    My condolences for your loss of your Uncle Billy. I rejoice for the blessing of your son. It's amazing how people can seemingly come to life again through their children. Look at Merle Haggard's sons...or Hank III...almost spooky. Even nephews like your son...Lucky Tubb comes to mind too. There's a few tunes on his album Damn the Luck where you'd swear it was his Uncle Ernest singing...

    And I have loved that tele ever since the you posted it a few years ago. I don't know if your son plays or not, but that guitar could be a great heirloom if he treasures that sort of thing. Did you make it originally for your Uncle Billy?

    On the farm where I grew up in a small town in southwest Michigan, we had a 1960 John Deere 3010 diesel, a 1953 Ford Golden Jubilee and a 1941 Farmall Model B, but the farmer up the road who did a lot of work with us had a Case 730, 830 and 930. I got to drive the 830 and 930 a few times when we were putting up hay. Great tractors. Miss those days.

    Here's a picture of Mini Me on the Farmall back in the day:
