I was a featured member over at TBN

I don't know if anyone is interested but I was this months featured member over at Tractorbynet. It is a group very much like this one that caters to the agricultural community. This was an interview I did that would give people a glimps into my personal life. I thought I would share it if anyone was interested.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Very cool, Timber. Did ya give us a blurb?

By the way, I got a chuckle out of the PHD tool comment. I had a brain lock and thought, What University sold him a PhD in Posthole setting?" Then I realized you meant a PHD [Post Hole Digger], and not PhD, [Doctorate in Philosophy].

I NEED more coffee this morning.

Thank you Tom. I mention BF all the time posting around the Internet. It is part of my lifestyle LOL. The interview was a lot of fun to do. That's funny about the PHD.

Foo should do this. It would be fun to see some other sides of the posters here.

Yes it sure did, I had a double compound skull fracture and I have a synthetic plate in my skull to this day
I went through some very tough years as a kid.

Thank you, it was a fun interview to do. The tractor is a great toy, I mean great piece of equipment. It completely opens the world up to new projects

I was thinking that too, TBN has the same kind of membership that BF does. To be honest these 2 boards are very similar in that respect to their subject matter.

What kind of a water garden are you building? Will it be a pond with fish?

It will be a koi pond. It has 2 pools 1 elevated to flow into the lower pool. It is about 40 x 25 feet and 4 feet deep. It is pretty elaborate, I have built several of them over the years but this 1 is the most elegant of them all. I am planning butterfly koi f or this one.
