Liverpool written on it?  A red Liverpool food dish and you painted my plotting room.. RED????????????????  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!  When I take over the world I will plow Anfield under… what?  You yawned… oh this means war old guy…  remember I am in charge of the blog now… muwahahahahah

We collies enjoyed Dad’s day off with him. It made it to 21 degrees F so we played outside with him, then he got all the tractors out, plowed the driveway, drove the tractors around and then came in and was going through the channels to see what was on TV when he found Liverpool live against Bolton in FA Cup action.  So, we watched the game and it was pretty silent for most of it.  The Officiating was pretty terrible and Bolton scored off a somewhat questionable call in the second half to take the lead.  A few shots off the post kept us interested but then Bolton was penalized and down to ten men and Liverpool began to threaten, but the movement that made them so dangerous last year just wasn;t there.  Dad was grumbling, we collies were sullen when all of a sudden very late in the game the “swirl” as dad calls it appeared. They began to move like they did last year and began to pound the goal. We all began to take notice and the Reds put the pressure on.  Then at the 86th minute Sterling kicked in a pass that scored and we collies roared our approval as dad cheered.  There hasn’t been a lot to cheer this year for while the Reds are now winning during the season they clearly won’t even get in this race, but they can make the top 5…..  Stoppage time began and the Reds were still pounding and dad was on his feet urging them on while we collies waited… then… in stoppage time with the game almost over Coutinho flipped one in and it was an excuse for us collies to bark our heads off in celebration as the Reds were moving on in the next round in the FA Cup!  This was the 700th appearance by Gerrard who will be leaving at the end of the year… so perhaps the Reds can capture the FA Cup to end his career at Anfield.  We shall see…..   a few pics from today….


–time to go in yet?

-Dad taking Annie down the road for a spin….

dscf9511-Wow!  The Reds have not lost in three games, the Canadiens are coming back to life and the surprising Maple Leafs won another game last night 4-1 even with a huge fight.   The Leafs are 8-1-1 in the last tens games and are in the hunt for the division lead.  We collies howled our support and celebrated.   Lad liked the fight the most while Ginger plotted on how to melt the ice so they would all fall down…

– When is the next game dad… we can;t wait. Lad is ready for the next fight…sky and dad-1

A cold, rainy weekend.  So, Dad put the blade on the tractor, got us out between the rain storms to run and looked for a new job and listened to the Reds lose again, the Canadiens win again and was highly entertained by the Maple Leafs as they continue their all offense, no defense hockey games which are proving to be the most highly entertaining games dad has heard in a while.

We collies yawned at the Reds.. they looked horrible again…. the Canadiens give us opportunity to celebrate and the Leafs, well it is overwhelming!

Snow is coming and dad is not liking it.  But, Old Allis is ready and itching to give the snow a real butt kicking.   As for use collies, we think we will just take a nap! 🙂

The collies continue to move forward and appear to be a more tightly united group the past few days.

-In other news I have been quiet about the Liverpool Reds lately not because they have been mediocre but just to see what the team looks like. I have not been happy…. I think they have been playing way under their potential…. the rough start has made me wonder about it all… but I didn;t want to complain to early… give it time I kept saying…. It takes time for a bunch of new players to come together and today a lackluster first half made me begin to doubt this team would ever amount to anything. Then lightning in a bottle was unleashed when Lallana booted in a fantastically played goal. Anfield came to life and so did I and the collies.  The second half began and before we knew it the Baggie had answered and it was 1-1 and I really began to believe this team was done for the year.  But, never fear…. down came the Reds in a furious attack and Henderson answered with the go ahead and Anfield erupted as the collies and I danced with joy. As the game wore on Liverpool played some tough defense and the offense seemed to be getting a bit of rhythm going.  The Reds won and now are in 6th place.  I believe the worst is behind them now but this team has a  lot more work to do before they can become a contender.  But, at least they are heading in the right direction and Anfield at least sounded like it has its voice back now…… meanwhile I loved that the bitter sick and twisted had another loss across the park today… hehehehe  GO REDS!!!!



