Wonder what he wants for it?
It would certainly be nice when done up.  Probably worth a lot too!

I'll give you a definition of real depression and Sadness Bob..... You have the money, you just don't have the inclination or motivation for anything, even the things you once loved. :0(  I look at that now and think wouldn't it be great when it was all restored and looking beautiful sitting there running.
The next thought is " And then what am I going to do with it?"

There is only one thing in life I want now, I'll never be able to have it so everything else, especially material things, just don't matter.
Fked up isn't it?  Other people like yourself would love to be able to have things like this and would appreciate them so much.
I'm probably the only guy in the whole world who's Mrs nags him to buy toys but I make excuses in my own mind not to.
Couple of things I want though. I'm not quite dead yet!   :'(

God I hate winter. Plays hell with me.

I did see the guy also has a lister Jr that's nicely done up. On a transport and all but being a tight arse I spose, $1000 seems a bit steep to me.
I spose our American mates would probably knock the guy over in the rush to get to it at that price!

Now if I could find myself a little Kubota tractor, that would make me happy!

Hey Glort, Once again you inspire me to do better by your honest appraisal of life and its opportunities and pitfalls.
I do know that Boral have an old kubota lawn mower in one of the back sheds, 3 cylinder diesel been sat there for at least six years. You could try contacting the manager: Michael Thomas at the Boral sawmill, Mill lane, Junction Hill, Grafton, NSW 2460

I wish I had a missus that encouraged me to spend money on my obsessions but then again I guess I don

Sorry guys, not quite sure what happened there but I managed to post half way through typing, as I was saying I`m glad I don`t have a missus that encourages me to spend money on my obsessions, I am quite capable of that sort of irresponsibility on my own.

Bob

What a thing of beauty! https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/trafalgar/other-antiques-art-collectables/vintage-4hp-globe-white-gasoline-engine-stationary-engine/1185796731

Pornography for stationary engine heads!

Hey Buddy, been thinking about your description of depression. It`s similar to mine except that in my honest opinion it`s not about embracing material things, it`s about understanding and sharing the knowledge of material things and enjoying the journey. People in the future will thank you for your efforts and the legacy of accumulated knowledge and wisdom you have left them. Heaven forbid some of them might even learn a thing or two about life, facing their demons and even diesel engines.

Bob.