In tractor news I finally have the starter fixed and put back in the WC and the gas leak appears stopped… hopefully.  The WC has given me fits the past year and everytime I want to take her to a show, parade or what have you she pukes something minor and finds a way for me to have to repaint after she stubbornly fights with me as I repair her.  A more stubborn machine I have never seen….  She still has a light miss but when this cold , rainy weather stops I will fix that too… but over the winter, I will be weighing whether to sell my WC to buy something else or to keep her… I have a love/hate relationship with the tractor for I love her when she runs and she can pull wonderfully, but she always has a Ginger like stunt up her manifold and I am tiredof fighting with this tractor.   We shall see….


ball, ball, ball…..

Several things to cover today….. first the Liverpool Reds.  They kicked the snot out of Tottenham and finally looked like the team they were last year. Could it be they have finally come together?  Next week is Aston Villa and with the Reds only three points out of first the fever is catching!  With Gerrard punching one in today the collies and I were cheering and dancing for the first time this year.  If they knock out Aston Villa they could be on their way for the hunt.  We shall see…. but they have to beat such teams as Manchester City which last week they failed at.  But, it is early and a lot of changes have been made.   So, time to celebrate!!!



Onto tractor news.  Finally got old Molly, the 1941 Allis Chalmers WC paint repaired and she looks great!     Old Molly is my most stubborn tractor…. now you are asking how can a tractor be stubborn?  Well, old tractors are like old cars. They have personalities, quirks and seem human much of the time.  Molly is stubborn.  She fights me on everything I do…. but, she grudgingly gives and then when repaired sits there looking like “what’s next human?  Bring it on?”  I’ve threatened to sell her many a time, but she knows better.  If I needed a tractor in an emergency she would be my choice for whatever I needed to move she would do it…. just to prove she could.   Old Allis would faithfully do it, and Annie the Case SC would be all too willing and would get the job done. But, Molly would knock down the walls to do it for she thrives on hard work… the harder the better.

dscf8858– Old Molly in the winter… it’s only -15 out here.. no big deal….

-Today I changed the transmission fluid and filter in my HHR.  What is the big deal you say?  Well, for those who don;t know it has no dipstick to check the fluid and when you fill it up you have to run it through the gears and leave it running while you remove the overflow drain plug and fill it until it comes out the overflow.  Well, ya know what Chevrolet?  I have a 1949 Case SC that you do the same thing too… and it also has a canister oil filter instead of a spin on just like you!  70 years later  car companies have went back to what tractors were doing 70 years ago… the more things change the more they stay the same….. I also fixed the dash board light by replacing something Ginger called a “cellynoid for the charcoal canister.”  It worked…. so I felt good about that today too.  I also hung up a new light in my garage and can actually see on all sides now in the dark! YAY!!!

dscf4795-Collies Transport Unit #1 is ready to go and the collies are cheering! Since I fixed the garage door also, now it can get in and out too!

-So, it has been a productive weekend!  Tomorrow it is all collie day all day except for a hour with the tractors!    The collies want to share something with you that I shared with them…….

collies 3– Dad told us this and we agree…  “We love old tractors for old tractors have souls.” – Roger Welsch   That they do and we collies were flattered when dad added… “”And so do collies and that is why we love them too.”

It was a sad day listening to the Reds first game on Sunday after the loss of Smoke. But, listen we did and it was a great game that the Reds won getting off to a great start for the season.  There was no cheering here however.  But we would like to think they won one for the Smoke!


This weekend they take on Manchester City and this will be a war and a true test of how good they are after all the changes.  We will be cheering, although not with quite the same gusto yet…..  the pain is too deep yet but we want to see the Reds get off to a great start!  So… GO REDS !!!!!!!!!  You can listen on talksport.com at 8:30 on Sunday morning….the rumor mill is grinding out there will be a big signing… let us hope so…..

YNWA takes on a special meaning this season……



Before the game we will take a moment to remember….
